Week 21: Contacting for Days

My district before the changes
Hola Familia!

So last week, right after I got out of the internet cafe, I realized I didn't tell you sooooo many things --but guess what? I used up almost all my internet time reading my 25 emails (you guys are the greatest) and now I have almost no time to write (sorry mom, I'll do better next week). Well--bullet point version of my life...

1.At the begining of this change I got a new companion Hna Sic de Guatemala.  She may be the shortest person I have ever seen she is super sweet and we are both Sister Training leaders! Loco! Yo se! [Crazy! I know!]

2. As Sister Training Leaders we go on divisions a lot, and it was nice to visit other areas see how other wards work, and also realize that part of the reason we are not seeing a ton of success in my area is because the people here are a lot harder.  We contact 100 people and we are lucky if 15 accept. Of those, about 7 will have given us a false number. Of the remaining 8, when we come back to their house, 3 of the people who answer the door claim they don't live there. That leaves us with 5--2 of which are never home--which leaves us with 3 who listen and after a week 1 with the potential of progressing. So yah, it is nice to know not all the areas in the mission are like that. But I honestly dont feel mad or disheartend because I know I am being obedient. I can be better. I can mejorar [improve] my teaching skills, but I feel good with my effort. I'm inviting, people just aren't coming :)

3. One day when I was out of my area on divisions my comp was contacting and she invited these jovenes [young people] to church but they brushed her off saying "Lambert ya nos invito" [Lambert already invited us]  No idea who they were, but nice to know I'm making a name for myself :)

4. I am trying to think of a spanish pun using  beatrice y habia tres because here they sound exactly the same.

I love you all! Peace out-- I promise a real letter next week!
