Our branch had four companionships of Elders before the past transfers, but they sent two of them away this transfer so now we've only got three in our branch. So they had to rearrange all of our areas to make them larger, which essentially changed our entire area with the exception of one neighborhood. Our new area has even more hills than ours has right now, so I'm not really looking forward to that much walking-wise haha. We now have to change houses and we've been searching just about the entire week every day for a new apartment for us in the other area. It's been quite the amount of work and we've got a few different options, but we haven't found one that we really like that much so we're going to keep looking this week. There aren't house listings online down here in Mexico so the only way to find one is by foot. We bought a heater and we're still waiting to hear back from Sister Hernandez (the President's wife) to see how we're going to buy a microwave and other things for our new house. It's a huge pain in the butt but it's something we have to do. Since we're changing areas now too, our baptism Juan will be baptized by the other Elders as well. But fortunately there's an Hermana in the other area that we've heard wants to be baptized so hopefully that will pan out for us.
Whew that was a lot to write. We've been walking so much this week looking for houses, I don't think I've ever been this tired before throughout my entire mission. And taking buses isn't really that much better, especially because I have to duck my head the whole time to be able to fit inside it standing up haha.
Thanksgiving was good, I got to eat some pollo and frijoles like always haha. Not much different there. People down here celebrate it I guess but not like back in the US. We've been eating a lot lately at member's houses which has been nice because it saves us money and stuff.
Everything else has been going good for me, happy like always and just enjoying the work. I'm excited to be getting a new area and hope we'll find a lot of success there. Les amo mucho y oro por ustedes cada día. ¡Tengan una semana buena!
Gracias por todo,
