February 15 Report

The day we arrived and met President Galvez at airport

Hello everyone! This week has been okay and it has gone by really fast. We´ve had a lot of appointments fall through this week so we´ve spent a lot of time working on reactivating the less active members.
Last Monday on P-day and we helped a Hermana(Sister) buy school supplies for her kids. I think I told you this last week but oh well.
Tuesday we had zone conference and my companion, Elder Zavala gave his final testimony. He leaves in two short weeks. That night we had Family Home Evening with Hermana Carla, the recent convert who is in that picture that you found mom. We are trying to teach the gospel to her 14 year old daughter. She unfortunately has already started doing drugs and smoking pot. Right now she isn't very receptive to our message.
Thursday we did service for an American lady named Nancy. She was born in California and lived in Idaho and shes been living in Costa Rica for 3 years. We helped her clean her house and cut her lawn. It was fun cause we got to do it with machetes.
Saturday was Spencer's Birthday and I hope he had a Happy Birthday. We worked a lot with some less active members and hopefully we will have more people coming to church in the future. Right now there is about on average 35 members every week in church.
Sunday I went to church and then went with Hermano Douglas and we worked with some more less active members.
Today for P-day we went to a funeral. Our district leader´s cook´s stepson died. I guess he was handicaped. It was sad. Well I love you all and hope you all have a great week! Love Elder Smith
