hey mom,

Well i had transfers this week and i got switched to the Area right next to my old one, but the funny thing is, is that it is really poor and it is the Most dangerous area in the mission, but that is o.k. we just have some special rules and if we follow those rules we will be o.k. my new house is really awesome except for the bathroom, when you sit down on the toilet, your knees touch the door and push it open a little bit, and when you take a shower, your leggs are touching the toilet, it is really awesome. But yea i am really excited for this transfer, it is like we are going to open up this area, because right now there aren´t that many investigators. This week with my companion elder Ag├╝ero and i we had to go to so many houses knocking doors to find people to teach, it was one week of a lot of walking, but it was the most satisfying work because i really felt that i had nothing left at the end of the day, but God always gave me the strength to do what i needed to the next day, it wasn´t until today that i felt beat, but now i feel ready for a better weak. We contacted this one family and the mother of the family let us in and asked us if we could talk to the family because right now my children don´t believe in God and they walk really bad stealing things and what not, and i told her that God gives us a chance to repent and our faith is like a seed that will grow, but by the end of the lesson that we had taught the spirit was extremely strong, everyone in the room had tears in their eyes, even the dad who was working on some plans in the next room felt the spirit to come join us in the middle of the lesson. It was so awesome, i knew that they all felt like they wanted to change, and i know they can, i told them it is going to be hard, but with the help of the spirit, we can do anything. that was my favorite experience for the week. i don´t really have too much time this week, but i would like to tell you that i love you mom, and i hope you have a great week,

love elder robert

p.s. i wanted to get my papers in because i only have about a year left and i have no plan after i get home, and plus everyone keeps asking what i am going to do after the mission and i usually don´t know what to say, but i am not sure if i want to do stuff with flowers, maybe it will be cool. but don´t worry i am 100% focused on the mission.
