And it Rained for 40 days and 40 nights...

Okay so maybe not that long, but at least every afternoon it rains. Which is really cool for a desert rat like me.
This week's quote is "If you stumble rise up, go on." Boyd K Packer. This playes into our lessons with Ivan this week. At the CCM our investigators are actually our teachers who act as people they know. So we teach Hermano Aguñigua as Ivan. Our second to last lesson didn't go that well. The Spirit was there but He definatly wasn't leading. It would have been so easy at that pointto just give up and just say that we are horrible teachers and can't be missionaries. But, President Packer's quote. And so instead we rose up and went on. And boy did it pay off. Our next lesson was increadible. It all started when we changed our opening song to Abide With Me tis Eventide instead of Joseph Smith's First Prayer because we could see our teacher was having a bad day. And from there the Spirit took over. We talked a lot about making positive changes in our lives and how to do that through the gospel. To be honest I can't remember what was said I just remember that tears were shed at a few points, and the feeling that accompanied them. It was probably the best lesson we have given thus far. 
In other news, I gave my second talk in Spanish ever this past Sunday, and I think it was understandable and gramatically correct (you never really know). 6 missionaries left for the feild, 5 sisters and 1 elder. Also on Wednesday 78 new missionaries arrived, which doesn't sound like a lot until all of them come to dinner at the exact same time and block your entrace to the comodor (where we eat). It's going to be even worse this week when 100 arrive. The summer wave has begun. 
I hope all is going well in your lives. I would love to hear about anything that is going on.

This week's picture is my district with one of teacher's Hermana Linares before she left to teach another distrect. It very actually describes the Elde's personalities.
