Fall is Coming! :)

Dearest Family and Friends,

It is finally starting to cool down!!! Of course there are still those really hot days, but it is WAY cooler and I am sOOO excited! Fall is really coming!! :)

This week was really good :) Sadly, the Chataing-Pinero's and the Lechheb's didn't come to church on Sunday. :( I honestly don't know why!! They have all the tools necessary to go, they've accepted baptism, they keep their commitments, but then they don't come to church. We were only able to get one member at one lesson this week. It was quite a bummer. I am seriously wondering what more I can do to get things to move forward! It's like they're progressing....but not. I honestly don't know what to do. But it's okay, that's a good sign! if I'm doing everything I should, and this is the is for a reason. This is the Lord's work. If it's not meant to happen. It won't. I need to have more faith. We are going to try and do a branch FHE every month to get them more excited about missionary work. We have some great ideas, and we're going to see what we can do to get things going here! I am so excited! :)

I do have a neat story. One of our members had his mom visiting from Honduras for a couple months. We started teaching her every week, and she bore her testimony in sacrament meeting that she wanted to get baptized!!! Oh my goodness!!!! She headed back for Honduras today :( BUT, she gave us her info, and we got it sent to the missionaries in Honduras! isn't that amazing! Missionary work is pretty incredible. :)

We received a referral a while back for a lady named Carmen. She can't read or write, and doesn't even know the letters of the alphabet. We weren't seeing much progress with her, but then we thought "someone referred her...and we need to keep seeing her." So we have been teaching her how to read every week. We are teaching her letters and numbers right now. After we teach, we apply it to the Gospel, and do a spiritual thought. It's quite a humbling experience to be there. Missionary work is so neat! :)

Well that's about it for the week! Hopefully our families will come to church on Sunday!! :):) Love you all! :)
