August 8, 2016 – Week 96

This week I talked to our ward mission leader about the 4th Sunday of the month and it is going to be my last talk that I will be giving in sacrament meeting – at least until October jaja. I have been thinking lot of what I want to speak about and what I wanted to leave my ward with, and I’m going to be talking about the Priesthood. I’m really excited to be giving this talk and I’m going to be starting early and taking my time with it so I can just give it powerfully. That’s one of the things that I really liked to do here in the mission and that is to give talks. I love just talking to a big group of people.

It is pretty cool to be able to have the opportunity to be able to talk in front of about 200 people. Thats one of my goals here in Los Olivos, not only to be able to baptize 9 people in this month but also to raise the attendance of our ward to 200 people. This past Sunday was really low it it was 154, but we have about the range of 165ish or 170. I want it to be raised to 200 people! Right now in our ward we are working with the members to help out the work of salvation, especially the retention and the conversion, and the reactivation of the less active members.
Today I saw Claudia, she has family where we are living at, and I was talking to her and she said she is going to Florida in December.  She is going to visit her family in Naples, and she is also going to Orlando.  Maybe we can do something with them when they come to Florida.
We are preparing several people to be baptized this month and I really, really, really hope that all of it works out just perfectly. I’m really excited it is literally going to be 7 points after the whole game just to win it all. We just hit the 5 minute mark on the clock, and we are up, but we are going to shove another one through just to show the other team who’s boss. And sorry but I am not going to the singles ward when I get home. I’m not about that life. I’m just going to go to institute, but who knows where I will meet my future wifey. But the Lord will prevail.
Love you!!!!!
