This week has been pretty tough and people just aren’t keeping their commitments. We had lots of investigators that were really positive and told us to come by their houses and when we went, none of them came with us except for one. A few of them are almost ready for a baptism too, so it was really frustrating. We just haven’t had a lot of success with investigators coming to church in our area and I am having a little bit of a hard time keeping a positive attitude about it. We have been working hard and doing everything we can to help them. People are super rude to us even when we contact them in the streets. The people here are in this area are very hard headed and just won’t listen to us. We are going to have to start from new and just drop most of the investigators, because they won’t go to church. I am getting a little sick of my area, but I am trying to keep a positive attitude about it.
The Magaña family hasn’t come to church in awhile. Hermano Magaña has been sick, so they have pretty much just stayed in their house for the last couple weeks. He is starting to get better though. He was having some heart problems.
We still go and have FHE in the house of the family Galan and I see Gabriella all the time. They want to come and visit Utah someday, so maybe sometime Tanya will get to meet her. Their family is always helping us out with the missionary work and they are awesome. They are one of the bright spots in this area and they are a family that I will keep in touch with for a long time.
I also broke my retainer and I just took it out. Can you call the orthodontist and see if I can just wait until I finish my mission to get a new one put in? I talked with Hermana Glazier and she told me that the dentists here are just horrible and that if I can wait, it would be good. If I need to get one put in, I can do it here and then just get a new one in when I get home. This has been the third time I have broken one in six months though, so I would really like to get a good one put in, or see if there is some other type of retainer put in that isn’t permanent. You can email Hermana Glazier after you talk to the orthodontist and tell her directly if I need a new retainer again. I think since you guys are all in Saint George for the week that I will just give her your number to get ahold of you.
I love you all and hope you all have an awesome week in Saint George and good luck in your games Jared!
