This last week was a pretty long week but very rewarding. We had some fun doing divisions with the getting over some good trials, going on divisions with the assistants, and watering down a policeman.
Elder Zenteno is just a really awesome guy and is always there for me when I need help. We understand what is important but enjoy our time while doing the work of the Lord. When I get down or when I have had trials these past few weeks he has been there for me to support me in any way he can. Well this week was my turn to try and help him out. He has been having a few problems back at home and has been really discouraged and such. We had quite a few good talks and laughs together, and continued to work super hard. He is such an awesome guy and I really appreciate all of the things that he has taught me... especially how to love the people.
We went on divisions with the assistants. I traveled to the other side of Guadalajara while my companion stayed in our area to work. It was pretty good, I learned a lot of stuff... stuff I liked about the lessons, stuff that I didn't like about the teaching, and we made some plans on how I can become better as a missionary and a leader. One thing that I learned from Elder Wilhelm is his constant desire to become better. He honestly speaks Spanish so well and you can tell he works on it every day so that he can help the people better understand our message. I'll be honest... I've been super lazy with my Spanish. I just kind of got to my comfort zone. I understand everything that everyone tells me, and I can communicate my message with the people easily, but I haven't really been improving in my communication skills. I told Elder Wilhelm straight up that that's what I wanted to learn... how to connect with the people better... he than helped me make a language study plan so that I can use my time wisely to improve in my language... pretty much to stop being lazy with my Spanish. The divisions were really good.
Also, we baptized a policeman or I guess I should say a policewoman this week. She's awesome. Her name is Silvia and was super ready to be baptized and is definitely a member that will edify the kingdom. I love missionary work.
