This week went well for Elder Stuart and I. We started off the week on Tuesday with interviews with President Caffaro. It was so good to see the Caffaros again. While Elder Stuart was with Pres, I chatted with Sister Caffaro for 25 minutes and it was good to be able to chat with them again, they are such amazing people. Interviews with the president are always inspiring and motivating, President Caffaro is doing well and has completely changed the vision of our mission, and it is helping us all a lot.
On Wednesday we had to go to the Area Office so that Stuart could go to immigration to sign some visa papers. While I was there I was able to see some of the people that I worked with there as secretary. I also ran into some members from Montufar so that was fun and good to talk with them and see how our converts are doing. Allan is going strong and Susan is enjoying YM´s a lot.
So I think the best part of this week was visiting lots of less-actives. Yesterday we were able to get 3 families to church that hadnt gone for awhile. I love seeing the less-actives feel the spirit in sacrament meeting. The best part is that we just taught them, invited them, and they showed up on their own, we didnt have to go get them and bring them to church, which means they did it by their own will, and it is such a blessing to see them strengthen their spirits again.
Yesterday Carlos was confirmed. Seeing how he was baptized after sacrement meeting two weeks ago, and last week was conference, yesterday he was able to receive the spirit. He is doing so well and I cant wait until he receives the priesthood and starts to prepare to receive a calling (that is the goal that he set by himself, receive a calling).
We we have found some new investigators and hopefully we can help some prepare for baptism. They all are progressing when it comes to reading, praying, and listening, but most all work on Sundays so we are trying to fix that. Pray for them. Thanks for everything, and I love you all lots!
Love, Elder Nathan Russell Walton
