So yes I have been chastised and I guess that I will just have to do a better job with pictures and longer emails.
This week has been pretty good for the most part!! We are finding lots of people that are really open to talk with us about Jesus this time of year. We usually contact people for about 2 hours a day. So we just need people to be home now when they say we can come and visit them. But a really good week for the most part.

I have been working really really hard on memorizing more words in Spanish the past couple of days. It is starting to pay off. I can pretty much understand anything anybody says. It is a lot easier when you can understand the question of the investigators.
We won't have a baptism this week and we were a little sad about that. We just couldn´t teach all the lessons fast enough to Brayan. We have been working so hard and are not seeing much progress in anyone and that is discouraging. We were talking the other day in estudiar compañerismo (companionship study) and we both said how disappointed we were. I remembered a little quote in preach my gospel that says how you shouldn't measure your success by baptisms. Think at the end of each day if you have given the Lord your all and worked as hard as you can - then you have had a successful day. I have remembed that every day this week.

We are teaching a lady who went to church for 2 years when she was 19. She knows so much about the church....it is kind of hard to teach her actually. Her daughter is really awesome though. She said that she know it is true. We just need them to go to church now.
I don´t exactly know when we will skype. We just found someone who is going to let us use their house so yeah. I get to call you on christmas eve on the telephone for like 5 minutes to tell you exactally when and all that jazz. so I will call that night will all the details.
Love elder George
