This week was honestly a little bit rough. Lots of ups and several downs. We did find a few people that we are going to start teaching. Last night we went with one of them, Marcos, and he really accepted the Book of Mormon very well. The problem is that we can't pass with him again until. We are going to use the cell phone to stay in contact with him this week. We have an advantage over his Christian church for two very big reasons. Our church is the true and living church, and it also helps that our church is closer to his house. So maybe we will be able to help him come to church with us.
My street contacts are getting better now. This week we had splits (we call them divisions) with our district. I got to work with Elder Button (the elder that is the son of a friend of somebody, the one from Kentucky). He is about to go home this transfer. He has amazing contacts and I am trying to do it more like he does. I hope to be able to do it because he has a lot of success. I want to be able to have a very big teaching circle and we hope that this week we can put the work as our number one priority and find a lot of people to teach. We are looking desperately for families so that we can teach, baptize, and then seal families. It's a lot of work and it's not as easy as we want.
We are trying right now to have the members give away Books of Mormon to their friends, and we are hoping to be able to have a few references this week. We have given away about 12 Books of Mormon this week and we are going to give follow up to see how it went.
We are also going to walk faster this week. Elder Pizarro has a very relaxed attitude and I hope to be able to change that. We are going to get home and be exhausted this week and I hope that we can be blessed with more success for doing that.
Yesterday Karen didn't show up to church. We talked to her and even though she already passed her baptismal interview we decided that it would be best to move her baptism one week so that she can go to church one time more before getting baptized. We want her to feel the spirit in the chapel so that she can understand why it is so important to go there, every single S.
This week end I started a project for my study. I am doing what President Nelson talked about in the General conference. Looking for every scripture in the Book of Mormon that talks about Christ. I am using the index and I have learned a ton in just 2 or 3 days. I highly recommend it, because it is incredible to read analyze and then mark those scriptures. It would be a great project to do before you all go back to school in less than a month.
