Elder David Gurr at TGI Fridays in Tiloarque, Honduras.  12/15/14

12/15/14 December 15th Elder Gurr

Hello family,

This week has been another crazy week.  It's getting harder as you can see as it comes to an end.  This week has gone by so fast I really can't believe it.  We have been really focused on two investigators.  One is being super hard because he feels like he needs to talk to his old church first before he can make the decision and he is not looking good for this Saturday but we will try our best to see what we can do.  We feel that even though he has received an answer he still is to attached to his old church.  We have been teaching him for 3 months and now his church is trying to stop him from being baptized.  

The other on hasn't attended for 2 weeks straight and we feel she is scared to be baptized so we are going to visit her today and see what we can do.  I feel like she might not this Saturday but maybe this Christmas.  

Well it has been super crazy the progress happening here. Not much new.  I really am just focused on 2 people because after that there is no one left but still contacting to help my companion have new investigators. Love you all. See you next week.

Hello Family,
Wow another week has gone by so fast!  We found this guy and he was great and he had a question about which is the true church.  The spirit was strong in that lesson but we found out in the end he has work so he can't attend church.  Maybe in the future when he doesn't have work he can get baptized.  We are working with another investigator and the work is still hard because he needs his friends to pass by to give him a ride.  We will set that up for him.  Our baptism for the 20th is still progressing.  We watched the video found on with her and she liked it.  It's a great video to check out for this Christmas.  

We are also teaching this less active member and he went to church, but he fell back into the temptation of alcohol.  It sucks to see that but we hope for a Christmas miracle.  
We are also teaching another investigator and we have challenged him to get baptized on the 20th.  We will see if he can be baptized because he still hasn't received an answer that he should be baptized, but he is studying hard and we believe he will be able to do that.  We pray that he can receive an answer.

Also we picked up a new family and they are great.  The Dad has gone to church for 10 Sundays straight and we were able to meet him.  He wants to get baptized but not because his wife is a member but to really know if the church is true.  We also found another part member family and the problem is the wife thinks that we worship Joseph Smith but it's not true.  We are trying to help her understand the church has the same foundation as the church of Christ of the old days.  We have an appointment Wednesday to see if we can help her understand.  
Well that's all I got for this week hope you enjoyed it.

Hello family,
Yes I am still here.  So this week has been crazy because we thought we were not able to complete appointment with several investigators.  The thing was we passed by 3 people and they kept telling us they were busy, but then out of nowhere they came to church and they were more willing for us to pass by this coming Tuesday.  The Mom and her two daughters are investigating the church.  The girls are wanting to get baptized, just the mom doesn´t have an answer yet.  She is a positive person just the fact is she just needs more time.  

We have another investigator who is super great but his parents do not want him to go to church.  His parents won't even let us talk to him but he does and he seems willing to go to church and has friends there.  

Well not much more happened this week but we will see who we could baptize the 25th because it would be really cool to do that. We also have another investigator who is very positive that came to church finally.  He looks to me that he could get baptized the 20th or the 25th. We will see about that. That's all I have its been a great area here and I am glad to be finishing here. I feel like this is my ward. Well, see you next week

Hello family,

This week has been insane because for about the last week we had been training this new Elder Small because his trainer is going home next week. It is crazy to think that all this is happening.  We just helped trained him for the week then we are going to be done.  Also we will find out the changes next week.  I can't believe how much time has gone by.  The moments roll.  Well we will find out if we have changes this week because next week there are transfers and I hope I do not have to leave here.  Well this week was crazy because Elder Small is from Japan and his Spanish is not that bad at all.  We taught some people and oh yah we had a baptism.  That all I got for this week and this computer is really slow so that's all I have. I love you all and can't wait to see What happens next week.
