Letter #25

What up everyone?! This week was pretty sweet! I have 2 new comps now! Elder Hatch and Arredondo. They are pretty rad. They are both from Utah. Elder Hatch is from South Jordan and he's 21. This is his second area here in Brownsville and he's had like 5 other comps already haha. Arredondo is from Logan and he's 19. He's been out in the field as long as me but he only went to the MTC for two weeks. This is his second area too and he's had a different companion every transfer. Its weird cause ive only had 1 comp my whole mission. Our companionship is super young. Hatch has been out for only about 8 months and Arredondo has only been out for as long as i have. I've taken over the area, which is awesome! I get to lead around and show them where to go for the first couple weeks. I can already tell this transfer is going to be totally different than my first 3 transfers. Roylance was a super fast pased Elder, worried about getting to everything on time and trying to be 50 places at once, which is good i guess. It definately got me into the "work hard" ethic that i needed. But now its taken kind of a twist and calmed down a little bit with my new comps. Maybe i can enjoy the mission a little more in a different way but still be doing my job haha. Our President, President Maluenda always says "Disfrutan su mision" I think thats what my focus is going to be this next transfer and the whole rest of my mission haha.
For New Years we had to be in early. So our zone met at the church around 6 and all the Elders balled and then everyone got together and we watched Mulan!! It was pretty sweet. It felt kinda weird. I havent sat down to watch a movie in a while hah.
As of now, we are working with like 5 investigators, but none of them really have Baptisimal dates set or anything so we dont really have anyone too solid we are working with. We've been working with Ana, Red's wife, she's been really hard to work with. She just pulls up random excuses and stuff just to not progress to baptism. Like yesterday we found out that she is all of a sudden Catholic, when 3 days ago she wasnt. haha. We'll keep working with her. She's came to church for like 2 months straight now, so she could get baptized any time. She's an awesome girl though. Im hoping she'll come around soon.
Thank you guys! Love you all!
Elder Brian
