this week flew by like no other!! the time out here seems to go by fast and fast every week! we are having a lot of success and have found lots of new people to teach, also something i realized that is my english is getting really really bad, i dont know why, but i am really trying to get a grip on it, it hard when you talk spanish all day long!!
this week, we had about 200+ people in church! pretty insane! we are having success with the less actives, and our retencion with our converts that are new was really good, 11/12 came to church!! oh, happy anniversary mom and dad!! we found 9 more people to teach, 5 of are referencias de los miembros!! the members are the key to having success as a misionero!
also, the new elder in the district, elder flake is so tall!! but he is from AZ and it was so cool to talk about muddin and all that cool stuff, az people are so cool :) oh! so maximo, yeah studd!! he got called as the new ward mission leader in our barrio so we are super stoked about that, he is going to help us a lot, and we now have someone who actually likes their calling! always magnify your calling to the best of your ability, only YOU are called to that posicion and it is because the lord wants to help you learn something!
there is still no snow here, have no idea what is going on with the weather, but we are just going to keep working hard! it was cool to see all the missionaries on tuesday at transfers, i saw my old comp elder de leon, he is doing good, and i realized the my soa and i are the only companionship that has stayed together for 4 transfers in a long time! my comp is going to be training soon, i know it!! he is a powerhouse!
as for more bautismos, we got the 3 fransiscos preparing, yuriana and jorgito, isaias, and possibly a couple other new ones. THe lord is just pouring out blessings and it is so cool to be a part of it! i love this work, i know that it is true, and that as a missionary i have been able to grow by serving others, and i know that is the part most important because we are instrumentos en las manos del senor! hope everything is good back in AZ and wherever you are!! i love you and thank you for your prayers and support!!
