Numero 58 ~ New Puerto Branch ~ Camera broke

Hey fam! Another good week down here in Puerto Cabezas.
This week was pretty cool. This week we worked really hard and found some really cool people. We were able to help a lot of our investigadors progress more in the gospel. We found a super cool family this week and were helped them commit to a bautismal date to prepare for but the guy went out to the sea to work which is always a downer. That is the worst part about here is the dudes all go out to work in the sea and they dont come back for weeks at a time. We just have to adjust though.
The baptism we were going to have fell through. The girl was too scared of what her family was going to say if she did. She knew she had to do it and that this was the truth. I understand how she feels but the most important person in our life should be Jesus Christ.
At church this week we had 9 investigadors in church. It was really good because the most of the ones that went are the ones that we had dates with. Its the best feeling seeing your investigadors show up to church. It is a step of faith for them and it helps them grow closer to the Lord.
On Sunday, I found out that I got changes. I was super suprised because I was almost certain that I was going to stay in my area. I got moved the the Puerto Branch. My new comps name is Elder Maughan. He is a gringo and he is a cool dude. Actually last November, we did divisions together for one day and now we are comps. Another cool thing is that my new house is wayyyyy better than my last house that I had. Its always weird being changed because now I have to start all with new faces and new people. I am excited though it is going to be awesome.
One thing I learned this week is that we as missionaries need to be direct with the poeple here. I learned that if the people dont know why we are here and if we dont invite to act and promise them the blessings that God is willing to give us, no one will do anything and their faith wont grow. We need to be bold and help the people learn more about the Lord and to be able to enjoy the same blessings he does.
Thats what I got for you guys this week. A new start. I am excited. I will let you guys know how it goes this next week!
Love you all!
Elder Sherle
