We had a fantastic week last week and a lot of success! Everyone in my district is super young but we are all really excited to work and we are all seeing our areas progress. The "loco lunes" idea was a success! Hmna. Samudio and Beatty won it but Elder Escobar and I as well as Elder Glover and Elder Brimhall are planning on dethroning them this week.
Elder Escobar and I have been finding some awesome families to teach lately as well. When I was with Elder Niño we were teaching this super awesome Colombian family but we stopped teaching them because they weren't progressing and kept delaying their marriage. But this past week we felt that we should go visit them so we did and it was awesome! Only the mom was their with her 5 kids but they were happy to have us there after such a long time. Their oldest kid is only 13 years old but all of them are excited to have us there. We felt really good in the lesson and are going to see if they are finally ready to accept the gospel in its fulness.
We also had a lot of success with the less actives that we are teaching. A lot came to church yesterday and are excited to come back to the church. One of the best parts of the mission is helping less actives come back to Christ because they have already been baptized and have made sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father. It feels really good to help the less actives.
Well, that is about all for this week! ¡Que tengan una semana exitosa!
