March 22 update

Elder Kenison is settling into his new area in Las Industrias. This was his report of progress this week:
well we found one investigator named Jocelyn. her boyfriend is a returned missionary. so we've been teaching her. it's been awesome! she came to church yesterday too!!! :D haha as for the other investigators. the problem is that school just started. so they've all been busy. one of our investigators had a baptismal date. but lost it because she hasn't been coming to church :(
They had a good "pool" of investigators when Matt came to the area, and so we hope they are able to follow up and make some good progress. Here's another experience that was quite meaningful to Matt:
Yesterday we had an awesome experience. We were teaching an inactive family who has been inactive for a while, due to a situation that happened with another member, and just as we were about to finish. Elder Tucto had the wife read Ether 12:27 to herself and then think about it. Afterwards said that we're here to help her out. Then there was a knock on the door. And 4 members (the elders quorum) walked in. one of the members has legs that are crossed so he can't walk very well. But he went anyways. and really I'd have to say it was one of the most spiritual experiences of my mission. haha it was AMAZING. The spirit was so strong as one of the members told the inactive family that they care about them. Then he invited them to an activity this Sunday. it was amazing. :D so hopefully I'll be able to remember the feeling I had. And be able to work hard this week :D thanks for your help :D
No new photos this week, but this one came last week. We're not sure if this is his new area or the old one. And we're not sure why he's sleeping on a bed with no mattress — maybe just getting extra ventilation!

  1. I like that bedspread on the lower bunk. Kinda looks like a western diamondback rattler.
