April 4th, 2016

So this time I actually did change areas. My new area is called Las Charcas, and my new companion is Elder Bricher from Cochabamba, Bolivia. Its a little weird being in a completely different part of Santa Cruz. This new area is huge and its mostly factories in the middle of no where. But im super excited to be here. So far the ward is super cool. And the people in this area are cool too.

This week was pretty chill. We spent a lot of time getting to know the area and the members. The other thing is that im coming into this area with 5 people with baptismal date and there are 2 others that are progressing really well too. The sad part is that the Elder I replaced was everyone's favorite missionary. Like 5 or 6 people have cried when we told them that he left. But ima try to do all i can here. We didnt really have any citas [appointments] this week but we are going to have a lot in this next week.
General Conference was pretty dope this year. I though it talked a lot about helping people that have fallen away and helping others in general. I feel like a big problem here is that the people dont really help out with anything. Home and Visiting teachers don{t even really exist here and we rarely have members to go to visits with us. Its a little sad that people would basically abandon each other. But all the talks this Conference were pretty good.
Thats it for this week. Hope you all have a good week.
Love Elder Crisp
