El Monte South


Elder Taylor

Fiery Fire of Faith and Trials

Well my feelings this week have been crazy. We literally have been planning all this week trying to make sure certain events follow through. It was good to know how to do it and it is weird being in-charge of it as well. We had interviews this week and it was a good time to know the zone and help them with their needs. It was cool and we ended up seeing a new missionary who came in while we were doing interviews. I think that I will end up in El Monte for five transfers or more now.

We really haven't had much time to do missionary work this week for some reason. We were helping the Zone and with beds and also we had just a bunch of problems this week. It was pretty crazy. The coolest thing that happened this week is we found new investigators called Jose and Consuelo. They came to church on Sunday and we taught them five times this week. In fact they were the only investigators that we taught. It was good as they truly are prepared to accept the gospel. It was a moment where I was able to feel the spirit. There some of the very few who have accepted the gospel. It has been a great experience working with them.

We spent most of our time this week trying to prepare for our movie night on Saturday. It was a cool opportunity to plan. We had to coordinate everything for the movie night. It was a great opportunity, but unfortunately people here have separated missionary work and the church. It is something that shouldn't exist, but it does. We were able to have a couple of families there as well. Only about three investigators showed up to it. I have been working hard with members and leadership to find success. We will see what will come of it the next couple of weeks.

We will see things in the works soon. Tell you more next week!

Your friend,
Elder Richards🐉🇺🇸🇲🇽
