This has been a good week and yesterday was a great way to spend a P-day! Bowling! In our area we had a retention of 100% with our 22 converts so we got to go bowling with the Markhams and I also learned some things. Next week are the changes and I will be leaving my area, I will also be training again. I have a feeling I may be opening an area which would be cool but I don't know for sure.. it just sounded that way!
We have been working hard and saw a lot of investigators at church this week, including a family of a man who is reactivating and his wife who is an investigator. We also are helping a family who is active get their child registered in the country. He is 9 years old but can't be baptized because according to the country he doesn't exist. Only in La Noria. We are working hard and I want to do all I can to leave these people with strong testimonies so that this area keeps progressing like I have seen. When I got here we had an attendance of 34 people consistently, but with a lot of work and help of the spirit we have consistently had above 60 people attending this last 6 weeks with 67 this last Sunday! It has been pretty amazing this progress.
Fun Fact that I just found out. La Noria means the waterwheel. Which is weird because there is not a water wheel here now, there was but now no..
We also found another tarantula but this time we took some pictures with him and named him Golam. wahoo for our house.
I want you all to know that I know God lives and that his son Jesus Christ lives as well and they both love us so much. God blesses us if we are obedient and the best blessing I have seen is helping someone to see the light of Christ and the truthfulness of the Gospel. Have a great week!
