Hola Familia
This week has been pretty good.
We have been trying to help a couple of couples that are having problems. They are investigators and are starting to teach them so we made some goals and are trying to help them, but it really opens my eyes and helps me see what I can do in the future to stay away from things and how to resolve them.
This week there have been a lot of tempting opportunities, where we get to the house of the investigator and they are watching movies that have come out while i have been on the mission and they are watching them, sometimes in english with spanish subtitles. They invite is to watch the movie with them and even invite us to dinner, but we have been strong and haven´t given in, especially because my companion is a fanatic with movies before the mission he would watch 3 maybe 4 movies a day. I have no idea how he can spend so much time watching movies.
Last week we were walking with the branch president to the charca and these teenage girls wanted to walk with us, because it can be dangerous because people have been attacked especially two teenage girls it would be dangerous. So they walked with us and found out that one is a friend of a member and has gone to church a couple of times, but that was a really long time ago, we went to their house and shared a message and they seem alright interested in the message and at the end of the lesson they gave us a plate of dinner yuka with a ham in sauce stuff. It was so cool to see the way that they accepted us right in and acted as if we were old friends offering us dinner and to stay and talk and play dominos with them, the people here are very loving and giving people.
During an exchange in Bella Vista we went and tried to find some investigators that just moved from our area to Bella Vista. They have been trying to get us their address so that we can give it to the missionaries in Bella Vista and all we had was the street name and the neighborhood, so we went on the hunt. I could recognize his truck so we went walking. We found the house in a short time and their daughter saw us coming and yelled they found us! They were really happy that we found them. We shared a short message and I introduced Elder Carrasco he and his companion will continue to teach them which was a really good hand off from one set of missionaries to the other. They are a great family.
This week is going to go really fast. We have activities planned this week. We have a branch christmas dinner tomorrow and then on friday we have a conference with all the missionaries in the City Santiago and then Saturday we have a Flash mob that we are going to do, so that is going to be way cool!
Well I hope that you all have a great week this week I love you all so much! Keep working hard in school!
Con Amor
Elder Cannon
