Mom & Everyone,
"It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself." - Ralf Waldo Emerson
On a random note, last Thursday was the first day of Spring. So the days have been pretty dang nice and actually kinda hot (probably because I lived 8 hrs from Antarctica for the last 3 months haha)
My comp was sick all week, sowe spent all morning in the Doctor while he got shots...not in his arm hahaha. So we didn't do a ton of walking after that. We are still looking for new investigators to teach, and trying to regain the trust of the members here in La Prensa. Elder Fereirra only got here 6 weeks before me and apparently the Elders and even Hermanas that were here before he got here were really bad with the members and just the work in general. The members have told us that no one here talked good about the Elders before. But things are really starting to change! We great quite a few references from members and almost every time they say, "I never would have given this to missionaries before. We honestly couldn't trust them." They didn't even want them in their houses to eat lunch!! It was bad, but getting a lot better each day!
