5/27/13 May 27th Elder David Gurr
Hello Family,Missionary work has been hard this week because of how hard the rain has been pouring. Our numbers are very low this week. My companion is district leader and he had two days where he interviewed a family to get baptized. The baptism is for next week but it is with other elders.
President Fortuna, the mission president, came to see the family baptism but it did not happen. My companion has been sick this week but he is better now. He is back on his feet. It's because the weather here has been really hot and cold.Right now no one is progressing. We baptized all the progressing investigators. We plan on finding more people today because we don't really have good investigators right now.
This week an area of the seventy showed up and he told us that 80 percent of convert baptisms are in Latin America. His name is Elder Amado. He was at a conference for a part of the mission which lasted all day. I could understand most of what he was saying.While we were walking we saw a pulperia named David. A pulperia is a small place like a 7'eleven but different because it's part of someone's house. Maybe one day I can take a picture of one so you can see. If we need food we go there. This week has been a little slow but hopefully we find more people to teach.
