Week 3 already!

What a short week! I am saying it more and more but time is accelerating! You need to enjoy life as it goes by because it goes by too fast. 

This week was a good one, we´re still in a finding phase and starting to work with the new investigators to see if they are going to progress. Tuesday we had a day full of planning for the zone meeting we had on Wednesday and we also had another meeting with the Stake President Delgado and Pres. Nelson. It was a good meeting, we had 20 baptisms in the stake last month so it was great to see that growth and be able to discuss what we did to obtain it and what we can do to improve even more. That night we had a lesson with one of our new investigators who´s named Socorro and we found out that she´s actually a member as well haha. So we´re now teaching a less active instead of an investigator haha. It was a little bit of a surprise but we´re going to start working on reactivating her. 

August Zone Meeting
On Wednesday we had our Zone Meeting which went well, we were able to put some goals as a zone and talk about how we can leave commitments with more power. It was a good meeting and I learned a lot from the missionaries in the zone. The greatest thing about the district and zone meetings that we have is that we have the opportunity to receive revelation on how to improve. 

After the meeting we had interchanges with Elder Concha and Elder Sarver, I stayed in Tule with Elder Sarver and we had a good day. We had some really interesting lessons. One of our investigators recently had two of her nephews die in a car accident, so we asked her if we could go to share a message with her family members. She told us yes and when we went we sat down with one of the mothers of the deceased and before we started the lesson more and more of their family came. When we started the lesson there were about 15-20 people! We had a good lesson, it was a little scattered because we talked a little about the spirit world, and then one of the mothers started asking questions about whether her son would be able to be with God if he wasn't baptized so we talked a little about Temples as well. It was a new experience for me to teach so many in one lesson. It was good though.

Thursday and Friday went well also, we had the opportunity to teach a new family that seems interested as well as Yazmin who right now is the only investigator that is progressing. She´s doing really well. On Saturday we had to go to Puebla to the Hospital with my companion. He has some knee problems so they injected something in one of his knees to help him out I guess. I swear, I've never been really sick in the mission but I´m very familiar with the Hospitals! Sunday we had church, and taught that new family again, and we had a really good lesson. They´re really open and committed to read and pray to know if this message is true.
Today we had a really fun District activity in which we played some fun games. Yup, so this week is shaping up to be another good one, we´re expecting some good new investigators from some references and we´re going to put some baptismal dates! Everyone have a good week!
