Hola de 5 minutos

Todo está bien aquí en San Silvestre!

This week we had an intercambio [exchange] with our district leader, Elder Condori. He is great. We can feel that he really loves us and is worried about how we are doing. I went to Zarate, and Elder Condori came to San Silvestre. Their desafío [challenge] in Zarate II is that they don´t have investigators. I love finding investigators, and we did a pretty good job! E´Leon is quite nervous speaking to people he doesn´t already know, but he is conscious of his weaknesses, and he is working on turning them into strengths. (Ether 12:27). He is a great missionary with a lot of potential.
And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.
This week we didn´t complete a whole lot of our goals. I think I personally got distracted with the work, and forgot to focus on specifics. For example, we visited more than usual of our investigators, but we didn´t set anyone on date, and we didn´t meet our goal of investigators, or less actives in church on Sunday, even though we had our stake conference.

Right now we are working with Alida and her husband Ruben, but we are having bastante desafios [quite a challenge] with getting to actually teach them. Alida just gave birth to her first child, and is having complications. We have an appointment today to talk about a priesthood blessing.

Sorry it's short this week! I´m honestly not sure what happened with the time!

Elder Hicken
P.S.  I remembered what happened to the time, I have been talking with the mission president about doctrine, and I had to look up a few scriptures. Sorry! More next week!

Love, Elder Hicken
