Successful week

Hey Family!

We had a pretty successful week this week here in Weslaco. The week was pretty full of things to do. We had a zone conference training this week from President Torres. He talked about the plan this year for the TMM and then after he mostly went into the Plan of Salvation. He gave a really good training on how God will judge us based off our works here, the premortal life, and the spirit world. Really cool. It really gave Elder Wilson and I a good energy boost for the rest of the week to work hard and look for the elect that God is preparing for us.

Elder Smith and I went on an exchange this week all day Friday and some of Saturday. It was an awesome experience. Elder Smith came to my area and we worked. The exchange was really successful. We found a couple of new Less Active people to teach and an investigator family for his area. We ended up teaching this whole family of five people, and the next day at church, I saw them there! Super cool miracle for the other guys. They haven’t been seeing any success and have been super depleted. The Lord always gives us the miracle that we need after the trials of our faith though. They persevered and got the miracle.

Elder Wilson and I got a new investigator to church this weekend. Her name is Vanessa and we taught her probably about a month ago. We had since not had a ton of contact with her. She decided this Sunday though to ask one of the members she lived with to go to church and she brought her! She is really cool but the problem is she goes to Mexico every Sunday to visit family. It will hopefully work out though because church is starting at 9 A.M. now.

More than anything this week in the field will all be about rebuilding a teaching pool. Most of our investigators we are working with aren’t showing the desires or the progress just yet. So, with a ton of faith we are going to work hard and try to find the people that the Lord wants us to teach.

I love each and every one of you so much! I appreciate all of your E-mails. It makes my week out here. Only about six months till I will be heading home. I want to have the best transfers out here of my whole mission!

Love you all!

Elder Russell
