Good afternoon!! It sounds a lot weirder in English. But yeah, how’s it going? This week was pretty good.
We started off Monday night right by finding two new investigators. They accepted everything that we taught surprisingly well. But yeah this week we had a lot of opportunities to teach people and to look for people to teach. I’ve kind of gone back to the basics and I’m studying the restoration again but this time with the focus of learning how to explain it more simply. Other than that this week was pretty normal. Looking for people to teach everyday stuff like that. Although yesterday was pretty crazy I guess.
So lately we've been receiving lots of references to this pueblo around 30 minutes away from Acambaro and they’ve just been stockpiling up so yesterday I figured that we would go check out what’s up with this place. After our lunchdinner we headed out in search of a bus that would take us over there. We found a bus and hopped on and before you knew it we were in the middle of nowhere. Getting off the bus all I could see was this tiny little town and a big Catholic church in the middle. Nothing else. Like 100 houses surrounding a Catholic church. Well yeah, that’s normal, so we get going with the search for the people. Turns out that all of them gave us incorrect information because none of the streets that they said they lived on existed. Well yeah, after an hour we figure we should probably get out of there. Something tells me that the middle of nowhere is not the best place to be at night time so we started heading towards the area where we hopped off the bus. We see this old lady and then we ask her how often the bus passes by. Every 30 minutes. But the one you guys came in on was the last bus of the day. No more are going to come. Well great. We’re around 6 or 7 miles away from Acambaro. How the heck am I supposed to get back? I immediately start calling the numbers of every member we have on our cell phone. No one answers. And those that do answer say that they are busy and sorry and all that. Looks like we're walking then. So yeah we walked back to Acambaro. An hour and a half or two hours of walking. We got back at around 7:30 and immediately started looking for people to teach again. Nobody. Exhausting day, but it was a pretty good one. You would think i would have been pretty angry and tired and grumpy like I usually would have gotten but nah, I just felt happy the whole day. The spirit carried me through everything and it seemed like a normal day. So yeah, that’s my experience of the week. Not bad I guess.
