Week 26

This week was kind of hard. Almost every one of our appointments this week fell through and only one of the people that said they were going to go to church actually went. Nevertheless, we are still working hard and trying to keep our animos high (stay encouraged) so that we can find lots of new people who will progress. Right now we are in the process of enlarging our banco de familias so we can find the people that are being prepared and focus on them.

I love the new emphasis on asking references to everyone we teach. We have seen a change when we do this, and have had a lot more references. We are in the process of finding them and teaching them now! A lot of them have a lot of potencial. The biggest struggle is finding them after the first visit.

But we have had some success with one of our investigators, Gerson Hildago. It´s taken the work of previous sisters, and lots of patience, but we have seen some awesome progress with him. Every time we see him he is a bit different and more converted. We will sacar la fecha (set a date) this week with him for sure!

Week 25

So not much to say this week. We are working super hard to find new people. We had to stop teaching a lot of people because they just weren’t progressing and we are trying to find a lot of new people here. We had a reference from our bishop about a less active woman and her spouse.. no se como se dice en ingles… no son casados {they aren’t married}. We started teaching him and oh man talk about a hard heart but they went to church this week and we know that he already knows it’s true but just hasn’t admitted it yet to himself. He wants to feel what we feel, is what he says. That he can talk with the passion that we have when we bear our testimonies, but were trying to help him understand that faith starts small and with time and dedication to prayer, reading the scriptures, and going to church he can feel the same way too. We got their information and they committed to get married at the end of the month!!!!!! Pray so that his papers can get here in time. He’s from the selva {jungle} (oh yeah iquitos!!) and the last time the missionaries tried to get them married they didn’t ever come.

My comp is awesome and I love that there are trees here! Talk to you all later!

First time I saw grass in my mission!! San Felipe is awesome!! It has trees too!!!!
