August 25, 2014

This week was really full of great things but hardships as well. 1st of all yesterday we had a baptism! Mauricio Campos and his son Joakin Campos. They were baptized yesterday it was great. Mauricio quit smoking in a miracle 1 week, and he prepared himself well to be baptized. Then I worked a lot in areas of other missionaries. I went to the area of a few of the sisters this week to do some interviews. There will be baptisms in the zone this week, from the Hermanas, they are really excited. Then I worked with Elder Fuentes Saturday in the 2nd branch in San Fran, we helped one of their investigators know more about repentance. His goal is to quit smoking, so we taught him how to repent and now he is excited to keep asking for forgiveness and quit smoking so he can be baptized. We then had a zone conference Friday. Elder Morales and I along with two zone leaders from zone Bellville gave training about how to ask referrals. The vision of the mission is baptized more, retain more and reactivate more, the focus is its all one work, and what unifies it all is the referrals. Always looking for ways to baptize in every situation for retaining or reactivating. So we spoke of how to receive referrals. San Francisco is in a district called Bellville, I was in this district when I was in villa Maria. San fran is a lot like villa Maria but lots smaller. But the branches are great. in the city there are 8 elders in total, 2 elders and 2 sisters in 2nd branch and 4 elders in 1st branch (us) this last week it has been horribly hot, but yesterday and today there’s lots of wind and it’s been cold. I love it here and I’m excited to get to know the area more.
