Transfer 10 Week 1 February 23 2015

Well I had another really good week. I met my new companion on Tuesday and we started to work like usual.

My companion is named Elder Sabastian. He is from Idaho and he has been on the mission for about 8 months. 

On wednesday we had our zone meeting. We recieved a book of mormon from a member in a different ward here in Piedras Negras. It came with an address of her friend that she was gifting it to. So that day we went to her house to give her her Book of Mormon and to contact her. Her name is Paloma and we had a really good lesson with her. She says that she is really excited to start reading because her friend that is a member has told her a lot about it. She also wrote her testimony and marked a lot of her favorite scriptures and chapters for her. It was really cool.

We were also able to have a really good lesson with our investigator named Adrian and his kids. We contacted him a long time ago, but we haven´t been able to have a real lesson with him because he is always busy with work or with his children. We taught them the Restoration and we shared the video of Joseph Smith. They all decided that they want to start reading the Book of Mormon as a family and to pray to know it is true

These were really great experiences because I know that if they read meditate and pray they will recieve their answer through the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true. 

Yesterday was really good as well. Three of our investigators went to church! Which was really great. My companion was called up to give an impromtu talk as well. He struggled a bit but it wasnt horrible. I have heard worse, and I have given worse. Then we had a stake Priesthood conference. It went really well. The three young men that are going on missions all bore their testimonies, as well as a brother who was just called to be the stake Patriarch. The Stake President gave a talk about Patriarchal Blessings. It was really good.

Well thats it

Elder Earl
