Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

The Zone in traditional clothes.
Gayky (pronounced Why-kee, means brother) Black
Us getting mad at Elder Ramirez because he was the only one who didn't dress up...
Us trading Rafael Alomoto a picture of Christ for his Virgen Mary pictures. He's opening it up like a birthday present =)
This was a good week here in San Roque. We were only there for 2 days, but we were able to do a lot. Right now we have person with baptismal date and his name is Aaron Cando. He's the son of a less active family that we have here. He's progressing well. He was forgetting to read, so I told him that if he read and then told us what he learned, that I would give him chocolate. I bought it today. Hopefully he remembers =).
As far as our other investigators they're doing well. In total we had 3 investigators that went to the General Conference: Marco Diaz, Tito Tituania, and a new investigator that's called Gladys. She's also the daughter of a less active sister in our ward. Her mom is the daughter of one of our families from Crecimiento Real. We went by their house for the first time this week and we found her at the door. She talked to us and said that she wanted to get back into church, so we invited her to conference. We were pleased to see her and her 11 year old daughter in one of the sessions.
So this conference I had to watch it in spanish.....I can understand, but it's just not the same =(. But I really like Pres Uchtdorf's talk. He pretty much machetied my ward lol. I feel like sharing it with everybody now =). Also, for the conference the zone dressed up in traditional clothes. Here's a couple pics. Enjoy =).
Let me explain something about the new house....So last week we didn't have water, about 4 days, so on tuesday we went to the new house to wash clothes and study. We got there and I tried to open the front gate and I didn't have the key to the lock. Then the sister of the lady that rented us the house (she has a house there and stays there on the weekends) came up to us and said that she needed to talk to us. A long story short she said that her sister didn't have the right to rent us the house, that she needed to have the permission of all the inheriters before doing anything. She told us that some of her brothers were against anybody living there. Turns out that that house is like their vacation home. When the family comes into town to have a family reunion they all stay there. So that's why they don't want anybody to live there at all. One of the brothers found out that we were going to live there and he told his sister to change the locks so we couldn't get in. So she did. She was really nice with us and actually still wants us to live there. She's just following orders...Luckily though she at least let us in to wash our clothes =). After the incident I called the secretaries of the mission to tell them what happened. Supposedly I'll be getting the answer today if we can still live there or not.....Hopefully =)
Other than that everything here in San Roque is going good. We're finding investigators and we'll be having a few baptisms in the coming change =). And finally I'll be getting my new companion this thursday. I'll be training a brand new missionary =). Finally!
