So this week was great. We really have been working hard on finding. Our whole zone is doing something to help us find a lot of people for this transfer and the next one. It's working really well, we have been finding a lot of people to teach, although not everybody wants to listen we work diligently to find the ones that do. The best part is that we have this amazing investigator named Ibelize. She's probably the best investigator I've ever had. She really reads and studies the Book of Mormon probably better than I do. She even applies it and tells us how she's been applying the teachings that she learns into her life. She's come to church twice now and always participates in the classes. She has a baptismal date for the 26th of this month and she's very excited for it.
Something really important that I've learned since I got to this area is that the numbers aren't important. I'll admit it, before this part on my mission I measured my success by my numbers. If our numbers were good than it was a good week; but if our numbers weren't that great it wasn't a good week even if we had a lot of powerful lessons. I've learned that looking for success in numbers is not the best. When I looked for success like that I was just wanting others to look at my numbers and think ¨wow, look how hard that guy works.¨ I've learned now that worldly recognition doesn't bring happiness. As I've been looking for success as it's described in Preach my Gospel I've enjoyed my mission a lot more.
Besides that I thought I'd just answer some of Mom's questions. The poorest parts of my last area are poorer than the poorest parts in this area. My apartment is small, but it's pretty nice, there's always water!!! There are two other missionaries that live in our house. My last two zones are the only two zones that don't have sisters because I think president thinks they're too dangerous. But this zone has lots of sisters. And my companion's name is Elder Florentino, he's dominican.
Anyway, love you guys!
