Happy Easter (Almost)

Hi Family!

We had an interesting week. The work was a little slow because everyone has left for vacations, but still working hard to find people to teach. 

Our investigator attended a baptism this past Saturday, as well as the Women`s Broadcast--two wonderful experiences for her. She has been progressing well and wants to be baptized, but is still battling to quit smoking. We try to call her constantly to encourage her. 

I enjoyed watching the Women`s conference. I had never heard the new song about families in English (in Spanish, yes). It is very beautiful. I enjoyed the messages about the family. Even in very family-oriented places like Mexico, the family is under attack.

Looking forward to General Conference, hoping and praying for our investigators to progress, and enduring. 

Have a wonderful week

Hi Family

I hope that Daniel`s wedding was a wonderful experience. I am glad to hear that the open house went well. 

We have had a great deal of success in finding people to teach this week. One lady came up to us and said something like, "Sisters! Hi! Can you come and teach me? I have cereal for you". Surprised, we entered her house and agreed to teach her. We learned that her husband had passed away and that recently her neighbor, a dear friend had also passed away. She expressed feelings of loneliness and feeling distant from God. We hope to help her the best that we can. She has received missionary lessons in the past and has family members in the church from a different ward. 

I hope that the Lord will help her.

I look forward to the women`s conference and the sessions of General Conference coming up. I hope that I can learn something new that will help the work.

Have a wonderful week,

Hi Family

Hi everyone,

It´s been a wonderful week, visiting more people and teaching more people about the gospel. 

We contacted a less-active sister and her daughter (19) on Saturday. They expressed desire to return to church draw near to God. It seemed like they had a positive experience at church this Sunday. We hope to help them as much as we can. 

We have found new people to teach this week. One lady that we taught for the first time told us that she would like to be baptized along with her daughter and that she knows that is the right thing to do. Unfortunately, we only have the chance to teach her once a week, but we will try to help her progress the best that we can. 

I am working hard to focus on the work in these last few months of my mission. There are still things to learn, teachings to apply, hearts to fill and people to find. The work moves forward. 

It´s sad that I won´t be present for the wedding, but on the upside I have many other things to think and worry about as far as missionary work is concerned. 

There is such a great potential for success and such a hope for miracles that I will be completely occupied .

(until May 27th)

Hey Everyone

This week has been quite incredible. I was moved to a new area with a new companion. My new area is incredible. Amazing. Wonderful. Inspiring. Why? Many reasons.

Number 1: We live directly in front of the church building. (Or better said, We live in front of an LDS powerhouse stake center with a church attendance of about 150-200.) This means that we can regularly teach people in the church and we don´t have to take a 40 minute bus ride to attend our district meetings every Monday night.

Number 2: This area is filled with people. Many of whom are receptive to the gospel message. Lots of families. Humble people. Full of love and desires to learn. We are teaching two people who are on the serious road to baptism. If all goes well, one will be baptized this Saturday. 

Number 3: We have a washing machine. No words can properly express the excitement that a certain Sister Schuetz experienced while (for the first time in a long time) using a well-working device to wash clothes.

Number 4: The members are incredible. They care about missionary work. They support us the best they can. They help us in many aspects of the work. 

My companion is also an incredible missionary. She has a short time in the mission field, but she is an excellent teacher and a caring person. 

We will have success :)

Have a wonderful week

Hi Everyone, hope all is well

We had interesting things happen this week. A lady approached us as we were teaching an investigator and told us that she would like to learn more. She explained that she had just moved into our area and she had been listening to the sister missionaries in her old home. She has family who are members of the church, who encouraged her to listen to the missionaries. She has attended church and loved the experience. She has been trying to quit drinking and the sister missionaries have been a great help. She is considering being baptized. She came with us to church yesterday.

Another lady approached us with great interest as well. She told us "Tengo sed a conocer" (I´m thirsty to know). We put an appointment to visit her this week. I hope that she will learn and accept the gospel as well. I know that God has placed these people in our path for a purpose and I hope to help the best I can.

I was informed yesterday that I will be transferred to a new area. It seems a bit quick to leave, but I trust that the Lord knows best. 

Have a wonderful week!
