As for missionary work, this week was stinky. Everyone was drunk or busy and we didn´t get much done. 

We´re still working with Blanca. This week i´m going to either set a baptismal date with her or stop visiting her, because i´m getting impatient. She just needs to talk with her husband and tell him she wants to get baptized, but she´s so scared of conflict that she won´t do it. Ah... We´re going too fast for her this week. 

The only thing of note that happened was that i got robbed again! haha this time wasn´t as exciting though. here´s the story: 

it was like 7 o´clock and we were on the main road of our area. A drunk guy comes walking down one of the side streets toward us and yells elderes elderes, so we stopped to talk to him for a bit. He was telling us he wants to change and everything, so i was trying to get his address to visit him and help him get out of the terrible life pattern he´s in, when all of a sudden he yells "give me your watch" grabs my watch, which came off way too easily, and stumbled away. I had to fight every instinct in my body to not run him down and tackle him,. because he was super drunk and unarmed, but there were a lot of people around and the missionary handbook says we can´t fight back, so i just let him go. we followed him a bit and he walked around the corner and sold it to somebody quick. It lasted me almost exactly a year, the watch mom gave me for Christmas. I enjoyed that watch. 

Wednesday we have a conference with all the leaders of the mission with president risso, so i´m excited for that, and to see if we can get some investigators with baptismal dates! 

I also got a package from the ward, but the one from the family is nowhere to be found. Thanks a lot, ward! I love the harmonica especially, haha! 

Elder Hatch 

I don´t remember if i already sent this picture of Estefany´s baptism, but here it is! that´s her little brother, Piero on the side. Cutest little kid ever!


Elder Thomson and i went all out on new years eve and bought 7up and Fanta!


We hung out on Sunday (new years day) with our zone in our house and made guacamole and ground beef and had nachos, and watched the RM! Elder Zepeda was in my first zone and is one of my best friends here in the mission. He´s been in Jaen for 6 months though, and now he just came into our zone and is the other district leader with me! Elder Aroni and Gomez are the assistants to the president
