Looking and Finding

Sam's week: Looking and Finding
Hey,

This past week was a pretty good week. We decided to focus on certain inactive families that we were going to try to find. We found them and they were really receptive. We talked with them about the importance of pushing forward and the blessings and the importance of taking the sacrament. They seem really interested in coming back to church. We also have an investigator, Alex, who comes to church a lot even though he lives an hour away. It is kind of complicated teaching him because of the whole distance issue.
Also, contacting people here is kind of hard, most of the people who let us in the first time don't want to set another time for us to come back to teach them, some people don't even open the doors. But, every once in a while there is someone who really wants to learn more about the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Church was really good yesterday, we were able to track down a keyboard to play for the music during the meeting. All in all, a pretty solid week. Anyway, have a good week everyone!

Another Transfer Down!

Heyoo,

Wow, this transfer flew by! I have already been here in Santa Barbara 6 weeks, and it feels like a lot less. This past week we had a Zone conference in Santa Ana. They presented the new Christmas video for this year, in Spanish it is called "Ilumina el Mundo" (Light the world). It is about "lighting the world" through little or big acts of Christlike service. We can share the light of Christ that we feel with others who are maybe passing through a difficult time in their lives and need us to help them. Everyone should watch the video using #Lighttheworld, or on mormon.org!

We also were able to continue to teach Patricia Rogel, and she is going to be baptized this coming week. The cool part is that her brother that got baptized a few months ago is going to baptize her. They are both super cool people, and have great testimonies of the Savior. This past week we helped a family clear a piece of land by their house. We used a machete to cut a bunch of huge weed…

An interesting week

Hey! (Yes, I am still alive) 🙂

This week was an interesting week, but it was a great week as well. With all of the excitement after the elections, and everything that is still going on, they grounded us for a few days. Then, on Tuesday, they let us out till 4, until 6 on wednesday, thursday until 7:30, and now it is normal. We read scriptures, watched church movies, drew on the table with shaving cream ( we were bored and out of ideas). Yes, we were very bored. But, this week they let us leave the house again and we were sooooooooooooooo ready to be working again.

This week we were able to have Pathricia's baptism and it was great! Her brother who was baptized 2 months ago was able to baptized her and there were lots of people who came to share their support. Her sisters came as well, and they are interested in learning about the Church.

We also were able to continue to teach Moises, and he is really interested in learning more about the gospel, he always has questions for us, an…

Santa Rosita and the end of a transfer

Que Hay?

This week was pretty good. We went to a town called Santa Rosita this past week to go and teach Alex and his family. It's a little town about and hour and 15 minutes away from Ocotepeque. It was a good lesson but started out kind of rough. His dad is Catholic and at the beginning he was very closed minded about the church, and what we taught. But, instead of arguing with him we testified of what we knew to be true. We taught about the plan of salvation and as we taught and testified the spirit softened him and we were able to share a lesson and feel the spirit. The power of testimony combined with the Holy Ghost is amazing. Alex also told us he wants to be baptized, but he wants to be ready, so we are continuing to work with him so he can feel ready to be baptized. The only sad part is that this transfer ends on Wednesday and we have a feeling that Elder Sibaja is going to leave.
This past week church was good. We had several people come that don't normally make it t…
