Week 81 Letter September 29, 2014

Hello Again!
Here comes the rainy month! It has been raining basically everyday of this past week.  So we have officially entered the rainy seasons.  It hasn’t been too big of deal though and we haven’t gotten too wet. 

Best part of the week was that Jonathan got baptized! It was a really great service.  His mom Gladys was really happy.  She has definitely changed as well in this process.  Jonathan’s baptism was just what his family needed to get back active in the ward.

We also had a really good ward activity this week in which we gave the class we invited a less active young man to help us out with the activity.  We had Briham (the less active) carry two empty 20 liter jugs. Then whoever wanted a cookie had to put a cup of water in.  We compared it to Christ suffering so that we could have eternal life.  Christ had to pay for anyone and everyone who wanted wants or will want eternal life.  It was a great way to show to everyone the importance of his role in the plan of salvation.  It had a big impact on Briham.  HE came to church on Sunday and signed up for the YSA convention.  It was great to see that we could help him out. 

The President came to Minatitlan this week to interviews with the zone.  They went really well. He focused a lot on always finding new investigators.  It was really good for our zone I thought. I also got to talk with the President for a while about how to work in this zone. I have really enjoyed working with President Morales as a zone leader and I hope to continue doing so.

Our English class went really well this week.  We had 20 people come. A lot better than the 8 from last week.  It was great to see so many people interested and I hope it keeps improving.  We won’t have it this upcoming week for General Conference, but we are really excited for conference as well.

Well, it looks like we should be having a pretty busy week.  We will probably go to Villahermosa on Wednesday and give the zone class on Friday and then with the conference we will be pretty packed.  It will be a great week though.

Until Next Week,
Elder Lightheart

P.S. You know you’re a missionary when while asleep, you ask your companion, “How are we going to find more investigators?”
