Happy mother's day everyone! As always, it was great to see the family and remember how blessed I am to have such a wonderful mother. Crazy to think that Ethan will enter the MTC (come to think of it, I don't even know which MTC), in just a few weeks. Other than that, the week was pretty hard. The zone is really struggling because as a mission, we are incredibly young. A huge wave of missionaries left the mission a few changes ago and a huge wave came in so the average missionary in Gmala City Central has much less than a year. In our zone there's two companionships where both companions have six months or less. It's a challenge, but we're blessed in that they are all great missionaries and very willing to do the things they should, we just have to help them learn how to do it. Also, Mother's day did kind of kill our church attendance. Most of our investigators were with their moms and not at church. Still though, I'm so grateful for every week and every day I have. I love being able to help others come unto Christ, I especially love helping families receive the same blessings that mine enjoys. I love feeling the Spirit guide us and testify of our words.
Moving on, due to some challenges with DearElder, it would probably be advisable for all wishing to write me to use email instead, thank you.
Love, Elder Cannon

missionary work is hard, sometimes, not so much...

hejust bought. Honestly, it's hard to overestimate the power and utility of a machete.

, when it started raining and the street flooded. Pablo, our recent convert,
followed the example of the pioneers, as he bravely stripped off his shoes and
offered to give us all a ride across. Afterwards, a random lady walked
up and was trying to cross so he just grabbed her and walked her over. Pilas.
