Ok, things in my area are going pretty well, we have a lot of work to do, lots of people to reactivate, lots of people to find and teach... lots do to. But that is great. :)
We have been seeing a lot of progress in a few of our investigators, little by little and with patience, we should be seeing success soon. :)
Some blessings from this past week-
1-Hna. S. (reactivated) and her friend investigator hna. M. fasted yesterday and paid their fast offering!!! Also, the husband of hna. S. continues to progress really well, went to church yesterday for the second time, and paid his tithing (even though we haven't talked about it yet... but his wife had been wanting to obey that law, so he wanted to as well!) Also, her son-in-law who is also listening to our message is getting friendshipped by the young adults in the ward, and told us that yesterday the bishop had asked them all to fast, so when we went to teach them yesterday in the morning he was all 'i haven't eaten since yesterday!' maybe he doesn't understand exactly what is the fast... because we haven't got there yet, but he did it anyway. :)
Also, because yesterday was Hno. J. (Hna. S.'s husband) birthday, we gave him a Book of Mormon, and he was super happy because he had been reading his wife's copy, but asked us for his own. 'Best birthday present ever'- he told us.
Fun facts- last week in our zone meeting we got new rules!!! Or better way of saying it... we got rid of some of the rules that our old president had established... they were good, and I respect my old mission president, but now I feel a little more free. :) haha, now we can have more time to write, zone activities, and a lot more things... yay! So today we had our zone activity, and we invited the youth from our wards to come. We played volleyball and soccer, ate hamburgers, and played with water balloons, and as we all know, we all got soaked. But it felt soooo good with this hot weather. I am still a little wet now, but it feels good.
I just wanted to extend a quick invitation to everyone to invite someone to listen to this message- the Restoration of the Gospel, you can share it with someone who doesn't know the gospel, a less active, or even study it out for yourself, and pray and ask God if it is true. :)
Have a great week!
p.s. I completed 16 months yesterday.... yikes.. time is now going fast..
