Well its been a very interesting week. First off, we had the changes. I got to the chapel pretty early, which was good because it meant that I got time to talk to other missionaries and mess around a little bit. After that, they made all the trainers go into a little room and we had to wait there for like 45 minutes without any reason. After that, they introduced us to our kids. My kid's name is Elder Beltran and he's from Mexico. He's a pretty cool guy. He's a recent convert to the church, got baptized like a year and a half ago and is an old man. He's 25 years old. We're reopening the area Oratorio, which is in Zone Cuilapa, the zone where Barberena is. I was so happy when they told me that I was going to be reopening an area here in Cuilapa. It's easily been my favorite zone and Barbe my favorite area. We got here and the missionaries that had been here before hadn't done anything and so we're starting from 0 and working or rebuilding the area. We spent a lot of time contacting this week but we've found some promising families and people to teach. We got lucky because I already knew a little bit about the area like where a couple of members live and recent converts so we weren't completely lost. We had interviews with President Saturday and that was an adventure because they told us we were going to have the interviews in our area. This was really weird because we've always had the interviews in Cuilapa. We were all sitting here in the church waiting for him on Saturday when President called the district leader and told him he was in Cuilpa and wondering where we were at. I just laughed and felt happy that I didn't have to deal with any of that anymore. The interviews went really well, President told me what I should to do to have success in my area and I was able to ask him about what I should do for college. He asked me what I was going to study and I told him I was thinking about studying psychology and he told me that it doesn't really matter where I go because getting a job will depend on where I get a PHD so it would be better to go to the school that pays me more. So mom I want you to look and if SUU has a good psychology program and other programs that I would need for occupational therapy. If it does sign me up to go. Today were going to go to Barbe and I'm super happy about that. I can't believe that in just two weeks its mothers day and I'll be talking to you guys. Love you all a ton. Love Connor
That's my shower and let me tell you the water that comes out of here is far from warm! This is what my area looks like. Its so pretty!
