I’m not gonna lie it was a hard week. I’m learning a lot on how to focus on the good things and not the bad. Elder Gonzalez and I are still recuperating from the sickness. Just about everything is ok but our stomachs. It’s been kind of hard because of the sickness but also because we haven’t had a lot of success with our investigators this week.
Nicolas, the young man we found last week, just got a change in his work schedule and now he doesn’t come home until 9 or 10 at night, so basically we can’t teach him. Sunday we went to pick up our 5 new investigators for church and none were awake. Only Choncita came to church, but I’m not going to complain about that, she’s so faithful, she’s really great! Also we accidentally locked our keys in the house so we had to climb on the roof and hop down and come through the back door to get them. It was just one of our adventures this week.
Like I said I’m not going to put too much emphasis on the bad, because even though this week was hard, a lot of good happened! Although a lot of the lessons fell through we found a LOT of new people to teach. Yesterday all the lessons we had were unplanned lessons because we talked with everyone! We talked with a young man who told us he met with missionaries a while ago and is "already convinced" that the church is true. We found 2 other kids that told us they’re coming to church on Sunday no matter what. We FINALLY found Alan again (not sure if you remember a lot about him) but he really wants to learn more. And Miriam and Brian, two new investigators, really loved the story of Joseph Smith as we showed them the movie, they absolutely loved it, especially Brian. He has already started reading the Book of Mormon and I think we’re going to have a lot of success with them.
Anyway, it was a hard week, but it is nice to reflect upon the good. That’s what it’s all about. I love and miss you all so much and can’t wait to talk to you on Mother’s Day!
