Hola, familia,
This week has been a bit uneventful. We've been trying to spread out a bit from our usual proselyting locations by going to visit some of our potentials in other areas that we cover, and, of course, trying to talk to everyone along the way. However, most of the people either aren't home or aren't interested. Of those whom we manage to get return appointments with, they usually haven't been there when we return. But, overall, we're doing alright. We're doing our best to find the elect and also working with those we have to help them toward baptism. I think we might be close with a few people, but they don't like accepting baptismal dates for some reason.

Oh, I had my first and second door slammed in my face this week; on the same day actually. Even though it's a tad discouraging, I laughed it off, and kept going. Over all, My spirits this week have been good.
Language Lesson -- Accents and gender are important
Two words can be spelled the same (one with an accent mark, one without) and have different meanings.
Two words can be spelled the same but have different genders (los, masculine; las, feminine) and have different meanings.
La Papa -- potato
El Papá -- papa, daddy
El Papa -- The Pope
Fun Fact -- Did you know that the word "taco" in Japanese means "octupus"?
That pretty much is it for this week. I'll talk to you next time.
Con amor,
-Elder Jordon Hill-
