The Missionary Life (from 4/7/2014)

Alright so just to help some people understand what missionary life is like right now its like this.

Right now every missionary is out of money. I mean literally we have no money. All of us, we used to be able to withdraw every two weeks, but this past month they are having us withdraw on the 15th of every month. The bad thing is that we are only allowed to withdraw on Mondays ( our p day). So right now I am using the money that I have saved up. And because we have no money it is hard to be able to pay for transportation. So working has turned into a lot of walking. Lots and Lots of walking. So it is not until the 21st that I get money again. Luckily when I get it I will have money.. but until then...

alright no more complaining about money issues...

Now the more fun stuff.

Recently we had another baptism, it was fun, I preformed the ordinance. Very good, lots of people attended. The person(Paulo) is 14, and very funny, lots of freakin deep doctrine questions. and other fun stuff. But yea, another baptism. Only my 9th:(

So a few days after the baptism I found out that I was transferring... So yea, I guess I have a new job to do now... somewhere else. Everyone thinks I am going to be a Zone Leader... But I have yet to receive a call from President Balledos. I do not think it will be soon that I get made a Zone Leader, I am enjoying District Leader more. Much more close with the missionaries. And I do not have to worry about having to deal with every problem of a zone. Which is good. Although the amount of rumors that go around is quite entertaining it is also kinda irritating sometimes.

As I get further into my mission, and less and less people write to me. It gets less and less fun to email back to people... seriously. There are a few missionaries who have stopped emailing friends and family and only email other missionaries because of the lack of communication between people and them.. Dont worry. I do not think that will happen to me... hopefully.

Love,
Elder Rivera
