Hey everyone! Passing through the first week of this transfer with my new comp Elder Reid! I'm getting to know him better and we're seeing good progress in our area Sochiloa!
We had quite an experience this last thursday, with our new mission president actually, President Myers. He joined us to an appointment with our investigator René. We came to the house, and we found René alone, his wife wasn't there. We were talking, President Myers was getting to know René...and WOOM! We get hit with rain showers and wind! Then, the light went out! We pulled out our phones with the neat little flashlight and we continued. Then René gets a call from his wife, Gabi, telling him to come pick her up because she doesn't want to drive in the rain. We all decided to go, so we all packed into President Myers's van and we went to go pick up Gabi. We arrived and René hopped off to go with his wife, and the rest of us went back to René's house. While we're on our way back, I get a call from the sister missionaries. Due to the rain, they were stuck in a little store, and they wanted a ride. SO! We went and picked them up, got lost a little, and then we dropped them off by a member's house. THEN! We went back to René's house and had a very powerful lesson. It was a crazy experience that none of us expected, but it all turned out for the better haha.
We also are receiving quite a few fruits from our labor, or rather, food from our labor. In that same night, René gave us some nice chipotle chicken with some rice to take home for dinner! Oh man, it was so good!!! Also, we visited a mom and her daughter this week too. A member talked to us about them and presented us to them and we had a lesson. The next day, or the day after, they call us and they invite us to eat lunch with them! Wow! I wasn't expecting that! I guess we made quite the impression for them to invite us over.
So, this last week was quite interesting, and we're going to see what we can do in this week to come while the days are getting hotter and hotter, and while we keep drinking more and more water each day haha.
Here's to another week!
