A good, but cold week

November 17th, 2014

Yeah, so the first northern wind came in this week and it got pretty cold, like down to 40 which here is cold. Especially because no one has heating in their house. But we had a pretty good week that was guided by the spirit. we were able to find some good investigators, including a young couple with a little 4 year old daughter. They were a reference from a member and we went and told us about some problems that they are having in their marraige that stem from the fact that the husband started drinking. So we're here to save the day! The good part is is that they want to come to church and want to change, the both of them. But when we got to their house Sunday morning to take them, they weren't there. They also didn't answer the phone the whole morning. It was kind of frustrating, when you see people that need to change, and even want to change and do the things we ask, and then they don't do them. We actually didn't have that many people in church this week on sunday so we're gonna be teaching a lot of Sabath day this week. 

I feel good though besides that people didn't come to church this week. The other Elders in our ward had 12 investigators in church yesterday so we are trying to figure out what we need to do different/better. And on top of that, we have our zone to worry about. I'm starting to understand a little of how the leaders of the church feel. Also, the mission has helped me understand how important it is that the church is organized, because there's quite a bit of disorganization here and I don't know, I feel good that I've been able to help at least a little organize the church here and edify it. 

Next week is going to be much better. I mean, slowly, we're improving, step by step. But pretty soon, we'll be killin it here. It's my time to shine!

Well, hope you all have a wonderfull week and hope your not freezing up there! 

Love,
Elder Warren

Another week down.

November 10th, 2014

Hey family! So this was a pretty good week. We only worked about three days though because we had to go to Reynosa Tuesday and Wednesday for Leadesrhip counsel. We had people go to church this sunday but there still isn't anyone that is like super ready to get baptised. We need to keep looking. They're out there and this week we're gonna find em! Also, Elder Gomez is just hilarious. He makes me laugh everyday. I think he's the funniest companion I've had so far. 

Soo the mission secretary called me and asked me what airport I'm going home to and told me that they are going to try and buy tickets for the 17th of Februrary. Soo that's the day most probable that I will be comming home. It's not official yet though. But very probable.
Well, I love you all very much, sorry that these emails are so short, it just feels like there's almost no time to write anymore!

Well, hope you have an excelent week everyone!

Love,
Elder Warren

First week in Las Torres!

November 3rd, 2014

Well this area is pretty cool! There´s lots of work here! Also my companion is pretty awesome! He is teaching me a ton of stuff! He's just not afraid of anything and we're killing it here with the help of the Lord! So everything is going well to divide the ward, we just have to retain all the people that are here and it will be able to divide. 

This week was spent getting to know the members here to be able to work with them and also finding investigators. We found 12! A lot! but there aren't that many that are going to progress of the ones that we found. Also, we didn't have any investigators in church. But this week we're going to bring members with all of our investigators so that they can invite them themselves and then the members bring them to church. That's how it should be anyways. 

It's been a pretty awesome week. Sorry, but I've ran out of time. I'm going to write better things next week!

Here's my new address to send me stuff!
