The dog bite is healing and looking pretty good.
They had a conference in Mercedes with Elder Arnold, the area president. Elder Arnold was "dropping cane" on the missionaries since that is the job of the leaders. It was all in Spanish so Jaydan didn't understand all of what was said that day but he did thinks he got the important stuff so it wasn't that bad. After the conference they worked in that area and contacted a ton of people and had two really good talks with two ladies. They had some good references also to give to the missionaries serving in that area. (luckies!) The food was okay that day too which was nice.
Jaydan worked really hard this week and the numbers showed it. But Jaydan is still more concerned about the quality of things instead of just the quantity like so many missionaries get caught up with. Jaydan thinks his way of thinking just makes more sense. (I agree!) Jaydan likes working hard and says the days just fly by when they do. It makes him feel good about himself and that work they he was able to accomplish. They are working with some really good investigators. One, Zulli, starting trusting the Elders and telling them all of her problems and different things. Jaydan thought it was weird....but cool that she would trust them enough to tell them things her family might not even know about. They are still working with the dad of the boys they baptized but he hasn't quit smoking yet....doing better but hasn't completely stopped. The girl they were suppose to baptize started disobeying her parent and her parents got mad and won't let her get baptized if she is going to be bad. They won't even let her talk to the missionaries now so they will have to wait and see what happens.
Spanish update.....about the same-learning a little more and maybe even understanding a little more too but still is very hard and frustrating at times.
Jaydan ("freaking") got called FAT by one of the less active members. (a lady) Jaydan said that it is true though but not too bad. Jaydan is eating less now trying to control his fatness. (he said it really isn't that bad at all)
That's about all that Jaydan can remember of the week. He is doing good. He almost got hit by a car and moto (maybe motorcylce?) too. The people really "suck" at driving and Jaydan hates it.....he said they are "horrible".
