It really was a great week so don't worry about that! I have a new companion named Elder Hernandez hahah yeah same name but different guy! He really is pretty crazy but it has been fun to try and adapt to his style of being a leader and a missionary. I have learned a ton from him in this small time to be honest and I hope to keep learning this whole transfer. We had a really great week teaching and found the coolest of families!
They are named G, the mom, and G, the 20 year old son, then D, the 14 year old daughter, and then they have two little boys. They were able to attend church and I really think they enjoyed it a lot. They are really taking in the lessons super quickly! I really enjoy teaching a family because I have yet to baptize a family and it is really fun seeing each of the family members support each other to make sure they read and to get up for church and stuff!
Other than that we really did not do much today just chilled out washing a ton of clothes and relaxing. My companion got here super stressed from being the Assistant to the President so he enjoyed just working normal for once jajaja.
That is actually crazy that the stake is being divided! That means that Taylor won't even be in our stake anymore? Wow craziness that the work is progressing so much there at home. I always pictured that the missionaries at home just like never baptise, and surely they don't baptize at the same rate that we do, but the work of the Lord is progressing really strongly there at home it seems.
I almost have 17 months in the mission. To be honest, I really cannot believe it!
