So right now, The work’s not super great numbers-wise, considering this is the third week in a row without investigators attending church. We’ve had a week full of stuff as the Christmas season starts.
The zone planned a free chocolatada as our worldwide service kickoff for this Thursday. We were told to ask the members for whatever Paneton, chocolate, sugar, etc. that they could give us. However, our ward ended up not having ward council, and the bishop said he couldn’t announce it in sacrament meeting, so it only got announced in Relief Society.
We spent the first half of the week`s proselyting time running from one end of the sector to the other gathering supplies. Then we had the service project, which basically lasted all day Thursday. We finally got down to proselyting from Friday to Sunday, but our numbers weren’t super great by the end of the week.
Still, my hopes are high for a baptism by the end of the change. We’re finding people who are interested and show promise in attending church and keeping commitments. I think there`s going to be a much greater emphasis on our part of working with the members. Now that we know the members a little better, I think we can hasten the work.
he chocolatada was a blast. There were a ton of people who came, and it only lasted for maybe 30 minutes before all our supplies ran out. Obviously, it was a huge success, and we were able to get some referrals from it.
We spent the rest of the day singing Christmas carols in parks, stores, and on buses. The Christmas season is a great excuse to talk more about the Savior.
Once again, thank you so much for everything you do. I`ll be in touch. Love you!
