A Little Slow, But Off to a Good Start

Hey Everyone!

This week has been good. We’re still battling to gain the confidence of the ward leaders here. They seem to not be that interested in working with us. We had ward council this week and it wasn’t great. They just asked for our report, listened for a few minutes and then told us thank you and that we could leave now. Not a lot of coordinating going on. Anyway, it’s a bit discouraging because they have refused to give us a ward directory and we don’t know where the members live so it´s been a struggle to try to get to know them and work with them. Thankfully there are a handful of member who help us out a ton and are willing to go with us everywhere. On Wednesday in the district meeting it was kind of funny because we were going to set up a Skype link with the elders in Huichápan but the bishop’s ipad wasn’t working so we had to just call them on our cell phone and put them on speaker haha! Not the greatest but at least they were able to hear what was going on. They don’t come to the meeting every week because their area is so far away. The highlight this week was that we had 3 investigators with a baptismal date at church this week, and one other investigator also came. The 3 with a baptismal date are Demian (17 years old), Valentina (9) and Yitzhak(18). They are some kids from a less active family that lives close to us who are just barely starting to reactivate. They are super cool and have been reading the Book of Mormon and came to church this week and last week to general conference! We have been teaching with a lot of examples and object lessons and they are understanding super well! Other than that, I did a couple baptismal interviews, walked a lot, and I don´t really know what else to write. I´m getting kind of tired haha but other than that I´m doing pretty well. Love you lots and hope you have a good week!

Love,

Elder Black
