Hey everyone! Finally done with yet another transfer in the mission, and it looks like I'm staying in Sochiloa for another month and a half! My companion left to another area, and I received a new companion. My new companion is..................a gringo! An elder from the United States! Woah! I received Elder Reid, from Virginia. He has 1 year in the mission field and he's a chill guy! This is the first time I met him, and we're going to rock Sochiloa! It's not often putting two white guys together in Mexico, but I guess it sometimes happens! This should be fun haha...
Also! This last week, we got to meet our new mission president! We had a special zone conference last week and we got to meet President and Sister Myers! They come from Ogden, Utah, and they introduced themselves and also talked about interesting things that we need to apply in the mission field. One of them is that we need to expand our "comfort zone" in order to achieve miracles. When we do that continually, our comfort zone expands, therefore we need to give an even bigger effort in order to achieve even greater miracles! It's a really cool concept and we'll see if it works!
The rest of the time we've been working hard to find new investigators, and continue working with our investigators with their baptismal dates. We're seeing good progress with two investigators, René and Gabriella, a young couple (René is a guy's name here). We're going to keep working with faith so we can get some baptisms!
That's what's going on in our area, let's hope for the best!
Until next week!
