January 21, 2016 Missionary broadcast was great!

Week update
This week was pretty good. Nothing super crazy has happened!           Thursday was good, it was a quiet day. We taught a lady we found hanging out in the area book, she's from Colombia and almost got baptized there but then her parents wouldn't let her, so the elders quit coming by so four years later we find her in the area book and start teaching her again. So hopefully things will work out with her! We had a really good first lesson and she is going to read the Book of Mormon, she is going to Colombia for the next few weeks but we are going to meet again when she gets back! 
   Friday we helped deliver meals to older people at their houses. It was pretty fun. 
   Saturday the sisters in a different area had a baptism so we went and taught the restoration while their investigator was changing, but it was also really fun to be at a baptism again! 
   Sunday was good, it was a typical Sunday. We had a lot of meetings, one of our investigators canceled, we had a great dinner appointment though! 
   Monday was good, we had district meeting, which was good. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon looking up some of our investigators and potential investigators. 
   Tuesday was spent doing the same thing. We spent the morning at the rest home doing service there which is always a blast! 
   Yesterday we had a really good worldwide missionary broadcast. A handful of the apostles were there. It was really awesome they talked a lot about the importance of teaching repentance and baptizing converts. It was really awesome because our mission has been emphasizing how it's important to make sure the investigators understand repentance before baptism and that they know how to repent. Because it makes them stay active a lot more often. 
   Anyways it was a good week. I'm staying another cycle with Elder Judd in New Canaan so it will be good! 

Have a great week!
