My week was pretty great as Elder Brewer and I are really getting along and learning from each other. I love having a newer comp because he helps me remember the fundamentals which are really the most important. It's hard just speaking in Spanish with him but we are working on it. It's also hard to get him in on the lessons because he doesn't talk much. He's trying though and I try to give him a window, but it usually results in a silence ha.
We are trying to talk with more people on the street too and we have the goal to talk to 35 a week when we should be doing 70 for our mission goal. It's hard because we are always busy, but we are improving and we found an awesome family from talking to a mom who was going to pick up her kids from school. It was a miracle to find her house too because she gave us what is commonly called a "Yucateco address" which is when they tell you where they live saying that you have to turn a million times looking for a certain coconut tree. Ha we found it in the night though so I was pretty happy.
This week I really enjoyed seeing Fernanda really progress. We have taught her for a while and in a week she has completely stopped smoking. I couldn't believe how good she is doing reading and everything. She going to be baptized on Tuesday!

SHOUT OUTS for everyone! Thank you so much for reading my blog!

I have loved sharing the Sacramental prayers this week Moroni 4 and 5.
FUN FACT: The milk here comes in a milk carton like the little personal ones we have in the U.S. and you can keep it out of the fridge for months. Its also only 50 percent real milk ha. YUM! It took me a while to get used to it.

Have a good week! THE CHURCH IS TRUE.
