Another reason the area is really tough is nobody is ever home. I had my first fallen through appointment this week. This lady that lives up the mountain (probably a 25 minute hike) just wasn't home for our appointment. That kind of stuff is hard to deal with but it's not a huge deal. It just gave us an empty hour which is never good so we ended up contacting all afternoon (which is a very very long time when literally NOBODY will let you in haha) So that day was kind of a wash. But whatever, our family that we're teaching in Utspantan, Eliseo and his kids, invited us to this weird evangelical service thing and even invited us to stay the night at their house, how nice of them! But yeah, we're not going to go to that, we're just going to keep trying to teach them and praying for them and hope that something happens. It's just tough because Utspantan is an hour from Cunén so it's really hard to get people to come to church (because the only meeting house is in Cunén) But like I said, we're trying :).
Also, elections were this week so everybody was pretty focused on that. They take over this country like something I've never seen before. We actually weren't allowed to go out proselyting yesterday because it was voting day haha. It was actually a pretty fun day though and then now today is pday so it's kinda like 2 days off lol. Kinda sucks because days always go slower when you're not working but it's still a lot of fun. Plus, we've got to go down to Xela again this week for a conference so we're staying the night in Quiche and heading down tomorrow and we probably won't get back til Wednesday afternoon. It's all good though :) Time flies though, it really does. I can't believe I've been here almost 2 weeks, it feels like a day and a half lol. But I love it, we're in a tough area but I know that it's prepping me for the rest of my mission in a good way. Plus, we have the greatest zone. There's only 12 people in Quiche and they're all gringos (They don't send Latinos here for some reason) so we have gringo zone and it's a whole ton of fun, I love it :)
Well, I think that's it, Love you all, the gospel is true, keep it up everyone :)
