The weeks just keep going by faster and faster. It's crazy, how fast they go. This last week was a pretty good week. We taught our investigator, Cruz, twice and he's doing super good. His mom has said he can get baptized, but she keeps throwing things at him to make him really think about what he's getting into. But, Cruz doesn't really seem to be affected by it. He really wants to get baptized. The only problem now is we have to get written permission from his mom. And we're not too sure how things are going to work out. Our other investigators are doing good, they are slowly but surely moving toward baptism. Jake, another one of our investigators, is doing pretty good. He still has to wait for permission from his dad, so that's been a big problem. His Mom, though, has made some big changes with her attitude toward the whole situation. She now has more of a desire to figure out what they need to do so that they can get permission from Jake's Dad. As for right now they are just doing what they can and it's helping them out a good amount.
The Zone is doing super good, everyone is just going out and working super hard and we are starting to see the results of our hard work. I've seen a huge change in myself. This past week I had a goal to go out and work hard and I found myself doing that this week and it was totally worth it.
I also found myself realizing a lot of things I need to change. So I'm gonna be working on becoming an even more obedient missionary. The mission has changed me a ton. It's shown me what working hard can do, how much the gospel blesses lives, and how important it is to rely upon the Lord for help in all things.
Thank you so much for all that you do. I love all of you so much.
