well crazy week (recveived 2/21/17)

well this week was crazy, so went on an exchange with Elder Canfield, realized my bike light was lost, haven't found it, then our last appointment we got attacked by a gross smelly chihuahua and he tried to take my ankle out. I shook him off and he 'bout got us again. never saw Elder Canfield run so fast, but that dog literally broke down a screen door to get to us. 
The next day, we were walking home when a giant dog comes running out of nowhere straight for us, so I got ready to fight like heck and stood there waiting for it and it 'bout hit me, I backed off whipped out my knife just in case he came at us again but he didn't. 

Had a few missionary meetings. hardly no meal appointments but an investigator of ours passed her baptismal interview! Jocelyn(9) wasn't able to be baptized but the branch pres got tired of waiting for her dad to shape up so he gave us the go ahead! so she'll be baptized the 4th of march

 cooking some Carne asada on mesquite
Then right after a carne asada meal(tacos but with steak, chicken, sausage and chile on tortillas- Taco bell just cant compete with it)  appointment with her family it hit... thunder, lightning and buckets of rain... we were told to go home by Pres. so we got our bikes loaded 'em into Bro Antonio's truck and he took us home, almost got hit by a few cars. it was crazy we were soaked, and so was the camera.. still functions but the screen won't show anything so you don't know what your taking a picture of. It was a wall of water that hit the south, San Antonio has some crazier weather but it was sketchy. My bike survived but I have to go through and fix some things nothing too much. we all busted through the apt. door just soaked, one elder lost his tag, one lost his tie, it was hilarious... and then we couldn't use the dryer so ya it was crazy!  

posted by the MP on the FB page

The Mission President, President Torres, posted pictures of the missionaries in the Texas McAllen Mission on FaceBook.  
The MP's wife, Sister Torres, took a three week tour of the mission.  She stopped at the home of each of the missionaries, added pictures of the Savior, the First Presidency, and the San Antonio Temple in the living rooms and a picture of Christ in each bedroom.  Each of the apartments was then re-dedicated.

hello (received 2/6/17)

so we have transfers today but no one has been notified of anything as of yet. so far folks as of late some have been wondering about the lack of info I give in my emails. and I have 2 explanations...
1) don't have it, we have been tracting all day everyday and have found no investigators who want us to return for a 2nd visit and the investigators we do have don't progress so we have to end teaching them. and to be frank there isn't much to say about tracting...
2) I have little time to email the mass email(its the lowest priority (President, family/friends, mass.)

so here's some other news, President allowed my Aunt and Uncle to come down from San Antone on Saturday

so this week has been pretty much the same, a lot of... no investigators. we have Jose who accepted a pamphlet and we are going by today at 6, other than that we been prepping the area for the change to the sisters. like pretty much... ya I have no ​idea what to say cause quite frankly not much been going on at all. Casey and Camille came down and bought us and lunch and got a new bike tube for me. but you kinda heard about that, haven't gotten calls about transfers yet... so ya... here are some pics
