We had a pleasant week. Nothing too crazy.

Yesterday were Tranfer calls. We didn't get a call, but there are
going to be a few changes in the zone. That should be interesting to
see how everything pans out.

We have had a slow week. Not to much happened. It has been hard.

Stay strong!

It has been very nice here. Not too hot most of the time.

SALVADOR GOT BAPTIZED!!!! I got to go up to the north to see it. It
was a sweet experience. He is doing well. While we were in the north
the elders there were helping Sam move so we helped. His wife is
getting baptized in Colombia this Saturday. It was good to see Sam

We got several new Investigators this week. The ZLs found a Mexican
named Moises and wee stopped by. He was asleep but there were three
more of his coworkers/housemates that were there. We taught them
instead. It was funny; they were just sitting there watching Copa
America shirtless. One is apparently a Christian Afghan who speaks
perfect Spanish and is a Mexican citizen. We set up a return
appointment, and when we came we talked with Moises instead. He is
super prepared, but don't want to come to church yet. He also really
likes talking, which is interesting because everything he believes is
true and basically the same doctrine as ours. We will be working with

Last night we got two new investigators, and both were from members.
The members we ate with brought their Spanish professor. It was
adorable because they both had little babies. We taught a powerful
lesson about the Book of Mormon. Then we met with a woman who told us
the problems she had with her daughter. We were just letting her vent
her frustration. We didn't get to teach much but that's okay.

We have been well. I hope you are all good too.

It has been warm these past few days, and mostly dry. Then it stormed
last night. It was fun.

We have been doing lot's of service this past week. Edmonton hosted a
Canada wide gymnastics tournament. They enlisted the missionaries to
help. We went twice. We were security, checking everyone's
credentials, making sure no spectators snuck in, ect. We also put a
bunch of flower pots together and put them around. It was really cool
to see all the gymnastics. The competitor that won the gold for all
around was a member, and his dad was a volunteer. That was cool
service. Afterward they feed us and gave us t-shirts, so that was

Another service we did this week was for a big track meet. We helped
with concessions. We cooked burgers and wrapped them and helped
restock drinks and  all sorts of stuff like that. We felt like
restaurant employees, but they definitely needed it. The food was
completely gone. They were being faster than could be cooked,
processed, or delivered; one lady made at least three trips to the
store to buy more food.

For missionary work we have been a bit slower. We met with a less
active man, and that was a little miracle, as he has been very
difficult to meet with.

I felt a bit sick Friday, but I'm fine. It was probably just a 24 hour
bug. My companion has been suffering from back pain though. Luckily
there is a chiropractor that lets missionaries see him for free. That
has been helping him a lot lately.
