Week #67: Tamaulipas 1.1 - XI, Week 6

This week was a pretty good week overall. It had its hard moments and its good moments too. We`ve been trying to help people progress, but so far we`re not having the best success in that department. I did a count of our "lessons" last night that we`ve had in our 11 weeks together, and we`ve had more than 100 (and that doesn`t count the active members we`ve visited, or other visits that don`t count as lessons) and we currently have 0 progressing investigators. No worries though, it just means that we need to work harder and be better. Plus, everyone has their agency.

We were looking at the numbers of the past 6 weeks of this transfer, and we`ve done a whole lot more actual teaching than we did in the first 5 weeks we were together in the area, so that`s pretty good. We`re going to improve our teaching skills, focus more on the people, find new people to teach, and keep on working. It`ll be good.

So, next week we`ve got the transfers. Anything could happen this time around. Elder Carbajal and I are starting what is our 12th week together, which means it`s the last week of "The First 12 Weeks" training that we do. So, this is my last week as a trainer with Elder Carbajal. However, sometimes companionships stick together an extra six weeks to keep working together and learning. So, who knows what will happen with us? We`ll just have to see, and accept whatever the Lord gives us. He`s pretty positive that we`ll stick together. Next week I`ll let you all know.

This week the Lord has been giving me little reminders to keep my faith strong. We all just need to remember the things that we have learned and experienced, and to keep our faith strong - constantly nourishing that faith. Church was pretty good. We listened to a talk by President Spencer W. Kimball that was pretty straightforward, and I really liked it. Haha. Quite direct.

On a positive note, we ARE seeing results as far as helping to reactivate less-active members. This week we had 7 (6 whom we have visited) come to Sacrament Meeting for the first time in a while, so that was great. We need to keep working on that and doing well. That made us pretty happy. We just hope that they keep going, and that we can help more come back too.

Well, I love you all. Keep learning and growing. Remember the Lord`s love for you. Take care!
