I am still enjoying it here, love everyone, and quite honestly that its a miracle that I havent been robbed yet! My new companion is from Argentina and he is an awesome missionary Elder Lujan. He works hard from start to finish, his only flaw is that he spends all his money from the mission that we get for the month, in a week. He actually came here with no money and I have felt super bad and buying the majority of his meals. Its kind of against mission rules but I cant really watch my compañero die!! But he is awesome and we had a photo shoot of comparing muscles. His biceps are the size of my legs, so yeah, I feel a little inadaquete. (check my spelling, havent spoken English in 3 and a half months now). Elder Lujan has 13 months on the mission and the ward already loves him, and they know he is only going to help. I miss Elder  Alonso a bit but not too much, honestly the ward misses him more than I do, as some of the sisters cried when saying goodbye to him.

We now have 10 investigators and we are focusing more on a couple named Antonio Martinez and Laura. They are legit and Laura said that when she went to church this sunday, she found the peace and security she has been looking for!!!! That really got me pumped when she said that and we will be visiting them tomorrow night. They are having some economic troubles right now and it is pretty tough, but we introduced them to some members who had the same ordeal. Laura was kind of hectic until Hermana patiño shared her testimony that we can always have all the things we need as long as we have our faith, the hope in things to come. After the testimony she was all good. She enjoyed Relief Socitey and plans to attend an activity this thursday!!! I really love being a missionary, not gonna lie. 

No more funky foods but we are actually starting a challenge with our president to read the Book of Mormon from start to finish, while marking all the words referencing Jesus Christ and his names, in addition to those referencing the Atonement, sin, forgiveness, and repentance. It would mean a lot to me if you guys could join me in this challenge, it changes everything and gives you the idea of what the Book Of Mormon really is about. I know that you'll get something out of it like I am. 

That's it, but know that I love you guys, miss you tons, but I know this is by far the best decision I have ever made in my life (besides deciding to come to the Earth of course).

1)said goodbye to Elder Alonso
2)First thing Elder Lujan did when he got to the house was take out a suitcase and unpack it. It was literally all weights.
3) Our second day here, and we got a gringo named Elder Atwood!!!!
4)We were bored so we had a pose off. Then we had a muscle off, and I lost.
5)We climbed on top of our roof to take some photos, pretty sweet
