Sector: Lampa 1
Comp: Elder Rutan
We had changes today! My ex-companion Elder Gómez is now on his way home and I have noew recieved a new companion -Elder Rutan de Washington. Elder Rutan extended his mission and will be returning home this Feburary. So we are so excited to start this new change, we have recieved 9 new missionaries in our zone and we all just want to work.
It is super hot here. Not like Arizona heat -when your in the shade here its not that hot but when you leave it feels like im under a magnifying glass! Im sure missing the States right now.
My companion and I have created a verification system with the missionaries which should, if everything goes well, increase baptisms, retention, and reactivation. The missionaries are going to choose 3 investigadores and 3 converts, 3 inactives whom they will be working with for the next 3 weeks. These are the 9 people that have the most potential of progression. My companion and I along with the 3 district leaders are going to know the names of all these people and will be verifying the progression and doubts that they have. This will allow us to understand more how we can help the missionaries help their people. It brings the district class more to life because we know the doubts and challenges and we can get together into groups and share ideas for hop to teach a certain principle of the doctrine or how to help them make commitments. Our informe will be sent to the district mission leader and he will be able to help the leaders in all the unidades in getting involved to help these 9 people in every sector. At the end of 3 weeks the missionaries take out those who are not progressing and add new potentials. The missionaries of course are going to be working with alot more people than just 9 but these 9 people in every sector are just the focus for the 3 weeks.
This last week my companion and I found 2 families from Ecuador. We invited them to go to church but they didnt come so we are going to head over their with my new companion and continue hopefully they come this next week!
But thats about all thats been going on.
I love you guys!!
