Right now Im pretty much in a trio. An Elder finished his mission 2 weeks before tranfers so his companion has been coming with us for the past week. I like having only 2 people in companionships. Lessons are really complicated with 3 elders.
This week we saw a lot of progress with silvio. He has been doing really good with the word of wisdom. We gave him a blessing about 2 weeks ago and he said ever since that blessing he hasnt had any desire to smoke. He is doing really well. He even went to church yesterday. He told us he wasnt going to be able to but he showed up. Right now, we are teaching him out of a book of 12 steps to quit addictive substances. He has been doing really well with it.
This week we also have had a lot of support with the members in our area. We have had a lot of young men coming with us for visits all day. The days that we have somebody with us, we had like 6 visit. When we dont have somebody with us we usually have about 2 or 3. For some reason when we have somebody with us, the work is a lot easier.
This week we also found 2 new people to visit. One is a menos activo. Her name is Gabriela. She became less active because of the things her friends were saying about the temples. She still has a testimony which is good. I think she will become active again really quickly. We also found a woman named Elsa. Shes about 60 and lives with her family. We are trying to meet with her whole family. We have a visit to meet with all of them Tuesday. Elsa has made a lot of progress in the 1 week that we have been visiting her.
Thats about all that happened this week.
The food is called an arepa. Its just flour, cheese, water, and salt. And then you fry it. My comp taught me how to make it.
We also had a noche de hogar this past week with el torno. That family is really cool.
Also some elder from our area had a baptism saturday. Im pretty good friends with their investigator. Hes a cool guy.
