As the title of my email indicates, this week was above average, especially for Tecámac. Here in the Mission Mexico Pachuca, our standard of excellence in lessons for the week is 40. Depending on the area and how receptive the people are, there are certain areas/zones where it is relatively easy to hit said standard. In my 6 months Mixquiahuala, I hit it almost every week without relative difficulty. In my 3 months in Venta de Carpio (before Mixquiahuala), we fought every week to try to get 30, and we didn't even hit that very constantly. You can see why I was slightly dismayed when we received the changes 3 weeks ago and found I would be returning to Tecámac right next door to Venta de Carpio.
I'm really not sure what happened this week, but we hit the ground running with our missionary work here. We committed various members to come out with us, and started contacting various references given to us. We actually found quite a few receptive people (who were unable to come to church yesterday for reasons we will soon find out) who we think can progress. At the end of the week, we nailed exactly 40 lessons. Needless to say, I was rather excited. The best part is that the entire zone had a similar kind of success; everything in terms of numbers went better this week. The hard part was coming up with zone goals for things to improve upon in the following week.
The bad thing is that this week we all start from zero again... Oh well, that's how the mission goes. We do some neat stuff, then we get to do it all over again. We already have some pretty crazy stuff planned for this week, so we'll see how it goes.
I had some good pictures I took this week, but my camera doesn't seem to want to connect to the computer. We'll see if next week it wants to cooperate... Next week we're actually planning on going to the temples of Teotihuacán (you can look them up; they're pretty neat), so my time to write may be shortened (you have been warned!) Have a great week, everyone! Tell someone you love that they're in your thoughts! :)
