February 9, 2015- in Oaxaca with Elder Alvarez

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a good week this last week! Me and elder Alvarez pretty much just spent the whole week walking around lost haha. The area here is huge! Like twice the size of bosque -huge. Just go on google maps and type in Rancho Aguyao and Zaachila and our area
is pretty much everything in between. we spend a LOT of money on taking buses and moto-taxis around and even more time walking(especially when we get lost haha) the few members we have in our area are really great and they’ve been helping us out a lot, find places and get to know people. It’s kind of weird being back in the city, I’ve sort of forgotten how it feels. It’s almost a completely different mission here and the people and members are way different too. We have a good sized ward of about 120 active members (about 30 live in our area) and we are 6 missionaries in total. the hardest thing about being here in the city after spending most of my mission in the itsmo and coast (and most of my life in Arizona) is how dang cold it is here haha. The nights aren’t bad, I sleep fine, but in the mornings when we’re studying it gets super cold, especially in our house. It definitely makes showering  with cold water a lot more interesting. The good news is we had 4 investigadores (our only 4) in church yesterday so we are gonna be able to have some baptisms this change. It’s a great area, I only wish I had a little more time than just a couple of weeks to really work. But ya the computer I’m on is horrible right now, I think were gonna try to find some different ones later to finish writing. Love you guys!
