I really am sorry it's been so long! I don't have very good excuses for you, so I'll just say I'm sorry.
I feel like this week has been super long. We had zone conference last Tuesday, but I feel like it was like a month ago. We haven't been able to get ahold of our investigator D who had a baptismal date for this coming Saturday, so we haven't taught him or his friend this week.. and well, he no longer has a baptismal date for this Saturday. Nor we have we been able to teach our investigator L or our investigator I.. and not one of them came to church this week. They're all just kind floating.. not really progressing very much at the moment. But the good news is, is that a Hna. Carol told us that our investigator I asked her granddaughter who is Mormon what would happen if she got baptized in the Mormon Church, which means she's thinking about it.
We have a new ward mission leader and he's really quite animated. He has lots of good ideas and really wants to help us with the missionary efforts here in Llanquihue, so that's great. Our last meeting with him was super detailed and we accomplished a lot. We're going to have a big family home evening as a branch so that we can invite out investigators so that they can familiarize themselves with the church, get to know the members, and feel the Spirit. We're trying to include lots of the members who don't always participate in or come to the activities, so we've put two brothers of a family in the branch (21 and 19ish) in charge of the lesson, and Hna. Chilan and I are going to do a musical number with the youngest brother. They are going to teach about the families and prayer and we're really excited because it should be awesome!
We found some good nuevos this week too and one of the investigators that went to the Capilla Abierta that we had on Saturday in Puerto Varas is from Llanquihue and she has a lot of interest, so we are going to try really hard to work with her as well. Our branch is super animated lately! The members are always offering to help us with our citas and in Ward Council they were really wanting to work hard in every aspect. So the branch is progressing.. haha! That's good news! Soon to be the Llanquihue ward.
For now.. that's about all I can think of. Really I can't remember what in the world we did this week. It feels like it's been a lot longer than a week.. probably because I haven't written a group email in almost a month.. that could definitely be it! I really am sorry!
I love you all and hope you have a great week!
