We had so many great plans this week but they didn't really turn out that great. Almost everything was falling through... including the posole. But we met a lot of new people and I'm super excited for this coming week. This area has been really slow for a very long time. The Branch has actually been shrinking from people moving out instead of growing. But Elder Blake and I are both willing to work hard. We understand that this isn't our work and the Lord is blessing us with a lot of miracles.
We are teaching him, his mom, and his two daughters Jasmine(9) and Nadia(8). Oscar's girlfriend, who lives in Mexico, is a member of the Church. She helps a lot. Jasmine and Nadia are super smart and they talk a lot. They all want to get baptized but we haven't been able to get them a ride to church yet. They should be coming this week.
Daniel, Ishmael, Manual, Alfredo, and Arturo
Five guys living in the same apartment working construction. But, surprisingly the apartment is pretty clean and the dishes were done and they are all pretty well kept as well. They listen to us very intently. Ishmael is a little skeptical, but he knows a lot about religion and has a lot of good questions. I like that because it makes for good conversations. Daniel is just a super good guy that seems to understand well. Manual, he doesn't say anything. Alfredo is more emotional. He got a little choked up after we taught the Restoration because his whole family is Catholic and he felt like it took away from that. Arturo seems like that guy that everyone else follows. Super fun to teach all of them.
Photos:1) This area is the first area I have been in where we've shared the apartment with another companionship. It is crazy, but a lot of fun. Meet Elder Norlund and Elder Parkin.
2-3) Elder Zwick of the Seventy came. Met up with Elder Taufa. He goes home soon.
