Doctrine and Covenants: 35

13 Wherefore, I call upon the aweak things of the world, those who are bunlearned and despised, to thresh the cnations by the power of my dSpirit;

14 And their arm shall be my arm, and I will be their ashield and their buckler; and I will gird up their loins, and they shall fight manfully for me; and their benemies shall be under their feet; and I will let cfall the dsword in their behalf, and by the efire of mine indignation will I preserve them.

15 And the apoor and the bmeek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be clooking forth for the time of my coming, for it is dnigh at hand—

A Progressing Area

Things are still going good here, we are still finding new people to teach, the investigators that we have are starting to progress, and even the members are getting excited about the work and are helping else, things are going great!
So this last week we were able to find 7 new investigators, the only problem that we have with all them is that generally they tell us that they can only visit with us once a week. But the good news is that they accept us =) On Tuesday and Wednesday we had... normal days. Then on Thursday we did divisions, I stayed in my area with the district leader. The main thing that happened that day is that we went to a contact's house. I had met him the bus and he agreed to meet with us. His name is Michael. So we went there and he talked to us about how he had gone to world competitions for cheerleading, he is also starting a company as a systems engineer, so yeah, he's pretty cool and smart. We met him and thought, "He's golden", and then we started talking.He asked us some questions that we couldn't answer, it was hard and made us think a lot. So we'll be invtiting some members to go and help us with future visits. He's very intellectual and so he made some really good questions. We also had a good day on Saturday. We were able to meet up with several investigators, and we recieved two references, both went to church yesterday! We were also to place a baptismal date with Alejandra (we've only taught her 3 times) and she has accepted to do all that she needs to to prepare to be baptized. So it was a good day.
Now for the more interesting things of the week: 
1) Elections are coming here and so one of the presidential candidates visited our area, walking around shaking hands with the people and taking pictures. So like good missionaries we took advantage, I went to take a picture with him and we talked with him about the church, he said that he had many mormon friends, many that are bishops and that we are good people. We took the picture with our phone so I can't upload it right now.

2) I got attacked by a virus and couldn't really do anything yesterday... it was so fun...
Anyways, all is going good here, we're happy and working and we are seeing some fruits. Thanks for all your support!
