Adventures of a Zone Leader

How are you all? Hope everything is going well! Well there are some things that happened this week. Hope you all enjoy this message.
Well this week we had to go and help a sister missionary because she was really sick. So Monday we didn't work, which was really disappointing for me. But the next day I thought that we would be working but I was wrong. One of the missionaries in our zone called us and told us that in his bathroom there is a hole where you can see from the roof into the bathroom where they shower. He told us that a girl saw him. I called the president and he told us that we had to move them ASAP. We found a room and after an hour and a half negotiating with the land lord we finally got to a price that works for both of us. The room that they had picked out was about half a mile away. And to make it more worse we couldn't rent a truck to help us move all their stuff. So to do it Peruvian style we carried it all to there new house that was up like 2 hills. It was the most exhausting thing. And that day we also didn't teach.
Also this Saturday we had a little get together with the missionaries that had birthdays this month and I can tell you that it got a little out of hand. I won't say much but I will say that cake was thrown. And just imagine that....

But we had a really good week believe it or not. We are able to baptize a little kid from the family that we baptized a while back. I am sorry that I don't have pictures I am going to ask that people to send me pictures.
Well that was the highlight of my week. Hope you all are well and reading your scriptures everyday!

Short on Time

I am a little short on time. I have to do some forms to send to the President. 
And then at a 11 I have to leave early from internet to help some missionaries write-in their family so they can get married. So Just wanted to let you know that I don't have much time to send pictures or write. This is how it will be for a while. I while always strive to write you guys the little details that I can about my week. But don't expect anything else please.
We had a great week. We reached our goal of 85 contacts. It was the first time since I got here to this area that we made our goal. I always did more than that in my other area but here my companion hates contacting. I make him do it anyway. heheh.
But the past Saturday we went to help a family get written-in for the wedding that we are planing this month. But we got in a little fender bender and we had to stop on the side of the road for 3 hours and fix the car. It was a disaster.
Well that is about how much I am going to be able to write. Love you all and hope you all have a great week!

Magnolias Zone

Well this week has been a little bit better and I will tell you all why!
This week we didn't have a pile of things do to! It was really nice to focus on my area for a little bit. As Zone leader we hardly have time to think about us. We always have to be thinking of the other missionaries. But we had more time than usual to be in our area so that was nice.
We had to help some other missionaries sand the walls in their house because the lady got all up tight that they were going to move. So we did a service project sanding walls for 2 hours. That was fun! (Sarcasm added) But no I really enjoyed it. At the end we had a big water fight! It was awesome!
This week my companion and I don't have transfers! But there are 5 people in our zone that do! It is sad to see their names there but hey that is what God wants! I am sad and happy that Elder NiƱo will be my comp I still have lots to learn from him! I know God has a plan for everyone and he knows the good that we can do here! We are on our way to success here in Magnolias Zone!
We are getting ready to baptize a family this week! They are amazing! They have been investigatores for a while now! I am glad to see that they finally are going to get baptized this Saturday! I know this letter is short but i just want you all to know that I love helping other people and bring them the truth of Christ to their lives so that they can have enternal families!
I promise that today I will send pictures!! I am sorry for the delay!!
