The weeks are flying by!!!! January 9, 2017

Hey everyone! wow how this week flew by! its so crazy to think that a week has already past! the days here in the mission are just going by too fast. On monday after we ended writing, my companion didn't even take the time to unpack his bags, we just went right to work! On Tuesday we had to go to Guadalajara for leadership council again and we were there  all day wednesday. Can I just say that these councils are suuuuuuuuper long and I truly believe that most of the people there just talk because they like to hear their own voice. Its pretty stressful having to be there honestly haha. but I survived another one and then we came home and got here late wednesday night thanks to alot of traffic. People down here are rioting and robbing and vandalizing and shutting down freeways because their mad that the gas price jumped up. So right now everything is pretty tense, here in morelia everything is still relaxed but everything in Guadalajara was pretty scary. Then thursday we worked hard and friday and saturday haha. My companion is a really hard worker! A little more about Elder Ruiz, Hes from the state of Mexico, he has 19 months in the mission and he told me he wants to work as hard as he can during his last few months in the mission! We have been talking to as many people as we can in the streets and in the buses and everywhere! we are really trying hard to find new investigators! Its pretty different from the way I worked with Elder Bocanegra, we tried to help out alot more with the less actives but Elder Ruiz really wants to baptize, both ways are good methods, and were only going to stop visiting the less actives that aren't progressing so that we can have more time to teach investigators. Yesterday the Stake president asked all the missionaries to sing a special hymn in a stake leadership meeting, and he also gave us a half hour to train the members on how they can help us better and what they can do so that we can all be more effective in the missionary work. Today we had a really fun zone activity! we played volleyball, capture the flag, and soccer of course haha. Then we all ate pizze and drank alot of coke! Im really excited for this next transfer! we already have so many good plans and activities were going to do i know that this transfer is going to fly by!! its gonna be february and im still gonna be thinking were in 2016 haha. Im loving the mission and everything is going great down here! I hope you all are able to feel the spirit in your lives each day, because its one of the best feelings ever to feel the spirit in our lives. Thank you all for your love and prayers. oh P.S.  planning out zone meeting and activities are hard enough, then they tell us we have to plan them out with the sisters!!! that was tough haha!! I guess its just preparing me for marriage haha! Have a great week I love you all! Love Elder Griffin
