Week Fifty-Four: October 31st, 2011

This is the email from last week that somehow didn't get sent so we got it this week!
Dear Family,
We had a good week this week. We have been working hard and contacting all the names from the cosechon that we did a week ago in our sector. We have a few appointments set with them and hopefully we can get some more investigators. We have been teaching Francesca and we have been really trying to teach the importance of the Book of Mormon and Baptism. She is doing really good. She just needs to go to church. We have been working on having a Noche de Hogar (family home evening) with some other members so that she can feel more welcome. We also have been working on Erik and Paola. They are doing good but it is super hard to find them and then to teach them. Something exciting that did happen yesterday is three less active families we have been working with finally went to church yesterday. That was awesome. We also have a lot of new plans with reactivating the ward and helping our members realize the joy in missionary work. We also got to have a meeting with Elder Zeballos this week from the Presiencia area de Chile. He came to do a mission tour and I guess it was a big deal. Our zone was asked to form a choir and Elder Silva asked me and Elder Smith to sing a duet. We sang "Divina Luz" or "Lead Kindly Light". Elder Smith sang the first part, then I sand the second part. The Hermanas sang the next part and then we all sang the last verse. It sounded pretty good for having only one day to practice. It was awesome! I'll send some pictures!That happened at zone meeting and then Elder Smith and I had divisions. We were able to teach a little girl that wants to be baptized. The lesson was really good and the mom listened and was so excited to go to church and support her. After that we went to comfort a hermana who's sister had just passed away. We gave her a comfort blessing and she has been calling to thank us ever since.
Well I hope you guys have a great week!
Elder Holton

"Today we threw a really cool birthday party as a district for Hermana Moya. We got together and made german pancakes, french toast, coffee cake, and a weird fried banana thing that tastes like french fries. We decorated a room and had a really good time. Hermana Moya loved it and I could tell that she was really grateful. We have such an awesome district with a lot of unity. While we were there, the office was having a little lunch party, so we grabbed a picture with President King and his family in their Halloween costumes. haha It was a fun morning."

German Pancakes or we call them MONSTERS in my family!!
