Week 34 (Nopal)

Hey so changes were this last week and I got a new comp. Elder Castillo from Honduras. He is pretty cool but also a bit weird, but he can sing so that’s good.

This week was pretty crappy. Literally everyone here that I teach who wants to get baptized, can’t because of things I can’t control. It’s starting to get frustrating, because they progress so well, and then they have a spouse who refuses to get married with them. Or a guy who is so close to getting baptized but we haven’t had a lesson with him in 3 weeks because he works in San Salvador and only comes to his house the weekends if that.

But I don’t know, I feel like I am working hard, and trying to be exactly obedient but I don’t know. It’s hard over here haha. However we did find a couple of pretty positive people who I feel could progress and they are actually married, which is so rare for this country and we are going to really try and focus on finding a bunch of people this week to basically start over from the beginning, again. But that’s alright.

General Conference is next week which I feel like we just had conference. Um this week nothing really that interesting happened. We found a person who has been inactive for more than 15 years and she wants us to print off her patriarch blessing. She was really cool and her husband who is catholic is really cool too, so  hopefully her blessing says something about her returning to the church and bringing her husband too. We talked about the sealing power and she said her mom and her sister were recently sealed in the temple, and how she really likes that idea, but the Catholics teach that we won’t be as families in heaven. So we will try to bring them to conference.

Um we also met a mom who is really cool and we had a really good lesson with her. She is catholic but doesn’t really go, and  that’s kind of rare. Um we basically said goodbye to everyone in the beginning of the week which was sad. I wasn’t really expecting to have changes so that was surprising. Um I don’t know what else to say. Basically the same old same old.
