Letter from December 19, 2011

Hey friends-

So, here is yet another short email because I am going to talk with my family next week. They will share all the details of the call with you.......I hope.

Ward activity

Since we are low on progressing investigators, I thought I would share a little bit about our ward party. So, this week we are going to have it and the ward is buying 24 kilos of meat :D and yours truly is the one who is going to cook it!!! Yay for asados. However, the activity does have a spiritual purpose and we have invited almost everyone we know to the activity, so it should be great.

Cool new finding method

Elder Shaum and I have started going through the old contacts that other missionaries have done. We divided the sector into 4 parts and whenever our citas fall through, we go and re-contact these people. The idea came after we were really frustrated about not finding anybody. So far it has worked out really well.

Anyways, I will have more details that I will give to my parents in the phone call home.

Hey everybody-

So, I actually have a funny story this week to tell, but first the cool stuff.

Zone Council

So the entire mission had its fast this week and then we had a Zone Council. It was a really spiritual experience for all of us and we were able to understand better the potential we actually have. We are going to have to do a lot of work, but all of us felt the Spirit confirming to us that this is the course we need to take. We were able to set baptismal goals for January and February, which was the most spiritual part of the Council.


We have several good investigators right now and we were able to set 2 more baptismal dates. I am hoping that they will get there, but right now we are really focusing on inviting everybody to be baptized.

Food with a funny name

So, my mom sent me a spicy (meaning hot) spice mix (sorry for the redundancy) for meat. All 4 of us in the pension didn´t have lunch for the day so we decided to make "spicy as" (pronounced like the swear word). Tee hee... Of course we realized the funniness of the name. But they were incredible. I just thought that since I haven´t told an "as" story in a while, that all of you would appreciate this :D

Well, have a great week!
