week 4 transfer 10, elder grillions in the mexico internet cafe

hey kiddos this week we did a rad zone activity. it took up a loot of time, like 3 hours every morning. we just practiced singing. i really liked the activity, but it basically took the place of studies and i´m really happy it´s over. We performed in 4 wards this sunday, and then we asked for refrences from all the members and we got a toooon of references. in our ward we got 182 names of people that we might be able to visit. we have to go and visit the memebrs and make plans with them to contact them. but man we got a mountain of references. but i did feel kind of uneffective this week. or really these three weeks in durango i feel like we haven´t made a lot of progress. but i know that God is in charge and he will bless us for our efforts.

general feels about this area and my comp Elder Esparza is a wonderful guy. Really meek and good natured. He also has a great sense of humor, probably the closest to mine than any other missionary that I’ve served with. Madero is a great area, i think we can have a lot of success here. Right now we hardly have anything but  i think if we try hard we can make it happen.
covenant  power this week i have also been thinking about the power of the covenant that we have with Jesus Christ. Well all you baptized fools know what i`m talking about. Well our part of the covenant is to offer…

Well i got sent to Durango! it was a great surprise and i feel really good about it. I don´t have a lot of time but i will tell you what happened. on Wednesday in the night, me and elder Montesino went to the house of the zone leaders in district Madero. and they were like "man elder Grilliot we got some big news" and i was like "oh heck" what do i do. and i felt kind of nervous and they told us that me and elder Montesino were going to have emergency cambios. and they told me that i would be going to Durango with elder esparza, and another elder from Peru would be coming from Durango to be elder Montesinos companion. and we were really surprised, but i packed up all my stuff and left early the next day. i waited with elder Garcia and elder Montesino for an hour in the bus stop and then i got on a four hour bus ride to Durango and i love the city of Durango. it´s super green and cool. it makes Mexico look cooler. it´s still a desert but it´s a cooler desert. and the…
