This last week was awesome! We focused on finding new investigators and more people to start teaching, and found a lot of success. We found a couple new families to teach and a new investigator that is extremely ready for the Gospel. The new investigator is a woman that has passed through a lot in her life. She has lost children, lost jobs, gotten divorced, and a whole load of other things. But she has finally found where she can find the solace that she is looking for. She is going to be getting baptized on the 13th of March. We are really excited for her.
What really helped us out last week was looking for and asking for and begging for references from everyone in sight. We talked with everyone we could, and asked for people to teach from each one. We finished the week with a personal record for references recieved in a week (58!) the next week we will be getting at least 70. ... That is the goal anyway. We want to find even more new investigators that are ready to progress.
Elder Costello and I are doing well. We are both missionaries that have time in the mission and that have a decent amount of experience, which is nice. It makes doing divisions with the members particularly effective. Love it!
The ward is doing well. Chugging along. Nothing much to report.
Sunset in Metepec
And we ordered a huge pizza. Pizza and the BoM. Can't get much better than that. :)
This is a joven that always comes with us. He is twelve years old and a few inches taller than I am. I'm short.
The Elders baptized an investigator on Sunday. His name is Rey David. We totally baptized King David. :):) He is awesome!
The font water was green. It looked like gatorade. Bleh.
And finally, a family that Elder Kennington and his companion spend time with during the week (and who apparently feeds them well!) sent me some pictures they took of Elder Kennington and Elder Costello making pizza at their home. This is the same family that Owen Skyped from at Christmas. They are the Garcia family.
Were you caught licking the bowl again?
Nice hairnet Elder Costello!!
Where was Elder Kennington's hairnet?
Glad to see our missionary is displaying the gracious table manners with which his mother sent him into the field.
If you will compare this pizza with the anemic one they purchased above, I think that will explain their glazed, awed expressions.
