Hello family! This week has been full of hard work, muddy shoes and burnt cake!
Hmm where to start? Sister P and I started off with a great Monday and got some good lessons in and it really just set the stage for the rest of the week, with focusing on having the spirit with us, carrying it to every lesson and helping all those we come in contact with to feel that same spirit. We had a great Zone meeting on Tuesday and focused on our goals and what we need to do this month to achieve our goals and baptisms this month of July! After our meeting on Tuesday, we made a ‘4th of July’ lunch and enjoyed potato salad, and watermelon juice. We just kept yelling, Amerka while we were eating. We also scheduled for two of our investigators to get their baptism interviews done this week for their baptisms next week (Nancy and Maldwin) Its really happening!! All our hard work and finding and work here in Mandama is paying off.
We worked hard this week and we are really able to see the fruits of our labors this week! Especially with the 10 investigators that we had at church ! I know that about half of those will be baptized this month and we will have some too that are scheduled for August! On Thursday, we tried making Banana bread in a fire oven and it cooked REAL fast… and burnt real quick too!
This last week, Brother Llego expressed his concern about not being able to go to church because of his schedule at work so we explored some options and he talked about how he just needs to ask his boss, and he gave him to us this week, as a referral! We scheduled a time last Friday, we had the opportunity to go teach ‘Sir’ and his family. Sir’s name is Brother Romeo Mendova and had 5 kids in college and HS, his wife just passed away this last February. They have a very neat family and I feel so blessed to be able to teach them. They were not able to get work off this week to be able to attend church but I know that this next week, he will be able to come!
I love this work and I am so grateful to have been here long enough to see the fruits of my labors, because I know that doesn’t happen all the time (especially) on a mission. Both Nancy and Maldwin were investigators that sister Valles and I had found back in February, they struggled, we struggled with them and they will be baptized at the end of next week! Wellp that is all for now, friends! I love you and I hope you’re having a great week!
Love, Sister Rossberg
