Hola mi familia!
This week has been great. We started working with a part member family in the last week or so and they are so awesome. The parents are both members, but they have a 9 almost 10 year old daughter who’s not baptized. We didn’t even know they were a part member family until a couple days ago when we finally got the different lists from the ward clerk. But they have said without us saying anything that they really need to get back to church and that they want to work on their daughter getting baptized. We are going over tomorrow for dinner and a family home evening. We are really excited to continue working with them.
Javier and his friend misael are doing great. Misael came to church without Javier and without us inviting him. So we set a return appointment with him so hopefully we will see some good progress with him in the next weeks. We are still working on helping Javier see he really is ready to be baptized. But we don’t want to force him into anything. But we are basically with him almost every day and he absolutely loves the Book of Mormon. So he’s still our main focus and he’s doing great.
This week I was kinda feeling like we really need to start working hard with our members, because there’s no way there will be retention with new converts here with the way things are. So we want to start strengthening and helping out members be more devoted. Elder Murdock and I have had a lot of good ideas about it and also district meeting yesterday was perfect for it. So we’re starting tonight and hope to see success from it.
