This week we had our entrevistas con presidente y hermana Vasquez (interviews with President and Sister Vasquez). That day we were invited to a Thanksgiving dinner with them, but we couldn’t make it because we had an activity in the church that we were in charge of. It turned out really well. We made it a treasure hunt of the gospel of Jesus Christ that would lead to places in the church where the things take place. It was pretty cute and our investigatores who came really liked that activity. The familia Trejo came and they are pretty interested and after the activity, all the kids are more interested as well. It makes us super happy.
We are also teaching a joven ( young person) named Nelson. He is a friend of a member and started coming to church with her. From the first lesson with him he has wanted to get baptized. He has said that since coming to church and learning more about how to follow Christ, his relationship with his dad is better and that he wants to know if this is the true church. He is a really good kid and we have a lot of hope for him.
There was supposed to be a big storm this week but we didn’t get a drop. Apparently we are in cold weather now because it feels like what summer is in Utah. Thank heavens for our refrigerator. We can at least eat cold things.
Today we went to a salon to get Hermana Argumedo’s hair dyed. Now it is a little bit darker. What is really nice is that the owner is a member and it is free for the missionaries.
We have been focusing a lot on the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ this week and in this month. It is the basis for the rest of what we teach. Presidente Vasquez wants us to make it more personal for the investigatores. He wants it as if they are experiencing what Joseph Smith experienced. We have been working harder to do this for them.
Keep praying and doing what is right. Bring people to church because the missionaries can’t do it all. Investigatores who are references become members. Do your part to help the work of the lord.
I love you all and I hope that all is well. Happy Thanksgiving and I want pictures.
