Well it's Cinco de Mayo today, but honestly they don't even do anything at all. I didn't even remember that it was cinco de mayo until mom told me. Well I just had a random thought...9 years ago today I hit my first home run off of Scott Andros in little league with a broken arm..remember that Dad? Time goes by fast. Mom I hope you are excited for the call! It's the last one...wow. I'm also excited to see Lynn, Paulette, and grandma and grandpa. That's going to be fun. That's too bad Jami and Tyler can't be there, but it's okay they're doing important things and we'll see each other soon enough. That's weird the think about. That's cool that I'll be home before she has it though. I hope that Grandpa Smith gets his 5th generation photo! He is super old, but way healthy that's nuts. Tell him congratulations for me and don't tell him I said he's super old...haha. Tell Aunt Easter congrats of getting her masters degree that's so cool. Make sure you all tell Samantha congrats and everything with her wedding this Wednesday! Take bunch of pictures please.
Well this week went by faster than any week this transfer! We are now starting week 6 of the transfer which is the last week of the transfer. Who knows what will happen. Things could change up a bit. Well we had some good days this week. We taught a lot more, so things seem to be looking up. We had splits with a district leader on Tuesday, went to a district meeting on Wednesday, had the long leadership meeting on thursday, and stayed overnight with the assistants in order to go to the mission council on Friday. We received a lot of good instruction from Pres Reeves like always. We don't have much time with him. I learned a lot of good things and me and my companion feel ready for our zone meeting this Tuesday. We also have interviews with Pres. on Thursday. They are his last interviews with the mission. Not for us though. He told us that he is going to do final interviews with our generation right before he leaves hehe :P we're special. And then, like you know, we are going to Skype on Sunday. It should be a good week. We have some good appointments set for this week, and two ward activities that we are still putting on, one in Reforma and one in Tetenco. It should be good.
On...Saturday of this week we taught a few people that are from this apostate group from the reorganized church...yeah it's pretty odd that they are gotten all the way out here too. It's super strange teaching them because they believe in almost everything we do they just are wrong in a few things. One of them said that they had been thinking a lot about he scripture in the bible that says "the truth will set you free" and he asked "I don't know what that means exactly...how can we know what the truth is and how does it set you free?" My comp looked at me and I didn't know what to say on the spot. It was kinda of nerve racking because we thought that they were the leaders of the group and that they were going to say something to us. The spirit helped us so much and we read scriptures in the Book of Mormon and D&C in order to help him. That brought up other subjects and then we were able to talk about how their church (group) is different and that they need to find the truth of all things. It was great. Pretty interesting experience teaching them. Well keep up the good work. SEE YOU ON SUNDAY!!! WOOO :)
