This week was a good one, it started off with our district meeting on
Tuesday, with it be Christmas soon we did a little Christmas themed
meeting. We all wore Christmas sweaters and studied the life of Jesus. Then
at the end we shared some treats that we had and then we did a White
Elephant present exchange. It was a good meeting. But it ended bitter when
we found out that because we were getting another companionship they were
going to split the district. So I am no longer the District leader of the
Lilburn district. But I am now the District leader of the Lawrenceville
district. Its cool to be able to serve a different set of missionary's, but
there is nothing like your first district. So its sad to have to leave
them. But im excited to be able to serve these other missionary's!!
This past week we did not meet our goal of 70 contacts, we actually only
got 25. But! it is because we had our time filled with service, lessons and
really cool contacts. We racked the leaves for an elder sister in the
branch, and dont worry we jumped in the huge pile we made ;) then we were
able to get in twice with the suarez family. they are so cool. they
actually asked for homework and other things to study! our goal for them
this week is to come to the baptism we are having this weekend and we are
going to teach temples. i think this will be the week that they realize
they are ready. then contacting this week we went to this street i had felt
good about. and man was i right! every single contact we had had either
read about the church, talked to missionary's, been baptized or had a Book
of Mormon! It was super crazy! the person that had the book of Mormon was
the best. we actually went back last night and meet the husband as well.
They are from Uruguay and the craziest part is they are really good friend
with the branch president form my last area! we are really excited to start
working with them.
We also had stake conference this past week and it was good, it was all
about missionary work and how we need to do. our mission prez and his wife
spoke, a member from our branch with a son on a mish spoke as well. a
return missionary spoke and others. but it was really good and i liked it.
Im excited for this next week because we are going to the temple and we are
having a mission party and then we are having our branch Christmas party as
well. so ill keep yall posted!
Con Mucho Amor
