proof that the chupacabra has migrated to san pedro

well like it said in the title changes were this week. sure enough i stayed here in San Pablo, but my comp elder altamirano got sent to another area. i was sad to see him go because we got along pretty well, but i guess it was time. my new comps name is elder matute, he is from honduras. since elder heywood i have had 2 comps from el salvador, 2 from nicaragua and now one from hoduras. hes cool, i can tell he is a missionary that will get out and get things done. i think ill be able to learn alot from him, because sometime i have good ideas, but i dont follow through, so this will be a good chance to learn something new that will help me be a more affective person.
we are coming up on our final week of the month. President says if we are working effectively we should never go more than a month without a baptism. and so far we dont have any, but the good news is that we have alot of people that are ready. we have 5 investigators that could possibly be baptized this saturday, i think it will just require alot of work and a lot of faith, but we are going to do it.
on friday the branch held a funeral service for a member that recently passed away. we went to the funeral to give support, and when we showed up one of the members asked if we could share a talk about the plan of salvation as part of the service. my comp was quick to volunteer me, by saying that i had more time in the area than him, so it would be better if i spoke. haha it wasnt a very good excuse, but i agreed. i had a few minutes to prepare, and i wrote a few things in my agenda, but when igot up to speak i forgot everything i was going to say. I basically just read the scripture out of alma 40 12 that talks about spirit paradise and bore my testimony, i dont know if i spoke that well , but hopefully something i said helped the family.

well the rainy season has kind of stopped for a while. since my new comp showed up it has been super hot here. but its nice to have a break from the rain. we still eat tons of rambotan every day, i think its the only serving of fruit i get every day, so i have to take advantage of it. if your wondering i havent gotten sick my whole mission, except a little cold in san pedro. Ive truly been blessed, because alot of missionaries have to work with sicknesses, but ive been doing well. although i if you want it never hurts to have a box of emergency. speaking of things you could send me, im out of razor heads. ive been using the same one for like a month and a half, now it basically just rubs my hair away, like shaving with sandpaper. i think if you sent me a box of 12 it would last till the end of my mish.
well it sounds like you guys are already at the river. its hard to believe that the last time we went i already had my call. times going by fast. thats cool about the room downstairs im excited to see pictures. and good choice on the colors, i approve.
well i think im gonna finish up there, ive been wanting to write some people from my other areas, so i think imma finish up early today. but i love you all. its good to hear that everyone is happy and healthy. enjoy whats left of your summer, and keep doo-won work. have a good week and send me some pictures. adios
Elder Jacobson
