Crazy Week

well needless to say its been a crazy week. it started crazy and ended crazy, and it was pretty much crazy in between.
on tuesday we went to the temple. what a great experience. it seems like there was a ton of stuff i had forgotten. to be honest i think i forgot it all again since last week, ha but i remember that i felt the spirit and that it was just so peacefull and relaxing. i didnt want to leave, i dont think any one did, but in the end we had to go.
on tuesday night we planned the following day. but when i talked to the zone leaders they informed us that we would be having a conference with presidente the next day. so we went to that. it was so good. supposedly it was for all the people that are currently being trained, but im sure that i learned as much, if not more than anyone there. we talked about the doctine of Christ. Faith in Christ, repenting, being obedient to baptismal covenents, and the promptings of the spirit and enduring to the end. i felt like it was all targeted at me to make me finish strong.
on thursday i did divisions with one of the zoneleaders Elder Horne. it was good, we had some good lessons, and at the end he gave me good advice of things i could do to work more affectively . it helped alot. hes a good guy.
on friday we had the second half of the conference with president. once again i learned alot. he gave us alot of good examples of things we can start doing in our area and in the district. i felt way motivated to go do work.
on saturday we had a service project with the branch. we went into a huge tank of water that supplies water to the whole city to clean it out. all i can say is that i will never drink water from the tap again. while the water was draining we swept up, and there was like a foot of mud and sand, and worms and leafs, and all kinds of gross stuff. by the time we were done though it looked really clean. i feel better about the water. for now at least.
so in the end we didnt have a whole lot of time to work in our area. we didnt find a lot of new investigators or teach a ton of lessons, but we are making some progress. the branch is doing well. our attendance went up agian, and the new chappel will be done next week. so alot of good will happen.
well things ended with a bang when i got my plan de relevo. or releif plan. basically that is what they send to the old people who are on thier way out. how nuts for me. but i still have a lot of time left, and alot to do. changes are this week. we will see what happens. i hope they leave us here together so we can see some fruits of our labor. but we will see what happens. the lord knows best.
well thats about all the hightlights and im already out of time. i love you all. thanks for everyting and have a good week . talk to you in 8 days. (thats how they say seven days in spanish)
