Hola mis siguentes de blog. (Thats supposed to mean hi blog followers, but I don't think it does.)
So probably one of the Coolest things this week is that we had 7 less actives and one investigator attend church. The total count in Sacrament meeting was 65, which is also super high for our branch. Our branch has a goal of reaching 100 active members by the end of this year. That equals about 20 new members and 20 reactivated members. Elder May and I are doing everything we can to get those baptisms we need. Most of our branch members are recent converents or recently recent converts, within the last 5 years.
This week we've seen a lot of both sad and amazing things happen. We saw 2 people being or having already gotten evicted, one other almost evicted, and so many people in our branch or investigators that don't have work. One of members told us his story about how his wife and kids are in Mexico, he hasn't seen them for over 15 years, and he doesn't have job right now. Yet, this Hermano has such an amazing testimony of the Gospel. It's amazing what people go through to live here, and understand the gospel supports them.
Other amazing things include that we're finding more people to teach. One of our investigators told us she really wanted to get an answer from God if the church was true, and another one is starting to really understand what we're teaching. Even with all the bad happening, there is so much good to see.
Also a miracle, my abilitly to speak spanish has jumped like crazy. No, I'm still not fluent, but I'm lot better than I was 3 weeks ago.
I know that this is the Lord's work, His Church, his Gospel.
I hope you all have an amazing week!
