MONDAY, today we played volleyball and dodgeball and ate hamburgers. Rico!!!! haha. After that we taught Gianpierre the recent convert less active haha, and it went great. He is excited to go back to church. Now that school has started again. Then we talked to Prudencio an investIgator who is older and progresses slowly. We need to talk to his other family members first.
TUESDAY, today we contacted a reference and we ended up teaching him! He is 17. Named Bryan. It was cool! We will see how it goes with him. Then we taught Manual Carrion and it was awesome because we applied a trip that he went on to the gospel. It was sweet! Then we also helped a family that is about to be separated, but they are doing a lot better now.
WEDNESDAY, this morning, we finally found some old investigators who want to start back up with the lessons! How cool is that! Then we found another one who also wants to have a change of heart let’s just say. Coolio!!! New old people!!!! Yes!!! Then we also taught Sergio who is progressing at his own pace, but he is progressing. I might not be able to see a lot of these people get baptized but I am happy and grateful to be a part of their conversion process.
THURSDAY, today we taught a less active family but it was a little difficult because we didnt have a whole lot of confidence with them and when we asked questions, they didnt answer them,.... I felt bad. We want to help them but we cant figure out how.
FRIDAY, today was a little rough. We had a lot of people fall through but at the same time we did make a lot of appointments! We talked to Daisy today and she is ready and everything, but we cant seem to find her dad when he is home to talk to him about the permission... we will see. Sigh......
SATURDAY, today on the other hand was great! We had a lot of good lessons. We taught investigators, some new less actives and at the same time we contacted a lot! Very successful and we also were able to find new investigators!!! Oh i love it! It is nice when patience pays off.
SUNDAY, I gave a talk. I talked about the importance of reading our scriptures daily, especially the Book of Mormon. I love giving talks. Ha-ha. I used to not like it a lot but now I love it! Ha-ha. Then we helped out with an activity that night and we were also able to give a couple blessings. That is always a neat experience… to be able to use the power from heaven, according to the faith that they have. Awesome.
Well that is my week for ya. I am so grateful to be here. I love it. I learn every day and it’s the best. The best two years. I love you all and hope that you have a great next week! love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
