Ups and Downs

Buenas tardes a todos, this week was on average alright. We had some really good moments and some lows as well. That's how it is with missionary work I guess. 

So on Tuesday we had a great day! In total we had 8 lessons and 4 lessons with investigators with members present. Two others with less active members and two more lessons with member families. It was one of the best days I've had in this area. That day we also put two baptismal dates with two investigators, Ivonne and Elouisa. Elouisa is the husband of a less active member named Romaio. It was a really great lesson and the spirit was strong. Its so great to be able to see people with that desire to change, repent and be baptized.

So after Tuesday we had some slower days. Wednesday, we had the District Meetings which went well, I`m very grateful for our District Leaders. They work well with their districts and help them out a lot. Wednesday we only have 3 lessons, a few with members and only one with investigators. Thursday we had Weekly Planning, and only could find members in thier houses. Friday was good, we had the Meeting with President and all of the Zone Leaders. It was good. As in every meeting with president I learn a ton about how I can improve as a missionary and a leader. We also talked about a fair amount of doctine. It was kind of funny, he told everyone that we had half an hour for questions about whatever and people started asking about marriage. There were a few missionaries there close to ending their mission haha.

Saturday was pretty good. We had a good amount of lessons but none with investigators. One of our less actives is looking pretty bad this week as well. He`s been in and out of the Hospital and we had to carry him into his house one day as he came back from the hospital. Sunday was good but we didn't have any investigators attend church. That was kind of bummer after putting a few baptismal dates and being really excited for some of our investigators. However, a few didn't attend because one of our investigators, Veronica, went to the hospital with beginnings of appendicitis.

Yup, we didn't have the best week this time, but not the worst either. We`re excited to improve in this week and work harder. Its also hard to believe that it`s already May. Crazy how fast time goes. Next year in this month I`ll be going home! Kind of a scary thought. Well, everyone have a good week. This week we will be finding out about changes, and its very likely that me or my companion will have changes. I think that he is going to train but we`ll see.
