We are super busy teaching people, we end up teaching lessons during on Pday's now. Most people believe our message but everyone has physical problems. The most common right now is people working on Sundays. I have helped more people find jobs in this town than Obama could have ever dreamed of with all his clean energy initiatives.
It's been hard for me teaching so many people recently and not really seeing the results. But this week we set two solid baptismal dates. One is named Jeyson; he is a 17 year old orphan from Honduras. He has come to church twice now. The branch hasn't really supported us in baptizing him. But yesterday at church during fast and testimony meeting he went up and shared some really good stuff. He stayed all three hours of church and then after church we taught him a lesson with the ward mission leader on baptism. He accepted our invitation to be baptized on December 24.
Awhile ago we were teaching this man named Jose, we got him all set up with this sick job. 9-5 Monday through Friday, 40 hours a week, benefits, you name it. He ended up just taking this other job working at a restaurant on Sunday's so we dropped him. Then he called us the other day telling us he quit his job and needed some food. So we brought him all this food that a member had given us and taught him. We had an excellent lesson and committed him to baptism. And now after some persuasion we got the same good job lined up for him, also a baptismal date for December 24.
I certainly have had to learn patience out here in the mission field and I still have a long ways to go. It kills me sometimes when people look through a "glass darkly" 1 Corinthians 12:13.
The whole mission got together this week for a Seventy to come and talk; it was awesome!
