This week we met Presidente Cordova and his family in a mini Zone Conference. It was so great! I loved Presidente Trevino and I'm going to miss him a lot but I also am really excited for the fresh start and changes that are going to come with Pres. Cordova. He is really excited and something that he is really focusing on is retaining the members that get baptized. We have started digging in and trying to find all the recent converts to visit them and also to teach their families! It's been such a great week and we've been able to find a lot more people to teach by focusing a lot more on this.
This week we also had a great experience with Narciso. He is such a perfect investigator! He stopped drinking coffee cold turkey from the second we talked about the Word of Wisdom and he is always just so excited! This week we had a lesson with him in a members house that's close to where he lives. We went to the lesson and Narciso was so accepting of everthing. The next day we were leaving the house and we felt prompted that we needed to go visit him. We went straight to his house and found him, his wife Teresa and his daughter Veronica. We started talking to Narciso and he tried to break up with us! He started telling us that it's been great but he doesn't think he should keep taking our time or that he should go to church. We were both speechless because we honestly could not understand where in the world this came from! We started asking him questions and he told us that he didn't want us to stop visiting and he still wanted to go to church but it's just hard for him becase he doesn't like feeling like a weight. The fact that he can't see is really his only challenge and it's been a big trial for him. We started talking and testifying and the spirit was just so powerful. He then told us not to worry and that he'd be there at church the next day. His family is just so excited for him too, especially his wife. It's so hard because Teresa wants nothing more than to go to church with her husband but she has to work on sundays to provide for her and Narciso. We're just going to pray for a miracle! And I told her I was going to send the missionaries to where she works so that they can get baptized and realize the importance of the Sabbath Day! haha
Well that's all for today! Sorry that it's short and maybe boring (Also lacking pictures) I promise next week will be a lot better! Today our email time got cut short because we got called by a member that had an amazing family they want us to teach so we went fast to go met them!
I am loving Nogales more and more every day, and every week! I can't believe I've already been here for about 8 weeks! It's been probably the fastest 2 months of my life! Tomorrow is officially my six month mark...Someone tell time to go a little slower! I can't believe I've only got a year left. It's definitely motivated me to put my shoulder to the wheel and start working harder! Well I hope everyone has a great week!
