Hey y’all how was your Valentines and presidents day?
Out here they are just another day, ha ha you can’t really celebrate Valentines day as a missionary, and Presidents day just moved our p-day to Tuesday this week so not much change in our normal schedule.
Anyways here is a story for y’all. Since Donald Trump has taken office all of the Hispanics we talk to are a little afraid that they are going to be booted over back to their own countries, and that there is going to be a wall they can’t get over. They have told us that apparently there are some Hispanics that are now training to get fit enough to climb over a wall. I have been in a few brainstorming sessions about ways to get around the wall ie: tunnels, planes, and catapults. Ha ha its been pretty interesting. Everyone is also a little bit more afraid of us now. When they see us in our white shirts and ties walking down the street they think we are immigration. I was talking to some of the other elders on Sunday and they told me a story about how they were tracting down a street in Kenner and there was a party going on outside with a whole bunch of Hondurans, but when they started walking up the street and the people in the party saw them, they all ran into their houses. They didn't walk, they ran as fast as they could so they wouldn't be caught by La Migra. So tracting is going to be a little harder from now on.
Also this last week we got our investigator axel on date for baptism on the 11th of March, right after transfers. so I probably will not be seen his baptism but that is ok with me as long as he goes through with it. He is super solid though and has been reading the Book of Mormon since before we even started teaching him, thanks to some of his friends in our ward.
