From Trio to Duo

So the trio is now down to two. Elder Barrowes had some things he had to take of back home so now it is just me and Elder Mcdonald! So this is the 3rd white wash I have been in my mission! (that's when both of the missionaries are replaced in an area and two new missionaries come in) Elder Mcdonald and I will be getting lost all over again, but it's not the first time and it certainly will not be the last. 

We are in the ward of Paso Del Rey. The regular attendance on Sundays is about 40 people. The area is a lot more rural than my last one. I am back to dirt streets. We are very happy to be here to help this ward grow. There is a lot of potential in this area. Also Elder Mcdonald and I are the only Americans in the entire zone! He is currently in the mission offices today for a meeting so I am on divisions with Elder Meneses who is from Brazil! It was a little crazy that we got called to zone of Moreno because President hardly ever calls Americans to this zone. But I know we are here for something.

These next few weeks are going to be a lot of work. Just walking and finding new people to teach. I am so tired. There's a reason it's called missionary WORK not missionary PLEASURE. But it is the most rewarding work you can do.
