Things are going great here in Tiloarque. Im continually impressed by the ward here...they are really far ahead of the rest of the wards that ive been in. A lot more maturity in the culture of the church. the really get how the church is supposed to work...starting meetings on time, not participating in gossip, etc. We are working with the ward mission plan and everything seems to be going great. The bishopric and ward leaders love us and we love them. They keep giving us a lot of great references that theyve been holding on to. Lots of the investigators went to the temple open house but hadnt been contacted by the missionaries so we are getting on that. There was a 12 year old kid that was coming to church every sunday, his name is emanuel, he isnt a member but he went to the temple with his family and their neighbors are really strong members in the church. The mom and uncle and brothers and sisters are all really receptive and said that they would love to go to church with us, so we are working with them.
There is also another family of less actives called the familia Coto, the son and his wife had gone to church to present their new baby, but arent members. before the husband Marvin could never go to church because of his work, but how he has a better job and has weekends off. We visited him yesterday and he says that he really wants to make changes. He and his wife have a baptismal date for the 25th of this month.
We are going to the temple tomorrow! its been soooo long since ive been to the temple. Im really excited. we are going to the morning session at 7 am. but we want to get there about an hour early to watch the sunrise. My temple recommend expires at the end of this month so ill have an interview with pres. fortuna to get it renued. I will get to go one more time my last day in the mission with my group when we leave.
Well thats about it. Our pday is actually tomorrow now because of the temple trip, we are just writing today. Let me know how everyone is doing. Love you guys. Im excited to talk to you next week. the last phone call...crazy!
Con mucho amor y cariño,
