Elder Pedro: New Companion and a Baptism!

Hey Everybody!
It was a great week. We had a baptism! Gen our new investigator wanted to get baptized so we planned it all out and did it. It went so smoothly. We also set one of our investigators named Emily with a Baptismal Date. Saturday we had transfers and I am staying in Arvada for my 4th transfer. I am training a new Zone Leader named Elder Rupper. He is from Pennsylvania. He has Cystic Fibrosis so he has to wear a vest every morning and night and he takes about 50 pills a day! The weather has been so nice over here.  I am excited for this transfer! Today is my 17 month mark. <p>

Arvada, Arvada & Arvada

It was a hot week. We received some pretty good rain too. Our mission has really been pushing 'Just Serve' Because we are one of the pilot missions using it. A couple of weeks ago we volunteered at a festival and helped festival goers sort their trash. The City of Arvada wrote back and said that we are the best volunteers they have ever had! 6 of us spent Saturday morning painting the home of an elderly person. It was so fun. We also volunteer at a food bank every week. We are teaching a girl named Gen, she is Chinese. She has come to church the past 2 weeks. We taught her three times this week! She really wants to learn, it is so legit. This is the last week of the transfer and I am pretty sure that my companion is going to be the new A.P so we will see what happens.

What a great week. It rained quite a bit here. The weather has finally risen, it was in the 80s today! Mothers day was great. I got to talk to my Mom, it was a weird feeling because it is the last time I get to talk to her before I go home. It was good to hear from my family though. One of my recent converts wanted to talk to my Mom so I let her talk to her for a couple of minutes. We found a new investigator named Gen, she is Chinese and her boyfriend is a member. She came to church along with the two Brazilians. There have been 20 or so new people in our ward the last couple of weeks, there is a huge group doing summer sells out here. We have a pretty good week planned. We have zone conference on Wednesday in Boulder and a couple of investigator lessons. We taught a lot of Less-Active lessons this past week. I haven't worked with much L.A's on my mission but I think we are going to try and work with more.

Elder Pedro: New Mission Leader Council


This week went by very fast. Are two main investigators were both out of town this week so we weren't able to meet with them.We went on exchanges with the A.Ps on Wednesday. The sisters started fighting again while they were down here. We had to cancel district meeting it is getting pretty annoying. On Friday we had the first ever Mission Leader Council, It replaces the Zone Leader Council and sisters are now invited to sit on the council. It was pretty sweet. On Sunday, we had two Brazilians show up to sacrament meeting they aren't members but took English lessons from Elders in Brazil, We are going to start teaching them soon. My companion and I have been sick the past couple of days and we haven't gotten too much done.
