Teaching a Jehovah witness?

I am really good but struggling a little bit.   For some reason I'm struggling with the language the past few days, speaking and understanding.  I feel like I was doing so well with it in Rosario so I don't know what happened.  My new companion is Elder Pinedo.  He is from Mexico City. He is a really great missionary and he just barely finished his training. He is a great missionary and someday going to be a great leader. 130 people came to church last week. I am not so used to so many people.. I do miss Rosario.  My new ward is  Nueva Galicia.

The funniest thing in the world happened when I first arrived to my area. My companion said that we were going to teach a Jehovah´s Witness, and made up a story about him. We arrived at his house and he started to tell us about all of his doubts of our church. He said when we went to your church we had to be seperated from the Relief Society and the Priesthood Quorom for an hour, he said I thought your church believes in families being together and why were we seperated for an hour. He started talking about polygamy, we started teaching and testifying and saying that we are not here to argue or contend. He said I don´t want to hear lies, he grabbed my companions arm and said get out of my house and never come back. We left the house and he slammed the door, I practically took off running, I was so scared. It turns out that the (Jehovah´s Witness) is a member and played a prank on me. It was the funniest thing ever and their whole family was laughing and loved it. When Elder Pinedo leaves I get to do the same thing with my new companion. He has done this prank for years. I was warned of this member before I left for my area. This week was good.

Thanks for everything that you have done for me and for your example that you have given me.
