Back on Track- November 19, 2014

Well, it has been a solid week. One of the best feelings is when an investigator that was progressing a lot, but then had stopped progressing, comes back and says that they want to keep going and they feel bad for not having kept at it. Nelly and Peralta (remember them?) were super excited, then slowed down a lot since Nelly was afraid of a big change in her life. But after talking to Peralta and reading the Book of Mormon, she realized that she WANTS to do these things and, even though it may be hard, it will be worth it. They came to church with her sister in law on Sunday for the first 2 hours, and they felt well. 

Roberto is also doing really well, and is ready to just get into all he needs to get into. He is a little bit reserved, which is a little hard, but we have been talking to the ward so that they reach out a little bit more to be his friend! He is a really humble happy guy that wants to just be happy spiritually and feels like this is the way to do it. 

Also we had 3 more investigators come, that were pretty excited to be there. 2, Emmanuel and Denny, who are neighbors, came in after the sacrament and then they stood up for the rest hymn. Then for the final hymn they stood up too HAHA but I ran over to help them read the music and helped them sit down as fast as possible. They were really good sports about it. 

Today I got to see Nene from Villa Gonzalez for the final time before his mission to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Wow, he has changed so much. I worked so hard so that he would get excited for the mission and go, then finally when I was finishing my time out there, he decided to start his papers. Miguel out there is also doing his papers, and they said that the branch is progressing a lot. Last week they had 93 people he said in sacrament meeting, and I think that that is more than here! He is awesome and is going to be an awesome missionary. I told him that he just needs to work hard and obey and love everyone, and he would be the best missionary possible. I cannot wait to hear of the success that the Lord has in store for him. 

Thank you for all you do!! I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving and that you all go and count your blessings, because WE HAVE GOT A LOT OF BLESSINGS!! THe lord is too good to us sometimes. But, we have just got to keep going forward with firmness and unbreakable faith!!
