11th of August

   Well everyone another week has come and gone. This week was pretty busy, as usual. We have lots to get done here in the zone. Almost every night it just poured rain and got everyone and everything soaking wet but that meant it wasn`t that hot. Count your blessings. We had some good successes and some failures but I`ll tell you about that later. First off I want to say congratulations to Jake and Katie for finishing honorably their missions! Well done! You guys are the best!
   Okay so here in the Cima we realized that we need to look for more new investigators. So that was our big focus this week. We have been looking for references but for the most part we were unsuccessful. so we got to the point were we just decided to go tracting on Saturday. What a horrible Idea! we wasted a few precious hours going up to peoples doors just to hear them say, "we are busy right now come again later" or "we are catholic" or a five year old girl say "I`m here alone" after we had seen her grandma, when I called her out on it she went back to the good ole "we are really busy" excuse. Lame. After about two hours we gave up on that.
   The good news is that when we were visiting R H (who was confirmed on Sunday) her mom was there. We answered a few normal questions like "why do you keep the sabbath on Sunday" "don't mormons worship some dude" and questions like that. But we have an appointment to meet up with her on Thursday so hopefully that will go well. R really has a strong testimony, and is sharing it with all of her neighbors and family. She is awesome. E as well. He went to the temple last week to do baptisms for the dead and I think he really liked it. Overall they are doing really well, and we are hoping to be able to teach more people that they know.
    This past week while walking up by their house we saw a few of the national birds of El Salvador its called the Torogoz I couldn`t take a picture of it but lookit up on google. Its super cool.
    In other news we have an investigators named M, she spilled boiling beans on her feet last week but now she is all better so she could come to church. She really wants to get baptized but I want to wait a little bit to make sure that she understands everything. But she really wants to do it. I am just afraid that she will go inactive really fast without a strong testimony. So that is the job right now. Making sure she knows what she is doing. We are still on the hunt for more investigators, and trying to help out the zone with theirs. We have a family of 5 that is going to get baptized on the 30th in a ward called Campestre and we need to make sure that there is good followup there. Basically everything is going super well. My companion is awesome and this change has flown by. We are on week six which means it is almost over. hopefully I will know by next Wednesday if I am moving or not we`ll see what happens.Well thanks to all of you for writing me and I hope you all have a great week.
