It's Crazy Hot!!!

hello hello!! We had a swell week here this week. It has been CRAZY hot though! We´ve been visiting inactives like crazy being that there are about 500 in our ward! Zone conference was really interesting. We talked about being testifying and challenging missionaries. President is really wanting us to be bolder than ever and to go after it. Our companionship had some of the best numbers of december. President told us that 30% of the missionaries are baptizing 70%! there were a few companionships that pitiful numbers. Their numbers for the month were weekly numbers for many! We are teaching an awesome couple right now, Antonia and Railma! Antonio is a member that was inactive for more than 5 years and Railma is not a member. We asked a member at lunch 2 weeks ago if there was anyone close by that we could visit and she referred them! We´ve been teaching them ever since. They went to church these last 2 sundays and are hitting it off quite well with the members. I grabbed all of their info yesterday so that we can marry them civilly! As soon as they are married, she will be baptized! 3rd couple that i´ll marry in the mission! Antonio is so excited about coming back to church and being an active member. Our FHEs at members´ houses are giving us a lot of success! We are also teaching a man, Cristino, who is a dad of a missionary of the ward. Hopefully we can baptize him before his son gets home! My companion is doing a lot better recently. He was way nervous the first week, but is starting to settle in. He never questions what i do though which is good. I´ve been teaching him a little of what i learned with every companion that i´ve had. I´m glad that i had a good trainer though and that he was patient with me. Hopefully we can get a few baptisms here in a bit! Thats about it for this week though, love yall!!
