August 12 2013


Hola Family!!

So, first things first. I can officially solve the Rubik´s cube! haha, okay, with that said, on to mission matters.
So we have bikes in this area, which is slightly annoying, but hey, what can you do? and least the exhaustion helps me sleep at night. I had my first leader conference this week, it went well, and I learned a lot of stuff to use AFTER my mission. Hey, I don´t know If you guys are doing family history, but it´s been following around lately, so I feel like I should tell you guys to do it!
This district has so much potential, seriously. I just hope I can be the type of leader that helps them reach it.... but we´re doing quite well. we´ve found 3 people to teach this week who have accepted a baptismal invitation, but not a specific date, So I´ll keep you all updated on that. oh, and before I forget to put this quote:

"Stop bothering Korean Jesus! He doesn´t have time for your problems! he´s busy with Korean things!!!"

Haha, that´s probably the funniest thing I´ve heard all week :p okay, well, if anything changes, I´ll let you all know, for now just kicking spiritual butt and taking phisical names to open some celestial doors! I´ll send pictures next time because I can´t here. LOVE YOU ALL! Don´t make horrible choices, I´ve seem a little too much of that lately...

Okay famiy, hold onto your seats, cause this week was insane.

First off, remember the Columbian companion I´ve been with all this time? well, his spirit was obviously one of the stronger ones out here, because he`s now a zone leader! and he only had 4 months in the mission. usually a WAY good missionary isn`t made a zone leader until at least a year in the mission, so that`s way tight.
In my news, after only a month and a half in my area (the least amount of time I`ve had in an area up to this point), they transferred me. to another state again. I`m now in Guanaxoato, which I`m not even sure I know how to spell correctly, and get this, I`m now a district leader. I know, I couldn`t believe it either. I feel like it`s gonna be super difficult, because when I got here, my companion was telling me all of the district info, and turns out 4 missionaries have been taken from the district for problems they`ve had with members and each other, and they haven`t been replaced! so now, my Comp and I are working alone, but in 3 different wards and areas. And It`s my first district as leader, so obiously I want to make a good impression. but it`s all good folks, because if God put me here in the midst of all these problems I didn`t start, that means my purpose here is to finish them. so those are the updates for right now, I`m now in charge of teaching missionaries how to be better when I haven`t even taught myself yet. we`ll see how it goes :p. but for now this is Elder Sheppard, signing off.
