Last Friday night, while Elder Berg and I were doing our planning for the next day, we received a call from the assistants, and I’ve been called to serve as Zone Leader in La Paz! The same zone as when I was in Feliciano (the other small branch). I was surprised because I was only in Galvez one transfer. I would suppose that here in La Paz will be my last area for the next 3 transfers (4 1/2 months).
I hope your week was splendid and you’re happy.
This week I don’t have too much to share.
But this week we found some new investigators, something we always need! We have been praying for men that can bear the Priesthood worthily, and what do you know, at the end of church while we are talking outside the door with the President of the Branch and his counselor, a man drives by in his truck and then stops. Comes out and introduces himself. He is a member from Santa Fe, that is working now in Galvez for a while. We don’t know much more than that but we got his information and we are going to visit him pronto! He seems sweet so we have the hope that he can make a great part of the branch here.
A funny cultural thing: in Galvez there is “La Llorona”. A person that walks around in the dark early mornings (3, 4 o’clock and such) dressed in black or white carrying chains and maybe other weapons and CRIES. Just makes this super loud crying, whimpering noise around the more exclusive parts of the town. At Mariel’s house (a faithful member) her daughter let us hear a recording of the cry that someone had made when she heard it in the dead of night. WHOOOOOOOO freaky. It’s the BIG talk in town.
Anyway, love you all, you look great in the family reunion pics!
The night before we went to meet the President and Sister Perez we performed service by digging a huge hole! Probably the best service I’ve ever done. It reminded me of my big brothers when they were kids and dug a huge hole for the fun of it. After the service we were treated to some hot chocolate and the daughter of the family played and sang North American music. We took a picture with the family It’s a pity we don’t have them in our branch here in Galvez!
