A little San Miguel culture fact in case you choose to visit some day... when approaching a friend or answering a call, etc. You generally will shout, "HOY!" in a high pitched voice before begining to talk.... I have been a while here in San Miguel now and I have kinda got used to doing it so just be prepared if I do it when I get home. It's not that I'm shouting at you... Its a good thing:)
This week was crazy! We couldn't work Monday or Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday we had some tough responses from investigators that had been progressing. It's really sad to see people turn away from the spirit they had felt, but not much we can do at this point.
Friday and Saturday was the carnival of San Miguel. This thing is HUGE. All of us missionaries here had to go to other cities to work because the entire city converts into a huge party. Everyone goes... We met quite a few people this week from the states and other central american countries who had come in for the carnival. We went to work with the assistants and got to sleep in air conditioning for 2 nights so it was awesome.
Sunday we went to church and then visited all the investigators we hadn't been able to visit all week. Sadly not many had progressed without us there, but a few have gotten kinda far into the Book of Mormon so that made us happy.
This next week we are praying that the ward helps out with divisions so we can get a bunch of stuff in, but not quite sure who will be willing to help us, so pray that the ward members want to visit this week with us!!!
Thanks for everything, hope you all have a great week!
My new comp Elder Acosta (we are in a trio) super cool guy... we talk baseball a ton so its awesome. But he is a Yankee fan/ Jeter worshiper (he's from Penn) so generally we will could never be best friends haha
