It's not so much "whatever that means." It's whoever...

Happy Easters!

That reminds me of a quote from Nacho Libre. Hahahaha...

This week was good. Actually, it was an okay week. Semana Santa
basically means that everyone either goes on vacation for an entire
week, or they sleep all day every day, and maybe go out to wash the
car. And then on Friday they don't eat any meat besides fish.

What fun.

Isabel was one who went on vacation for the whole week, so we haven't
talked to her since last Sunday. I hope she's doing well. Even more, I
hope she has ganas de casarse. Because all the papers and stuff that
we went all over the place to find are going to expire soon. We're
hoping and praying that everything goes well.

My new companion is awesome. He's the first American comp I've had. It
actually almost never happens here. The Gringos are always with a
latino. So it's kind of cool. He's a hard worker. He's from Arizona.
idk if I've told y'all already.

Elder Coronel, my other companion, is going home in a week and a half.
Crazy. He still can't believe he's done. I can't believe it either.

So, this week is General Conference! And it falls on April 6th. Cool,
eh? I'm actually really excited. It'll be interesting to hear the
number of missionaries serving. Although they'll be the numbers from
December last year. But I'm sure it'll be lots more than last year.
This next transfer we're getting 37 new missionaries! And there are
only 4 leaving. That's 2 entire zones of missionaries! "El estandarte
de la verdad se a izado. Ninguna mano impía puede detener el progreso
de la obra..."

I love this work.

Thanks for everything, y'all. Take care. Stay in school. Don't do
drugs. You know. Sean juiciosos.

Elder Joey

P.S. The pictures are of when we painted the ceiling at Gloria's
house. I also made a delish peach crumb pie to eat. Yum!
