Week 49: 4th of July + Hot Dogs!

Villa Mercedes

Happy 4th!

Nothing unusual for me this fourth of July. It felt like a normal day. But we did make hot dogs 🙂

This was a challenging week, it seemed like all of our work wasn’t converting into progress or numbers. But i know it caused me to humble myself and rely on the lord even more. I grew so much.

We started out playing soccer on monday with the members and investigators, after pday was over, we went and tryied contacting some of our new investigators we had found and both of them dropped investigting and told us they weren’t interested any more… other than that a lot of walking knocking and talking 🙂

Tuesday highlight was a lesson we had with a family who is relatives with the 1st counselor of our ward. They are a golden family, they just don’t realize it yet! They are still scared to commit themselves to baptism-because they haven’t received their answer yet. Super funny and nice people.

ON wednesday we got to meet our new mission president President Pansacchi! They are super cool and are dedicated to help the mission grow. We had a little conference with them where we met them.

Thursday we visited that familia oliva again, and also Rodrigo Ponce,  the boyfriend of one of the members in our ward. The problem is they arent married, but luckily rodrigo went to deal with the marraige papers. It looks like he has desires to be baptized. A member came with us, and it was a spirit filled lesson! They have desires to become an eternal family

Friday was a tough day. We had a district meeting, and in the evening all of our plans we had didn’t work out. So, we decided to visit a few members to see if we could receive references. Although we didn’t receive references, we planted them a desire for the missionary work and are looking for oppurtunities now to share the gospel

Saturday we went to justo daract and did divisions with the branch president and another member in his ward. I went with our branch president and we hit our investigators and all of the less active members. a total of like 7-8 families in a few hours. Super productive. that was the first time I’ve ever done a division in the mission.

Nobody came to church on sunday sadly. And we havent been able to meet with dario. these past few days his been sick so he didn’t come to church. a few of the investigators in justo daract went, however! that night after the hard week we decided to commit ourselves in finding someone to teach. and after knocking various doors, we got into a less active member house (we didnt know them) with the non-member husband. He agreed to receiving the lessons and we were able to teach him! TENDER MERCY! That was the way to end the week.

I love the gospel! So many blessings come from living it. I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!

Con Cariño,

Elder Skonnard
