this last week (received 6/19/17)

So the week before got kinda crazy I didn't have much time to write but pretty much the biggest point of last week was the Mission President of Reynosa came to the office with his assistentes and they were constantly talking to us as we went about our work and then after a rather too lengthy of a conversation we had to leave, I'm pretty sure they thought we were the assistants to Pres. Torres but no that's the other Elder Harker. 
This week
Mon-went to academy found some cool stuff, my lil sis is now 17💀I'm old...
Tues- Went to transfers(we both stayed) to give some stuff to other missionaries and then went out to teach, we had our first English class, it went well
Wed-had district meeting, all appts fell through
Thurs-Sis Horgesheimer was sick so we had to help them out with car checks, we taught a bunch today and while on the way to an apptment we found a hyper friendly huskydog. it found some tall grass and got lost from us playin in the grass.
FRi- Elder Fielden Birthday, all apts fell through and at the end of the day we knocked a door, it opened and the families dog ran out and started fighting a dog that had been following us. the whole family ran out and separated the two, the families dog lost and had some good bite marks in its ear but it was fine, we taught the family the restoration!
Sat-apparently found out that the first presidency sent a letter to the members of Reynosa to help them stay strong during all that's going on over there, the letter focused on keeping the commandments especially the word of wisdom and Law of chastity
Sun- The Gallegos family we have been teaching all came to church and accepted a baptismal date for July 15!

 I don't have much time right now but hope y'all have a great week!
