February 22nd, 2016

So this week was pretty weird. It started off normal. We had a cita with Joice and Guizy, the brazilians, which was good. We taght the Plan of Salvation becasue they had a lot off questions about it and they seemed to accept it. After the lesson they didnt really have anymore questions so thats good.

We also had a cita with Victor and his mom, Vilma. That went really weel. Victor already accepted a date and his mom accepted the 19 of March. They also both started reading the Book of Mormon and said that they really liked and that they would keep reading. Im pumped at how fast tyhey are progressing.
So that was the normal part of the week but on Friday during our studies the ZLs called and told us that we couldnt leave Friday, Saturday, or Sunday because Sunday was Elections here for President. There was a huge riot in La Paz, and 7 people died so they thought it would be better to just stay in. So we were locked up for another 3 days. Thats 6 days in 2 weeks that we didnt work. And we did lose out on lessons with our investigators.
Also this week is cambios [transfers] and im pretty sure ill be leaving this area. Its not forsure but im pretty sure. Im kind of bummed because we met a lot of new investigators and Victor and Vilma have their baptism set for next cambio [transfer] but i guess thats how the mission is.
I was reading in Alma today and read this scripture: 
27 Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bea rwith patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success.

It wasnt until Ammon couldnt go anymore, when he was about to give up that the Lord gave him counsel and told him what he should do. Sometimes we feel the same, like theres nothing more we can do, but like Ammon the Lord will always give us the counsel we need, maybe not when we want it, but when he feels we need it most.

Thats all i got for this week. Hope you all have a good week. Sorry, I dont have any pictures. 

Love Elder Crisp
