On Tuesday Elder Castillo and I made the most of or last day together solo because we recieved our new companion (Castillo's replacement) on Tuesday night. We were not very excited to be honest, but Elder Gonzalez (the new Castillo) is actually super awesome and fun and cool. These past days with him have been super fun and we are always laughing and having a blast. He for some reason thinks I'm like the funniest person in the world haha. Yesterday he was telling us how "We are working so hard and always busy and doing so much and there is never time to rest and it's exhausting! But these past 4 days with you guys has been the best and most fun I've had my whole mission!" So that was really cool to me because it goes to show that even though we are always super busy and doing important things (which sometimes causes us lots of stress) we still always manage to have a lot of fun together and enjoy ourselves. Working hard and being obedient doesn't mean you can't have fun. It's that while you are working hard and being obedient, you have fun along the way and enjoy what comes your way.
Elder Gonzalez worked for the East mission doing the same exact things he will be doing here in his position in the office so he already knows pretty much everything. Castillo's job to train him is like a piece of cake!
For PDAY we went to Los Cocos for lunch at one of my converts house. Elder Gonzalez served in Los Cocos too so it was fun for him. Later on in the day we went to the church to play basketball with the young men. It was going well and we were all playing. But all of the sudden one of the kids just started freaking out and was crying and throwing a fit. He picked up a bunch of rocks and was chucking them at this other kid. We still don't even know what happened but we had to hold him down. He wouldn't calm down or stop throwing rocks so we put him outside the gate to calm down. While out there he broke a big rock so he could have little ones to throw. After like ten minutes he disappeared so we had to go look for him because he is like 10 so he can't be walking in the streets by himself. I went and ran like two blocks down and found him. I picked him up and carried him as he skwermed in my arms yelling "let me go! Let me go! I know how to get home! Greer let me go!" And I was like "I'm either going to carry you all the way back or you can walk. But I am in charge of you and I won't let you go anywhere by yourself." Eventually one of the high Councilmen showed up and drove him back on his motorcycle. But other then that it was a fun time! Haha.
Well that was my week. Love you guys!
