Unfortunately the families we found didn't go to church, but Zulma did, and another couple, and a lot of members went. The girl that we baptized, her mom was super inactive and now she's coming back and taking the sacrament and everything, so that's really good. And there are some other people coming back that are getting callings in the branch, so the branch is progressing. The branch president definitely knows what he's doing and he's doing a really good job; we are working pretty well together and I think we will be able to use the excitement we have to start working a little more and finding people to join the church and become converted. But Zulma is doing well.
That's cool that the family is visiting and doing well, and that Austin is getting involved in the chuch. That's great the ward is growing and that there are more people joining.
The discussions this week went really well, got people to feel the spirit and recognize it and understand what it is, have the desire to go to church, and have the desire to get baptized, but didn't go to church in the end.... so I guess we just gotta keep trying. But there is always room for improvement.
But, everything is going well, another zone split and we have 2 more companionships in the zone. So today we went out to eat and played volleyball to try and get to know each other a little bit better which was fun and tomorrow we are headed to a place called San Vicente to do splits-which is like 3 hours away. But it should be cool, there the missionary is the branch president and they are doing really well. It's really cool to see the branch progress with a missionary as branch president.
Some cool scriptures I read this week….I really like the story of the Brother of Jared in the Book of Mormon.
But thanks for updating me, and thanks for everything, and I hope everyone has a great week!! Thanks!!!!!
Love, ben !!!
