The work keeps growing!

Man this was a great week this week!! We had a great time here in Huguito, and are working really hard!! Its a little bit hard being the only companionship in a ward, because all of the responsibility of finding and baptizing is on your shoulders, but Lately the Ward has been helping us a lot this week. But I have to say that this was a very very successful week this week. We had our Annual ward conference this week and so the members were working so hard this week. But Saturday we had an activity called "SiĆ³n al Rescate" (Zion to the rescue) and we had huge sucsess. Basically what we did, we met up as members and Missionaries (we got the zone to come) in the morning and we basically Blitz the area. we just split off into little groups and we visit everyone that we could! It was really awesome because we had 102 people in church!! It was the Highest that its been for a long long time! So shout out to member work!! and among the the 102 people in church, there were 6 investigators!! WE had Eduardo Ozuna who is planning on being Baptized in 2 weeks and a part family member that we found this week with 3 kids that need to be baptized! They are called the Familia Sotelo and the investigators are named Ana who is 13, Matias who is 10 and Lucas who is 9! So with them thats 4 investigators, we had a member bring her little sister who is named Angie, shes 12 and she seems pretty interested in the Church. The last investigator ins named Alberto. And he Kinda Wondered in. He is like the neighborhood drunk, but he told us that he wanted to change so we were able to get his direction. He seems Pretty sincere in what he says, so we will be working with him to overcome his addiction. So It was pretty awesome having such a great showing by members and by investigators.

We had a stellar lesson with Victor. He was kinda dis animated because he is struggling. its been hard on him overcoming everything. So we shared Mosiah 3:19 and we focused on the ways to overcome the natural man. We talked about how we have to do things that invite the Spirit. Like reading the scriptures and Praying and going to church. and then we talked a lot about the Atonement and it was incredible!! He seemed so determined to whats good and he seems soo so convinced that this is true. He has testified of it many many times, its just a struggle with him because we have these spectacular lessons and then he seems so so good, and he just doesn't do some things. but we will keep working with him. He is Incredible. I Love him like a Brother. I really do!!

I love you all!!
