Things are going great here in Hammond. This past week has had a lot of complication but it has been really good!
So all the excitement happened this weekend. First thing is that on Friday and Saturday we went on exchanges with the other Elders in our district. I went with Elder Jensen to Albany and Elder Street came with Elder Israelsen to Hammond. It was a really good time. We spent most of the time tracting in Albany because the other elders are trying to get their teaching pool up again. I got to meet come cool people out tracting and I got to learn from Elder Jensen. He is a great teacher and is so good at talking to others. One person that we met was a young man named Cameron. He is 14 and misses going to church with his mom. He told us that he is the only of the 12 kids in that family that has not been to jail. He told us that he wants to be the one that doesn't ever go and that he prays multiple times a day. It was really cool to see that determination in him.
Another cool thing that happened was that I got to go to Mississippi!!! Most Spanish missionaries in this mission don't get to say that. We went to get our car checked by an Elder serving in McComb. He is a Toyota certified technician and we were sent there to see if he could fix the problem with our AC fan. So that was fun, but he wasn't able to fix it because he didn't have the right parts or tools so it ended up being a waste of miles.
The last thing that was cool was that last night we went out with Brother Abel to give a blessing to a member from our ward that is having surgery this week. We had a good time getting to know Brother Bounds better and after we gave him the blessing we went with Brother Abel to his house and he taught us how to make Beignets. They are kind of like a fry-bread or fried donuts. It was really good!!
Well I hope all y'all have a great week! Remember that the Lord loves you and wants you to turn to him in everything!! Love y'all!!
