How is it possible it's Monday again? | week 81

Me and Elder D. My companion loves to cook which is nice because Im not a fan of cooking!
Hey Guys!
I send my thoughts and prayers to everyone on Dads side of the family. I was really hoping to be able to have seen Grandpa Shirley one last time. I know that death is part of Gods plan. It is something that none of us will be able to avoid. I know that because of Christ there is life after death. I have always looked up to Grandpa Shirley and to listen to his stories. I will never forget that he gave me some of his cherished stamps that he collects. I know he is in a better place. I love you Grandpa.
Mom I loved all the pictures you guys sent. And Riley I love that sweet GoPro pic you're inspiring me haha. Im glad you guys were able to have some fun and get away.
Well I dont have a whole lot to report on this week. It was a bit of a struggle for from Thursday until Sunday. They celebrate "Semana santa" here and so most of the people are off of work and head to the beach. Its kind of like proseliting on Thanksgiving haha. But we were able to visit alot of the less actives and to work with some of the members. We found a great new investigator named E who is really receptive and has alot of promise. We are preparing this week for C's baptism. She is doing great. We hadnt seen her for a while because she left out of town. But she was in church on Sunday!
Lots of "Bolos" or drunks walking around this weekend. haha There are always a couple who love to talk to us and hug us. Not the most pleasant thing but always keeps us laughing haha

I was able to really cherish this week and study alot about the life of Christ. The Bishop asked us to speak again on Sunday. We can learn so much about Christs example to each and everyone of us. I love learning about him. His life changed the world and changes each and everyone of us. We are all endebted to him. Im going to look for that video that you mentioned mom on the Churches site sounds pretty good!
I would like to share my testimony of Christ. I know that he lives. I love the words in the new testament when Mary was standing near the empty tomb. "Why seek ye the living among the dead?" "He is not here, but is risen". What comfort our souls. I cannot really understand and I stand all amazed at what he did for me. It is such a priviledge I have to be able to be one of his reprasentatives here on earth. I love him and know that he will never abandon us. Never. He bled and pled to his Father utterly alone. "Father why have thou forsaken me?" He knows us and knows how to succor us perfectly. What a blessing! What a priviledge to know this!
Well we are heading into the last week of this change. It went by very very quickly. Im excited to start a new week and to keep improving. Remember to look for someone that you can serve and help this week!
