Carolyn was transferred to Patzicia. So we looked it up. Looks like a huge stake center from Google Earth! The weather is quite a bit different there too? The highs there aren't even close to what the lows were in La Gomera.
65/55, 62/56, 62/56, 64/54, 64/54, 62/52 those are the highs and lows for Tues - Sun. Oh yeah, looks like thunderstorms every day except for Friday. La Gomera (where she has been for the last 6 months has been in 90-100 every day)

So the change has been...a change. It is a lot different here and not just the weather. Besides the fact that I am FREEZING cold all the time, the people here don't like to let you talk to them about the gospel and literally run away from us. I think Heavenly Father sent me here to learn more patience and humility because it's basically a lot of knocking doors of people who don't want to talk to us haha. But I really like the area. We are working on getting help from the members because knocking doors doesn't work too well.
My companion is really great too. The members all love her so much and she is a really hard worker. Sunday was her birthday :)
Right now we are also working to find new investigators because there isn't anyone progressing right now but I know that we will because we are working really hard.
I was studying in Alma 26 last week and I read verse 27.."Id entre vuestros hermanos los lamanitas y sufrid con paciencia vuestras aflicciones y os daré el éxito." This really is a promised land because a lot of these people are descendants of the lamanites and they are all native to Guatemala. So we are just going to work hard with patience and Heavenly Father will help us have success because these are his chosen people. I love Patzicia!
