Week 38: Hidden Blessings

San Rafael

This week has been good. going to get straight to it.

Monday after p-day was on the streets, waiting for people to pass by to talk to. we got a few contacts at least!

Tuesday we had various meetings. Our district meeting, then later a meeting with our ward mission leader. That night we had 3 lessons with member. with Juan, Hno. Cruz, and Nancy. muy bueno. Juan basically knows its true but its only because he believes all of the members testimonies. So was going to be baptized this week, but theres a stake conference, so we have to wait another week đŸ˜¦ Hno cruz is a good guy. He’s old so its hard for him to understand, but he loves going to church. Nancy is a really good investigator. We went with a member and taught her how she can receive and feel her answer of the book of mormon. it was a great day.

Wednesday we only had one lesson. With hno cruz again. We did service for him and cleared a bunch of branches and after taught him, like the last time. we taught him about the sabbath day and committed him to coming to church again.

thursday and friday went well, but a little slow. a lot of things planned, but a lot of things that fell through. we taught juan the 10 commandments. but he’s still not reading. when he told us that I  shouted a little  “NOOOOO” he hasn’t been reading at all. after the rest of our plans fell through for the day, but Elder neto and I were able to talk to more people at least.

Saturday we had another lesson with hno cruz. it did not go well, we talked about baptism again, but he doesnt think he needs to be baptized again. After explaining it and inviting numerous times, he still didnt accept. So we left and don’t know what we are going to do now. The other lesson was with another dude from Peru. he was a bible basher so it was pretty hard. he’s a cool guy though.

Sunday 1 investigator came to church! Brisa, the daughter of a less active family were teaching. If their family reactivates in the church it will lead her to baptism! She has a date for 2 weeks!

a week full of contacting! But it was a good week. And the members have been helping a ton! I love it. We were bothering them as much as we can without offending them, and they’ve been helping us out so much.

So apparently the jazz are doing good…..so many hidden blessing from mission service

love you all!
