Week 85 in Mexico, Week 8 in Sahuayo

Hey!! Yep, so far things are going good this week, 

Last week I told you I was in Guadalajara to get my new companion.  His name is Elder Arroyo.  He is from here in Mexico.  A town called Aguascalientes, like 2 hours from Guadalajara.  There was no missionaries that came from the US.  I was in Guadalajara for all of Monday and most of Tuesday.  Monday night all of the missionaries (the trainers and the trainees) stayed in the mission home.  They ordered 2 huge pizzas from Pizza Hut.  There was like 40 pieces of pizza.  We stayed up and played Egyptian Rats Crew.  It was a lot of fun.  We had meetings most of Tuesday.  We didn't get assigned our companions until about 2:00 pm.  I was sitting by my companion during the meetings, so we got a piece of candy.  Me and my companion get along really well.  He is very prepared.  He is 18 years old, and a good missionary.   Here is a picture of my companion and I the first day, right after the meeting when they assigned us as companions.

So we got here Tuesday in the night, and we have been working here.  Its a little different because I don´t know the area as well as I thought I did, but we are getting the hang of it.  I don't know if I have told you about the family here that owns a bread shop.  They give us all the free bread we want.  It is sweet bread, and it is really good.  They fed us dinner on Tuesday.  They are a great family.  

One day when we were out working, and had to take a bus.  The traffic was so bad it took us an hour and a half to get there, when it should have taken a half hour.  Satan was hard at work.  There is this older lady that we run into every now and then.  The first time we saw her she said "I can tell you are not from around here.  It is very dangerous, you should not be out past 6:00 pm."  Then the other day when we saw her again she said "Where are you going so handsome?" She is 50 or 60 years old.   

Sunday we didn't have as many investigators come to church as we would have liked to.  We did have some come, so that was really good.    

Here are some pictures that my companion took during the week.  The first was us crossing a stream to get to an appointment, the other is from the other day when we got back from church.
