Week Seventy-One: February 27th, 2012

Dear Family,
This has been an excellent week. We had 3 investigators in the chapel yesterday. The first is Jessica. She is a daughter of a less active family who basically decided to go back to church. Jessica is awesome. She has been reading and praying and wants to be baptized. Tonight we have a appointment with her and we are going to put a Baptismal Date. Second is María José. We found her knocking doors. She is awesome also. She is progressing really well. We've talked a lot about baptism and she understands that to have the gift of the holy ghost she has to be baptized. Well yesterday she went to church for the first time. Today we also have a appointment with her and we are going to ask her what she felt in the chapel. She believes the Book of Mormon is true which is the key to everything so that's good. The third investigator in the chapel is named Adriana. She has been investigating for a while. Before the doubt was she had to get married. Well they got married and so we taught Lesson 3 and when we got to baptism she said that she didn't want to be rushed with her baptism and started crying.
So we are a little nervous to bring it up but we haven't even had a chance to teach her recently. But her husband and mother in law are members so she goes to church and everything. Steve is doing good but he didn't go to church this week and doesn't want us to pass by. He said that he informed he evangelical church that he wants to take a year break and that he wants to take some time and think about everything. It is a big step for him to leave his church. But this week we had a ward activity and Steve came. We are going to go visit him this week.

We are looking for a new pension again. The office is kinda busy and can't help us right now. It's that the owner didn't tell us that we can't throw toilet paper in the toilet. Well we clogged it. Our plumber came and said that it isn't a problem with the toilet but with the building. So we called the owner and she basically said that we can't throw toilet paper in the toilet. So we expressed that we are kind of annoyed that she didn't note this defect before we started renting. Well She basically went straight anti American and basically started saying things like "who do you think you are coming to this country and throwing toilet paper in the toilet. We aren't in America
where life is so great." and on and on and on. President wasn't exactly happy. So we're out.
The thing is the mission has 70 pensions (house or apartments) and with everyone of them we can throw toilet paper. But honestly we just don't want to have to deal with the owner so we are out.

The weather is starting to cool off a little now! We are doing really good. I hope you guys have a great week.

Love Elder Holton
