This week was so much fun and difficult at the same time. What i
mentioned last time is that i got a new companion but didnt know much 
about him. His name is elder butler he is from gilbert arizona the new 
temple that got dedicated is where he lives his brother and sister were in 
the cultural celebration. He is really chill and he says i am just so excited 
and happy all infact he calls me buddy the elf haha. Anyway he is super 
cool and we get along great and our conversations about videogames, 
boarding, and sports go on forever its awesome. One really big thing i like 
about him is he wants to be exactly obedient which makes me really happy 
and i can really see the blessings. Anyway the other two elders that we got 
in our penchant are interesting elder sherman is super funny and has taught 
me a few cords on the guitar but i am preety sure he as a little bit of anger 
issues but he is preety cool other than that. his companion elder gavillan is 
cool he was a wrestler in college for a year before the mission but he is 
really selfish and loves to voice his opinions. It is kind of hard though 
because we have only as enough stuff for two elders so we are still waiting 
for money from the mission home to buy stuff like closets and chairs and 
tables but dont worry we do have 4 beds so thats good. It is really fun in the 
penchant though with this many gringos together things get fun. Anyway it 
was really hard this week trying to basically teach 3 new people about two 
different areas while they are trying to teach me spanish but we are figuring 
it out. I am super sad becuase i have lost like half of the investigators we 
had to the other elders yeah we still get to see them at church but it is just 
not the same. But the investigators we do have are Javiera and Miguel we 
set a fecha for them on may 3 and they have been taking lessons for a 
while but there are some random important things that they dont know like 
we were talking about the spirit and they had never heard of that so we are 
just going to start of a new leaf with them and reteach it all. Then we have 
Gerrardo he is super good he has not missed  a sunday for the last 5 
weeks and we have taught him everything but just wont set a date cause he 
is scared he is going to go back to his old ways but we think we can get 
one this week. Then we have leslie she is so interesting she has read the 
whole book of mormon started doctrina y convenios and knows like 
everything about the church but just wont attend church but we finnaly got 
her to come this sunday and we are going to put a fecha for 3 weeks from 
now and hopefully she will do it. Then we have been meeting with tons of 
the members so elder butler can meet them all wich really helps me know 
the area more too. It is really great though our last mamita bailed on us 
when we got 4 elders because she just doesnot have time to make that 
much food so we asked like all of the members and met this inactive lady 
who has been through the temple and makes the best food and as agreed 
to be our mamita i am so excited about that because to be honest the last 
one gave us like no food. Anyway this was such a fun week and am so 
excited to really go to work this coming week now that both groups of 
elders have the areas down thank you for all the emails and pictures i love 
you all so much.

con mucho amor 
elder adams
