Imagine your back in West Virginia, but suddenly you're speaking Spanish, and everyone is Mexican. Welcome to Calvillo! Zacatecas was normalville, EspaƱita was cholo landia, and here is hillbilly wonderland. Awesome! Everyone here has their little pick up and is wearing a cowboy hat at all times. A few of our investigatores went huntin' and we weren't able to teach them. Calvillo is like a little farm town that's 1 hour from Aguascalientes. So that means we are the only missionaries out here, and pretty much the only members too,.. its a branch and the branch president doesn't even live here, he lives in Aguascalientes. When I showed up my companion (who's been here for 2 transfers) said that there's 6 members. Apparently there like 8 or 9 but 3 don't go. This Sunday there were like 20 people, a bunch of investigators showed up, it was awesome! Ya so that's pretty much it, Elder Asencios my new companion is from Lima Peru. He was actually in my district in Zacatecas and if you might recall I had exchanges with him when he had 2 weeks in the mission, and I had like 4. Now we've gotten all big he has like 6 months and I have like 10, chin! He's a pretty good elder, and I'm happy that we're together. Yep, so there's all the juicy deets, I know there's a bunch of stuff missing, but, well, tough luck.
Anyways after I arrived here the next day we had the exciting district meeting. It was kind of mess and I didn't have any time to prepare anything, but the ap's helped me out and it all turned out fine. Tomorrow's round 2. Also this week we have an exciting meeting with the whole world, sources say that the Prophet and 12 Apostles are going to change the mission schedule and some other exciting deets. According to los chismosos they're going to change the daily planning from the night to the morning, and apparently they're going to change the study hour and stuff like that, but who knows. It should be pretty exciting.
This week I was thinking a little bit about faith and a little bit about the conversion process and I found this great scripture, "...and because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all sweet, and which is white above all white, yea, and pure above all that is pure, and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, nither shall ye thirst" Alma 32:42, I like that it says by your diligence, patience, and faith, ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, that ye may be filled. The conversion is a process of a life time, and by our fruits, we shall receive the everlasting fruit. I hope everyone has a great week
Love Elder Webb
