This has been the hardest working week of my mission.
To lay the background, my companion and I are working in a branch of about 35 active members. (Active does not mean likes to work)
My companion and I recieved some ideas on what we could do to get more work done. And...
WE NOW HAVE CALLINGS IN THE BRANCH. Nice.
My companion is now the youth teacher in sunday school, and I am acting as the Branch Secretary. Woo. Go us.
Where did this trust come from, the the presidente of the branch gave us callings? We made him a pie, took it to him, sang him I am a Child of God, and left like two little bosses. Yup. We did.
And now we have tons of work to do!! And we have access to all the branch info. 😇🤗 So the work here really should pick up.
This was a crazy first week with Elder Sanchez.
On Monday I picked him up, and we went out and did some tracting.
TUESDAY we went to our district meeting two hours away in mexicali, and the we went to the Zone Leaders area for exchanges. Nice.
WEDNESDAY, we returned to our area, and got some major work done. We have just been talking to everyone to find new people to teach. We ended up doing 203 contacts this week. Woo.
THURSDAY was a great day!! Through our work to find new peole to teach, we were able to enter the house of a family of four!! We taught them about the restored gospel, and how our families can be soo blessed if we obey the commandments.
FRIDAY We did the same. Talk to every sigle person in the street.
SATURDAY WE HAD GENERAL CONFERENCE. So that was basically the best thing that could have happened. I learned that out here, the members just go to the Suday morning sesh. So it was just my comp and i in the church with the laptop. But it was nice being just us. We baught a bunch of junk food, i mean really healthy stuff, and ate it all. Mmmblech.
SUNDAY, well you know it was also conference.
I just have one comment about conference.
I dont remember who said it, but there was a talk aobut how there were like 80 people stuffed into a cabin, and they were all suffering. BUT, none of the were sad.
That has become my comps and my theme. No matter what we are doing, we will suffer, and we will suffer happily.
There is no reason for us to be un happy in our lives. I invite all of you to find the sweet joy that I have in the gospel, and to never be unhappy.
I love you all!! P.s. mom i want candy for my bday. Woo. almost 20. ew.
