This week was pretty good. We've just been flying around doing more zone leader stuff and trying to do the work at the same time. We did a lot of service this week while trying to work with Luis at the same time. We found out last Sunday that a family from our ward was moving to another house and they announced that in Priesthood. Luis was the first guy to raise his hand and say he was gonna be there helping out haha that was really cool for Elder Nelson and I to see. So we went there on Friday with Luis and he helped us move them out. He is a way nice guy who just does everything he can to serve others. We also helped the bishop do a foundation to start laying a cement floor and that was an interesting experience too.
Luis is the coolest guy. We have been working a lot with him on completely stopping his smoking and drinking problems that he has. They are really even problems anymore and he hardly ever does it and its been cool to see his progress. Especially in the situation that he lives in. His is 21 and is the youngest of 8. He has 2 older brothers who still live with him and his parents and they aren't the best example. His brothers and dad spend about $1000 pesos a month on cigarettes and they all like to get drunk. His dad literally lives drunk and its crazy. He almost fell on me one time because he was so drunk. He is a funny guy though because every time we go over he tries to talk to us in English. He is also a really nice guy because he always is inviting us over to eat, and he also gave me a watch on my birthday without even knowing it was my birthday haha. His mom also has 2 really bad legs and cant really do anything and Luis is the only one that helps. So he lives in a really hard situation. Anyways Luis told us he wants to get baptized as soon as possible and start his progress in the church. He even talks with us about a mission sometimes which is really cool. He told us some of the things he would do if he went on a mission. One thing I will never forget his he was talking with us about bringing people to church. Sometimes when we go over to his house t work, he would go find a big rock that would go through the window. Then he looked at us and said "but you guys know I'd bless the rock first, so then I know it would do its job so that's fine." Elder Nelson and I died laughing haha he is a really funny guy as well. He has his baptismal date for this , so we are praying all can work out this time. Luis is really someone who has made me more humble and helped me become a better person and missionary.morning when he doesn't answer our calls, and he is sleeping and doesn't wake up when we knock, then his mom has to wake him up and its a whole process. He said if that happened to him, he would just go in the street and find some little rocks he could throw at the window to try and wake the person up. Then he said if that didn'
