This week was good. We found a lot of new people to work with and that's great. It's always good to have a good amount in the teaching pool. The sad thing is we only had 1 in church and Enzo the joven (young man) who had fecha (baptism date) for the 13th didn't come to church because he went to Salto with his Dad. We did have 1 in church which was a miracle.
We found a family this week and the daughter is the one that came to church. The others couldn't because they washed their shoes and it rained, and since no one here has dryers they had no shoes, but they are going to go this next week.
We really have a lot of investigators the only thing that faults (lacks) is the church (attendance), it's not hard to get them to go it's just to get them to go constantly. They go once and then after they don't come. We're praying a lot that they can all come and we're are doing all we can to help them to come. We are focusing on "Establishing Zion" tomorrow in District Meeting and how were are all going to have success this week, so that there are no "poor among us" Also about diligence and how we need to remind the investigators of the church and their date for baptism every charla (discussion).
Biggest news is that my comp is sick, that's the main reason why I wrote so late, because we had to take turns going to cyber while one stayed with my comp in the house. He's got some kind of flu that's been going around. He's coughing a lot and he's having a hard time breathing. If you could keep him in your prayers so that he can get better, would be great.
Well, Lizzy asked me about a great experience and I forgot to answer her there so here it is:
We went to the house of Soledad and Gabriela and Agustin some investigators and we had lesson with Gabriela and Agustin. Gabriela told us about how she had received an answer to her prayer and she now knew that what we were teaching was true. She was super excited and participated more in the lesson. She was super excited to come to church, but in the end couldn't come because she got the flu that's been going around as well. I'm am 100% sure that she'll come to church next week though and that in a short amount of time will be in white with her family.
I know that this gospel is true and that it blesses our lives. I actually was also listening to Elder Holland's talk this morning also and I really love it. especially the end,
"Honestly acknowledge your questions and your concerns, but first and forever fan the flame of your faith, because all things are possible to them that believe."
Love you and hope you have a great week!
