The Gospel Truly Changes Lives....



Hola Todos...
Wow Monday already? haha time just flies here...haha
We had quite the week...It seems like we have been to all the corners of Agua Prieta searching for investigadores and going to meetings and going to Branch activites ....we have been up and down from Street number 1 to street number 50 at times more then once a day...I am trying to teach my companion to use his gears on his bike...He never shifts his gears and so I have been trying to teach him how to so that he wont be as tired...


We had a Zone Conference Wednesday with President Hernandez and the Hermana...it was super good we had quite conference and to end we watch Meet the Mormons as a Zone it was pretty sweet...
I hope everyone has had a chance to watch Meet the Mormons and to invite your friends to do so also...It answers lots of the questions about the church that we as missionaries answer everyday...and of course at the end of the movie with the part about the Missionary Mom...did make our zone a little watery eyed haha...


We have started a Volleyball tournament in our Branch every Tuesday...and the rule is that the volleyball team has to consist of 4 active members 2 less actives and 2 investigators...and so there is a possibility that we have 10 new investigators just from that activity so we are really excited about that....Also we have started to teach English classes in order to find more people to teach...so we have that activity on Saturday night...This is a great way to have more member interaction with our investigators so that they will have more friends at church...so we are super excited for the upcoming weeks with these activities...


We have been progressing a lot lately with our investigators....We have two investigators named Narciso and Maria they are brother and sister...they are about 50 years old...Funny story finding them...we were in an Abarrotes (little store) and Narciso comes in and we are talking to him and he tells us that he lives very far away on the out skirts of the city and that he likes to read by candlelight because he doesnt have electricity at his house...so we gave him a pamphlet of the Restauration and he went on his way walking....anyway we finished at the Abarrotes and walked out...we looked down the street and saw Narciso still walking out to his house...And I had a strong feeling to GO AND TALK TO HIM....haha I was about to tell my companion that we need to go talk to him when he turned to me and told me Hey Elder Lets go talk to that man...haha so we rode our bikes as hard as we could to catch up to him and we arrived on the outskirts of Agua Prieta on Street 50....We talked to him for a little bit and Put a visit with them....This experience was 2 weeks ago...and finally we were able to find him Saturday and found his sister too...we found out that they have had a tough life and they really want to change...We told them how they could change and told them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ...and Baptism...it was so cool to see that strong desire to change in their eyes...They are so excited to progress towards baptism...and They were some of the first people in the Church at 8 in the morning on sunday morning..haha..I will never forget the voice I heard as I was talking to a few members in the Chapel...Where is Elder Child I am looking for Elder Child...it was Maria and Narciso in the foyer asking the other Elders where I was haha...Super great people...that are truly prepared for this gospel to change their lives...and I get to be apart of it...YES!!!! haha


Thanks for all of your love and support....
Love
Elder Child
