Week 55 - August 31, 2013 - 400 Days Out!

...But who´s counting? hahahaha I know that Dad and I are! 

Anyways, this week was pretty good!! It went by super fast!! 

On Sunday after church we went and had a lesson with Jose, our investigator that has to wait some time to get baptized. He was kinda sad but after we talked to him about the repentance process, everything was good!!  By the end of our lesson he told us that he doesn't care if he has to wait 20 or 40 years, he is going to stay active in the church and continue to be an example for his family.  

On Tuesday morning we went really early to Guadalajara. We had the zone leader councils on Tuesday and Wednesday. We had our interviews with President in the morning, it went really well. We talked a little bit aboput the situation with Jose and President Camarillo told me that he feels stonrgly that Jose should be baptized, he just has to go to church more.  We are so happy!!  We bought Jose scriptures, Liahonas (The Ensign), and we are giving him 2 of our ties, and a shirt. We are going to give it to him tomorrow before church!

Then Tuesday night we had our dinner and fireside with President Camarillo. It went really well. We had some super good cheeseburgers. He talked about the Holy Ghost and how we can receive answers from the Holy Ghost. It was super good and super spiritual!!

On Wednesday we had our zone leader councils. I had the job to talk about the area books, it wasn't too hard. For the first time ever my part wasn't to lecture haha!!! It was good though! We then traveled back to Morelia and got home at like 10.

The rest of the week has been pretty good. On Thursday I lost my phone though :/. I was carrying a bunch of stuff and we got into the taxi and I put my phone on the seat and forgot about it. Then as we left I tried calling it and no one answered...evcentually they just took out the chip and turned the phone off. So on Thursday I had to go buy a phone. But it was okay because I bought a super nice phone and it was only like 70 bucks!!

Well today we just found out about the transfers. Crazy to think 6 weeks has already passed again!! I have mixed emotions...President Camarillo wants us assistants to stay in Morelia and work with our investigators. That's good, but i
t's always fun to see the new missionaries come in- to see them scared, happy, nervous, and not really knowing what to expect! 

Well that's about it for my week. It was good and I am doing great!! Time is flying by so fast!! I can't believe tomorrow is September! Have an amazing week and thank you so much for all the love and support!!
