August 26, 2013

This past week was fun haha, Me and Elder pardo we had a lot of funny things happen this past week even though it wasnt that productive... : ) but it was productive. ha, my companion got sick again, these past three weeks have been just full of enfermedades, but he had an infction in his stomach.. We went to a hospital because the missionaries have it free their. its a little far away though. But we started the week out pretty good, and then mid week he got sick, and then we got the antibiotic, and yeah he is better now, Atleast i think he is better : ) We asked three people to be baptized at the end of this change and they all said yes!!!!!!!! so that was one of the easiest things we did is just asking people to be baptized, and being productive at the same time, and sooo I learned that you can be productive by doing really easy things. Our lessons are to the point where we know exactly what and how we are going to teach it. When you stay with someone for a couple changes that kind of just comes naturally. But i really like the way we teach, Aaron is an investigator that has had the missionaries with him before us, and he has been tought, but has forgotten a lot of the things and we are just teaching it all again to him, his date for baptism is this next week. we are hoping that it will go through!!!!!!!!!! we have to do a lot by then but i think we can do it! He has a problem with drugs, and worshipping the virgin, but he hasnt taken drugs for a week, and we asked him to stop having the virgin in his house, and he said he would switch out the pictures with the new pictures that we are going to give him : ) He is a cool guy, for the whole time that i have been here his grandpa has always told us in the church AARON wants to get baptized.... and he always yells it too..... haha sooo we are working on him. He always goes to church sooo we will see what happens. We havent seen alot of other investigators because of the change of our food. Our food changes every month with the members, and where we eat nw it is a little hard to go where we went before....... So thats been a challenge, we are still trying to figure out . Me and my companion are going to start going on a lot of divisions with priesthood holders. melchezidec priesthood. We are going to try to start teaching a lot more. We just have to play it smart, and we can get a lot more done, and alot more teaching done. Other investigator is Salvador. He is 12, and his mom said we can baptize him!!!!!! All we have to do is teach him all the lessons and his baptismal date is for the 14. He has a lot of aunts and uncles in our church, and he want to be a member. He is really funny, and he likes to run in races, and he likes to play futbol! he is progressing well. We just have to help him read sometimes. but other than that he is set!!!! His family members are willing to take him to church every sunday even if his parents arent members!!!!! they are really close to eachother so thats good. Other investigator is Rosita!!!!!!!!!!! Rosita is the (wife) of Enrique. They were married through the church. A random church that we dont know. but all of a sudden they are seeing each other more often and we have given her the first lesson already and she wants to be baptized like enrique was. So that was really a suprise. She seems to have really good reasons why she wants to be baptized, and we are working with her to be baptized the 14th also. So I am excited about that also!!!! These are the people that we are working with the most. !!!!!!!!!!! I am excited and happy for them all. We are really working with all the members also. We are trying to strenthen them and the ward and i think that has been the hardest thing since i have been here. They definitly need more animo and strength!!!!! but with every little thing we do its more and more. . . adding to the ward, and helping them see the importance. Dad im happy you get to go back home after all this long time. I am sure you feel like me when i irst came into mexico.... ya..... you just dont understand a thing. but im sure of you stayed in brazil long enough you would pick up portugese. Mom i miss you, can you send me a list of everyones birthdays. ? i would like that. I love you, and i hope your big win theing goes well : ) i hope you get the 1000 your hoping for and that you meet even more people that can help you with your projects, and everything that you are doing and growing. Joy joy, It makes me happy that you had such a cool experience with feeling the spirit : ) I really liked the part about the ancestors of others protecting your family, that is really cool! awesome. and when i read that title i kind of just kept reading it over and over again,, stake emergency preparedness specialist over finance With big sentences come great responsability. : ) no but i hope you like it. ha. I know that th callings that we recieve bring great blessings into our homes and into our lives. and yes joy i would like a copy of that book, it sounds like it would help the people a lot here. Thanks. Love you and your family. I love everyone friends and family. I hope everyone has a great week!!!!!! Yesterday we had a family home evening and it wa about prayer. How is everyone doing with there prayers????????? Personal and family prayers! If your not doing them i would encourage you to do them!!!! : ) also try mixing them up a little bit, try to use words and phrases that you have never used before. Lets not get into a habit of asking the same things : ) I love you all, Elder Fellingham!
