It smells like fish here.....

It smells like fish here……

That´s what Hna. Collette said when she got out of the taxi when we got to our apartment. And Hna. Collette is the name of my new comp. She´s from New Mexico (the NEW one) and her cousins are the ones in our ward in Idaho! Small world, huh???

So this week has been great. Hna. Collette is trying to get ahold of the language and she´s doing a great job. She´s actually fluent in French (she lived there for 4 years) and she was really surprised when she got called Spanish-speaking. But she´s doing really great and she only gets Spanish mixed up with French a TINY bit :)

We´ve been working a lot to find new investigators and we found an especially great family this week. Lili and Rocky (like Balboa) are the parents and they have two kids (Tomas and Kevin, 13 and 8). Lili has been looking into a lot of churches because she really wants something for her kids and family and she really loved the idea of the youth programs. Unfortunately we found them on Sunday afternoon, so they couldn´t go to church in the morning, but they´re excited to go next week. We´re going to have another lesson with them on Wednesday and hopefully get a baptismal date.

Aurelia isn´t progressing as much any more... we´re going to have a fuerte lesson with her today to see if she really wants to or if she just wants to be our friends... hey, it´s like a DTR of missionary work! It´s going to be great!

The work is a lot different with a newbie... she´s not afraid to talk to people, but it´s definitely weird being the only one who understands and can respond to the questions. It´s weird being in charge of everything all the time, so I´m slowly making her in charge of more stuff, but don´t tell her! I want it to be a surprise and then by the end of the transfer I can just be cruising along and she won´t even realize it!

Well, I´m about out of time, but I love you all! The church is true and you should share something about it with your neighbors!
Especially you, Mom and Dad. I know those neighbors aren´t Mormons...

Love you!
Hna. LaPray
