It's beginning to warm up
Kind of- we had a couple of nice days that I didn't take my jacket with me at all.
Well Tuesday we had a zone meeting where the zone leaders repassed all the rules with us from the missionary Handbook, and that there will be a couple of changes with the district meetings and the numbers that we report every week etc. But pretty normal.
On Sunday we gave talks and I spoke first and afterwords I sat back down in the congregation and Sis. Campos behind me said, "You got a 7" which is like an A on your report card here in Chile. So I just opened my bible to Exodo 20:16 where it tells her not to lie, then afterwords I went to talk with Susana Tello the mother of Sebastian who was baptized a while back. She is a very honest and straight forward person and she told me that she didn't understand I thing I said. I was grateful for her sincerity.
So for the first time this week we thought we would try to teach about family history work. (our mission has never been the best about teach lesson 5 in Preach My Gospel) It went quite badly the lesson and we decided to go back to the drawing boards on how to teach it.
This week seemed to really go by slowly but at the same time just nothing really seemed to happen. So we continue onwards.
