Just going to get it out of the way...hit the "5 months to go" mark...ya
To start off the week, we did divisions in San Jorge. Elder Duarte has chikungunya and was still recovering so I stayed in the house with him and my comp went to work so that the area didn´t lose as much progress. I finished reading 3 Nefi until Éter. I have 2 chapters to go and I actually plan on finishing tonight. I was able to talk a lot with Elder Duarte. He is from Paraguay and he knows 2 languages...Spanish and _____. I forgot the name but everyone knows it there. Look it up on Wikipedia.
We saw a lot more spiritual progress with the investigators this week. For example, Pablo and Dania are really starting to feel the spirit during the lessons even though they still have problems with fulfilling commitments. We put a fecha bautismal for the as they have to get married as well.
We also saw a lot of progress with G and W. G basically said he received an answer that these things are true and he wants to progress towards baptism. He also wants to marry his girlfriend W (they don´t live together...that´s a first) and we finished teaching the Plan of Salvation with temples and eternal marriage. They really enjoyed it. W leaves for Yoro for a month but we are inviting her to go to church there and we will continue teaching G here.
On Saturday we went to San Pedro Sula in the morning. My comp went to get an MRI on his knee. I was in the room with him and had "blast from the past" moments as I had received one a little under 5 years ago...4 years and 8ish months!!!! Time flies. We got back and had some good lessons with F who wanted to give us back the Libro de Mormon but we convinced him to keep reading it with no other commitments. We had the good lesson with G and W and then a great lesson with the familia M.
We had a good turnout at church. 111 asistencia and 5 investigators and many menos activos. No one with fechas bautismales went, but we are working on that problem. After, we went to the stake center in Chamelecon to plan some capacitations with the high counsilor in charge of missionary work. We got back and had a really good lesson with a new family that we found the day before...familia Pineda Rivera. There are 7 future baptisms! We taught the first half of plan of salvation...pre-earth life through the atonement. A lot of work to go, but we will do all we can and then depend on the Lord to work the miracles.
Well, that´s all I have today. I´ll talk to you guys next week!
