I guess here in Vega we are kind of spoiled with the investigators. This week only one of the people who had come to church last week came again, but we had another three people who came, and a couple who didn't come because their baby has chicken pox. We're hoping that in June the branch will start growing again!!
This week we had to make a difficult choice.there was a stake wide activity, members and missionaries were invited to travel to another little pueblo in what they call a 'Mormon battalion' effort. The goal was to visit less active members and find references for the missionaries. We had to decide if taking the three hour trip would be worth it, knowing that we wouldn't be able to see our investigators the day before they had to go to church. We prayed and decided that the best approach was to have charity. We were only going to have 2 hours in the morning to visit our investigators.
Immediately after deciding we went to the first appointment of the day, and found a FAMILY OF FIVE that was excited to listen to the Gospel. They didn't make it to church this week but are interested and accepted their baptismal date. For me, it was a confirmation that God wanted me to make sacrifices for others, and that he would make up the difference.
We'll see if one of these days we get the missionaries over here to Vega to put them all to work!
Anyway, we're working hard and having a good time.
