this week was not the best.
We did not do anything again....... Elder Belito had to go to Aguas for his visa so that blew one day. Then two days later we had a conference with Pres Hernandez and we were supposed to eat with him, but the bishop did not prepare the stuff in time so we had pizza and ate with him the next day............ I do have a crazy story though
So the ZL tells Elder Belito that he has to be at the bus station at 5, but then said 7 on monday. Then E. Magana, the mission secretary later called me and yelled at me and told me that E. Belito has to be in Agaus at 8, three hours from our place. So then E. Belito and I have to get up at 3:30 so he can finish packing and we can go. Later I drop him off at 4:40 and everyone is calling me. So I have been up since 3:30 sorting everything out, and I am just dead.
Now tomorrow I will receive my new comp. Yesterday the district leader calls says that I am going to be with a missionary who is not dedicated to the work so I am just devastated because E. Belito did not work as hard as I wanted to. So I was pretty sad mad and frustrated. At 5 in the morning I get a call from the ZL telling me that I have a different companion, I will receive Elder Ortiz.
Lots of drama for a simple transfer.
Lets get the good stuff started. A 70 AUTHORIZED OUR MISSION TO WATCH COCO. THE MOVIE. WE JUST SAW IT. OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO GOOD
So the really cool part is that we got to watch it with another zone and a bunch of elders from over there are super cool guys that I got to chat with for a second.
The even cooler part is the whole part of Coco, like the beginning part when he´s running through the city and you get to see where he is living, looks exactly like my area. Even in the Socalo, where he is shining that guy’s shoes it looks super similar to a part of my district. If you could watch it again, just imagine a tall white gringo there and boom it´s real life!!
now on to some events of the week.
We went and did our first ¨interview¨ with a AA group where an investigator of ours is attending, and it turns out its a two and a half hour initiation for all new members, which he had failed to inform us on purpose. Not gonna lie it feel like a cult. We left the room at the end of it all smelling like incense and cigarette smoke, and too much knowledge about some people´s lives. weird weird weird.
we have an investigator who called us over one day and was super worried. He is such a good guy, and he loves the gospel that we teach, and we extended the baptismal challenge to him, which he said he didn´t feel worthy of it, so we were working with him. Then he goes and watches anti-mormon material and now he is having doubts. DANGIT POLO. He´s gonna get baptized but this is definitely a freaking obstacle for him.
