We had a pretty good week this week. I got to know the area a little better and we are getting the members to work with us which is awesome!!! Things are going good here, it's a great time to be a missionary =)
On Tuesday we were able to go do visits with our ward mission leader, he's getting ready to go on a mission to Canada. Things went well, we found some new investigators and we had various lessons and recieved a couple references =) On Wednesday we had our district meeting and then had an average day. On Thursday we did divisions with the zone leaders. I went with Elder Petlacalco, one of my former district leaders =) We contacted a bus (one went in front and shared a message with everyone on the bus then we passed by handing out pamphlets =) And we went and had a lesson with a less active family. One of the people is really struggling with depression and when we went we both thought to share the same story that is in Mosiah 24. We shared the story and asked the sister at the end to say the prayer. In the prayer she thanked God for answering a pray of her's that morning, it was a really neat experience for us. Then later we went looking for new investigators when we both stopped and looked in a house and we could see that it was a family. We went and talked to them and they let us enter and were super interested, that was really cool too =) On Friday both me and my comp contacted buses, that was interesting =) And that night we went to a member's house, Ivon, and my comp made pupusas. And yesterday we had a good church attendance, it went up by 20 since last sunday =) And President Wilkinson went to the church to do our interviews which went very well =) And then we did divisions almost all day with a couple members. The members here are great =) So yeah, everything here is going well, I don't have any complaints =) We should also be having a baptism this week, his name is Favio. He's pretty awesome and so we're pretty excited.
That's about all for this week, we'll see ya next week, later!
Hunter did not write a letter this week, but I did hear from him. His internet connection was terrible. He is doing well and things are going well with his companion and is working hard. Hopefully he will be able to write next week.
Yep, I got changes again. I'll get to that later though.
So this last week went well. We visited Jaider and Ricardo quite a bit trying to get them ready for baptism. They passed their interviews really well, totally prepared. And the on Sunday at 8 in the morning we had their baptisms =) I baptized Jaider and my comp baptized Ricardo. I'll send pictures next week. So that was a great way to end my time in Escazú.
So I got changes which was pretty weird. I am now in Tibas. It's just about 10 minutes away from the center of San José so yep, I'm still in the city. My new comp is Elder Rodriguez from El Salvador. He has 6 months in the mission and I think he's the district leader, so it sounds like he should be a good comp =) We'll see how everything goes here but yeah, I don't have that much to write today. So I'll talk to y'all later
