Changes before changes

Well we had kind of a crazy week.  It started out pretty good.   Oh yeah I had my interview last Monday, that went well.  It wasn't really an interview, more of an advice for when you go home type of thing.  It was probably one of the calmest times I've ever been in the mission office.  Usually when you go there it's because someone did something wrong, not that I've been to the office that many times.  Usually it's for problems my companions have had.  It was raining so I got wet before getting on the bus and there was air conditioning, so I was super cold while I was there.
Anyway, so this week was kind of rough in the middle.  So the assistants came Friday while we were all in the chapel, and not in a very Christlike way.  I'm honestly not really sure what happened, but Elder Rodriguez isn't with me any more, which is too bad.  He was one of my favorite companions. I've been with an elder named Elder Conger for the last couple of days.  He is one of our zone leaders.  He goes home one change after I do, and is honestly probably trunkier than I am.  Which isn't super bad.  The baggiest I've ever been with is Elder Gonzalez, that was awful.
We've had lots of trouble trying to get people to come to church.  This week was stake conference and it was super good.  After the adult session they even gave us tamales, so that was cool.  It was a little different, they even showed videos.  They talked a lot about family
The whole not getting along with a companion thing is rough.  I've had a couple I really wanted to punch in the face.  I was even in a trio that wanted to punch each other in the face, that's even more fun.  There are some days where I think I have no idea what I'll do coming home, and other days the assistants storm your house and take your companion, and I think, yeah studying sounds like fun.
I don't remember if it was this week or last week, I think it was this week, but it hailed.  That was the first time I've seen hail in Guatemala.  Elder Rodriguez said it was the first time he had seen hail in his life.  It was raining pretty hard and the wind was going pretty hard too.  There was a hurricane that passed through part of Guatemala, I don't remember if I told you this, but one of the elders from Puerto Barrios was with me for a day because of that.  So that's fun.
That's too bad the pear picking ended.  I kind of wanted to pick pears.  I want to go swimming too. And eat all the garden.
Well I don't have much time left and I don't know what else to write.  I guess I'll see you all soon.
