This week ALL of our investigators fell. Nobody wants to make the decisions to progress. Its super hard. On Saturday we planned an activity to teach the Plan of Salvation to our 1 person who seems really interested. We had it all planned. Everything was perfect...but...she never showed up. We called her and called her but nothing!!! Her husband wont let her listen to us. He had her phone all night, so we couldnt talk to her. Its sad. I dont understand. I was raised that if you (MOM) wanted to do something YOU could do it. and if DAD wanted HE could do it. It really sucks.
But we gotta be happy and just keep working.
On Friday we were walking in the street and one of the kids in the ward was with his friend. He was like "Hey this is Memo, my friend. He wants to listen to you guys." So we set up an appointment and the next day we taught him about babtizm. We felt we needed to teach the law of Chastity and Word of Wisdom. Turns out he is going to have a kid in a month. He is only 17. Everything is all good he just cant continue doing the dirty with his girlfriend. He understood. and he really wants to be babtized. Im so excited!!! He came to church yesterday to. and is reading the BOM! So excited!
So this week were going to focus on Referals! We have been working so hard these last few weeks but you can only knock on so many doors and have such little success. So this week were gonna work hard with the members! :)
Ugh! Elder Guerrero and I. Im learning how to DEAL with him. When he takes off his tie, he turns into a half decent guy. But when he puts that bad boy back on its robot time! Drives me crazy! Were working hard!!! Im learning a lot about diligence but its hard! For sure!
No I didnt know Corey was pregnant! Haha Thanks for telling me! Guess Ive been gone a long time!
The scripture was super great! I wrote it down. Were almost in the same part. Im in 2 nephi 26. Today I read about 25. When I finish this Book of Mormon, Im gonna send it home for Dad! It has lots of markings and stuff. Who knows if he will read it. Haha
Brad is coming to México! All my friends are in that mission from the MTC! Its the mission that is next to mine! We wont be far away. If were on the borders we could be like 20 mins away! :)
I NEED HIS EMAIL!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!
PLEASE FIND EMAILS FOR MIKE AND DANIEL!!!! JUST CALL THERE MAMAS!!!
So....I miss ya but Im doing good! Its all a part of the mish! Good and bad weeks! :) Tell Aleanna I said HI! :) Love ya Mama! Have fun at school! Jaja!!!
A note from Mom:This is what I wrote to Chad this morning along with the scripture that I sent.
So I've been thinking about you so much this week. Almost constantly. I've been reading in the book of Mormon every morning and I was reading this scripture in 2 Nephi 29:4-6. I thought of you so much that I marked it and wrote CHAD !! next to it.
"And then shall the remnant of our seed (the Nephites & Lamanites) know concerning us, how that we came out from Jerusalem, and that they are descendants of the Jews. And the gospel of Jesus Christ shall be declared among them wherefore, they shall be restored unto the knowledge of their fathers, and also to the knowledge of Jesus Christ, which was had among their fathers. And then shall they rejoice; for they shall know that it is a blessing unto them from the hand of God; and their scales of darkness shall begin to fall from their eyes; and many generations shall not pass away among then, save they shall be a pure and a delightsome people."
This is talking about your people Chad. And you're the one that's doing that for them. You are the one that is bringing them that knowledge so that they can rejoice.
