My new area is called Canlun, and it is flipping hot! We walk about the same distance between appointments, it is just a lot flatter. I miss the mountains! This week felt like the longest week I have had since like September. We have literally nothing going for us right now haha. When I showed up I found out we have zero progressing investigators and zero fechas (baptismal dates) ...so I guess I have some work cut out for me! Things in Canlun are pretty rough, but hopefully with some hard work it will start looking up here in a few weeks! Not a whole lot to report, but we did find 32 new investigators this week. They are a bunch of families that my companion has wanted to pass by with for a while. I don't know how we are going to get them to progress to be honest, they are all either unmarried, Catholic, or both. But you never know. So hopefully something good will happen with that! My area is 100% Kekchi so that's a bright spot! Also my buddies Elders Bos, Ellis, Kortsen and Smart are all in my district so its pretty sweet.
There is a little branch here, we get about thirty members out on a good Sunday. We live in an apartment right off the chapel. We have water sometimes, but it is so hot it dries up a bunch. Here are some pictures...
Also, surprise, I am back in Coban, so that pretty much stinks. It takes about the same amount of time to travel here as it did from my old area, we won't make it back today. Something in my blood count was low so they are checking that out again - my hemoglobin and one other thing that starts with H. They already took more blood. We will see what happens tomorrow, hopefully I'm not dying haha. I'm sure I am fine, they just want to be sure. I'm just really tired of Coban trips. I feel alright, I don't feel like I did when I was super sick, and I can work so that's a plus!
I love all of you!
Love, Elder Toolson
