Dear Family and Friends:
Wow what a week!! First of all, on Tuesday, we found some great people, they are from the Pentecostal Church and are really receptive. However, we have not been able to teach the head of the house, the Dad. The mother, Silvia, is really receptive but the first time that we shared with them, the grandma was sharing with us and she is Catholic and was not happy with the teachings of the baptism. However, they still have not asked God if what we are sharing is true. I don’t understand why it is so hard for the people to pray and ask God questions.
On Wednesday, we found a nice, really active Catholic family which took us by surprise, Gloria, papa and mama and grandkid, Alexajador. We have to go in and teach about the prayer a lot better because the grandma only knows Padre Nuestro and in the first lesson she offered that to finish. It was kinda funny.
On Thursday, we had divisions with the Zone Leaders and I had my first baptismal interview, everything went well.
The new area is good. The ward has an average attendance of about 50 members and this week three inactive families, that we visited, came and we had an attendance of 73 people. If the attendance is not raised, the ward will be cut down to a branch.
It is awesome to see the changes that take place in the lives of the people when they accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that through Him we as children can do all things which are necessary for the salvation of mankind.
Remember, repentance is a continual thing. Every day it is required to kneel down before our Maker and beg for Mercy looking toward works of Justice.
Love you all!
