December 7th, 2015

This week was pretty slow. We got our tranfers this week but nothing is changing. Im staying Elder Carver is still my companion and were in the same area. He'll finish his time in this area with 9 months. Even though the work in this area isnt very good, im excited to stay. It also means that si o si ill be skyping home on Christmas. We already set up the famisly we are going to be with. The Illanes family. They are super cool. They have to kids that are going to be baptized next week and theyre just are really cool family.

We didnt get very many appointments with new people but we did have one with our investigator Jose. It was pretty cool. We went over yesterday to give him a blessing for his back but we ended up teaching a lesson. We taught about Joseph Smith and the Restoration. After we talked about the first vision he kind of stopped for a second. After about 15 seconds he basically told us that it make sense to him that the church was restored and that there are profets today. Its really cool because when the missionaries first started teaching his wife he wanted nothing to do with them. When they came over he would just leave. But once he saw that his wife was happier with the gospel he started to listen. And next visit with him were going to ask him to be baptized. Its cool how much the gospel can change someone like that. We didnt get a chance to teach Iris and her family this week, but we have an appointment set for wednesday. We taught Claudia again this week and it went really well. She works at a little shop that sells bread and empeñadas and stuff like that, and last time we taught, her "co-worker" asked if she could listen the next time we came by, and obviously we said yes so we got to teach her too. They were both kind of crying during the lesson so thats exciting.
Besides all that this week was pretty chill. We're trying really hard to get the members involved and helping but its kind of sad how many people say they can come with us to lessons and then last minute flake out. Im pretty sure the only thing our investigators need is friends in the church. But noone is ever willing to help. But were gunna keep trying.
Thats about it for this week. Hope you all have a good week.
Love Elder Crisp
