Week of 3/31/14

Hey everybody! This week we had a pretty good week. We found a couple of new people to teach (almost all of them women, which is the wierd thing about this area). Last week I guess I didn`t have time to talk about the people that we are teaching. I told you all that two were going to be baptized, but the baptism didn`t go through. Their names are Verenice and Corina, and she had to visit her sick mother that lives a little bit far away, then we had another lesson with them and we don`t feel like there ready yet anyways.

We have one other investigator, Iraìs, who wants to get baptized... but she needs to get married or separated from her "roommate" first, and she can`t decide which one she wants to do. Her roommate doesn`t want to talk to us. Elena and David (who are both over the age of 25 years old) are Iraìs`s children who we are also teaching, and they seem like pretty good investigators, but we haven`t been able to teach them much yet because they are relatively new ivestigators.

Antonio, a 35 year old student studying to be a hair cutter. Right he is not that sure about baptism because he is waiting to recieve an answer to his prayers of whether or not this is the true church. Last week we talked to him a lot about personal revelation and how he can know for himself. So we`ll see if how it goes with him this week. And this week we found a number of new people to teach: Patricia and Jimena, a single mother living with her 11 year old daughter, and they seem pretty interested, they even want to invite their friends to listen this week; Ester, Ester, and Vianey, Mother, Daughter and niese, they understand pretty the lessons pretty well, but the mother is a unfocused talker, ever lesson that we have had with her was a little bit difficult to keep her focused. Lourdes and Jorge, mother (she actuallyhas a husband) and 14 year oldsson, and they seem awesome, but they only had a short time to talk when we found them, so we`ll see how they progress. And Teresa, who seems pretty interested. She was a referral from an active investigator (one the goes to church every single sunday but doesn`t want to get baptized).

The rainy season is about to start again. It has been raining this week every other day, and I think that in May it will start raining more, and then in June, it will rain super hard just about everyday. So that will be fun. Talking about water, today for Pday, our district and another district close by had a water baloon fight on the church yard. The water baloons ran out fast so we started filling up buckets of water and dumping them on the other missionaries. It was pretty fun, especially because it has been pretty hot lately.

Well, my time is up, I love you all so much and i hope that you enjoy the General Conference this weekend, because I know that I will. I love hearing the voice of the prophet. Luckily, I will be able to hear it in english (it isn`t as good in Spanish).

I love you all so much!

Until next week,
Elder Davis
