18 Lessons !!!!!!!

July 10, 2013

Well this week we had some good success and you would never believe it! 18 lessons!!! We smashed my all time record honestly don’t know how it happened but we worked hard and didn’t give up. We dropped some more people and lost some others to the Evangelist church below our own apartment haha, but in all we are still doing good. We started a family home evening in the church Thursday nights for anyone to come. It is designed for investigators and less actives, but we invite lots of members to fellowship the people who come and make them feel welcome! It seems to be a huge hit after the first attempt and we should have a good turnout again tomorrow. We also teach an English class here right before family night and the other missionaries just got a new investigator out of it. When I got here we had only 2 members coming to English class and now we have 10 non members+3 members coming so it has grown a bit! It’s been fun and I hope that we can utilize it a little more for effective finding.

Well the heat is kicking in, but I don’t think we have seen the worst, Agosto is usually the hottest ( I forgot how to spell Agust in English). But it’s not too bad. So anyway, I think more satisfying than doing missionary work as a missionary is doing missionary work as a member, because these people are the people who we love and care about. Sure I love and care about my investigators, but after 6 weeks I’m gone forever and it’s up to the members to care and watch over them and make sure that they progress in the gospel. We really all do have the missionary tag on. It was put on when we were baptized and became testimonies of Jesus Christ, and took upon ourselves to follow him. Miracles happen every day here! Even if they are just small ones or big ones it’s still a miracle, and the Lord is doing his work.

Love you all!
