Week 78 Letter September 8, 2014

Hello Family!
Hope everything is going well back home. It’s starting to get wet down here in Minatitlan.  The rainy season has definitely begun.  I haven’t really missed being wet but it’s time to get used to it again.

We had a really busy week this week. Apart from the getting to know a new area and a new zone, we went to Villahermosa this Thursday.  We had leadership council which went really well.  We also got to go to the temple again which was a really awesome experience.  I was able to learn a lot I think it also helped the unity that Elder Peterson and I have.

Elder Peterson and I have gotten along really well so far.  It was a really fun week.  There is a lot of work to be done in this area.  The fun part is that the area is really small so most everyone know members or the missionaries.

The members here are very excited to work as well.  Most of the members have been here a long time so they know a ton of people.

We have some really good investigators already.  We met a really awesome couple this week named Carlos and Nancy.  They have some friends who are members and while they were at their house, the missionaries dropped by and taught the first lesson.  They are really interested in the church.  They are also extremely nice.  They offered us their house and food any time we need it. Even though they are extremely busy they are extremely willing to have us come by.

We also found another investigator name Mario.  We contacted him in the street and it turned out that his cousin is a missionary.  We went back later in the week and taught him about the Book of Mormon.  He is really excited to read it.  After I asked him why he thinks it would be important to read it. He said, “I think I need to read the Book of Mormon to find Salvation.” He will be a great investigator.

Thanks for all of your help and prayers

Elder Lightheart
