The scoop at the office

Que dice familia?

Wow this week has been really really different! We have been pretty busy with the transfers, the new missionaries, and with the investigators in the area. I´m going to start off by answering some questions from mom before I forget, haha. 

1. What are some of the things you've done this week in the office?

This week we have gone to the airport to greet the new missionaries and to send two missionaries home who finished their missions. We gave a bunch of capacitations to the new missionaries, took down all the key indicators from the missionaries (contacts, lessons taught, baptisms, etc.) asked for the baptism dates on thursday, and a bunch of other little errands that president has us do. We also got to eat serveral times in the mission house with president and his wife, it has been fun to get to know them a little more.

2. What time do you get to proselyte? Is it different each day depending on your duties or do you go out at the same time?

We usually are in the office all morning, and then we go eat lunch in the area at 2 and start working at 3:00. But sometimes we are busy with something and so we leave  the offices a little bit later. this week we left late alot because it was the first week of the change and we have to worry about the new missionaries and all of the changes that happen in the mission. On tuesdays we are always going to travel to a zone and visit the district/zone classes, and then we do divisions the whole day with missionaries who are struggling or need help with the area. 

3. Why is your P-day now on Saturday instead of Monday?

P-Day is on saturday because that is when alot of people get work off, so there isnt alot to do here in the offices. But on mondays, we have to talk to lots of people, businesses, and we get alot of calls and people who communicate with us so we switch the P-day to saturday so we are in the offices on monday.

4. What's the scariest thing you had to do this week?

I havent really had to do anything the capacitations and everything is something that I love to do... I dunno, I think the hardest thing I have had to do is be patient because we dont have as much time to work in the area.

5. What's the most rewarding thing you've done this week? 

The most rewarding thing has been finding a couple of great investigators, and being able to get to know and help all of the new missionaries, that was really neat. Also, the two missionaries who went home, the day before we had a devotional with them and with president, just them and us in the mission house, and it was neat to hear the testimonies of two misionaries who finished their mission with honor. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that today in the morning we went to the temple because a recent convert that we all met from córdoba is going on a mission and so she went through the temple and wanted to say hi to us. So we showed us as she was getting out, but before we saw her I got to see George and hermana Raquel!!  remember them?? They are two converts from Córdoba and they had just gotten out of the temple when we got there. They look soooo happy and Hermana Raquel had done confirmations for the first time!! I cant describe the joy I felt to be able to see them so happy and that hermana Raquel had been able to go through the temple!! That was great!

So ya thats the scoop on the offices, haha. Good stuff. As far as the area goes, we have a couple of good investigators that we just found, we visited one in the morning today and she already got an answer that the church is true!! We are going to bring them all to church tomorrow. 

It was so good to see you all on sunday! I love you guys so much and Im greatful that my Heavenly Father sent me to such a special family!! Love you guys! Have a great weekend!!

Mucho amor,
