Week 58--We're Seeing It Happen!
(Monday, January 13, 2014)
Sorry, this will be a short one.
So, this week was insanely awesome! We had a lot of stuff fit together like a puzzle. We have 8 investigators with baptismal dates. That's about double my previous high. So much cool stuff is happening.
The Contreras family came to church and loved it! We introduced her to Rocio, a returning less active. We are also teaching Rocio's son, Pablo.
The Garcias are worrying us a bit. We love them so much that our focus has faded a little. They might be getting a little too converted to us, so we are going to have a week of refocus. We had a Mormon Message night with the kids that are about our age. We watched, "Earthly Father, Heavenly Father", "The Will of God", "Mountains to Climb", and "Men's Hearts Shall Fail Them." It was super powerful and hit Carolina (18) the most. Cool stuff. Hilario (father) still had to work, but he said that his boss was going to work something out.
We found out that a returning less active's records have been lost, so we'll be teaching and baptizing her to recreate her records. Her husband is a convert of a year, so it will be good to review everything with him.
This upcoming week is transfers. Elder Febbo and I both want to stay together in the area, but we kinda doubt that will happen. There are a few factors around us that make us think it's a bit more likely than usual, but still.
Thanks for all the love and support. All the talk about the Hastening from the Prophets is true. We're seeing it happen! For those familiar with missionary lingo, we hit, then exceeded, all the standards of excellence this past week. Neither Elder Febbo nor I have ever done that. It's awesome!
Love and kindness,
PS Thought for the day. I was reading in the Book of Mormon and I was thinking, "man, wouldn't it be cool to have more?" Then the thought jumped into my head, "Wait a second, you have the words of modern prophets and how are you treating that?" I have found some very specific help and received very specific revelation as I have read this last Conference report. So now the question, How are you treating the words of the modern prophets? Have an awesome week!
