Tuesday and Wednesday we pretty much just knocked houses all day and we found a girl and she is awesome! Her name is Maria and she has special needs but she is awesome! Her Spanish is kind of hard to understand but she told us that she read the Book of Mormon and that it made her feel happy! We gave her a date for January 22, but we will see because her parents are straight catholic and they don't seem very nice, but we will see. Keep her in your prayers please!
Friday was zone meeting and that was good! We got a new mission goal to get 888 baptisms for the year of 2017! Seems a little hard but I think we can do it! After that we went to go do some work but it was so cold! The highs where only in the 30's and it didn't help that we where on bikes and that the wind was blowing, but overall we had a pretty good day! Saturday was really cold too but we went to go help out a member from the English ward with his animals and he has a huge pig named Betsy. She was huge and Elder Fainga'a wanted to roast it so bad it was super funny!
That's all we really did this week but I have been reading a lot in the Book of Mormon! I read a lot in Alma and I was studying in Alma 32 where it talks a lot about faith. Faith is so important on a mission. You really need to have faith in everything you do our you will not have success. I have found that out the hard way. Rely on the lord in everything you do, because he really wants to help you but you need to have that faith so he can help you.
Love you guys and hope you have a good week!
Love, Elder Stringfellow
