Week 31

I am doing well!  This week, we worked hard and are starting to see investigators progress spiritually.
We have started to focus more on teaching with the Book of Mormon.  It's been helping a lot! 

I'm working on my teaching skills.  I want to be able to teach more clearly and concisely with more love so the people can feel that the message is true and understand it.  

We did two service projects; we helped a family move and helped chop down a tree.  It was fun.  

We have a new investigator, R.  She is very nice and always has good questions.  Le desafiamos para el bautismo y lo aceptó con tal de que reciba una respuesta de sus oraciones.  (We challenged him be baptized, and he accepted it provided that he receives an answer to his prayers.) We read 3 Nefi 11 with her, and she really enjoyed it.  

We contacted a man a week ago and came back yesterday and started to talk with him.  He thoroughly read the pamphlet  multiple times.  We shared the Book of Mormon with him in front of the house that he works at.  He was very interested and accepted it.  He told us he would read it.  

We taught the mother of a joven investigator that we have.  We shared the Book of Mormon with her, and she plans on reading it and praying about it.  We hope their family can get baptized. 

We have another investigator, F, who wants to get baptized.  She has been to church twice and reads the Book of Mormon.  We are trying to teach her boyfriend, but he's never home.  We're praying and working to see how we can help her and her family to be happier and more united through the gospel.  

We have another investigator, J, who has gone to church for a year now.  He has a testimony, understands the doctrine well (even better than many members), but his mom won't give him permission.  We have invited them to read the Book of Mormon and pray about baptism, but they haven't done it.  I'm a little bit lost on what to do.  He is so close to getting baptized.  With a little faith, I know we will be able to help him accomplish it!

In February, I hope that some of these investigators can be baptized and make covenants with their Heavenly Father.  That would be super macizo.
