Week 19

Kevin is back in the city of Veracruz, and his living conditions are terrible...all your prayers would be appreciated!!!

(everyone) Well this week is going to be super short, but I am just going to share a little bit about what has been going on this week, and how awesome that conference was (that was honestly the best). So I got transferred from my little Santiago (I will be getting rich some day and buying a summer home in that place because I love it so much) to Progreso Veracruz, Veracruz. Which means that I am in the ghetto section of the city of Veracruz, and all I will say is that Santiago may have been poorer, but they really did not show it like they do here in this section of the city. My house, lets just say is basically borderline inconsistent with our calling(the bathroom has no roof, and there is no shower), that said, I really have treasured the chance that this has given me to grow here. Like I really really enjoy getting to experience a new trial and become a different person from living in pretty poor conditions. Another thing, never ever ever ever pray to not receive someone as a a companion, first off you will definitely receive them, second off, you might get along with them better than you think. I did that my first transfer about my current companion, and they just put me with that guy (I swear that God really has quite the sense of humor). With that in mind, I am getting along with my companion wel enough, its not a divine companionship, but we each do what we have to according to the others likes and dislikes. They say that each companion tries to teach you something about your future wife, if that is the case, I had better start with some yoga because I will need to be super flexible. My new area is gigantic, like I cannot describe how big it is and I am just talking about the area I work in. I could not run from one side to the other, and remember in mexico it is all walking. My companions former companion just finished his mission (we say he died) so he kind of stoppped caring about this transfer, which means that we have no one really to work with right now, which is awesome. I´ve been pushing my companion really hard to go contacting more, it isbashed on a ton by so many people, but I have found my absolute best investigators just through sheer pounding the 
pavement work. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the conference, I loved it, and it was wonderful. I wish
 I could write more, but out of time, loveyou all,
