I'm doing really good! It's been a crazy week. Cleveland is one of my tougher areas but we are working our hardest and I'm sure that we will have some success. It may just take time. Spanish is good even though we don't talk to as many Spanish people. Investigators are good we are just trying to find a lot of new people.
definitely isn't easy. It takes a while to get used to it and a lot of
people struggle for the first bit. A lot of times it isn't what you
expect. I've had a really good mission and made a lot of really good
friends out here. Honestly it might be hard to leave but I've still got a
Wow that's crazy how cold it is getting in
Utah. In Cleveland it hasn't changed a whole lot. Everyone is
complaining how cold it is but they are still walking around in shorts
and a t shirt. It is getting a little colder though. It got down to
about 50 degrees one night and when we go out walking in the mornings it
is a little colder than usual. I do miss the snow but I guess I'm happy
I don't have to drive in it. I don't think that it will snow this year
and if it does it probably won't stick. I remember it got really cold
last year though and you feel it more just because of how humid it gets.
I think that I'll be ready for it this year just because now I know
what to expect.
During Halloween we had to be inside at
7pm. A senior couple invited us over and we ate hamburgers. Man it was
good. I haven't had a home cooked hamburger in a long time. I have
hamburgers just fast food ones and that is pretty rare. Then we came
back and were just chilling in the apartment. Then we got a call from
some other missionaries I know one of them being my old companion Elder
Long. He's doing really well. He's just a little shocked that he only
has two months left.
Yeah I'm excited for Thanksgiving
too. Last year we got invited to two thanksgiving dinners and I think
that was the most food I'd eaten in a long time. It's sad but I can't
eat as much anymore. It all started when I got to Cleveland.
now we are focusing a lot on finding new people..The branch is doing
really well. They are all really close. We've become close to a couple
of families. A couple of them are the Vega Family, La Familia Torres, La
Familia Avellaneda, La Familia Medrano, and La Familia Resendez. It's
really funny because the Resendez family is this really big family in
the mission and there has been at least one Resendez in all of my wards.
Here it's the older brother but my first Obispo was a Resendez and the
lady who sent you the picture is their sister and also in the picture is
Nothing really does matter except what
Christ did. I really like a talk that someone gave about grace and how
we are changed by it. A lot of times we get distracted by all of the
things around us that don't matter. It's all about the new styles or
money or how many friends you have. In the end all of that fades away
and you are left with yourself and how close you were with your Savior.
