This has been another exciting week in the best mission of all time, Aguascalientes! Now that all this Halloween and Dia de los Muertos business is over, it's time to bust out the Christmas decorations. We've got Santa wonderland here and there's an exciting shindig here in Pabellon too. According to me it's like Alpine days, but in Pabellon. Pabellon Days. Yesterday there was a parade in front of our house until like 11 o'clock. It was pretty intense.
In case you were wondering, Pabellon is just like Calvillo, it's a country boy wonder land. Mission Mexico-West Virginia!.. er I mean Aguascalientes. But what's different here in Pabellon is we also have to visit other ranchos like San Pancho and Rincon, and the Goma in our area. Everyday we have to take the community van for about 30 minutes to get to the other rancho.
How's the branch? Oh well. sadly, the branch has seen better days, the normal assistence(attendance) is like 20-25 people. In Calvillo it was the same, but the difference was that in Calvillo there were only 10 members that lived in the area. Here there's like 100, so there's a lot of work to do. The other good thing about the branch is that it's the branch/ward in my mission that has the longest amount of time without baptizing. There haven't been any baptisms here in more than 18 months. It's a long picking time. But hopefully that's about to change. We don't really have any investigatores bien potentes right now, but tomorrow we are going to put up a stand in Pabellon days, and we are going to give out lemonade and cookies, and Book of Mormons and all that fun stuff. So pretty much after that, all of Pabellon is going to want to be baptized.
My companion is super awesome too. He's probably one of the nicest companions I've ever had. He's like a giant teddy bear, and he invites me to eat free food at night, so who can complain.
Have a super awesome week, Happy Christmas!

Yep, both haircuts were done by yours truly.
