December 17, 2012
What a week! This area is going to be a good experience. It's a little town and everyone knows everyone. They are all super poor and there are maybe 10 paved roads in the whole town - it is great! There are a ton of hills as well. It is super beautiful here. As for this week it was a great one! We have been working super hard and trying to make the changes necessary. We have to make a lot of changes and help the members. This area they are thinking about closing it and shutting down the branch. The branch is a small branch of 20 to 30 active members. We have a lot of work to do - me and my companion - if things don't go well the mission will be saying goodbye to this area. The pressure is on! It is great though I have seen a lot of miracles just in the time that I have been here. We decided to fast on Saturday - me and my companion and really it built my testimony of fasting. We were fasting really to receive a lot of help and direction in the area and it happened. We were fasting to have a baptism and a lot of things and I asked the Lord in my prayers to give me the opportunity to talk in Sacrament too. The Lord has answered our prayers. Next week we will be having a baptism, an investigator that has been going to church for over a year has finally accepted to be baptized. The work is going great. Keep praying a lot for us - we need all the divine help we can bet!
