Yesterday was ward conference, the ward reached it´s goal of having 140 people there! It was a busy week handing out invites and visiting lesser actives. After church, a member brought us a referral. It was a family of a dad, mom, and daughter. They are what we call “elect” because they have been prepared to receive the gospel. They have been searching forever for the true church of God. The dad said they have investigated every church except the LDS church. I´m sure Satan was doing his part in keeping it that way, but not for long!! They had tons of questions and are very interested. We have a return date for tomorrow.
One thing I have learned is that missionary work takes patience. There are always disappointments when people aren´t home, don´t come to church, or have to be dropped. But no effort is wasted.
The language is still coming along. I can pretty much say whatever I need to say. I´m still working on the understanding part, which is a lot harder. I have to focus super hard to understand if people are talking fast because it´s super easy to zone out. hahaToday we are in the next town visiting with the other Americans in our zone. They are all super trunky and about to go home, and then there´s me… haha. Anyway, thanks for everything and for your prayers!!
