This week has been pretty good. Riding in the back of a super full pick-up the other day I was sitting closest to the cab, just chilling. All of a sudden I spot something in the corner of my eye. Coming out of the crack between the cab and the bed, a rather large, bright green spider comes on out. Being that the truck was completely full, I had no option but to maintain my calm and hope the sucker didn´t try anything. Fortunately he was just along to chill, but holy cow I thought I was donezo.
Our district won the most successful district in the zone, so the zone leaders bought us all cake, it was pretty sweet. This week we have just been knocking a ton of doors, because we have pretty much nobody to teach now. We found like 20 people this week that are totally willing to listen to us. Not as many as I have gotten used to, but for where we are a great achievement. Our goal is to baptize somewhere around 12 of them, and if everything goes well it will be at the end of this month. We shall see.
We are going to have a new mission president starting from the 27th of this month. It is going to be weird, as I have grown to love this one very much and learned many, many things from him. More than anything I have learned from him and his wife the importance of not only being obedient, but being exactly obedient. Also, the importance and the results of, diligence. There is urgency in everything! ! I wouldn´t want to take the shoes of President Brough here, it would be seriously difficult. Our new mission president is President Markham. He is from California. One of the elders that came in with me had him as a stake president.
Adiós! Elder Rice
