October 13, 2014


This week was pretty good! We focused a lot on finding new people to teach and getting to know a lot of the members, both active and inactive. We did a lot of door clapping and contacting referrals and so forth but we didn`t find much during the week. On Tuesday our zone had interviews with President in Castelar. Then on Thursday it rained super hard in the early morning with heavy thunder and lightning so our plans for finding new investigators that day all fell through. We walked around in the mud for about 3 or 4 hours and didn´t find anyone nor teach a lesson, but at the end of the day we started knocking doors and the first one we knocked, the husband let us in and we taught his family about the Restoration of the Church. It was a miracle. Then Friday we had a lesson with both of our investigators with baptismal dates, one of which will be baptized this Saturday and the other will be baptized on the 1st of November. We are super excited and they are awesome. Then on Saturday we played soccer in the evening with a bunch of investigators. The only thing that was that great was that not many members showed up. I guess we have to push more people to go next week.

The ward has warmed up to us very nicely and they are super excited to do family home evenings with us. In fact, we have one tonight and the family we are doing it with has invited their friends, so it will be pretty fun. If you have any ideas for fun family home evening activities or fun examples about certain principles, could you send me some because my comp and I don´t have that many.

We have not seen the Meet the Mormons video and I don´t know if we will be able to see it...

Thanks for the safety tips and prayers! They are working!

Christmas List: (in order of most importance)
New pair of proselyting shoes. Missionary Shoe would be fine

Have a great week!

This is our apartment! It is super small with two rooms and a sweet spiral staircase!

We made an American breakfast today with a part member family! We made Pancakes, eggs, bacon, and sausage. We tried to do hash browns but that failed miserably so we dumped that idea. They said it was good!
