Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make me a match. Find me a Find, Catch me a Catch! That’s right ladies and gents! I’d like to be referred to as "The Matchmaker" from now on please! Why? Because we are getting some people hitched this Friday so the wife can get baptized!!! BOOM! I’m already having more success in these 4 weeks than I did in my 4 months in Valle de Chalco. Maybe it’s because the ward actually works and doesn’t hate the Elders!!!
Now there’s not much that I can report on, but there is one experience I’d like to share. Thursday my comp had a leader meeting he had to go to with the other district leader and the zone leaders. So, I got ditched with the other district leaders comp (who’s about as interesting and talks as much as a stiff board) and another Elder (who no one can stand being with for two minutes and during this time was being baby sat by the zone leaders). Now as you can imagine, I was THRILLED to be with these guys. I knew that I didn’t trust either of these guys in a lesson, so I made a choice. A choice to walk. A choice to walk all day. In the sun. With the stooges in tow. It was my only option... my neck got so burnt.
It’s not all kicks and giggles down here, and sometimes it straight hurts. But it’s the right and best decision I have ever made! Thanks for taking the time to read this even though it’s a short letter this week! I love you all. As Always!!!
