May 26, 2014 Transfers...Elder Macias is outta here!

Yup, there were transfers this week and Elder Macias is outta here! He is off to Zona Mante in a little pueblito se llama Xico ( the name is longer than that, I just don't know how to spell it and everyone just calls it that) My new companion's name is.... Elder Osurio! yup, it's gonna be fun :)

This week went pretty well, we have been teaching Ricardo a lot and just trying to keep his faith strong so he can resist all kinds of temptation. We taught him the word of wisdom and the law of chastity this week (how fun is that right? ;) ) and after one of the lessons we gave him a blessing to resist temptation. He is really excited about the church, he just struggles with his addictions but he is working really hard to over come them, but.... he didn't come to church.  We ran into him on the street later and he told us he didn't come because he slept in because he was up until 4 in the morning helping a friend with something. But when we ran into him he told us he was actually going out to look for a place to listen to the word of God because it was the Sabbath day so I thought that was pretty good, unfortunately there weren't any meetings for our church at that time. 
With Virginia, well we haven't seen her all week and she wasn't at church, and she is actually moving out of the area soon so we won't get any farther with her, I hope she keeps trying to be a part of the church where she moves to and finds the missionaries there. She was really excited about it, hopefully we can talk to her before she leaves or something. 
We haven't been able to meet with the guy that the ward mission leader invited yet but we are still going to do that.

I was wondering when Ponderosa was going to happen, sounds like it was a lot of fun and you guys got to meet some new people (like the people cousins are dating)

Well that's all I've got for now, I have some pictures to send, I hope you enjoy them :) these first ones are from the zone breakfast :)

I love you all :)

-Elder Sampson
