As for things with my companion he i doing so much better started to talk alot more this week. he said he is a really shy guy bu when he gets to know people he starts talking a lot more oh thats good. ad his trunkynessis fading away which is even better. so things are looking better and better. hnow hopefuly we can jst get some people to come t church with us. =) we re working hard and we shall see what this weeks brings. i love you all and miss you tons, happy easter yesterday. te amo.
