So I'm in Puerto Peñasco now. It's a cool little resort town on the tip of the sea of Cortez. The streets are pure sand.... I'm mean there are a couple of paved roads, but pretty much all of my area is sand. Also, we have bikes here in Peñasco so it's really hard biking around in the sand. But, this area has a lot of potencial. We are opening the area so we spent the week getting to know the area and the members. My companion is Elder Rosales. He's from Peru, he has 6 months in the mission, and he's 19. He is very likely the smallest Elder in the mission. But he's a very hard worker and we've had a lot of success together and we're going to continue having success.
I learned a good lesson this week. We had a visit from a 70 Elder Pieper. He helped us with our teaching methods a little and I realized that I had gotten into a few bad habits in my teaching. We had a lesson with a woman named Dulce and during the lesson I really focused on teaching according to the needs of her and more than anything having a real love for her. We had a great lesson that ended with her in tears.
I love having this opportunity to be a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. There truly is power in our calling. I love you all!!!
