Standards of Excellance


AUGUST ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In every mission there is something called the "Standards of Excellance." They are the numbers that every companionship should strive to achieve. They are not easy to reach, but neither are they impossible. For most of my mission the standards of excellance have always eluded me barely. We would always barely miss reaching all the standards of excellance by one lesson or one fecha or something. Well this week we finally reached all of the standards of excellance!!! We have been working like crazy! We constantly have to go on splits with the members. President is thinking about putting another companionship in Cornellá. I hope he does! The funny thing is I thought reaching the standards would make me feel super accomplished. But I feel normal. In fact I am even more motivated to do better. August is going to be an amazing month. Many children of our Heavenly Father are going to enter the waters of baptism and begin the path to salvation!!!!!

We had a cita cancel on us and our back plan was to pass by antiguos investigators in the area. So we timbred the home of Lorena, an antigua. Lorena was not home. However her family was. We met her mother, boyfriend, and younger sister! Her boyfriend and younger sister were really receptive to our message. Being missionaries of "El Faro," we invited the younger sister (Maria José) to be baptized during this first visit. And she accepted! The boyfriend of Lorena (Armando) will follow as soon they get married. Finding families really is the best!

I met some French members in church yesterday. It made me miss French a bit. I wish I hadnt forgotten so much of it.

Well with loads of work and being senior companion, I had un monton de cosas to report to Presidente this week. Thus I may have spent all of my time writing him this week. Sorry for the short letter. Everything is wonderful!

¡Hasta luego!
