Week 1 in Port Arthur, TX

This as been a very good but long week!  I love it here and the people here are awesome! The only problem is that I have no idea what they are saying haha!  I have been studying hard trying to get the language down.  Elder Barrett is helping me out a lot with my Spanish and he is awesome! I just need to keep pressing forward with faith that god will help me with my challenges!

Well let me just say that we are in the ghetto jahaha!  We drove buy the store and there where a bunch cop cars and there was someone being taken out on a stretcher with a blanket over him so I thought that couldn't be good!  On tuesday nights we play basketball with a gang pretty much!  They are all of different cultures and races and the play straight up street ball haha!  We do play in the church and they do respect us and the church.  They don't swear or anything like that but we almost saw a couple fights haha!

This week has been full of a lot of bike riding! We do have a car but we only use it for like an hour each day.  On Saturday we rode at least 10 miles! It wasn't as hot because it was raining the entire time haha!  We also had a lesson on Saturday with a man named Robert.  The guy is so nice and he as a really nice family.  We taught him for about 1 hour and at the end of our lesson he started to show some emotion but he didn't say anything to us after the lesson other than we are meeting with him again on Saturday so we will see how that goes!  

We have a couple people that could be pretty interesting.  We will go visit with them this week and see how they are doing!  

I have had some good food so far, but I have lost weight because we ride our bikes so much and I sweat so much haha!  I can't wear any gray or tan pants because they will change color haha! 

That is all I really got this week! I love you all and hope you all have a good week!
