Ok, so here goes...
Really there wasn't a whole ton of stuff that happened, we just worked like crazy and found 20 new investigators this week! We found some solid families and had some solid lessons and it was just a really fun week for working.
I don't even remember half of the things that happened this week. We went out with a member on Tuesday to go to a lesson but all of our plans fell through. So we ended up contacting with him and we got 2 lessons and 3 new investigators with him. The people just seemed to receive us like crazy this week, and I think a lot of it comes from us being willing to talk with everyone. We literally try to contact everyone that we see. Especially families and that has been super successful for us.
On Wednesday we had to get up early at like 5:45 to be able to leave early and drive from San German to Guayanabo for MLC (Missionary Leadership Council). So we were pooped and had to drive like 2 hours to get there. But we got there and President was all pumped about some activity they wanted to do. So we all got in the big white mission van (there's 20 of us, Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders) and we went out to Old San Juan where they had us run around and do a scavenger hunt. We were in teams of ZL and STL from our respective zones and had an hour to run around Old San Juan and find random stuff. We had tons of fun and we were sure that we were going to win but then... we lost, hahahahaha, but it was really fun! Then we ate and a bird pooped on me and stained my tie. Then we went to President's house and we had the real meeting and it was super cool. It's interesting to hear him teach in English, he's even more powerful! It's just a spiritual feast coming out of President's house!
On Thursday we had a super cool lesson with the cousins of a recent convert family that Elder Corales baptized a month ago. Super cool, but the sisters are going to have to teach them because there's only women in the house and ya know. But anyways, they'll get baptized either way!
On Friday a crazy lady took us all over town. She was pushing her 17 year old son around in a stroller because he can't walk... we started helping her with the stroller to get them home because she was pushing up a giant hill. But then she took us all over town because she had no idea where she lived!!! We literally pushed her stroller for like an hour and a half!! It was nuts...
On Sunday we were able to bring 9 people to church!! We found a family of 7 on Friday and they committed to come to church and to a baptismal date for the 28th! AND THEY ALL CAME TO CHURCH. Plus 2 other investigators we found. So it was awesome.
And we found out today that Mayaguez, the smallest zone, had the most lessons with member present this last week. So that's super cool to hear!! Things are super good!
I don't even have time nor do I remember everything that happened this week. It was just super cool.
Love you all!Zack
