Progress and You Never Know What You Will Find in Honduras--A Scout Shirt From the East Coast

Well, the last week of the change went better than previous weeks. We started out the week well with several fechas bautismales, and a handful of regular desafíos bautismales. There were still some days where a lot of citas were falling, but we made the best of it. We also had a good turnout at church. 101 asistencia and 4 investigators (plus two more references/nuevos that a member brought for the seminary "graduation")...not bad. Looking at the datos right now, we had investigators coming to church así starting with week 1 and ending with week 6 - 1, 3, 1, 6, 2, 6.

Well, we didn´t have any baptisms this change. A little frustrating. I thought we would get at least 2, but the two I was hoping for (O and L) need some more time. O is still reading in the Book of Mormon to be sure it´s true. He believes it is, or at least he says he believes, but he needs more time to study it more to be sure. L seems to be losing hope. She is the mother of a recent convert who has a restaurant and has difficulties attending church. Her employee recently quit and she doesn´t trust the new worker so she has to stay and work during church. She says she likes everything we teach but she lacks something to finally keep that commitment to attend church and eventually be baptized.

However, we do have several investigators who are progressing nicely and are potential baptisms for this upcoming change. Nand Y, daughter and granddaughter of O, are very interested and understand the message of the Restoration. They are waiting for an answer.

M and C are also progressing well. C came for the second time to church this past Sunday and really enjoyed it. M can´t go because he works on Sundays at least for right now. He may get a change in schedule sometime in the near future. They were really open to all the lessons we taught this week, are beginning to pray, and accepted to live the Word of Wisdom. They still need to get married, but they know and will be making plans in the near future.

We have many others. Well, that´s all I have this week. Enjoy your Thanksgiving! I don´t believe it is celebrated here because I haven´t heard anything about it. To be honest, I actually kind of forgot about it until I read your emails haha.
