This week I made my two month mark in the mission! It is really crazy how fast time flies by! Things have been really good and I have been really enjoying my area! we have a lot of work to do and I lot of tracting!
Monday: Monday was good, after pday we had dinner with some members and went tracting. We had a good time tracting, there was a lot of people out among the apartments and we were able to talk and meet with a lot of people and hand out a lot of book of Mormons. We found a lot of people that spoke Spanish!
Tuesday: Tuesday was crazy but really good. we started off with our zone meetings and then went tracting. We had a referral but could not get into the apartment building because the front door was locked, but while we were walking up our referral was just getting off of work and we were able to meet and talk with him. We talked to him for an hour on the doorstep and in the end we were not able to get a return appointment. After that we taught a member from Bolivia and had dinner with her.
Wednesday was really fun because we had a mission-wide conference for all of the sister missionaries. We went for a nature walk and then had lunch. We then had some speakers come talk to us. After that we were able to get our bikes so now we can bike to some areas in our mission!
Thursday: We went and did service at the farm, we painted a fence, and then we helped with a maze they are setting up for the fall. that night we had a lot of referrals that we went and visited with. We had a meeting scheduled with one of our progressing investigators, but it fell through.
Friday was our most successful day tracting this week. Through tracting we met a lot of families that were interested and set up some return appointments for next week. We are really excited about a lot of them! Our other meeting with our investigator fell through. It was crazy but we were able to set up another appointment.
Saturday: Saturday was crazy we had a lot of our appointments fall through this day, but we were able to set up more. We went to chipotle with a member and then met with a less active member who was baptized a year ago. We also met with a women who has been less active for a while. We met with her last week as well, and now she has come to church two times! We were really excited about that, and now more members of her family want to be more active in the church so we are excited to keep working with them
Sunday: One of our investigators and less active members came to church this week! It was really awesome. All the new missionaries also had to go up and give a testimony, it was a little scary doing it in Spanish but the ward was really nice. Sunday night was my favorite night tracting this week. Right before we went to the area we planned to go to we got a referral from church headquarters, for the exact area we were going to so we decided to go there first. When we got there the man was standing outside his house and was really excited when he saw us. He told us that he had gone to the DC visitor center and had wanted to learn more about the church so he gave them his information, but never heard back from them for a while. For some reason it took us a while for the referral to show up in our system. He was really excited to learn more so we taught him a little bit, and he is coming to church next Sunday!

Tuesday: I had to give a workshop in district meeting. That night we went to a Peruvian restaurant with a member, and went tracting in an area we had not been to before. It was really good! we were able to teach two lessons that night and had a lot of success!
This week was really good we found a lot of potential investigators and were able to meet with some of our old investigators and less active members!
