Lots of announcements!!!.

Hey everyone! alright so this week was a pretty good week, we traveled alot for leadership council and we also have been working pretty well in our area! last monday since we had to leave early monday night to go to guadalajara we just spent the day basically being tourists haha, we went to the super nice mall here with the sisters and bought some pizza and that was the highlight of our day haha. Tuesday we had leadership council! and it was officially the longest ive ever been in! we got to the church at 8 for breakfast, even though it didnt show up till 830, then we started everything at 915 and didnt get over until almost 6 pm! Elder Herrmann made the joke afterwards, "this is the only council ive been in thats had 3 halftimes" hahah so yeah it was pretty long but it was good! also we found out that the first presidency has now made the rule that we can only write for an hour and a half! so i know ive said it before but let me say it again, if im not able to respond to all of you each week please forgive me but i will do my best! also in leadership council, since it was the 4th of july and since im about as american as they get, of course i took my flag and we took lots of pictures with it haha(pictures to come, and im sure their already on facebook). since leadership council didnt get over until way late we werent able to take a bus until 830 and ended up getting home at 1130 at night! just one of the many "perks" of being a zone leader haha. The next day we had the district meetings which went pretty good, and handing out all the materials and packages afterwards made me and my companion feel like santa clause handing out presents haha. speaking of santa clause, he made a suprise visit to our house that day as well, he brought us new mattresses and irons and a new ironing board as well! that really is a perk of being a zone leader haha! weve slept a lot better since. That night we took our investigator to have an interview with the stake president, and the stake president told us after that he put a goal with him that he can be baptized in 15 days. so were going to keep working with him and we hope that that works out and we can have a baptism for the first time in about a year in this ward! Thursday was a pretty normal day, usually we play soccer with the young men from 8 to 9, but since we had to plan for the zone conference we only got to play for the last half hour, another "perk" of being a zone leader haha. Friday was pretty normal not too much to say there. Saturday as well was just  a normal day, visited a few people and everyday this week we have been planning more and more things for our zone conference that we are going to have TOMORROW! and yesterday was Sunday, always the best day of the week! I always love sundays on the mission because for the little bit of time that we are taking the sacrament i can feel peace. And today has been quite the adventure that me and my companion werent expecting! we played soccer again with the young men this morning and afterwards we took a trip to a place called "tocumbo" its basically the home of the popsicles down here. we thought it was only 40 minutes away, and when the bus driver told us it was gonna be 1 hour 40 minutes, we got just a liiiiitle bit wide eyed haha. but it was cool, the bus ride was awesome because we left zamora and passed through little towns and beautiful mountain sides, felt great to be out of the city. we got to the little town of tocumbo, of course bought a popsicle, took a few pictures, ate lunch and ate the best tacos i have ever ate in my life, then took a bus back home! tonight we get to keep planning for the zone conference and this week is gonna be the conference, interviews, then just work! I want to also wish my little Sister Makell happy birthday this week! i love you sis i hope you have a way fun birthday! I love you all so much thanks for all that you do! have  agreat week! Love Elder Griffin
