Sorry for the short letter last week, there's a lot of juicy deets here in Guadalupe. So now I'm with Elder Villegas. He has the same amounts of time as Elder Baquiax, 4 months almost. I'm pretty much retraning him, because I don't wanna call people out or anything, but.... But Elder Villegas has a lot of potential, and is a good missionary, and he's from Mexico City like all my other companions, so we'll see what happens.
When I got to the area we had a grand total of 3 investigatores, none of which are progressing. It was pretty embarrassing. I don't know what these dudes were doing but there's nothing here. It's really sad too because the area has a ton of potential, it's a big area and a big ward. Yesterday there were like 80 people that attended church, and when I asked for a copy of the ward directory there's like 600 members in the area. In the ward there are 3 areas and in our area there's like 300 members. So we have a lot of work to do. This week we didn't do much because my companion was sick until Thursday. But the other days we found some new people to teach and we received some references from the members. I have a lot of faith the the Lord has prepared a lot of people here and that the fields are ready to harvest.
The other day I read a scripture that describes my mission D&C 64:33 and 34 says "Wherefore be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. 34 Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind, and the willing and obediente shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days." In our lives we never can know the impact of the little things we do.The Lord requires a willing heart and a willing mind, the Lord asks for us to obey and then he does the rest. I hope everyone has a great week, and can remember the Lord and live by righteousness that will lead us to our reward.
