25 April 2010 " The search for the investigators woman"

Well this week went crazy. Last week our mission Pres. made new rules for us. 5 nuevo investigators and 4 nuevo people with baptismal dates. The week started out doing that. We were working super hard and trying to get all the work done and we had a guy that had a date to get baptized this weekend. He had his interview Thursday and he finally broke out and told us he has a woman that comes over on Sundays and cleans cooks and does things. Finally he said she has a kid with me that is 5 years old. Keep in mind this guy is 70 years old. So we left and went home. Friday night about 7 we went and talked to him again asking him what he wanted to do, either get married or break up with her and get baptized. He didn't know what to do, he kept telling us both answers. So we asked for the address of the woman and we would go talk to her for him. He didn't know the address so he drew us a map. At 8pm, me and the district leader went on a trip to find this lady because she didn't live in my area. We put our backpacks in the church cause we didn't want to get robbed and then went out on this adventure. We searched every where for her. Every where! It was finally around 11:30 and he headed back to the house to sleep. We got up at 6 on Saturday and continued our search for this lady. We couldn't find her so we went and looked for the old guy that wants to get baptized. We found him and talked to him and he told us that we could go talk to her at her house all together. So we left and went back at 12 he wasn't there. We went to teach a family near by and then we planned to go back, but while we were teaching the family the zone leaders called us and told us to run some errands for them and they needed our help in there area pronto. So we ran the errands and ran to the area of the zone leaders. We went there and helped with their baptism. They baptized a lady that had only one leg. By the time we got back to my area it was 9:30pm and we hadn't eaten so we ran to the house where we eat and ate and got back to the house around 11:00pm after finally doing numbers we were in bed at 1130. Sunday started bright and early at 5:00am. We have to get up that early to visit people and take them to the church. We did the rounds and the rest of Sunday went normal. On Friday and Saturday while I was on divisions with the zone and district leader my comp was in the area on his own adventures searching for a family that has been to church the last to weeks but we couldn't find their house to teach them. He found them and there are about 7 of them that are going to get baptized this week.

I am super tired. but it doesn't stop there. So today (Monday) at 9 we got a call that we have a zone meeting in downtown Managua with out Mission Pres.. Apparently some body in the mission was disobedient so he had a long meeting from 10 till 3 about repenting and being obedient. Also the mission Pres. announced that he doesn't trust any one so there are no zone leaders or district leaders any more. We have to report our numbers to the assistants to the president. It has been a crazy last couple of days and it is just going to keep getting crazier for the next couple of months.

I am so tired right now, all I want to do is sleep but there is so much work to be done. Time here is just flying by. My Pres. goes home in 8 weeks and a new one comes. I have interviews with Pres again Wed.. Well got to go, out of time.
love you.

Well thanks for everything.
Elder Bloomfield
