Buenos Dias Todos!
This week was definitely a tough week full of trials, not much to report, but lots of walking, contacting, praying, contacting, and a couple of shocking letdowns.
This week, as we only had 1 progressing investigator (J) we spent almost everyday walking in the street contacting people and houses. It was really rough because no one was home and everyone was at the beach or really mean (seems like the fun people go to the beach and the mean people stay home). It was really tough. We had some days where we contacted all day and didn't have one person who said that we could pass by another day. It was really hot and really tough. But at least we had Jorge to teach every once and awhile.
J passed his interview for the baptism and everything was perfect... Until Sunday morning...
15 Minutes before church we got a call and J said that he wasn't going to be able to make it to church and that he wasn't going to get baptised. His family said that they were going to kick him out of the house if he got baptized. (He is 41 years old and takes care of his family). It was sad, but it showed that his testimony wasn't strong enough to break past the trials. Needless to say, he didn't get baptized and he wont be sharing with us anymore. It was sad to hear that, because that is the second investigator that was about to get baptized and then bailed on us this change.
Well this week we have changes and meetings so we will see how things go in order to baptize this month. Your prayers to find new people to teach would be very appreciated :)
I love you all!
Elder Nielson :)
