I have 15 minutes today to write you guys because we aren't going to get to write on monday. on monday we are going to a stadium to have a fútbol tournament with the entire mission. country againts country. so the gringos against the latinos (for sure the latinos will win), and then all the countries against each other like peru, chile, argentina, central america.... so far i have heard that argentina is the best at fútbol but we will see on monday.
TOMORROW IS MOTHERS DAY!!! I am so excited! I can't wait to see and talk to you on skype! I have been looking forward to it all week. hopefully I have good internet connection and that it all works smoothly.
This week my companion and i have been a little discouraged. discouragement is the enemy to missionary work. but 2 of our investigators that are sooooo ready for baptism, that read the book of mormon, come to church every week, go to young womens activities during the week, pray every day, and have strong testimonies, told us this week that they feel like they should wait to be baptized until they are more prepared. but they still want to come to church and everything because they love it and know that it's true. i don't understand. it's frustrating. but we are working with them to realize that now is the time to act. now is the time to make the decision and act on their faith. dont procrastinate the day of your repentance. anyway keep them in your prayers because they are so ready and prepared.
On tuesday we had a zone conference with president erickson. it was so awesome!! right now there is a huge focus on all the latinos to learn english. because english is the language of the restauración. and so president erickson gave the training in english!! i loved it haha but i felt so bad for the latinos because many of them didn't understand a word. but i think that it made them excited and motivated to learn. he talked about alma chapters 17-22 and all the missionary keys we can learn from those chapters. keys to becoming better missionaries.
well thats about all for this week. i love you all and will talk to you tomorrow! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOM! i love you!
