Dear mom and everyone,
So, this week was an interesting one. We started out by going to the leadership council we talked about a lot of things how we can be better as leaders and how we can better help the other missionaries progress, in the work and personal. President told us that we need to have a model area, that everyone can look at and say, that’s how things should be. He also gave us the goal to baptize 10 people a month. That's crazy, I have 12 in the whole mission, so we have been working really hard to bring the area up to that level.
Wednesday, we had our Zone conference, we talked about the same things that we talked about in the council. He told us to have more faith to work harder to set high goals, so that's what we did. Thursday, we had our weekly planning, we set goals and specific actions to gain those goals. To gain the goal of 10 baptisms we are looking for families, and we want to baptize them all together. So, we are trying to find people more at night, when everyone is done with work and home with their family.
Thursday, we put the actions into practice looking for families tracting in the night and we had a little success but not a lot. We ask everyone for referrals we have had more success with asking everyone even the people we just met for people they know. That night we came home really tried.
Friday was the same we didn't have too many lessons this week just getting to know people, teaching them in front of their door, setting appointments. It's been fun but exhausting.
Saturday more of the same and Sunday we kind of calmed down a little, but at the end of the week we ended up contacting and 20-30people and we have this week full of appointments.
Huatulco is beautiful. being a ZL is cool but nothing really special. My comp is cool, we get along well and he has till march for his mission. Yes, the members feed us, they usually give us money here too. We haven't done splits yet but we are planning them on Wednesday. we have to go all the way to Rio Grande, it 3 hours away. cooling is fun we have an over but I’ll have to see if it works, I’m going to make some biscuits and gravy soon so that should be good. They've given us shrimp twice now but they don’t skin them so that makes it harder to eat. They Johnsons work more with the Less active but we do family home evenings together at a less actives house. and we live like 2 mins away from their house, it’s like having grandparents next door. The church is super close too like 1-minute walking.
Well I love you all, I found a restaurant that’s really interesting it’s not open yet but we’ll see if I can go. And I found something amazing in the store today.
