Hey family how is it going. If this keyboard let me I would send a question mark. This week was pretty fast and not too exciting. I feel as if we have invited half of Monjas to get baptized this week. In literally every lesson we popped the question.  So in the mission when I entered we had to do 10 contacts a day for each missionary. So twenty a day in companionship. 140 in a week. About 7 months ago we only had to contact five men and five families everyday. Now we have to do 35 everyday. 245 every week. And it is hard. We did it this week, but it is definitely challenging to do them all and have all the lessons and everything. 
Monday was p-day and we didn't do much. Outside the capital there is literally nothing to do. So we just ate. And I saw a guy wearing a junior jazz jersey. 
Tuesday we had to go to Jutiapa for a capacatation meeting for district leaders and it was pretty good. I learned a lot of good stuff there. We have been putting in all to practice this week. 
Wednesday was a day filled with fallen appointments and lots of contacts. Not the greatest of days. 
Thursday we put a few baptismal dates. So that was good. We also went to a little village that is part of our area. It's called Las Palmas and it's about a 15 minute tuk tuk ride from Monjas. There are members there, but we couldn't find any of them home. So that was a bust. Also it got dark and we couldn't get a tuk back to Monjas. so we walked. 
Saturday we taught a great family. They don't know how to read so it is harder to teach them. But they are cool. We put some dates with them so we will see what happens in the future. Also one of the two baptismal dates we put on Thursday is never home anymore so I'm pretty sure it fell... 
Sunday was Sunday. We went to Church and the Branch President couldn't come due to a death in the family. So the Sacrament wasn't ready or anything. We prepared it and started about 20 minutes early. A woman that we had contacted came in right before we passed the sacrament and it was great. She stayed all three hours and we are visiting her tomorrow. So we hope to work with her. 
Well the Church is true. I heard about the BYU/Utah game.... that's solid. Everyone knows I'm a Buckeye fan.

 I love you all. 

Love, Elder Nicholas White
