June 27 Post

Well the good news is that my companion is healthy again! It was a pretty crazy week, but a lot of the members helped us out doing divisions. We were still able to meet our goal for lessons with member because the members helped us out so much. This week we are planning on finding a lot of new golden investigators. We are having to drop a lot of our investigators more quickly than normal. My companion and i are being really direct with our investigators and because the result is being able to figure out if they are ready to progress now or if we need to let them go for a while. 

We were hoping for a lot of investigators this last Sunday, but the only one that was able to go was Veronica. She is progressing really well now! She joined the young women’s choir in the ward and loves it! There was a seminary graduation yesterday and the choir sang in it. She came all by herself to be able to sing with the choir! When an investigator comes to the church building by themselves it means that they are ready for baptism! We are planning on baptizing her the 09 or 16th of July. 

We are going to try baptize another one of our investigators named Carlos the 23rd of July. Carlos has been a really great investigator! He has just had problems getting to church!... He lived in Phoenix Arizona for a while and went to our church 3 times with his uncle. We read some of the Book of Mormon with him and he felt the spirit really strongly! He has the testimony so now he just needs to get to church and it’s a done deal(: He really wants to meet his goal of the 23rd of July. 

The atonement helped me a lot throughout this week. I could feel the spirit as i read these words from Dieter F Uchtdorf’s last general conference talk, "The joyous news of the gospel is this: because of the eternal plan of happiness provided by our loving Heavenly Father and through the infinite sacrifice of Jesus the Christ, we can not only be redeemed from our fallen state and restored to purity, but we can also transcend mortal imagination and become heirs of eternal life and partakers of God’s indescribable glory". The gospel and Christ’s atonement can help us get out of the stressful situations in our lives. The atonement helped me have a joyful week! 

The mission is the best! My companion and I are really happy to be here and we will work hard so that the missionaries in our zone can feel the same! 

Have a great and joyful week!
