well this week was alright. we didnt find any new invesigators though. that was a bit sad. well, i still have not got your package yet. yes, i got the package of letters from the activity day girls. tell them they rock! i dont know anything about mothers day. what day exactly is mothers day? jaja well, i think i may get transfered on sunday. i have been here three transfers now, and elder soderquist only has about 3 more left in his mission. i think he will stay here and a new missionary will come in.
yeah, we are still working with samantha. its kind of hard though. elder soderquist and i have different ideas on how to work with her but we cant come up with what to teach her. but it will all go well in the end. its just hard cause she is 13 and i think she thinks we are stiffs. so we are trying to get to know her better and get her to open up. we did divisions last week, so i went to maldonado again, elder milne my district leader came to cerri. i was with elder vaterlauss. another yankee like me. and to boot this is his first transfer in the mission. he is straight out of the mtc. so i was comp mayor. that was scary jaja. i was technically the one with "more experience." but it went well. we found a family in his area and taught them the first lesson! and i found out that they had already investigated but stopped. so we set up a cita for when milne and vaterlauss could pass by. from what i heard it went well! that was my official spiritual high because i was trusted with me responsible for an area for a day and i didnt screw up jaja. they even trusted me with teaching their invesitgators who have fechas. yeah, i am pretty close with a couple families here in cerri. one is the arroyo family. the mom and daughter are members, the dad not, but they are all amazing. they love the missionaries, and they were baptized like eight months ago as well. i also am close to the alonzo family. they have a lot of kids, two of whom are preparing to serve missions. i pretty much just love this area, it may be one of the areas i may visit after i finish my mission! but yeah, that is all. i love you mom and i will talk to you soon!
love, elder jones
