Hello all! We had an interesting week this week. Just working hard and doing our thing. Our zone is really struggling right now. After having a really successful month of August, the numbers in the whole zone have dropped a ton, and basically nobody has investigators to teach. We are going to try and whip these young guns into shape though. We are trying to teach by example, and we are going to have a baptism this week, and plan to place a ton of baptism dates this week. We are really just always super excited to get out and work. The thing is helping the other missionaries to do the same.
Our baptism this week is named Gissel. She is 16, and her mom is a convert from about 2 years ago who had been inactive. We have been working a ton with her family, and now her mom, Maria, is going to church every Sunday. We have seen a ton of improvement with Gissel as well. She used to go to parties all the time and what not, but has turned her life around. We are slowly making progress with her other family members as well. We just need to keep finding new people to teach.
Probably the funniest thing that happened this week was this: we have been teaching this guy named Julian, and we havent been able to find him lately. We saw him in the Street the other day, and when he saw us, he took off SPRINTING in the other direction. We ended up finding him again and he told us that he cant be baptized, because he has already been baptized and it would be a sin to be baptized again. We keep finding him in the Street and he will literally dive behind a parked car to avoid us hahaha. Oh well, you cant win them all.
Hope everyone has a great week this week!
