Week 21- Letter #22

Mon, Jul 9, 2012 at 2:38 PM ¡Familia! ¿Como estan? Its pretty wierd to think that I already have 5 months seems like not much time ago that I was at home leaving for the mission. Time has definitely flown by. I would like to go to the temple but we cant go because it is not in our mission boundaries. This week was a little wierd because I had 12 weeks with Elder Camarillo and we changed on Monday. His name is Elder Andrade. He is from Tampico Mexico area. He has 15 months in the mission and lots of baptisms. We went to M and V's on Tuesday, but only M was there. We talked with him about the questions for baptism. He passed with all of them except that he is not married. We are still trying to work with them to get married. We also talked with 2 families of less actives. They said that they would be going to church on Sunday. On Wednesday we had another meeting with the Mission President as a zone. He said that we are going to be changing so that we will be having every lesson with a member and that we would be focusing on helping the less actives and looking for references and to focus on them too. References from members are important because that is where most of the baptisms come from. He said that we would not be contacting anymore until October. He also said that if we don't have a ward mission mission leader and a ward council that we might be moved out of our area. So I might be moved because with our little assistance to church we don't have members that can take these positions. But this doesn't start until next week. Thursday we looked for more less active members and invited them all to the church on Sunday. We also asked them why they weren't coming anymore. Friday we went with one of the members from the ward to look for more less active members. We had some success but a lot weren't there. Saturday we found a new investigator that we are hoping will be able to keep the commitments that we give her, but she goes to a different city every Saturday and Sunday where her mom lives. We also helped someone paint their house and clean the house too. Sunday we didn't have any less active members or Investigators but we are going to work even harder this week so that we have some. I have a question- Where is Jacob going for his mission? I hope that all turns out well this week. Les amo, Elder Corbin
