IM A DEAD MAN WALKIN IN #CIVILWARS
How’s it goin? Whuddup? How’s the turkey? People here don’t celebrate Thanksgiving so that’s a total bummer =( BUT I will have about 70 more after this one, I hope =)
This week was a rough one but a good one! We tried doin’ things a little differently and it just didn’t go quite as planned, but . . . That’s pretty dang normal on the Mission . . . Haha. Lots of plans, and they rarely come through!! We tried searching out less-actives with a list a member gave us and that was an epic fail . . . People are always changing the number of their house or just painting over it so it’s almost impossible to find addresses . . . Super Legit. I LOVE IT. #JK But really, that didn’t go well. We actually had a TON of difficulties this week in finding new people. Up until last night we had marked no Baptisms and made no new investigators. It was terrible!!! Just lots of weird reasons why things didn’t go quite as planned, but life goes on because . . .
We Baptized Thayna, Neide and Gilmara this last week!!!! We weren’t really sure how it was all going to play out because they travel a little bit . . . But they all had the desire to be Baptized together this week so we got it done! It was a HUGE blessing. The Lord is seriously helpin’ us out SO much here. It’s absolutely incredible!!!
We were really nervous because we didn’t have anyone set to go to church on Sunday so we prayed a ton for some sort of miracle and . . . Whaddya know! A member brought her friend to church! We are set up to visit him this next week. His name his Victor and he’s 20. Super chill and down to Earth. SUCH A HUGE BLESSING.
These days are days I have to work hard to remember why my last time in this area was difficult. I complained a lot last time. I was weak and tired. The Lord put me here, I believe, because he wants me to remember what I learned and don’t let the same stuff get me down a second time. Pretty interesting but I love it. The Lord works in so many strange ways and I learn SO much every day =)
Our Zone Baptized seven people this last week!!! That put us at the last week of the month with 21 Baptisms! We broke the record for the last year but last September or October this Zone Baptized 35, so . . . That’s the goal to beat. Our months are based on Sundays, so this next week counts as December already. December will have 5 weeks so I’m excited to see what miracles our Zone can pull out. We can do it! Who’s on the Lords side who!!?!?!?!? TABULEIRO!!!
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!! Be good, be safe. We have a meeting on Wednesday, so I am hoping to receive lots of letters! LOVE YOU!!!!
