I don't know how to start this letter. Day by day, I guess, to not complicate life too much.Monday: In three hours of proselyting we taught 4 lessons- 3 with investigators and 1 with a less active member. We met a new investigator named R. We had contacted him in the street a few days before and he told us that he has never been part of any religion. His wife and kids go to some other church, his parents are Catholic, and he's talked to the Jehovah´s witnesses, but he said he's never felt anything. He feels bad because he feels like he's unbelieving or something like that and he wonders why. So obviously we taught him the Restoration and it went great. He said "If God has tells me which is the true church, I'll go. I'll get baptized. I just need to feel it's true." And he said that before we taught him about Joseph Smith and the first vision. So we put a baptismal date for July 19th and he accepted. The problem is that he works in Manzanillo and it's been hard to find him again, but we saw him yesterday and put an appointment for today at 8:00. We visited the former relief society president, who has been inactive, and taught her about Enduring to the End and the Sacrament. It was a super powerful lesson. She feels the spirit and commits to come to church every week, but she just doesn't come. It's a little frustrating, but I have faith that one of these days she'll understand. Then, we taught J, who is still doing great, reading the Book of Mormon, and accepting all the commitments, but he's still working on Sundays. I don't know if we should just be a little bit more patient (we've been teaching him for more than 6 weeks now) or drop him for a little while. He can't come because of his job, and he's tried everything to get out of working Sundays, but he hasn't been able to. I don't know if it's like a N family situation or if he's just not ready yet. Anyways, afterwards, a lesson fell through so we went to contact some referrals. We were looking for someone named M and we couldn't find her address, so we asked the people in the neighborhood if they knew any Ms around there. They gave us two addresses, so we went to look for the first and it wasn't the M we were looking for but she was super receptive and listened to us right there in the door way. We taught a 3 minute long lesson and left with a prayer without even entering the house, and she thanked us a lot for having come over and said she knew that God had sent us. We've been doing this a lot more lately, praying with people right there where we contact them, and it seems to be working. They feel the Spirit and the need to learn more.
See you next week!
