Aug 29

This week was pretty good. Elder Scoubes and I have gone on all sorts of adventures, and we get along really well. We are pretty similar, and find the same things funny, so we are off to a great start.
Tuesday was the start of all our adventures. We went into Mexicali as usual for the District Meeting, but they changed the location on us. They changed the location because of some renovations to the building, or something like that, but now it will be back to normal. We were told to take a certain bus, but when we did, we ended up in the middle of nowhere. We got so lost! We took it the other way, but still didn`t find the church, so we ended up taking a taxi, and got to the meeting an hour late! It was super crazy.

Then, on Thursday, we had to go into Mexicali again, because we had to send in our papers to renew our gringo cards, and we don`t have a packaging system here. The mission does all the visa stuff. We just had to send in our signatures so they are able to do it. We got to the bus stop ten minutes after the bus had come, so had to wait an hour and a half for the next bus. Then on the bus a guy got on, and started talking about changing the world, and a motivational speech thing. Then, he started handing out free juices, and turns out that he then started talking about those people who didn`t take a juice, (Me and my companion, and a few others) don`t know God or the Bible, because we could have gone and given the juice to a person on the street who was thirsty. It was really interesting to see how he manipulated the topic, and could get away with it. It just goes to show that with enough words and eloquence, you can convince people of anything. But, as missionaries, we don't convince, that is the Spirit`s job.
