This week we did divisions with Arcos and Heroes. I went to both of their areas with Elder Smith and Palma on different days to meet and help their investigators, and it went well. Their both solid missionaries and are doing their best, but the divisions always seem to help have more motivation or learn new strategies of doing things from others. With Smith, we contacted a whopping 40, and then with Palma, we did 50 contacts. I love being able to meet new people and travel around a bit, it’s awesome.
This week, we also traveled out to Lomas again for a baptismal interview, which she passed and was baptized last Saturday, and from what we heard the baptism was a total success. The members gave her a photo right then and there of her baptism, a flower, and some good scriptures to study in hard times. It always helps to have a good ward to support the new converts.
Right now, we have 3 people preparing to be baptized next Saturday for the multi zone Noche Blanca. They’re Gabriel, Esperanza, and Alma, and we sure hope that all will go well for them. It’s a big step, and they all seem a little worried to take it, even though they already know it’s what they’re supposed to do. So we hope they all three can be baptized in the Noche Blanca.
Things are going well in the area, we just need to focus a bit more on finding new investigators. That’s the biggest funnel to baptisms, 'cuz the more we find, the more chance there is to find those who are actually prepared to be baptized.
Here's a clip of the EFY singing we did. (Note from Mom: If anyone knows how to add an audio file to this blog, let me know, I haven't been able to figure it out :)
HAPPY PIONEER DAY!!!
