Ok, so this week was super hard at first, like tons of contacting and tons of people just flat out rejecting us. It sucked and I was getting pretty down. I don't know why, but this area is a little bit harder. People are like not super open to the gospel, but that's no excuse. Anyways we were looking for a guy who we contacted and he ended up lying to us and saying he lived in this one house and he doesn't, so I just decided to start knocking on other doors trying to find people. A lady opened it up and let us in! Hahaha!! It was sick. She has a huge family and she is super awesome and open. We taught her and her 3 daughters and we are going to go with them again this Wednesday. its gonna be sick.
Then Sunday came around (birthdays suck here) and I just went to church that was probably the best part of my birthday...Hahaha!! Oh ya, the bishop gave me a book of the teachings of Joseph Fielding Smith, so that was my birthday present! Elder W. also wrote me a super cool letter honestly he's got to be one of my best friends. His note made me cry and I realized that that was probably the best gift anyone could ever give me. My birthday was good. We also ate some pozole with a hermana who knows I how much I love pozole and she bought me a cake. I will send you a pic.
I got to go, I'm sorry. Me and W. are going home the same day. He is going back to California and coming back to BYU in the summer. But I already told him that Me, Hunter and maybe Mark and John are gonna go and stay with him in Cali for a couple of days and go to the beach with him. He doesn't have tons of friends that are in California right now and everyone he knows is in Utah.
I got to go, I am sorry. I hope I get my package this Wednesday.
Love you, bye!
