Its been a pretty rad week to say the least. Raymondville is awesome! Its a super small town about 35 minutes outside of Harlingen of about 9,000 people and we cover half of it and one other town named Lyford which is a town of like 500. Haha. They are super small towns. It reminds me a ton of the Ranch and down in Loa. I love it. The people are really nice. Almost no one speaks spanish and everyone is cowboy. Now i actually feel like Im in Texas haha. i just hope i dont leave the area with a rich Texas accent saying y'all and howdy all the time haha. My comp is Elder Nichols. I love the kid to death already. He reminds me so much of Ford. Super nice and hilarious. He's been out for about a year or so. But he just got to the Texas McAllen mish this transfer cause he was medicaly transfered out of Nicaragua. He had a crazy crazy accident down there. Nicaragua is pretty dangerous and to put the story short, he was jumped. Had to do an emergency surgery in Nicaragua and then he flew home and recovered for about 3 months and then got recalled to here. He's awesome! He's from Colorado.
We are in a bike area, which im super stoked about. We dont have too many people we are working with as of now. But we are teaching a less-acitve and her two daughters who arent baptized and they are all set to be baptized next week! We're pretty excited about that.
One pretty funny experience we had this week. We were teaching one of our other investigators and his girlfriend about the Law of Chastity. ;) Those lessons are always fun. And the teaching in Nicaragua is totally different than here in Texas and Nichols isnt really too used to it at all. in Nicaragua he said they teach just super straight up to people and here, if you do that you can offend people pretty badly. So we started the lesson and Nichols just breaks out and pretty much tells them both that they were fornicating (thats the word he used) and they needed to stop. haha. They girlfriend just looks at us and is just like "you guys really think you can come in here and do that" It was hilarious. I couldnt help but just laugh. It was super funny. But in the end the lesson turned out pretty good and lets just hope they took our advice and are working on getting married ;)
Thats about it. Im loving the new area! Im loving the mission. Thank you guys for the support and everything! Hope y'allhave a good week ;) Love you guys!
