the family that we were teaching the severo family. they are all members but dont go. we had a family home evening with all of them and in one of there houses. it was a really good time and they then all went to church some got baptized 4 years ago went for a month or two and havent gone since. but we were able to get all of them to church. and we are talking to one of them. adriana. she is awesomoe. we are talking with her and trying to get her to the temple. she wants to go but doesnt have the money or the time right now. but we are going to get her to go. and she is trying to work with her husband. i am not sure with that situation but they arent together right now but they arent apart im not sure. but she is trying to work with him on the church and then there family can be seeled which will be really cool.
a nother family the leyes. we just randomly walk by there house and stopped there. it was a cool experience. he is the old stake presidents son went to one or two years of seminary and nothing else. he is about 30's then his wife same story. but they were thinking they should go back to church and about a week latter we knocked on there door. we had a family home evening with them it was a really good one too. and they went to church and we are working with there 10 year old boy to be baptized. but they said we wanted to go back to church and get active again. and elder finnegan said yeah sometime the lord answers your prayes with the holy ghost and some times he answers them or your desires with us....
it is true we are the lords messenge' when we are working with the holy ghost. we run his erronds.
a nother family is the lozanos. they have a boy that is 15 he turns 16 on march 27. my first time visiting them i thought that he would be the one to baptize his parents. we have gone and visited him alot theis change. he got baptized last year. and then fell away. but we hope he will be able to be ready and his parents as well
we met this american. her name is debby. she is from flordia. but when hurrican catrina hit she had to move and her husband is from here so they moved here. her husband died last year. and she is all alone she has a little farm really small like 15 chickens 10 geese 3 goats. rally small but that is how she gets her money. she has some really cool stories of how the Lord has blessed her life. it is cool to see that. she knows that there is a god and she knows how he works where if you pray and ask it might not happen today or tomorrow but just have faith and it will. but she is iffy about joining a church. but she is going back to the states to visit her family for six weeks and she said her reading material for the travel will be the book of mormon so hope fully she can find out for her self that God wants her to follow the commandments and one of them is to be baptized by some one with the correct athourity. the priesthood.
oh and it is all in english with debby so that is really nice.
school started for everyone today. it was funny our neighbor was out taking first day of school pictures. mom it reminded me of you doing that every year.
my stake president here is the man. his name is president bueno. he has 4 daughters. and 14 elder as his kids. haha he treats the elders like his boys because he didnt have any. and since his house is in my area me and elder finnegan are the most favored boys. we eat with him everysunday. we go to him all the time with questions about missionary things or with people. he gives us haircuts all that. his wife offers to do laundry every week. but he is like a dad and it is funny because he kinda smells like you dad. but he and his family is awesome. i think that jerry is going to stay with him this week. that is presidents son. he is really close with president smilth.
my spanish is coming along and it is doing good...... most the days.
