Happy New Years from Guatemala! It sounds like you guys had a great New Years. And even though our New Years was at 9:30 it was still super fun! We went over to the bishop's house and had dinner, and then after we watched them light off fireworks.
This week we worked our behinds off!!! After using my watch to count my steps, I averaged 20,000 steps a day, walking about 10 miles a day, and burning about 1000 calories walking! I'd like to see you guys try to beat that haha!!! No, but we really did have a lot of success this week. We found 7 new investigators and taught around 30 lessons which is A LOT! It was super cool.
There was this really neat family, whose mom had been praying to find a church where her and her kids would fit in. Her son who is 15 had been going to her evengelico church and he was wondering, is this really the true church.. haha!!! It was really cool to teach them because our church, in my opinion is the STRONGEST FAMILY CENTERED CHURCH! So we have been teaching them a lot about the plan of salvation and families and temples, and her son really liked the fact that Joseph Smith was 14 years old when he started to wonder about churches. Turns out that their family even went on the Quetzaltenango temple tour, and one of their really good friends is a member in our ward, so we will be working a lot with them!
Another really great investigator who is progressing is named Allerim! We found her as we were working a little bit with her father. When we had found her she had been reading the Book of Mormon, and had a lot of questions, which we were happy to answer! She has been really exercising her faith and she even quit drinking coffee which was her addiction. She couldn't come to church last week because her child was very sick, but we gave him a blessing and the next day he was better.
All of you guys should help us by praying for these investigators! Well that's pretty much all that happened this week. I'm dead tired from all the work haha! But I definitly love this work, and I can't believe that next week I will have 6 months on the mish! I hope you guys have a great week! Les Amo.
