Wow we really had a great week!! We had 5 investigators in the sacrament meeting! So that was awesome! Because that is what we had been struggling on lately, getting people to come to church, so we have been making a few changes and President Carter gave me some really good tips and we applied them and we saw the results!! So I am super excited for that!!!
This week we really focused on being more bold and loving with the investigators. We helped them understand the importance of coming to church and the importance of repentance and baptism! We really saw a huge increase in the progression of our investigators. We currently have about 10 investigators who are progressing. And we have a possibility of 10 people to be baptized in the month of February. We are working super hard and the Lord is blessing us tremendously!! We have tons of people to teach and never have free time; we always have something to be doing. I think that is why the time is flying by for me!!! It’s been a really good experience!!!
Haha just a quick side note. The cyber we are in plays English music. Ha normally it’s like old no name music, but recently they played a country song that says Who Says you can’t go home? I want to say it is someone like Rascal Flatts, but I have no idea because I haven’t heard music for a while. Haha
We are currently teaching this family and neighbor whose names and ages are the following. Lautoro 14, Aides 70, Y adaline 84. I call the adaline lady; ABUELA NEGRA Haha because that’s what she wants me to call her. The people in Argentina are super direct and if you’re fat they call you fat or if you’re old they call you old, so Abuela negra in English would probably be offensive, but that’s the culture down here. Haha well they came to church and they absolutely loved it and want to be baptized! They should be baptized at the end of the month. Then Osmar y Mariacelia the parents of Victoria and Gonzalo are trying to get the paperwork done so they can be married and baptized!!
Oh yesterday I talked to Pablo for about 15 seconds!! He is doing well and is in capital! Were hoping he will come back soon! Well im going to be going! We’re going to go eat French toast!!!
Congrats Kade on your talk!!! Your gonna be a heck of a missionary! And good job karigan with your friend!! Good luck everyone with everything! Love you all so much!! Talk to you next week!
Love, Elder Eppich
