Week of 7/18/16

Hola Mama! ¿como esta? Estoy muy bien como siempre and we are working hard in the area, we didn`t have any investigators come to church, unfortunately.  We talked to a less active member and he told us his daughter is 9, and she wants to be baptized, her name is Brenda. We talked with her this week and we are going to have a family home evening with their family tonight
The truth is we really haven`t had a conversation with the guy who created his own church, we don`t want to fight with him or anything,  We just know he is not the head of the church, I think it's like a pyramid scheme kind of thing, but it has given us a chance to search for people in other parts of the area, and we have taught a few new families which is awesome, they just need to attend church! I think its generally the hardest part of missionary work is getting people to come to church. 
My talk on Sunday was about covenants, and it went well, I only had about 7 minutes to give my talk, but I think I got my message across.
A member from the stake came and talked on Sunday, and I really enjoyed his talk, he talked about self-sufficiency and having patience. He mentioned that a lot of times in our prayers we ask for things, but we don`t remember that in the Lord`s time we will recieve our answers. He explained that we just need to do our part, keeping the commandments and working hard. 
Everything is good though, not much new and no pictures of my area yet (sorry) we have been busy finding new people and our area is pretty big so lots of walking too. I hope you and the family are well, thanks for the pictures as always. It's cool to hear all the people I have grown up with in the church going on missions, time flies by fast.
Hope you have a great week! I can`t believe school is going to start again soon, it seems like summer is shorter and shorter every year. Can`t wait to hear from you soon!
