Week 79 Letter September 15, 2014

Happy Monday Everyone!
Hope you all had a great week.  We had another really busy week here in Minatitlan.  It got a little rainy but we were still able to get a lot done.

Well, the best news is that we have a baptism planned for September! We found an investigator named Jonathan (Good name, right?).  He is the son of a less active sister and he is super excited to be baptized.  We have a date set with him for the 27th of September. It will be really good for his family who hasn’t been going to church for a long time.  He also has a littler sister who just turned 8 that we are going to try and baptize as well.

We also have been working hard with an investigator named Claudio. He has been going to church for a while and really like it but has had a hard time believing in the prophet. So this week we went by and just explained to him clearly the doctrine. By the end he was able to understand the need to have a prophet. Hopefully he will be baptized soon as well.

The best part of the week was the ward conference we had this week.  All of the members got really excited and worried really hard this week to invite people to come to church their hard work definitely showed on Sunday the attendance had been hovering around 50-70 people each Sunday. Pretty much all year it was around that number. This week the ward had the highest attendance of the entire year and 107 people came to church. It was great to see the chapel full. We also had six investigators come to church.  That is what the work of salvation is all about.

Love you all,

Elder Lightheart
