Elder Alvarez is great. He is from Colombia but he looks like he's from the US too because he is super white. Everyone thinks he speaks English haha. But no I am the Senior companion still and district leader. Its nice though because I have someone who doesn't need to be dragged around so I don't have to worry as much now. He also helps me a lot because I get frustrated pretty easily and he is always pretty light and cheery. It helps a lot and I'm trying to work on being more patient still.
It should be a good, interesting week this week though because this weekend is the Chilean Independence days. That means lots of drunk people and makes it a pretty fun day of contacts.I was in the MTC the first time it happened so I don't really know how it will be. Everyone says its pretty fun though and that everyone is happier because they are always eating good food this week. Should be fun though.
More than that though. I am doing well and just complete a year in the mission. It scares me to think that other people say it goes by even faster the second year. It doesnt seem possible. But hope you all have a good week. Remember to trust in the Lord and everything will be alright in the end.
