     Let me tell you about the most stressful week of my mission. So it started out last Monday, right. I spent the day running all over Mita saying goodbye to all the investigators and members we could find. It was really hard to leave because Mita had become my home and I was leaving it in the hands some other elders I didn't know but now I do know that the Elders that are there are really hard workers and Mita is in good hands. The change meeting was crazy as usual. Everyone is really nervous and just wants to know where they're going to go and who they're going to be with. My changes were the second to last zone so I got to see almost all of the changes and know where all the people I know are at. When my named popped up I about crapped myself because under my picture was the title, trainer.  I thought it must be some sort of mistake but nope my new comp is a Elder with one change in the mission and can't speak Spanish to save his life. His name is Elder Nungutau and his last comp was a Latino Elder. My comp is awesome and I love him a ton, like I said he can't speak the language at all but he's here and he trying so the Lord is going to bless him. On top of training, my comp knows almost nothing about the area . He doesn't know who the recent converts are or most of the investigators so I'm pretty much starting from nothing and going from there. 
     This week has also been the week that I've seen the most blessings. The Lord has helped me so much and I've been able to see his hand in my life more than ever. I've also grown a lot closer to him and learned to rely on him a lot more. I don't think I've ever prayed as much or as fervently as I have this week and he has responded in amazing ways. 

     My new area is called La Justo and its inside the cap so its much colder but we have hot water for showers so I'm happy. Its really close to the airport.  There are always airplanes flying over and they're really close. Its a little bit rougher but I don't think well have any problems.  My comps really big so nobody should bother us. The district is about the same size, same with our zone. I don't think I need anything other than your prayers. Sorry I don't have any pictures this week.   I forgot my camera in the house so next week you'll get a ton I promise. 
     So today we had an awesome conference where we got to listen to a member of the first quorum of the seventy. It was amazing and I learned so much about how I can use the spirit more in my teaching and how we have to teach the Atonement always because that is what will change peoples lives. 
     To answer questions. We see the mission president at the change meetings and usually once in the change during interviews or a zone conference. I don't remember if he asked me if I was a hard worker when I came out, that was a long time ago.  I haven't seen a lot of drugs.   Drunk people, ya I've seen a ton and I have seen some high people but that's about it. Never had a gun pulled on me or even had someone try to rob me. I've been very lucky so far. Nope don't need a rain coat.  I think I'll be good with my umbrella and ya the bananas are pretty good. I love you all so much and Chase I'm going to try to get you birthday letter sent sometime this week.  You're going to have so much fun with Noah, that kid always cracked me up. Love you all a ton. Love Connor
