Happy Birthday today to Andrew and Grandpa Gifford! I hope that you both have marvelous days!
It was a great week. Some dumb little germs found me so I have been sick the past couple of days so hopefully it passes by quickly.
We had four investigators at church! Chayo and her kids! It was so great to see them there. Her son Bruce who is the only member of the family got into some big trouble last week so is now in Juvenile detention. Chayo knew that after that kind of week that she really needed to come to church. Big bummer is that her boyfriend moved back in so we have to work with that situation before she can get baptized.
Yoselin didn't progress very much this week :( We had a mission fast on Friday for all the investigators on date to progress to be baptized. Our mission has a lot of people on date for baptism but lately a lot of people end up not getting baptized. We had an awesome lesson with Yoselin Saturday night and then after the lesson she told us that she feels she isn't ready for baptism and feels that she won't be for a long time. Its pretty crazy how Satan works in the strangest ways. But I know with the Lord's help we will understand what we need to do to help get her back on date!
This week we got to know a lot more less actives. It is so interesting to hear all the different stories of why people leave the church. It is so important that we do the basics (reading scriptures, praying, going to church etc.) because when we stop these Satan attacks us and it’s so hard to get back up. It is crazy watching some people that are trying to get back on the right path but it’s so difficult because of how far they went down. I am so grateful for the Atonement that we can always change.
This past week we had zone training meeting. One thing that I really liked that we talked about is how we want so bad for our investigators to progress; so are we doing our part? We talked about how we need to pray sincerely and with real intent for our investigators just as we want them to pray to receive their answer of the truth.
Transfers are next week! I can't believe how fast this transfer flew by. I hope Hermana T and I get to stay together since we have only been together for about 3 weeks.
Well I love you all and hope you have a splendid week! I challenge you all to make all your prayers this week sincere and real intent. I promise you will be able to see a difference :)
Love you all!
