Well, this week was really great. Our area's going a little slow but we are working on finding more people. We got to visit with Juan, our recent convert, and he's doing really good. In a month or two he's probably moving to France with his family. That's disappointing, but I could be gone to a new area. Also, we are possibly going to the temple with him to do baptisms on the 11th of November so that could be cool.
Friday we went and visited the Belgium family. They always feed us. Their neighbors couldn't come so that was disappointing, but we had a really good lesson with them, talking about the importance of our covenants and keeping them. It was interesting how they wanted to do better and they knew they needed to. It was kind of like they were just waiting for an invitation. So, they committed to read and pray. They told me they weren't going to church and that was hard, but I told them it would bless them if they did go. They drove us home and we got home kind of late, which is bad. We are working on that. The visits with them are important.
Also, we visited with the Faus family. They are doing pretty good. The dad is inactive after baptizing the son, Maximo, back in August after I first got here. The family still comes. I wanted to talk to them about keeping covenants, too, but we ran out of time.
Saturday, we visited with our investigator, Maria. She's moving to a pueblo near Toledo. Her boyfriend (who we thought was her husband) is kicking her out. We have to pass her on to other missionaries and hopefully she can meet with them more. That would be good for her.
Sunday, we went to pick up our investigator, Kenya. She said she would go to church with us if we came and picked her up. She didn't answer. Then right as we were ringing her doorbell, we got a text from the Belgium family, saying they were on their way to church. I got really excited. They are my favorite people to visit – they are really cool. They came to church but they felt like it wasn't very reverent, at least during the sacrament, and people are talking the whole time. That's part of the reason why they haven't been coming. I think its mainly children and parents trying to shush them. They joined after their children were grown, so they may not quite understand that. So, we will keep trying to get them to come. I was so happy to see them!
So, that was my week. Today as a zone we did some pumpkin carving and had some pumpkin cookies and pizza. The zone leaders treated us all – they took a big hit to their wallets. Now we are going to play some foot ball and play some games. It should be a fun day.
Love you all and loved hearing from you. See you all next week!
