Jun 13, 2011

hola familia, how are you all? chris I got your letter! thanks so much. yes, the graph paper was so great. this week flew by. well, last monday seems like so long ago, but at the same time, I can’t believe it is already p day again and the end of another cambio. time is weird in the mission. sometimes long, but incredibly rapido.
this week we sadly had to drop a few investigators. that is so hard for me. I love them so much, but they just aren’t progressing. we were unsure what to do, but then hemana knapp read something from her journal from the mtc that one of her leaders said that satan will put pèople in your path that are nice to you but won’t progress just to waste your time. he wants us to waste time. we realized that we needed to make some changes and find new people to teach.  yesterday we found 2 familias. it was so great. hardly ever can we find  and teach the husband and wife at the same time. it was a huge blessing. we will see what happens with them. this week we also found an antiguo investigador, Nestor. he is 18 years old, lives with his dad who is a member but inactive and his 2 hermanitos. the missionaries taught him about a year ago I think. he came to church yesterday in a suit, and seemed really happy and excited. we are way excited to teach him. maybe this is his time. I hope we can find more new investigators. the ones we have showed so many signs of progressing. on the brink, but have kind of slowed down. we are really trying to pray to know what we need to teach them to help them really understand how the gospel applies to them individually. Alejandra right now is being kind of hesitant about her baptism. she often lets her fear get in the way. it is interesting how carlos, who really wasnt ready, was so eager to be baptized. but she is so ready but fearful. please have her in your prayers.
on saturday, R invited us to have lunch at his house. we were a bit hesitant because we always find weird stuff in the drinks he gives us. haha. we ate asado. and blood sausage. ya. it was soooo gross. I just tried to eat it really fast and hide how gross it was. but he was so excited to give it to us. some things they eat are so weird. always something to make us laugh afterwards. like when I tripped and almost fell into the lap of some man eating pizza. I have never tripped so many times in my life. anyways, love you all so much. I love love being a misisonary and am so thankful for this opportunity to serve the lord.
