Dear loved ones, This week we faced some challenges. Our main investigators are Mack (the old man referral from member), Brandon (the 9 year old in the less active family), and Victor (the 21 year old son of a less active). Unfortunately the latter 2 did not attend this week and Mack has been struggling with coffee. Though in good news a friend moved in with a less active recent convert (who is now returning to the church) who lost her husband and is left with her 2 young children (7 and 2). We only had time to explain church and invite her, but she went! Hopefully this week we'll be able to teach her and get her progressing towards baptism and salvation :) Other than that... not much goin on! Just lookin for new investigators and waiting for a visa! Some members said they're going to bring me over some mexican clothes from Reynosa (Mexico)- should be good. haha. Other than that we had a couple of good lessons- one of which is when we shared a Mormon Message (Forgiveness: My Burden Was Made Light) with some members and we were able to feel the Spirit really strong as we talked about how we build our foundation on Christ and that we only have that foundation through the Restoration of the Gospel. Hopefully they'll start participating more actively in missionary work now. Not much else to say! Keep praying for my visa and I guess we'll just keep waiting on the Lord! Love you all! Thank you for everything you do and have done. Have a good week and don't miss a day of scripture reading!
