Happy new year

Dear Family and Friends,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Its a new year which means there should be a new you.
Even if you were doing the things you're supposed to, you still have
room to improve! My week was extra busy (not a lot of proselyting was
done) and cold. Here's my week:

Monday:We cleaned our apartment and helped some other missionaries
with things they need to do. We had to run some errands in the
southern part of the mission. We did different things and then we got
ready for some interviews we had to conduct. After that, we got ready
for some exchanges we had to do.

Tuesday: We did exchanges with the Lehi Traverse Elders (Elder Lamb
and Elder Sorensen). Elder Sorensen came with me and we had so much
fun. We had two dinners and we were dying because they were so heavy.
But our last dinner was with a less active family. After eating, we
were able to share the message of the restoration and help them truly
rekindle that flame of faith that once burned bright. They accepted
certain invitations to change their lives. We were so happy to see
them accept that. Following the closing prayer, the wife began telling
us more about her and we figured out that her father recently passed
away and we sat back down and began teaching once again. It was so
powerful to see her opening up to the Lord again.

Wednesday & Thursday: Sick/Preparing for our Zone's New Years Eve Activity.

Friday: We had President Interviews all day and we had weekly planning
after that sooo that was our day :)

Saturday: We had a meeting with President and Sister Killpack because
my companion goes how really soon. After that, we prepared for the
Zone Activity. That last from 4:30pm to 8:45pm..... we had to clean up
and everything so we got home late and we were so tired.

Sunday:NEW YEARS! No one really came to church...haha I am not sure if
they were out of town or just lazy, but there were barely enough to
have the overflow (it usually goes into the gym in like every English
Ward here).


Love,
Elder Ovalles
