on Wednesday we had a world wide broadcast from the apostles. it was really inspired. we got to listen to Bednar and Oaks and others talk about mission work. they talked a lot about teaching with the spirit and obedience. it lasted the whole morning, then my comp and i had to go to culiacan. its a five hour bus ride. when we got there they had us and the other zone leaders that aren't from culiacan stay in a hotel! we had the meeting the next morning. they talked a lot about the same stuff as the broadcast just more specific to the mission. while i was there i got to see elder Holzer (my comp from the mtc) who i hadn't seen in a little more than a year. weve both lost a lot of weight haha we were looking at the pics from the mtc and we look a lot different. after we went to the offices and there was a packaged there waiting for me! it was funny cuz they had sent it to san jose the day i left to esquinapa. for some reason the zone leaders in san jose decided to rip it open because "it didn't have a name" so they sent it back in a old luggage bag haha.
after the bus ride back i opened my xmas presents haha! even though it wasn't xmas it was still fun to get stuff haha. you guys did a good job, it was just the stuff i wanted! also my comp is very grateful for his presents.
friday we had a pretty normal working day which was nice.
Saturday we had our zone meeting, were suppose to share what we learned the the meeting in culiacan with our zone. we decided to go to teacapan for the meeting so that after we could help the elders there out. teacapan is famous because its the most southern area in our mission. its the size of tanques haha. the meeting went well then we went to go contact and find people to teach.
sunday was pretty normal too. today we were pretty worn out so we just did the normal clean wash and write haha.
im going to start the book of mormon again this week. they told us in the meeting to read the bom 4 times in our mission. every time ive had a baptism its because they've read the bom and truly prayed about it. there's an amazing amout of information in it!
merry xmas! so when i opened it up i saw that some one had eaten some of the caramels that grandma and granpa gave me. i felt like the grinch stole my xmas and changed his mind and sent it to me in a old luggage bag hahah
im very happy
