The Gospel offers the greatest happiness achievable!

Week #74
Hey Everyone!!

Well this week didn't end up being very productive in the end but yeah some weeks are better than others!

So the first thing that happened is that we aren't going to be able to baptize Jhordy because we have to wait a little while to see if he comes to church a lot and if he really wants to be baptized and is committed to keeping the covenant that he would make, which is kind of a bummer but it makes sense! We are looking for people who are going to e converts to the church and not just numbers! So were going to wait a while to see if he keeps coming to church and everything like that!

Other than that this week we have been trying to visit some of our recent converts and some less actives and it hasn't been going very well for  us.. Every time we stopped by to visit Blanca this week she wasn't there.. Every time we tried to visit our recent converts they just weren't there.. Also we have been trying to visit lots of less actives this week and we were a little more successful in visiting the less active but still we weren't able to visit many of them and not many of the came to church this past Sunday either.. Hopefully this week will go a lot better!

This past week we were able to do some more contacts and that was cool! Now we will be praying that something comes of the contacts we have done! My comps doing really well at contacting! The hardest part of contacting is starting the contact and my comps gotten really good at that lately! Sometimes hell just walk over to the people and just start talking to them without me even realizing! Hes doing really well though! Were going to try to do a lot more contacts this week which should be fun!!

This past Sunday was our stake conference and it was pretty good i guess! Nothing too special but it was cool having the stake presidency there! The ward is doing alright but there's a lot of things that we desperately need to work on! We have to work a lot with the ward and when we don't have support of the ward we need to go out and do service and help the leaders out so that they will help us out too so well be looking for more service opportunities and well be working hard with the ward to help the out!!

We were able to do service this past week which was cool! It doesn't happen very much when you pray for service and the next day it comes barging in your door! Haha! Anyways Saturday morning we were getting ready and were right about to go eat when Hermano Jimmy, a member from the ward, can walking up the stairs and jumped into our room and asked up to help him! It was kind of cool but it kind of startled me at the same time!! Anyways so Saturday morning we went to a members house and helped them fix their roof! It was pretty fun but it was really hot!!

Anyways this week has been pretty good but were hoping that next week will be a lot better! I know that the Gospel offers the greatest happiness achievable for the people and especially for families! Love you all and God loves you too!!
