First Week in Padera
The Ward seems like it's a good Ward, they're friendly members, with some great families who love us a lot. However, this week was rather difficult as far as the missionary work goes. I've only met about 3 of the 20 investigators we have, because some are on vacation, and others have not been available. But we were able to find 4 new investigators and strengthen a recent convert family who are amazing converts. They were baptized 2’3 months ago, and they've given us lots of food just.
So majority of the week was spent walking under the blistering sun trying to find anyone to teach, we contacted several people in the Street and knocked tons of doors. I got a bit sun burnt and let me tell ya, it ain't easy to go day by day without a real set appointment to visit, lots of time outside on your feet walking around. But it's all good, Elder Reyes and I both want to baptize a lot, 6 this change, so I know something good Will happen. They've recently baptized several in the área, but we need to find several new investigators to be able to baptize more. Things are going well, Reyes and I get along quite well, and the zone seems to be improving right along.
