Lucky 100

Hello Everyone...

This week has been pretty dang crazy (as it always is on the first week of the transfer)...Just so you guys know also...Elder Schappi had special transfers and I recieved Elder Banda this past week also haha I know crazy transfers...

First I will explain a little about my new area...for a couple of days I really thought that they had sent me back to the States...I am in a wealthier part of Hermosillo...Everyone has nice houses and cars and they even have door bells (something I havent seen for a while) There are many advantages and disadvantages to this area...The Ward is great...Its really weird to be in a ward again after being in branches for almost a year...There are a few American families living here which is also kind of fun...A Sister from the ward is letting us use one of her rental houses which is really nice...it has water heater, washer, dryer, more than enough bathrooms and even walk in closets haha...we feel pretty dang spoiled... 

We arrived to an area that doesnt have very much work and so we have been trying to contact a lot of people we were knocking on lots of doors to begin the week and more recently we have put into practice a method to contact the Busses....We have to travel on public busses at least 2 times a day...and so what we have started to do is when we get on the bus...one companion goes to the back and the other stays in front and screams lout for all to hear a little about our message and who we are...then we go one by one to every person on the bus and ask if they want a visit...It is very interesting...It really gets the adrenaline pumping haha...We have been able to contact quite a few people in this way for the past couple of days....

Yesterday after the church services we were counting up our Contacts for the week and the goal for the mission is 100 and we counted 98 so on the way to the Lunch we were on the hunt for the 2 other people...in those 98 contacts we had made there werent a lot of people that wanted to hear our message or even desired to talk to us...But we kept going we contacted a lady on the street that didnt want anything...and almost 5 minutes before we got to lunch we passed by a gas station and a guy jumped out of his car and came closer quite rapidly...His name is Arturo and he was telling us about all of his religious experience and of his desire to learn more about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon...It was crazy...number 100 (the mission goal) Finally we found someone who had lots of interest....He told us where he lived (which is actually in almost the most wealthy neighborhood here) and we put an appointment...Its crazy how God works...from this experience I saw that God is preparing people in every neighborhood in every city...it doesnt matter what their situation is...Rich or Poor....

We are excited to start to teach him and all of his family...

Our Zone also had the opportunity to go to the temple this past week...What a great experience...I feel so lucky to be in Hermosillo because all of the missionaries in Hermosillo get to go to the temple once every transfer...We are pretty spoiled...

Thanks for everything 
I love you guys
