Week 40

Well this week was a week of miracles.  We have been working very well, and finding lots of new people to teach, but none of them wanted to progress, so we found them, but they refused to progress, so they died, and this has been an on going thing for us, but it finally changed.
This thursday we went and visited a Hermana thats been inactive for a long time, but we heard that she had family that wasnt member, so we went in with confidence, and well theyre not quite golden, but they are a great family, and theyre going to be golden.  The husband has a quite large problem with drinking, but the kids are very open and accepting, so if all works out we will be able to baptize the hermana´s kids, and were going to work a lot with the husband to try and work him off the achohol.  Luckily hes not a rude drunk, hes just funny.  But three weeks of finding and contacting finally paid off.
We also had miracles in my district.  Our district has had a reputation for not working well, but our numbers and people that came to church shot up this week, the sister missionaries are working better, the elders are still decent, but even they are getting a lot better.  They just needed a little push.  Its a good feeling to watch them progress.
I studied a lot about being a better leader, and what i learned was it comes down to loving like a mother loves her children.  I read the talk by Elder Holland about Mothers, and it hits me like a truck every time that i have the best momma out there, and her example is helping me progress here even though im not with her!(This wasnt just for brownie points i swear) haha.
Love you all, stay diligent, and give references to your missionaries, and feed them good food! Missionary work is fun
