Week # 69 Crazy Quince años! y Kimberly

   So this week was super fun lots of photos. I think this will be my 2nd to last week in this area. We went to a 15 year brithday party. So here the 15th birhtday is like nuts, they go hard, the godfather and godmothers here throw the parties and they make it awesome.

We were only allowed to go for like an hour, but it was just nuts like i cant explain. Elder Graham wanted to take pictures, so we like went in front of like 200 people to take a picture with this girl Daniella, SO AWKWARD. Just like 4 missionaries taking pictures in front of like 200 people just awkward as heck. Daniella is going to get baptized either this week or next:) so she loves the gospel a lot. She is going to be such a strong convert!
 I love the ward here and we are finding so many new investigators. We played soccer the other day and found 12 new investigators in 1 hour it was nuts:) I love soccer more than ever to be honest. I love the gospel more though, for sure. This weeks district meetings topic was humility. So I dressed up as a hobo and taught the class in my hobo suit. It was dope I will send pictures on Monday:)
I just love the mission the more the months go along. 

      Que tengan bonita semana todos!

Week # 68 I love banda, I'm Mexican.


So yesterday in the sacrament meeting this homeless guy just comes in the church, and is just standing up in the middle of the meeting. He was in the middle of the isle, and nobody wanted to say anything so I was across the room and went over and sat by him... He smelled so bad, it was the hardest thing ever to stop me from gagging in the meeting... But after ward he followed me around and everyone in the church like hated me cause they thought he was my invesigator even though I have never seen this guy in my life. Good times. 

I destroyed everyone in volleyball today with the help of Elder Graham. We found a bunch of new investigators, and we got free cake from them on the daily. It rocks. Also, we had a bunch of other invesigators in church and I feel bad because of the stench of this homeless man. But we are working super hard! And I got my flight plans and I'm nervous cause it is all coming to a close and I'm super sad.

 Lifes good. 

And yes I also do service projects. And this guy is a super funny guy from Tijuana, and he is always drinking liqour. I call him El Jefe.

And the bird pooped on my hand...

Love Elder Rody

Week # 67 Invasion and Retencion

So the invasion here in my house started like 3 weeks ago. So there are these HUGE ants that are invading my house. I was getting a drink out of my water bottle at like 2 in the morning, and I take a giant swig and there was a huge ant in my mouth crawling around... SO I bought a anti ant chalk that you draw lines and they wont pass the lines... its gypsy stuff I guess.

So this week I have really tried really hard to put the things I learned in the conference en practica. I feel like I've grown a ton in these last 2 months. I know I've gotten fatter, but I've grown a lot spiritually which is awesome. My companion has also had a huge change and he now talks and jokes around and teaches awesome, which makes me super happy. Cool to see the change in someone happen so fast! I hope this last month with him will be our best month and we can continue to grow and become better everyday.

I love the Lord and feel so blessed to be a member of the church. I know its true because I feel it every time I follow the right paths and do the right thing. Every time I listen to conference the spirit testifies to me that we have a prophet hoy en dia and that if we follow what he says we will have eternal life and live with our families forever.

Week # 66, Week #32 in Coacalco

So conference was amazing!
Heard so serious respuestas from the apostles and prophet: Uchtdorf is the funniest ever haha.
I know what I need to do when I get home. Elder Hollands talk really hit me hard, and so did all the talks on family and marriage. I just feel like that is getting beatin into my thick skull lately.
 I am pretty hyped to be a father someday. I am going to try my very hardest to be the best father I can be. First I gotta buy a dog though, I learned in the conference that there are tiny steps we need to take before we take a giant step, like marriage haha. 

We had a bunch of investigators go to church and thanks to "Gracias a que el vive" we have found tons of new investigators. I know that God puts people into my path constantly if i am willing to obey. I want God to have complete confidence in me. If God needs an errand ran, I want him to know that Elder Rodabough is willing to run it. 
I have been focusing on doing more service lately and we have 3 service projects set up for this week which is sick! I'm loving the mission, I feel like I have grown more in my last 10 months on my mission than I have in any other time in my life put together. I have a testimony of my own and I know that Christ lives. 

Great week and loving every mintue of it.
