July 11, 2016

Sunday... you dont write to me on Sunday... you must not be feeling good... ;) hahaha. No it's all good. I understand that you got girls camp. You'll be going crazy with that and you won't remember to read my email until next week ;) hahaha maybe not. 

Sorry I haven't been writing about everything that has been happening in this ward it's just been some crazy weeks. I just thought it was going to calm down but it's just gotten a little crazier... but that's okay. So, I am the ward Lujan. in the City of Lujan with the Lujanos. jajaja. It's been way good here in this ward. I miss Krause and San Juan because I felt at home there but I'm starting to like it a lot here too. The members are really nice and way good. We just need to get them to work with us... jajja. Sometimes the hardest part. That's okay though because we'll get them working. Nothing a little sopaypilla cant do ;) jajaja. 

We have lots of investigators we are working with right now. Most of them are families together but not married with one of them that needs to divorce so that they can get married. So the only factor there is time. Most of them have testimonies of the church and love the church but they just can't progress until they divorce and get married which can take at least a month and a half... so we are still working with them and looking for new investigators. We have a couple that are  close to baptism!! We are hoping for a couple the 30th of this month and a couple the 5th of augost. so we are working there. We have a huge area but I like it. I don't really know like half of it yet because it's so big but that's okay. I am getting to know it well. I am learning it. I know how to get places but I don't know very well the streets. That's what is hard for me. But I'll get the reins on it soon enough!! We went to the mountains this week. a 45 minute bus ride to see snow and a lake. It was way chill up there. It was a very beautiful place. Nice chill ride up there :) 

We have had a couple crazy things happen in the last week.. a mini misionero went home leaving one companionship in a trio. But now for medical problems one is going home. So now it will be 2 there. It's been a rough week. We had a hospital run for this elder at 11 at night. We got back at 2. Then we had to inform President Goates on everything that happened. So it's been kind of crazy. Sad to see him have to go.. We are going to do a going away party thing for him tomorrow. Homemade pizzas I think. And my comp's grandpa died this week. and I think this week they are going to take off my big foots nail. They say I have a fungus and they need to destroy it with direct contact with the medicine and that for that they need to take it off so it's starting off pretty crazy today. But that's okay because I'm sure I'll be okay. 

I was able to give my comp a blessing and he seems to be doing better. So we'll get through this week. There could be worse right? I just hope they don't make me rest too many days... that would bug  me a lot... I don't like staying in the house all day... we'll see what happens. But this last week we had 8 investigators come to church!! That was awesome!! We were way happy to see them all there!! Hoping for a couple more the next week too!! Its gonna be a good week de obra! Hope you guys are going to have a great week and we'll see you all the next week!!! 

Con amor,

Elder Hakes
