This week was another really good week. I have been loving life a whole lot!!In our branch there is a clan of Hernandez'. The big 3: Juan, Lorenzo, and Beatriz. These three plus 8 other siblings were all baptized in El Paso 8 years ago. These 3 moved down here and the rest stayed in El Paso. Their families make up probably 50% of the branch. Juan is our Branch Mission Leader. He's pretty inspiring but incredibly flaky. He and his wife have 4 daughters, the oldest being 17 and the youngest is 7. Lidia, his wife, makes the best food out of anyone in the branch, but she gets offended if we don't eat 2 plates so she's a reason I'm gaining weight. I love them a lot. Lorenzo is one of only 3 high priests in the Branch
Exchanges took place this week as well. I was hoping to go with Tom but still no :( He felt like he needed to go with Elder Gillette because he's been having some problems adapting to missionary life. So I went with Harris again. I love Harris a lot. I got to go to their area, so finally left spanish for a day. It was nice and relaxing. It's kind of weird in an English area. We talked to a few people and each time I was so pumped because of how legit the people seemed, but Harris thought they seemed way uninterested. We decided it's becaue even an uninterested white person is a lot more solid than an interested Mexican haha. Ilove mexicans. We spent the night walking around and playing duets on our harmonicas, real fun.
The Church is having a new Christmas initiative this year and it is SO SICK!! christmas.mormon.org. It wont be open till black , but go check it out. THat's not all though.
