umm. we had transfers today (4 week transfers) and i got transferred.
Im in Gomez Palacio. So I have now been in all three parts of the mission (Torreon, Durango, y Gomez).
I am in a trio right now, but one of the Sisters returns home in two weeks (the 6 week transfers) so we will see what happens with me and my other compañion in two weeks :)
well quickly form the week.....
we tried contacting EVERYONE, and had 167 contacts from the week (people that we go up to and talk to and invite them to hear about the gospel of Jesus Christ).
Arrived to our lesson with Hno. Antonio y Pamela, and Bishop was there visiting him with his first counselor (woohoo for ward support).
Hno. Antonio told us that we arent wasting our time teaching him. He said that he knows we arent there for chance or for whatever, but that we have a purpose and now he has more answers then before.

Hna. Maria Socorro telling us that she will just stop drinking coffee without a problem because she wants to be clean to have the gift of the Holy Ghost. she told us that she has to make sacrifices in order to be firm in her faith :) (she also said this about going to church and visiting her sick mother after the services)
Hno. Dante trying to make visits with us in the week, but the appts. we invited him to, nobody was there..and his saying "i wanted to be a missionary, and here i am." haha still happy and animated as ever :) (strongest convert ever). Oh, and also seeing him bless the Sacrament :)
