Just an FYI:
Alex's 19th birthday is March 6th, next Friday. If you could email him a note to say. "Happy Birthday " by Monday, since he only emails on Mondays, I know he would appreciate it!
This week has been a whole lot better, than the last, thank you for your prayers! My companion and I are now getting along way better, that's because we finally talked it out. We had companionship inventory and it helped a ton!! Our zone also had a zone conference and interviews with the president to check up on us. I went in, and complained a bit about my companion, but then I realized as I was talking with him is my patriarchal blessing, that it says I will be an instrument for change for my companions BUT also how I will change as well. It's possible that this is when I have to change. After that, I just asked President Mejorada how I can love my companion. He smiled at me and said there is absolutely no answer for that. If I ask how I can do something, it is saying that there is a set way, a limit, on how I can do it. But you cant put a limit on something as infinite as love. So that has been in my head all week.
But news on our investigators, we are leaving behind tons of them, because they aren't attending church and aren't completing their promises. It has been sad but at the same time I understand it. We have a short time here in our lives to serve with all our time, might, heart, mind, and strength. As hard as it is, we have to spend our time with those that have been prepared. And we have a couple like that! Their names are Antonio, Laura, and Ronaldo, their kid. They are loving every part of the gospel, and even though they live on the opposite side of Cortazar, they have walked to church the past two sundays! The only problem is the money they need to marry, but that's on track!! The members are visiting them almost every day and it is amazing to see all of the ward so involved with their progress!! We have stopped asking people if they can stop by their house, because they do it without us asking!! It is straight up a miracle with them.
Nothing more really, just that everything has calmed down and evened out with us. It is legit working as hard as I am, I have permanent eye shadows from work and when we arrive home, we plan for the next day, and I just fall into bed exhausted. I have really never been more satisfied in my work in all the 5 months I have here. Just know i love you and miss you guys tons!! Have fun in Mexico!!!

2)So the package was repacked a few times and was missing vital foods
3)It rained a ton, I wore a jacket, but It only covered my top half, I turned out looking like a super man wannabe.
4) we had been hunting the rat for forever!! And our neighbor poisoned it, so it turned up dead. We, being gracious missionaries, brought it to her house to show Sister Zenaida. She reacted pretty much how mom would have
5)our awesome investigators
6)We climbed a big hill to arrive at lunch sunday, so it took a while for the other missionaries
7)whenever we throw out stuff, we have to burn it because of all the phone numbers, names, addresses, etc. I enjoy it. However, we made the mistake of starting to burn it inside our house, AND we dont have windows, vents, air conditioning. Still smells like smoke
8) also, put up my seahawks flag!! REPRESENT!!!
