Week 74

Things are going well here.  My companion and I have been able to work well.  He's a hard worker.  I enjoy working with him.  I like the confidence he has in his calling and the message of the gospel.  Unfortunately, many investigators have been having problems with work.  We've had to move the baptisms back a couple of weeks.  We are also working to get some investigators motivated to go to church.  One investigator is doing great fighting against his addiction of alcohol, and just got a job after years of unemployment.  We do short visits with him daily.  The biggest struggle for the investigators here is attending church because of work. We've found several people who are interested in the Church this week.  We're hoping all goes well!

This week went well.  Thank you for all my birthday wishes! We have been super busy finding new people to teach.  My companion Elder Oliveira got transferred.  My new companion is Elder Rodriguez from Guatemala.  More to come next week!

Week 72

Everything is going well. We are planning on having a baptism this Saturday for M. She is a great investigator and will surely be a great addition to the branch.

This past week has been busy. We didn't have much time to work in the area. We did divisions. I went and was able to visit the missionaries and members there. We spent a lot of time helping the district get set up for the conference, especially with the chairs!

My companion leaves for Brazil this Saturday. We had a good time working together as companions. I wish I could have learned more Portuguese haha.

I received the great news that the M. family from my old area were married and baptized. I am very happy for them and proud of them. Wish I could have been there, but that's not a big deal.

Week 70

Everything here is going well.  The activity for the obra misional from the district was a success.  We did three workshops.  My companion and I with the president of the Elder's Quorum taught how to start a conversation about the gospel.  

We  have been finding many new people to teach, but unfortunately, not too many are interested.  We will keep working to find new investigators with the help of the branch leaders and members.

We will be doing a fundraiser with S. and his wife, so that they can be married.  They are super pilas and have progressed a lot.
