Too much!

Dear everyone,

I can`t even begin to list all of the things that have happened this week. It`s been way too much. We`ve been trying to prepare our three baptismal candidates but on Tuesday we had our Zone classes like usual and the zone leaders asked me to stay afterward for 2 hours to learn a song to sing with them the next day. Then on Wednesday (the next day) we had to get up early to go to Mission Conference with President and half the mission. That usually lasts 7 hours. We sang our song and it turned out all right. Then that night we had to meet with our mission leader to finalize our plans about the Ward Family Night we were having on Friday. "La obra misional" was in charge of it and our mission leader put it all on us. He didn`t help with anything. So we had to plan that out Thursday and Friday morning during our studies. We planned it though and on Friday night we were in the chapel for 4 hours setting up, cleaning up, teaching and performing for the 40 members who showed up and then cleaning up again. We arrived at the house more then an hour late. It also rained a little bit on Thursday and Friday so everyone slept all day. Then on Saturday we spent the whole day visiting everyone we could, teaching them a short lesson and inviting them to church. On Sunday we were scrambling around for 3 hours at church trying to help the investigators and the less actives to feel comfortable and to stay for the other classes. Luckily the teacher for our Gospel Principles class didn`t show up and we had to give the class. Then we worked the rest of the day and in our last lesson of the day my head nearly exploded?! We had a soap opera-ish lesson with Alejandro, Daniel, Jacqueline, the crazy grandma, Jacqueline`s mom, and the Uncle José. The most rare and confusing situation I`ve ever seen in my life has happened in this family. Now it`s not sure if Alejandro is getting baptized... There`s still hope though.

OK! Wow, I probably wrote way too much and sounded way too negative. Truth is though, it was a horrible week. Doesn`t matter though. This week is a clean slate and we`ve gotta keep working anyway. Everythings good though. Two more weeks in this change and we`ll see what happens.

I love you all. Thanks for all the love and support! CTR always!
