I'm really excited to be working with a new companion and learning and being edified together. There are so many people here to help and and will be great to get to work with Elder Saragoza to help and serve the people here. Denver, Jeremy, and Edison didn't come to church last week. Actually no one did. Every week it seems we get more and more people to commit to come to church and then wala. It was really pressing on my mind and I was wondering what I need to do to change. I suppose right now I just need to move on and be strictly obedient so the Spirit can be with us and others can come unto Christ.
On the bright side however, Denver, Jeremy, and Edison went to the branch's youth activityand had a really good time. I had a hunch that they might have used up all their money to go to that and didn't have any for going to church. Yep, that was the reason. I think we need to emphasize what things should take priority. They said next week they're coming though because they'll be working all this week until and then they don't have work . They said that smoking has been going better as well. They didn't smoke at all at the activity and only had one (if only they'd come to church!). They're progressing really well there.
Well it's somewhat short but there it is! Love and miss you all!
