Dec 8th, No Subject
This week went pretty well! We had a lot of good lessons this week with our investigators. We couldnt meet with Ivan and Paula this week. They had a lot of problems that kept getting in the way, like one of their kids had to go to the hospital and things like that. He loves reading the gospel principle book though. He pretty much read it in one week. We should be visiting him Tuesday.
We also met with the family Pastrana. Marcelo met with sister missionaries about 5 years ago and learned a lot about the church then but then they moved and lost contact with them. During that time he gained a testimony of the church and was ready for baptism. The only thing is his wife is reallllly catholic. He told us that he wont get baptized without his wife and kid getting baptized with him. It is super hard to meet with his wife though. Hopefully we can figure out what to do to help her.
Also we had a really good lesson with Jose Feliciano. He told us that he gained a testimony of Jose Smith (I dont know why they call Joseph Smith Jose Smith but then they call Joseph F. Smith, Joseph F. Smith, I dont know, its weird) and a testimony of the Book of Mormon. He said he would go to church the next day but he didnt go. We went to visit him and he said he was afraid they were going to call him and infront of everybody and he would have to talk. He did go to the Christmas Devotional last night. We couldnt stay but we took him there and had a member sit with him. I think he liked it a lot.
There is also going to be a big activity the 23rd of December. The South mission and North are going to get together in the Center of Santa Cruz in a place called Plaza Principal and we are going to sing. Its going to be a super fun time. Today we are having a multi zone activity. We are going to get together and play soccer.
Thats all that happened this week. Love you guys.
