I hope everyone is doing well! We had a good week. My new companion is cool. WE are working well together. The area we are in has lots of potencial and we are working hard.
Everyone from our zone got here in Castanhal on Tuesday morning. We had the training on Wednesday so all the elders just stayed here at our house for 2 days so that was a little crazy/fun. The transmisson was great! We learned SO much and are super excited about the changes that we made.
We had a sad experience this week. We have been visiting that inactive family that has a son who isnt a member. We had made goals for them to go to the temple, we got rid of their coffee, everyhting was going great. We went last Monday and talked with the dad and he was super excited to go to church on Sunday. We went 3 more times that week but no one was at home. Saturday night we went there and the mom answered the door and said that her husband just left. He rented an apartment and just left. I have literally never felt so sad in my life. Over the past 3 months we have seen that family progress so much. They always talk about how much they love each other and want to be sealed, and then out of no where the separate, leaving the 2 kids without a dad in the home. After she told me that I literally wasnt able to say anything. We are going there tonight and bringing a family with us.
We have a lot of good investigators that want to learn and progress, but it is so hard for these people to go to church!!! We do everything possible but the people just dont want to go to church on Sunday. But it will all work out.
