Workin Hard

4 de Febrero, 2013

Well, we have been working crazy hard here in Matamoros. We contact just about everybody we talk to, and many who we don't talk to. The members are starting to get a little more excited about missionary work and are starting to give us references. New investigators are coming out of the woodwork and we keep meeting all these inactive members that we never knew about. Last week, around Wednesday or Thursday, we filled up all of the remaining hours of the week with appointments. And this week, we are almost completely full until Thursday.

Mayra, a 15-year-old reference from a member, is very receptive. She accepts all that we teach her, asks us questions when she doesn't understand something, and always completes more that her commitments. She has already gone to church twice, and we set a baptismal date with her for the 16th of this month. She is very sensitive to the spirit, and has felt it many times in the lessons.

The rest of the investigators aren't progressing as well as we have been hoping. The Torres Family still has issues with baptism, and haven't gone to church in 2 weeks. We're not too sure what's going on with them. We're still trying to figure that out. We are going to visit them again this week and see what the deal is.

Lucio is also doing pretty good. He is practically a member by now. He just needs a special interview with Pres. Flores, but they still haven't told us when that will be. But after that, he's getting baptised.

We found out that the mission is going to double in size. We're gonna have like 350 missionaries here within the next few months, due to the age change announced in conference.

It's starting to get really hot here! I'm gonna have to find myself a new deodorant.

As far as stories for this week, I don't really have much. Other than a few days ago when some dude in the street randomly punched my companion in the face. He's still hurting haha.

I'm not sure if I already mentioned it or not, but the church here in Matamoros is getting remodeled because all of the members don't fit in it anymore. So meanwhile, every Sunday, we have 3 large, comfortable buses that take all of us to the nearest church in Torreón, an hour away. We have our 3 hour services there, then take the same buses back here. So it's kind of a time consuming deal here. But it gives us 2 hours to chillax on the bus ride.

Well, yet again, I gotta go. Thanks for all the support. I really need it.
