but anyways, we had three investigators in church yesterday. Derlis came without us having visited him at all this week, and sister statunato and her daughter (brother statunato is a member, and they both came to stake conference too). we visited her this week and she said she wants to get baptized but said she doesnt want to accept a date yet, so i'm not sure if she'll really progress very well (that's the same problem we're having with juan, he knows the church is true but doesnt want to accept a baptismal date until he feels more ready, but doesnt realize that he'll be able to prepare himself more easily if he has a baptismal date). (and with derlis, but he just wont accept a date cus he doesnt want to get married until december).
a couple weeks ago, we did a contact with a couple and set an appointment, but the day that we went it was raining and they had left. this week we were waiting to meet up with a member to visit an investigator and they walked up and asked if we had gone that day, and asked when we could come again. we went a couple times to teach them, but the husband was always sleeping (he works night shift security) but we finally were able to teach them on sunday. afterwards, the member that went with us (he used to go out with the missionaries a ton) told us about an old investigator, who hadnt gotten baptized cus her boyfriend was in jail, and we went to visit her and taught her and her boyfriend and her mom. the Lord truly blessed us that day, as we were able to find 6 new investigators to be able to achieve the goal that we had set for the week.
there was a zone conference this week too which was pretty swell. Elder Viñas, a seventy, came and taught us about the atonement. i also saw elder barahona, and he told me that three of the investigators that elder chale and i had been teaching got baptized the last transfer! lujan got baptized, yamila (the daughter of a less active) got baptized, and sara (the cousin of diana and yohana) got baptized.
there was a stake training meeting too for all the ward mission leaders and ward missionaries, so we should be able to work more effectively with the members. our branch mission leader is a convert who got baptized in november, and was ordained to the melchizedec priesthood and called as branch mission leader this sunday. he works on sundays but this calling should help him have motivation to get sundays off or find a different job, and he's excited to learn and help more in missionary work.
i cant think of anything else exciting that happened this week, so here you go. enjoy!
