What happens in Jonacatapec...

Tuesday was a long day. We had interviews with the president from 10 ‘til 4 with half of the zone. Afterwards, president took us to get tacos! ChaChing! We got back in our area with enough time to contact a little and then back to the house.

Wednesday was almost the same. 10 ‘til 3 we had interviews and then headed back to the area!! At around 7ish we had a good lesson with Gabby! (she's an investigator if I haven't mentioned her before).

Thursday was a pretty fun day! We headed on over to one of the areas in the zone called Jonacatapec to do special divisions because the Elders had double lessons. So we split up and off we went to the first lesson they had. It started off good, but half way through I realized that the lady was NUTS!!! She just wanted to hash out the neighbor's life, and how she loves God, and that I was white. She even asked if I had any American dollars on me that I'd be willing to give away... I said, listen lady, I've been in Mexico for almost a year, alright! Why on earth would I be huffing around cash money from America in the middle of Mexico here in the town of Jonacatapec...? So that was a little "loco” as one would say here. And as we got up to leave, she called her children out yelling, "Hey kids! Come get a picture with the white guy!!" So after the photo shoot, we finished the day and had to spend the night there. Now when you get 4 elders in one house, it's all over but the shouting. I'll leave it at we got to bed at 1:00am #rebels

Friday morning, 5:00 o'clock. We were up and moving! Getting’ er done! Barely able to keep our eyes open...but ready none the less for a meeting that we had in Ameca. The trip there, then the meeting, then the trip back took all day! So another day of not much.

Saturday was a pretty good day. We had several lessons and the last one was with the Blanco Garcia family! It went great!!! But when we finished, it was bitter sweet. They told us that they didn’t think they’d be able to go to church. BUT, they said, "you guys can haul our kids over there if you want." BOOYAH!!! It starts with the kids then it’s all over for the parents. There’s no getting out now!! *evil laugh* not a lot because of all the meetings, but not a bad week! As Always!

Stay Classy,

Elder Johns
