Hollllllaaaaaa mi familia y amigos! wow i cant believe its been another week it flew by!! i think im learning more each day how to not only make my mission successful, but also make it fly by! so this week on wednesday we were not having a great day and nobody really wanted to talk and it was like 9:15 so we were about to head back to the pension. but we stopped at a house and yelled HALO and some guy answered the door. and his house was right next to a pretty busy street so it was hard to communicate. but i go hey we`re missionaries and all that good stuff, can we share a message with you? and he goes sorry we worship satan in this house. well i didnt hear that part so i reply with alright we can come back another day, what day works for you? thats when the door got slammed. my comp was laughing pretty hard the whole way home. the language is really starting to come along i noticed huge improvements this week. i still feel like i can speak better than i can understand haha so thats a little problem.so i got my first baptismal date this week! but she didnt attend church.. haha so now its going to be a lot harder. we have a lot more investigators though we worked really hard to last two weeks to just knock a whole lot of doors and contact a whole lot of people. now were going to start having more lessons which will be nice. also ive been teaching this ten year old named juan carlos english for like 30 min twice a week and his mom has never let the missionaries share a message with them. we shared two lessons about the plan of salvation with them this week and watched a video about elder uchtdorf explaining the reality of who we are! it was great. were hoping to invite them to church this week. its really tough getting people to church. we invite, them commit, we stop by their house before church, they say theyre coming, and then nobody comes. its super frustrating. we had one investigator out of like 6 show up. oh and also our crazy philosopher investigator is not so much an investigator anymore. last week when he left in the middle of gospel doctrine we were wondering what happened. well on saturday we figured out he left because we were talking about tithes and he now believes the church is an american scheme to gain power in other countries. i feel bad for people that just refuse to open their eyes sometimes. because we know he had been searching the internet for anti mormon material all week. that stuff is pure poison.
oh my gosh empire of the sun is playing right now. im gonna lose my mind. haha bye love you.
