This week was really good!
Tuesday night we got home at like 9:30 after being on the road all day! We had transfers, so it was just a crazy day. And there are 21 new missionaries in Puerto Rico! So I was in charge of driving some of them around from President's house to the chapel where they meet their trainers and stuff. It was fun and stressful. But it's always cool to see the new missionaries and feel their love for the work!
We worked super hard during the week and we saw the fruits. We worked a lot with the members and taught an old guy named Herbert. He's been an investigator for a while and had a baptismal date but now he has another one and came to church on Sunday and loved it! It was really cool to have him there, he was super happy.
We've really been working to help the Young Single Adults work more in the work, and this week I think we saw more excitement from them and we were able to also find some cool younger people that have potential to progress in the gospel.
Today we had a Zone activity and we got to play water balloon volleyball and some other games in Mayaguez in a park close to the beach. It was really cool to just laugh and relax with the zone and have fun together. As a zone we came to the conclusion that we want to baptize 22 people in April. That's a huge number and has never been achieved before... so here we go! We really got to break it down and talk about how we're going to do it. So we're really positive about this goal and we're hoping we can achieve it!
Elder Arteaga is a really good companion (my new companion, he’s from Mexico). He wants to work hard and is really centered on working with the members and doing activities and stuff. So we're going to try and do more activities to see if we can get a younger crowd to come to church!
This truly is His work and I can see it more than ever. Now is the time that the Lord needs our help to bring to pass all that he has planned for His children. I know that this is His true church.
Love you all!
