Week 73 - Madison Tennessee


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.

Love y’all!

Week 71 - Madison Tennessee


Hola mi familia!

This week has been great. I’ll start off with Javier and his progress. We taught him the word of wisdom this past Thursday and it went rather well. He asked at the end of the lesson that the next time we came over, if we could bring more info on their commandment and maybe some of the stories about it. So we taught him about Daniel and king nebakenezur. About how he kept the covenant of the Jews and how he was blessed with the gift of knowledge and dream interpreting. It really connected well with him, and he committed to living it, and asked for help to stop drinking. He’s really so awesome and i love him so much. He told us that his friend wants to start learning as well, and that tomorrow he will be in the lesson with us.we also helped him skype his son yesterday, so that helped build some more trust.

Not much else happened this week. Just a lot of service and food. I love the holidays haha.

Love y’all!
