Este semana fue mejor. This week was better. Its still frustrating because we don´t have that many investigators but we´ve been trying to contact investigators from the past and we´ve also contacted a bunch on the street and we´ve taught a lot of less actives. Its discouraging because the goal of the mission is to have a baptism every week but we haven´t had any and we probably won´t have any for a few weeks because we don´t have anyone that is ready. We have 3 investigadors and una familia that we are focusing on the first one is a grandma who actually contacted us the first week we were here. She is ready and wants to learn more but after our first lesson a member of her family was put in the hospital across the city for something so now she is always gone and we haven´t seen much of her. We have talked to her on the phone and she still wants it but shes just too busy right now. Hopefully this week will be better. She also has her grandkids with her alot so we hope that when they listen also they will want to be baptised and their parents will let them. The second is an old man who I think mostly wants to learn English. His English is actually really good and he taught himself. He wants me to help him learn so we gave him the pamphlets and stuff in English and Spanish so he could compare. We came back the second time and he seemed more interested but also told us he had been going to the Jehovas Witness church with some friends and feels like it would be rude to leave so quickly. I promised him if he sincerly prayed and asked which direction he should go he would recieve an answer. We´ll see how that went next time we meet with him. Its cool because We teach in spanish and he responds in English if he can, I get to carry the lesson more unlike the other lessons because understand and my companion does not haha. The third is a guy that was taking the lessons in the past before the missionaries left the area, I think his girlfriend is a member. The family is more or less a part member family. The family consists of a grandma, a bunch of random aunts and uncles off and on and then a mom dad and 5 kids. The Grandma and youngest aunt that is 16 are members but no one else is. They are pretty open to the gospel but the same people aren´t there every time its always different so that makes it kind of hard. Then we have a bunch of less active families we are trying to reactivate.The ward is fantastic. I love every family we have met. Everyone wants to feed us and help us and give us whatever we need. We are always recieving the addresses of active members because they want us to eat with them and come visit. Most are converts so thats probably part of the reason they love missionaries so much and also because they are converts- the active ones I think
Your not bad luck people are never home when they say they are supposed to be. Its good to here about la obra del Señor at home and I´ll be excited to see pictures of the house.
Love you! Hasta proximo semana. Adios
