We had changes this week. Elder Smith is in Managua and I am with Elder Reese. He is so Freakin Awesome!!! He is a hard worker and knows Spanish very well. When we leave the house we only speak Spanish, so it will be very tough but so worth it. I am also showing Elder Reese around the area, so I've got to remember the names of all the recent converts and investigators. Once again tough, but worth it. I was not able to send you a letter this week due to changes, but I will send one next week. This week was crazy. We had divisions two times in a row, so I was busy making plans and showing people around the area. I contacted a lot of people with Elder Perkes and Cedeno, so I'm getting much better at speaking. Things are getting easier, and more difficult at the same time. Honestly, I think the key is just to be happy. I can't really change what happens around here but I can do my best to help out and enjoy every day. I'm trying my best, but I know I can do more. I feel like this change will really make a difference. Mom and Dad thank you so much for your help. I need all the help I can get.
