So this first week was super interesting and a bit dificult. One, I had to get used to walking all the time again and it´s super frustrating after being on a bike having to walk because it´s so slow! Also it was difficult because we basically opened the area which means that no one was working here before so we didn´t have any families to teach when I got here so since I´ve gotten here it´s been just looking for people. It´s been pretty challenging, but nothing I can´t handle! There´s some pretty great people here and some pretty cool families that we´re seeing.
One cool story that happened this week is that we decided to go contact a certain area and the very first person we foun was a lady washing outside her house, so we went and talked to her. She sounded nice but told us that she didn´t have time in that moment to talk with us (which happens pretty often and usually means, I don´t want to talk with you.) but we put an appointment to come back sunday, so we went back yesterday and found her and started teaching her and found out some needs that she has and we were able to help her out. It wasn´t a normal lesson that we would have the first time, but we taught a person, not a lesson. It was pretty awesome. I have high hopes for her, just that she wants to start slow.
Well, there really isn´t more time to write, next week I´ll include a little more about whats going on here in Matamoros!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
