Over the Hump

This week I learned a lot. First off I hit my half way mark this week. Crazy! Time is flying by, I can't even believe it. Hermana Phillips and I made pinatas last P-day so we could celebrate but than we ended up liking them too much to hit and destroy them haha.

The work this week was pretty slow we dropped just about all of our investigators because they weren't progressing. We decided it was time to get some more investigators that were prepared for the message that we share. But after that point the work was still soooooo slow. About halfway through the week I was feeling a little down and one night Hermana Phillips and I were planning and decided that we had to try something different. Sometimes as missionaries when we knock doors we get into the same habits, "Hi we're the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We're in the area today offering service and sharing a message about Jesus Christ. Is there anything we can do for you family today?" But when we do that, we're not really letting the spirit guide us so that we can touch people personally and help them to hear what their Heavenly Father wants.
I tried to have a more positive attitude and to try to connect with the people I met on a person basis. To try and figure out what it was that Heavenly Father needed for them to hear. Any slowly we started seeing more people who were willing to talk to us.

One cool experience happened on 8:30 on Saturday night. Our plans had fallen through but a random house that we've driven by before kept popping into Hermana Phillip's head so we decided to head over to go knock it before the night was over. We did and it was a Hispanic family. We have been praying a trying to find a family to teach for a while and we know that God lead us to this family, hopefully they can progress and feel the truthfulness of our message. If not, at least we're planting seeds.

My favorite thing of the week was the New Member Fireside that was last night. Hearing the contersion stories of different people is so amazing and it really helps me see how much people NEED this gospel in their lives. Our Stake President talked at it and he is a convert to the church. He said that when he was baptized he told the missionaries he would only do it on 2 conditions: 1) That he would never have to have a calling and 2)That he would never have to give a talk. Hahahah I guess those didn't end up working out too well for him. Oh, also, some missionaries that served down in Mt Si came up to us and told us how Marco is doing amazing and how he goes out with the missionaries to help them teach 3 to 4 times a week. Made my life. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!

Con Amor,
