Heads up again... I can't send pictures.. I'll just keep taking them and shoe them to everyone is a couple months.
Well this week was busy and crazy but it was good. I think what I learned the most this week is that we can't keep doing the things we have been doing because the Lord expects so much more from us. Like honestly I felt like we had worked so hard this week but was disappointed when we only had one investigator at church. Our Branch is made up of about 250 members with usually 50 that go to church. This area has only been open for about 2 years so everything is fresh and untouched. The branch relies on us pretty heavily because they still do n't really know what they are doing. EXAMPLE: Sunday we got to church and they hadn't started yet and it was already 9 am and then they wanted us to speak in sacrament, and teach both hours of class.. So yeah the main reason we are doing it is so that we can have a good relationships with them. They help out a lot they just need more experience.
It rained SO much this week. I'll try and paint a picture of how the rain works.. So we were going to one of our areas that is kind of far away so we have to ride a little ghetto bus which basically just cruises down the mountain super slowly trying to pic up new passengers and once you get to where you need to get off you say LUGAR LANG and and they stop the bus and you get off. So we got off basically in the middle of no where and then we needed to go through the sugar cane field to get to the houses but when we stepped off the bus it was like we had stepped under a waterfall.. We got pounded! But because we have to do so much more in this area we decided to just work through the rain, we figured even more people would take us in if we were soaking wet! haha
We were able to go to a few Zone Conferences this week and it was nice to not have to train. The trainings were good and it was nice to see a bunch of different missionaries.
We are looking forward to having our first baptism this Saturday and we are pretty excited because it has been a while but we should be good here on out. We are gong to do something crazy this week and try and teach 100 lessons. We just figure that if we do that much we will have to do so many lessons where we just talk to someone on the street and teach them right there meaning we would have so many new investigators. We also challenged about 10 companionships throughout the mission to try and do 75 lessons this week I guess FYI the mission average here for lessons a week is about 30 so it's going to be a big push for them. And us!
I love you all we are going to go crazy this week!
