Hola hola!

Saturday night, I we got our calls to see if we were being changed. The AP said, "Elder queda [stay put]." So, I'm in Los Plátanos for another change! Elder Smith is still my companion too. I've completed my first change in the field! I've made a lot of progress in the past six weeks, I've learned to be more patient with myself, to always strive as hard as I can, and to always smile and be grateful for the blessings the Lord has given me here.
We have an investigator with a baptism on the 14th. He's 12 years old and his name is Byron (not Bryon). I'm excited for our investigators to watch General Conference. We contacted another investigator and taught him the first lesson. He is very tranquilo [laid back] but has a strong belief in God so we hope to help him grow his testimony of the Restored Gospel. He's actually coming to our Noche de Hogar [FHE] tonight!
I haven't received the photos and the package yet, so we'll see if it comes this week. I have my fingers crossed! Thank you for the video you sent me, Mom and Dad. It was nice to see you. I tried to make a video but it was too big. I'll try to have something ready by next week. I actually didn't take pictures this week so you'll just have to enjoy the ones that I tried to send last week haha. That was a good picture of Kurt by the way. Sundays haven't changed haha. I also received a letter from the Zappe's a few weeks ago but forgot to thank them! Thank you Zappe family! Also, thank you everyone who's thinking about me, praying for me, or at least checking the blog.
Spanish is fine, I feel like I made some big steps this past week. I'm much better with conversing with people and don't struggle too much. I still have such a far way to go though haha.
On the way to the internet café, we ran into a couple that stop to talk to us! They said the see Mormon missionaries a lot and have wanted to talk to them. They live near our apartment so we're going to pass by sometime this week. The Lord's hand is in the Work here! I'm so grateful to be here and that the Lord is using me to work miracles in other's lives and that He is constantly qualifying me for this calling. I went on divisions [splits] with the stake president last night and I learned a lot from him--I'm always learning.
Life is good here! I hope you are all well!
