Jan 23 - Mazatlan

Hola Familia!

Eveything is going well here! My companion Elder Soto is awesome. We had a lot of success this week and ended up finding a few more familys to teach! We´re going to work with Irwing this week and hopefully him and his wife are going to get married. We checked today on how much everything is going to cost. We´re probably going to be witnesses for the wedding of this couple too so that will be pretty cool. If everything goes well we are going to baptize Irwing this saturday, but his esposa is about to have a baby so there´s that deal too. The new familys we found are really awesome and we got 7 baptismal dates this week. My spanish is definitely improving and I am starting to feel more comfortable with speaking. The main thing I´m trying to work on is teaching all of the lessons still but I feel pretty comfortable with them.
We had a Zone Meeting today and talked about how we can help our investigators more. I´ve been learning a lot this week and have been having fun with the new people we are finding. We happened to visit Maria Guadalupe again and the lessons went pretty well but unfortunately she is working on Sundays so she said she can´t come to church. The main thing we want to work on right now is getting our new investigators to go to church. That always seems to be the hardest part for some reason. Once they start going to church though they are able to feel the spirit more and they can learn how to enter in to the gospel life without the need of us helping them every step of the way. It is important for us to teach the importance of keeping the commandments and that they know when they keep the commandments they will be blessed for doing so.
Thank you for all your support and prayers. I still need to take some more pictures but hopefully next email will attach some more!
Elder Carlson
