Carta # 49 de 2011

It was a really uplifting

Hola familia!

Thanks for J. and J.’s new address! This is an exciting time of the year. Well, it's always an exciting time as a missionary it seems. L. still has a date for this Saturday. While we were driving yesterday Elder P. called him up because he wasn't able to make it to church because of work. Elder P. had a hard time understanding him. But, I guess L. said something about having already been baptized into the Evangelical church. So, we are going to try to see him today to help him resolve that concern so he'll be baptized this Saturday. I believe that we will be able to help him with this.

I keep forgetting to tell y'all this, but I remembered today! There is a legit member in the ward named Bro R. He is the owner of the Cancer Fund of America. Every Tuesday we do volunteer work there as a service opportunity. I have some pics that I'll be sending soon. It's a really nice place to offer service.

Each Sunday we meet with the Bishop here. He gave us a ward directory when we first arrived and we have been helping to update it. On Sundays we let the Bishop know the things we've done. We tell him if people have moved and so on. It's been a really great way to gain the trust of the Bishop here. Because we've been working on it, there have been a few less actives in our area that’ve come back to church recently. The Bishop seems really happy about that. One unique thing that we did yesterday is we received a blessing from Bishop R. That was a suggestion from Elder H. when he came to the mission a couple weeks ago. It was a really uplifting experience getting that blessing.

For this past district meeting Elder G. asked Elder R. and I to do the training. The zone leaders and the assistants were there. It was a good district meeting. Elder R. and I had a good time preparing and giving the training.

Well, that's pretty much everything this week. Hope y'all have a great week! Take care and I love y'all!
