I feel like yesterday it was Monday... the weeks go by way to fast!
This week was great but super busy. Monday was relaxed and we went to Papa Johns for all you can eat pizza. It was delicious and we ate so much, super fun.
Tuesday we had to take a couple elders in for emergency changes and then ran around getting buses organized for the trip to the temple Thursday. We found and contracted 4 buses to take all the investigators and missionaries in San Miguel to San Salvador (a 3.5 hour bus ride) and bargained with latinos for about an hour to get the price within the budget they gave us.
Then got home that night and began planning the zone conference for the next day. It was a late but super awesome and spiritual night.
Wednesday we started out with the zone conference. It went pretty good. Everyone participated and we have some great new plans and goals as a zone! Then we ran around inviting and verifying all of our investigators and inactives for the temple trip the next day.
Thursday we woke up early and headed out for San Salvador. In our area we got 35 people to go. We all met up, mingled around the temple grounds and then went to the temple chapel for a tour. Missionaries were dressed up as Book of Mormon and bible characters and teaching principles of the gospel. Then in the cultural center there was a virtual tour of the inside of the temple and our mission president explained the purpose of the different rooms and ceremonies. It was awesome and afterwards an investigator couple told us they were going to begin trying a lot harder to keep the word of wisdom because in 1 year they want to be sealed to there kids!! Everyone had a super spiritual and fun day!
There at the temple I saw some converts and people who I had taught in other areas who ended up getting baptized. It was so cool seeing them!
Thursday we caught up on all the work we had missed out on earlier in the week.
Friday we did divisions and were able to have 2 baptismal interviews. And then ran around town looking for a lawyer to marry those getting baptized because the one that was going to marry them died Thursday night:( We finally got a lawyer who could do it last minute and everything turned out good.
Saturday we ran to Santa Rosa (a city like an hour from here) to take care of a little issue and then ran around having some super awesome lessons. The Lord has blessed us with some great people who want to get baptized and are progressing really strongly.
So that was pretty much my week. My comp and I are doing good. Having lots of great experiences.
Thanks for all your letters and prayers. Hope everyone is doing well.
