Thank you for the emails this week! Jaime! sounds like life is going great, I´m so happy for you. Dad, I like the poem. Mom, thank you for the updates every week, you are great! oh and yes, I bought a coat. I am going to try and buy a camera today we will see how it goes. We are headed out to play a few games with our district and make tacos. It should be fun!
Oh before I forget, last week I was on splits with Hermana Keele, from Utah, we are teaching English classes every Saturday and so the two of us were together, while our companions were teaching a lesson. Anyway, we went to see one of her former investigators and he is really great. I had a hard time focusing on the lesson at times because this guy is Scott in 20 years. Okay no, he does not look like Scott, but he talks and walks and does the same hand gestures and the way he sits....it was weird. He answered questions, I swear, word for word like Scott would. So weird. Oh and he knows English and speaks really well so that just added to the list of things. So there is a guy who lives in Vicente Lopez who could be my brother, huh, who knew.
This has been a week of a lot of walking. We have now contacted every member in our area and all of the former investigators. We have a few appointments for this coming week and a few that sound really promising. We have an appointment tonight with a family that the other Hermanas just love, but the father just could give up smoking. Well we stopped by last week and he said that he had finally given it up! So we really feel that now is their time. We are really focusing on ways that we can find new investigators. We trying to work with the members, but there aren´t that many that live in our area. So we are especially trying to focus on receiving referrals during our lunch appointments. I am still excited to be here and I know that we are going to see the Lord work miracles in this area. I know that everything is done in his time and that if we stay faithful and keep doing the things that he asks we will see miracles and we will find the people here in our area who are ready to receive the gospel.
Okay sorry it´s short, but we are heading out and the Elder´s area is like 1 1/2 bus ride from here so we have to go early. Love you all, you are in my prayers.
