The biggest news of this week is that there are transfers! I will be getting a new missionary to train and will be staying in the same area, and Elder Gonzalez will be going to Libertad, where I was at about a year ago. It ought to be a really fun second to last transfer to come, though I don't know yet if my new missionary will be a yankee or a latino. I'll be finding that ought on Tuesday.
Other than that, this week we were all over the place trying to visit people and walking a lot. There was one day that we were going to go out with a member to visit people too and so with that, as well as the hard rain that was happening we had to reorganize our day about 3 times (and then in the end the member was getting sick so they couldn't even go out with us to visit).
One really cool thing however is that on Sunday, Jonathan Vargas (one of the family of siblings that is all living together) made it to church for the second Sunday in a row. It was really awesome to see him there and see that the ward is really trying to help him too now. We were then able to visit with another member that hasn't been in a while on Sunday afternoon and it was really cool to see her meet up again with a member that we brought with us that was baptized on the same day as her. It was a pretty cool get together and it was a really awesome experience to seem them meeting each other again as old friends that hadn't had contact in over a year.
Oh, I also got to help someone change a flat tire this week on their car while my companion talked with her about the gospel. It was a pretty cool way to contact someone, but as soon as it was changed and the flat was put in her trunk, she thanked us, got in, and drove off. I got a laught out of it.
Other than that though, there hasn't been a whole lot new for this last week in our area and so I hope that you all have a great week!
2128 - We came across a Google Maps car driving down the street this week. It was pretty awesome.
2130 - A train station in our area (we use lots of trains).
2132 - Train station (again).
2157 - One day when it rained, there was a street that flooded out particularly bad - at least 6 inches deep.
2163 - Some cool graffiti that we found in our area.
2167 - There was one truck that was carrying lots of Coca-Cola bottles that fell through a part of the street in our area. They had to unload it, get it out, then load it back up again.
2168 - Following the sighting of the truck that fell through the street, we saw lots of coca-cola bottles stacked up all over the place (more than what could have come from unloading said truck. It was a weird glitch in the Matrix.
2170 - We got our hands on a ping-pong net and paddles, so we set it up on a table we have that is about 4 feet by 2 feet, a fraction of the size of a real ping-pong table. Nonetheless, we had a really fun time playing at night when we finished our day and before going to bed.
292 - A really polluted river that runs through the limits of our area. We grabbed a picture while we were close.
301 - Someone was bored with just a painted on house number, so they got creative and drew a face in it too.
