Week 40

What's up everybody! HAPPY NEW YEAR! this actually was probably the worst new years celebration in the world we played checkers and went to bed at like 9:30 haha I set an alarm to wake me up at like 11:55 to watch the new year come but it didn't go off and I woke up at like 3 and looked at the clock and said out loud "darn..well happy new year" and went back to bed haha so not super festive here in Georgetown!

This week was a pretty good week! we had some pretty good lessons! not going to lie my companion right now is definitely not the first person I would choose to live with but I'm learning a lot from him! Either by his example or maybe just having to learn more patience but either way I'm learning something haha. 

So we've been working a lot this week with a long time investigator named Enoc, his wife was actually baptized 2 years ago by Elder Torrico and his trainer when he was first here, but we've been trying really hard with him.  He is a great guy and loves us and loves to have the discussions and hear our message and pray with us but he is almost afraid to do anything.  Like super solid testimony, super nice, like this week Torrico got a flat tire on his bike so we called him and within like 5 minutes he was there to pick us up, he's just an awesome guy but he will not come to church.  He has been investigating for about 2 years and in the past he was about to be baptized and he was really excited about it but like the day before he backed out and said he wasn't ready.  He told us that he knows and understands that church is important and that its a commandment and that his life will be better and he'll be blessed if he comes to church, and he told us he's not busy on Sundays, all he does is watch TV all day, but that its not his time to come to church and be baptized yet.  Super hard! he is so humble and ready to receive the gospel, we just have to help him feel ready!

We have focused a lot more this week on finding, and have seen a lot of success we haven't been able to see some of our regular investigators as often but I'm excited to work with more people! we found a couple of really cool people this week! one in particular that I'm pretty excited about is a Mexican guy named Eduardo and he was like the perfect 1st lesson situation, he asked all the right questions and he was really impressed with the idea of having prophets on the earth again.  He told us he works Sundays and before we even asked he told us "but I'm going to ask my boss for Sundays off instead of Saturdays so I can come to church with you" haha so he is super solid! I hope everything works out and we can keep seeing him! 

We also were able to do that church tour with Jorge and Zaira and it went AWESOME! the spirit was super strong! they are coming along and one day will be ready but it'll take some more time! 

I love you guys and hope you all have a great week and a Happy New Year! 

Para Siempre Dios esté con vos!

On the way back from Louisville last Monday we drove through my old area, Shelbyville, and Elder Torrico saw these buffalo and FREAKED haha he thought they were the coolest things he'd ever seen so we had to stop and get a picture!
