Well, another great week has passed by! I know I say something like that every week but I say it because it is true!
I hope that you could all set some goals for this 2016 and that you were all able to set a game plan to reach those goals. Something that Ive learned on my mission and from Predicad mi Evangelio (Preach my Gospel) is how important it really is to set good goals that push you to reach your full potential. There is a real difference between those that never set goals and those that are continually setting goals. It is impossible to reach our full potential and develop talents if we never set goals.
This month my district and I have a goal to have 6 baptisms and rescue 6 less actives. We have a ton of potential and were super excited to work this month! Yesterday our investigator Juana was interviewed as well as her son Jairo. Her other son, Manuel, wasn't able to come but he is going to be interviewed this week. It has been great being able to work with them. They are so humble. I've never known anyone else like them. They are progressing really quickly too. Elder Sandoval and I had a cool experience a week ago when we taught Juana about tithing and fasting. She really doesn't have anything but she is excited to be able to pay tithing when she works. She has a lot of faith. All of the members love her and her 3 kids.
Were also starting off this month super good with the less actives that were teaching. About 6 months ago, President Erickson told us that when it comes to rescuing less actives we should be focusing on the ex-missionaries that have gone inactive. So right now we are teaching a brother, his name is Jose, and his wife and son, Luz and Daniel. They have started to come to church again and starting to remember why the church and gospel is so important in their lives. It is great being able to see the Atonement work in peoples lives.
Well, that is all for this week! Feliz año nuevo! (Happy New Year!)
