This week was pretty cool! We went to Tampico for the training meeting of the new missionaries and we stayed with the Assistants and that was fun talking to two of my old companions. We had a good talk. I really did love the training it was really great. President Jordan talked about conversions and it was really awesome. The first elder I trained, Elder Chico, is training as well in this generation and he was asked to give his testimony in the meeting and it was super powerful. I was so very glad that I was given the chance to be his first companion.
My companion that I have right now is really good and he is ready to train! Which would be super awesome. I did a division this week with the area of Praderas. The missionary is an Elder from Atlanta, Georgia. It actually was a super division. That area is struggling and before with our companions we set the goal of three new people to teach by the end of the day. And the whole day we were searching for people to teach we contacted the whole world and just did everything that we could to find these 3 new investigators, and we found three new people to teach. At 8:30pm we went to visit a member and there she had invited four new investigator we had a great lesson and then we went home. We ended the day with seven new investigators. I was thinking about how this all came to be and I know that Heavenly Father saw that we were trying very hard to find them that after we had done all that we could he blessed us with four more. We had to do our part then he steps in and helps. It was a cool reminder experience that we had.
A lot of missionaries came and stayed with us this week. On Saturday night we had six elders in the house. It was a full house and that was the second day in a row that I had sleep on the tile floor with only one blanket. So, I’d say that I'm a little tired. This week we had a good turnout at church, we had seven investigators come to church which is always a solid turn out.
One of the members this week bought me a cake and gave us amazing food for my birthday. They were a month late, but hey it’s the thought that counts; right? Our zone is a bomb! We are on fire! We are doing awesome! I'm so proud of the zone. Our light got cut off again.... dang-it. Well hey, at least I'm used to it now.
This is the last week of the change. We are going work very hard this week and we are going to see blessings poured out of the heavens! We have five baptisms planned for this next month coming up.
Well, I have to go. Hope all is well with everyone.
Take care. BE HAPPY.
