This week from Elder Davis and Finally Some Pics!
To The Gang,
This week was a tiring one in which we had lots of discussions and good member-missionary correlation. From all of that we will end up having one baptism to show for it. The investigator is the 9 year old Lester, son of an inactive family, however the real victory that we are seeing in this circumstance is the reactivation and overall faith of the family. We have have some really good experiences with them and how we found them was especially cool. We have found many other positive investigator that we feel will progress but unfortunately we couldn't get them to come to church this Sunday. That is quite honestly one of the hardest things here... simply getting people into the chapel. I have also been focusing lately in working with the members effectively and building productive relationships with them. From the start of my mission I was always taught that the way to obtain such relationships you need to simply be their bros and make them laugh a lot. Yet as fun as that is it is not very fruitful. I have been studying a lot and getting good advice from successful missionaries in attempt of improving this aspect and I have been putting it into practice. We will see how it goes.
My companion and I are getting along very well and working hard. Obedience is not one of his priorities by any means but he is pretty good for a Honduranio. We are even having comp study, and that is a rare thing in the mission Retalhuleu. We are also having some good fun too.
Today we had a really fun P-day and went to some beautiful waterfalls. The trip was really rushed and uncomfortable (see photos) thus I wasn't able to get very good photos, but... it was a lot of fun and I'll send some of the photos that I managed to get.
I love you all, Guatamalas is amazing, and the Church is true! -Elder Davis
