Week 88 - "Hello" May 7 - May 13 (Primavera)

So just a quick note from Jonah this week but we were able to spend a nice long hour on a video call with him for Mother's Day.  We had such a fun time visiting with him.  Arin and Kelsey were here to let him know that he is going to be an uncle in November!  He looks great and looks so happy.  He talked about his companion Elder Nunez and we were able to visit with him.  The funny thing was he did not want to talk about coming home or on what day he will be finished with his mission.  The funny thing was that he didn't want to hang up the call either.  Such a great missionary - We love him.

Hello!!! We went to lunch today and took forever...haha we always take a while at McDonalds just so we can savor it. Pretty sad huh? I used to hate McDonalds. Yeah, last week was nuts, but still it has been busy because of the interchanges and just getting out and proselyting every day. We were pretty wiped by Friday night, its always to have a time to relax a little more. Yeah I get pretty good sleep..on a normal day I get anywhere from 7 to 8 hours of sleep which is great. Occasionally it'll be like 6, but that's pretty rare, maybe once or twice a month. We try to not work in the room. But sometimes we have too haha. I'm doing great! Honestly, I'm probably less sick than at home haha, I've only had to stay in because of sickness like twice in my whole mission and one time it was on a Pday so it didn't even count. A lot of people get colds and stuff but I've only had a cold maybe once on the mission. And I only had the Nacho Libre squirts at the very start of my mission. We had a great week, on an interchange with Elder Rios, we found a really cool family that used to receive the missionaries about 4 or 5 years ago, but then their evangelist family members told them that they were liars and from the devil (not an uncommon thing to hear here haha), and so they stopped. But we surprised them the other day and their 21 year old son let us in. The mom was actually pretty upset that we were let in, but then we had a great small lesson with them and we are excited to come back this Tuesday. Also, Hoyjaní showed up again and is planning on coming to church Sunday with her daughter. She has a baptismal date for the 28th of this month.
