We're moving - A visit to Huixtla

Hey family! les extraño mucho. entonces en esta carta voy a escribir in puro español... no es cierto. jajaja. Just kidding, but it was a weird week.
Basically we’re moving houses because our land lady is insane. I can’t explain everything right now but were moving to a 2 story house and were pumped! We’ll be moving in on Friday. One of the great things that happened this week is my companion and I gave the sister training leaders a blessing in English. Because they both speak English they asked if we wanted to give the blessing in English and we were like . . . ."I don’t know, I’ve never given one in English before" so it was a super great experience! We also traveled to one little city in our area called Buenos Aires and worked with some of the less actives and found some new people to teach. It’ll be nice to visit there every week and start helping the members come back to church. It’s hard for them because its 45 min away and church starts at 8 in the morning. We went on exchanges this week with the elders of Huixtla! Super fun! I went over there with Elder Martinez (different elder than my old companion in Tonala!) and we worked hard! Huixtla is a little city about an hour away from Tapachula. It’s super green and kind of reminds me of Tonala. We ate some hamburgers, slept in their house . . . . with AC!!!, and taught a ton. One of their investigators has a little ranch and one of his goats got loose so we helped him catch it and throw it back in its pen, super fun and good journal material. When we came back home we traveled back in a van (combi) that has 15 seats. Guess how many people were in the combi . . . . 20. Twenty people were slammed into a 15 seat combi. Another great story for the missionary journal. This week we also found a new man to teach named Samuel. He’s a great guy but has had a lot of problems in the past. He’s got a ton of questions too but has a true desire to learn more. We also found a young man named Obeth. He doesn’t have much of a religious background but he seems interested.
It was another hard but good week. I love and miss you all tons and I can’t wait to hear from you next week.

Sorry it was short . . . I ran out of time. Love ya’ll!!!
