Oct 27 2014

Hey everybody, hope you all had a great week. I had a pretty fair week. We had a zone conference on thursday and President Rowley and Elder Grow (from the 70) met together and said if the mission wants better success we have to keep talking with the families in the street, giving them proclamations for the family and start knocking on doors and having faith in Christ and that He will lead us to those who are ready. This week we knocked on doors when the appointments fell through and then visited a few of those families yesterday but they weren't home. This week we'll be placing a few baptismal dates now that two investigators returned from Lima. Angelica is now reading in 2 nephi and her son still goes to church every week. We have to help encourage her to go to church every week because she only has 1 attendance that counts toward baptism but went to church twice so far. We also went looking for a family that we had contacted in the street and they either gave us a false address or my companion and I didn't take good note of the address. BUT, the person we found in that house, that we thought belonged to the family we had contacted, ended up receiving us and said that missionaries visited her in the past and she is a friend of a returned missionary that is in my ward here in San Pedro. She is like 20 or 23 years old and lives with her family (parents and brothers) and they couldn't join us but the next time they will hopefully.Yesterday  we went on splits with the ward missionaries and the returned missionary that I mentioned and another member went with my companion to visit and teach her, We are focusing a lot on finding new investigators and are looking hard, knocking on doors, talking with people in the street, and we will be hosting some activities in the church in the coming weeks to obtain references. The members will be required to bring at least one non member friend.
Yesterday was the primary program here and it was pretty cool, the kids did great. some made me laugh pretty good. But half the ward couldn't here them because there was no microfone or electricity for some reason :P
Anyway, I hope you guys have a great Halloween, eat lots of candies but don't get cavities.

someone was drying "pig meat"

Eating out with the ward mission leader (who incidentally posts pictures of Elder Evans on facebook almost every week, which I love. Not only is he the ward mission leader, but he cooks the elders one meal every day. He's a chef by trade)

  1. Great pictures and stories!! Sounds like he is working hard and that he takes his work seriously. I wonder how mom/grandma would feel if I hung meat out on her clothesline...
