We don't do anything...[Mar. 16, 2015]
It seems really strange to me that I am writing in English and hearing people talk in Spanish and still understanding everything.
One thing I learned... remembered... one of those, this week is that really we hardly do anything as missionaries. Looking back, all the success that I've had here in the Mission really is a miracle. The people I stress out about the most in the Mission progress the least and those who get baptized really do so without a great deal of effort -- weird paradox, no? We were talking with a member the other day that lives a bit far away with some other members, and she said that she was going less active until we visited with her. Now she goes to church every week. We literally didn't do much more than visit, plan lessons to teach... and that's about it. Really it is the Spirit that does all the work.
In other news, English class is going very well right now. We had about 12 students and only one of them was a member. We also found a new investigator through one of our other investigators that has to leave to Veracruz for work. It kinda balanced out, but he also asked us when he could be baptized because he knows it is important. The only problem is that he doesn't really care what church he does it in. I think there's still a lot of potential.
Have a great week!
