We had a cool district meeting talking about baptism and how we can help them keep staying active and then President Boucher came and we had interviews. It was cool to talk to him. He has tons of good ideas that we have been using.
After we had an exchange and Elder Durkin was with me and we get along great. He's from Las Vegas. We found an old investigator in the area book with only the name of the barrio and no direction or number - but we wanted to find her! So we went there and just contacted with the Christmas card and asking the people if they knew who this lady was. We found a few families just by doing that. We ended up finding her and it was actually a house I contacted a week before with Elder Herrera but only the dad was there. We get to talk to the lady and she invited us in and we taught her and also to her sister. I think it was a successful lesson because the sister named L doesn't have very much faith in God or Jesus Christ and towards the end we were helping her to see that she has had faith. I believe it was successful because we listened to her and all of her points and views and why she feels like she has no faith - and then we used those points and views to help her realize that she really actually does.
What I can see is that people say they don't believe in God because of all of the churches stealing money from people and so they see that and believe that God wouldn't be involved in this so they don't go to Church. But that is why the restored Gospel is soo important. It brings hope and knowlege and a more understanding of God and his plan for us.
We also found this other lady outside her house and we gave her a card. She was really cool and my gosh very BEAUTIFUL! Haha!! She said we can come back tomorrow so lets hope it all goes good. I think she liked how families can be together forever.
ok well - I love you! See ya in a few.
