May 4, 2015

Alright, so it is finally starting to get cold here in San Juan! Like really, really cold! I am wearing a sweater and coat now :).  Apparently, it’s going to get colder! Well, this week has really been just a lot of door knocking and contacting, because my awesome comp has already baptized all the investigators before I got here, so we have to search for more. We went and did service this week for the Bolivian family! They are building a cute little brick and mud house. We brought the zone leaders and a few members to help. It was great, and she treated us with yummy sandwiches and soft drinks :).
I had my first district meeting this week as district leader! It was super fun :).  I was a little nervous, but I think I am getting used to it, haha. We did a fun activity and I taught a bit. We set a goal as a district to find three new investigators per companionship. If we had the faith, hope, and love, we would achieve this goal. Now, a week later, we basically achieved our goal!! In total, as a district, we found 13 investigators during this week! That was a pretty neat miracle :)!

We have been praying and fasting for a miracle this past week, because we needed more work. So we picked out a street which we have never been on, and decided to knock every single door. We got rejected a lot; some potentials here and there, but then we knocked at the door of this really wealthy looking house. To be honest, I didn’t really think they would want anything to do with us (because sadly, that’s how it is). But we knocked anyway. A girl of about 11 years old opened the door and we introduced ourselves. I felt a little awkward introducing ourselves to such a young girl. To make it more awkward, her dad came out. I thought he was going to reject us and tell us to move on. But instead, he opened the gate and greeted us with a hug! Haha, so cool!  We talked for a while, and he thought it was so cool how we are from different countries. We talked about the restoration of the Church and our purpose as missionaries. He thought that was so great! He has had a lot of bad experiences with the his religion and thinks they were too prideful. Long story short, we have a visit with them this week and we are going to make them some brownies and have fun! Turns out he is the supervisor for a super huge soda brand here. These were my “roses” for this week.
I love you all!
