This week was pretty good. I walked alot... it seems like that we walk alo there in Las Flores. The place isnt very big and so we pretty much walk all of the area everyday or every 2 days. The work here is a little difficult. I try to keep a good mind set about the work, but sometimes it is difficult. One of the things that hurts me the most here is when we do contacts and we say that we are missionaries from the Church of Chirst and the people say "no thanks, i dont go to that church." I feel bad because that dont know what they are rejecting... I wish i could show them that what they are practicing is not what God wants. I wish that they would at least listen for 5 minutes if that. But that is the mission sometimes....
I have been here for almost 4 months now mom. It seems like a long time, but i hav e at least another transfer here which is 1 1/2 months. Maybe even 3. We will see what happens. I like Las Flores because it is calm, but the work is alittle hard. And today we went to visit the lagoon which they have here just outside of the city. It was beautiful and they have the largest rodent in the world there on their island. I took some fotos. I forgot what they are called but here they call them carpinchos. their leather is supposedly the softest in the world. It was fun!!!
Conference was awesome and it is really a blessing to have the Church of Christ on the Earth today with a Prophet!!!! I absolutley LOVED conference!!!
