This week has been a crazy fast week! It all started with Tuesday when we had a leader counsel meeting with the president and other leaders from Xela. We learned a lot of things to help our zones.
Then on Thursday we got to go to the temple!! It is always a great highlight and spiritual experience. After that, we went to a nearby chapel and ate lunch with the president and his wife. Then we had a zone conference! I gave a talk about setting goals and making plans to achieve these goals. We all know that we want to baptize and find new investigators, but if we dont have plans to do it, it will never get done. We have a lot of new missionaries in the zone so we need to teach more simple things like that, but I think it really helps them! Then my companion gave a talk about following the spirit and serving the Lord, and our mission president gave a cool talk about the temple. It went well!
On Saturday and Sunday we had to stay in the house because of all the partying for their independence day which is on the 15th of September (today). Just walking around San Juan today, we have seen so many drunk people. I couldn't even judge if there were more dogs sleeping on the side of the streets or drunk people!
Sunday was my first time going to church with the branch. There were 42 people that showed up! We taught sunday school and priesthood haha! It was fun. There is a lot of work to be done in the branch, but I can see so much potential there! We plan on making a calender of activities and even doctrine classes, or how to be a member of the church classes to help activate and excite the members! We think that the branch needs to have more unity to be more successful! I'm super excited for the chance I have to help the Lord with this little branch! I love San Juan!
