Week 54--A Pretty Good Conclusion
Hey family and friends. This week was one of those weeks that started out awesome then kinda headed south toward the end of the week. Every appointment from- either we had to cancel, they had to cancel, or we showed up and they weren't there. It was a little frustrating, but we had Oralia, Delfino, Hilario and his daughter Carolina at church . That made it a pretty good conclusion.
Oh, fun story. So there was an awesome, awesome family that lived in my area in Fletcher that just moved to my area in Arroyo. The family consists of a former bishop, current 2nd counselor in bishopric, Primary pres, Stake YW counselor, and Relief society teacher. They are an amazing family that we really need in Arroyo. They want to keep going to Fletcher (and Fletcher may need them) but we'll see what happens. I mentioned that we are on special assignment from Stake President to make our area into a branch, right? We could really use that family to make that all happen.
I don't have much new, exciting news to share from this past week. We have picked up some investigators that could be pretty cool and those 4 that came to church are progressing well. All but Carolina have a baptismal date.
Insight from personal study to close...This one comes from Elder Maxwell paraphrasing Ether, “If I am sufficiently humble, which personal weakness could now become a strength?” I'm currently working at being more content when I see progress in myself rather than focusing on the overwhelming distance I yet have until I reach perfection. I had a really cool conversation with President this week on the topic.
Now to end on a light note, this week we had a Christmas party as a mission. The main part of the party was a talent show. Elder Febbo, Elder Buehner, and I sang "Puedo ser tu misionero," a song that we wrote stealing the melody from "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias. If an Elder sends the video home, it may soon be on Youtube getting spread virally. Haha. It was fun.
Have a fantastic week!
