Transfer 5 Week 4 August 18 2014

This week was a little bit tougher for me than usual. I just had a lot of expectations that ended up not working out.
Luckily our investigators Dario and Enrique are both progressing very well! both of them came to church, and we had great lessons with both of them this week as well! We have a date set for Dario on the 30th for his baptism, and for Enrique on the 31st! So I am getting really excited for them! I can really see the Gospel helping them change for the better, and it makes me happy just to see them happy!
Other than that we had a lot of appointments this week that didnt work out. We showed up and nobody was home. The thing about Mexico is that NOBODY wants to say no. We ask if we can come to share a message with them , they say yes, but they actually aren't interested at all. I actually don't mind when people tell me that they arent interested. That way I can focus my time on the people who really want to listen.
Another thing that kind of sucks is that my companion is having problems with his back. We actually had to go to the doctor everyday in the morning for the first two weeks of the transfer. But it didnt help him at all. So it is getting hard for him. We are gonna have to go to the doctor again sometime this week I think so he can get another analysis or somtething.

But overall this week was a good week. Someone told me before my mission that "In the mission more dissapointments happen than good things, but the good things make all of the dissapointments worth it". This week I could definitely see that that is true. And I am trully about all of the wonderful things that are happening here!
