Elder Crump

Hey its so good to hear from you guys!!!  Im so so glad that dad had a good fathers day!!  So this past week has been great!!  Being District Leader is stressful, but a great experience!!  What i do is about 5 times a week i call and get the numbers from my district, as well as the names of their investigators, their families, and how they are progressing!  Then after i call the zone leaders and re explain everything to them.  Haha and sometimes they aren't to happy with the numbers for example 2 elders in my district only had 85 contacts and they were like why, what happened, what can you do to help them, and all that jazz haha so i take a lot of heat, but not too bad!! haha  because our district is awesome, and we are all doing great!! haha every Tuesday i have to do a training on how we can improve and i teach lessons form PMG and from the 8 principles of the mission!  My first one went great i taught about how we need to use the holy ghost in our teaching.  How we can prepare to receive the holy ghost, how we obtain it, and furthermore teach with it.  also the importance of teaching what is the holy ghost, so that your investigators know that what they are feeling is the answer from god, the holy ghost.  It went great, then we did some practices, in asking questions, and listening to the holy ghost.  It turned out to be ok!  Heavenly Father defiantly was helping me out there!! I was so nervous, but i was comforted and all went well!!
So things are going great!  Daniel is rocking it!! He is more and more like a missionary everyday!!  Cant wait for the 28th of July!!!  Dayanna´s family is doing great because her family lives in another area, we set up for other missionaries to teach them!!  So This week Leo came to church, before the sacrament this time!!!!  It was awesome!!  But we are seriously having problems with committing him to a date.  We keep setting goals but he says he needs to wait.  So we have been really praying about him, and we teach what we think he needs to know, and he always comes up with another excuse!!  So we asked him to pray about the 14 of july and when we returned, he said he received his answer, and the 14 is the right day, but then said that god told him to wait.  He is so ready, i just think he is afraid.  Please pray for him to commit to a date.  He wants to be baptized so bad, and has gone through his repentance and has passed his interviews.  He needs help right now in knowing that this is the right decision, and he doesnt need to have fear.
So this week we have been working with the ward like crazy and we are getting tons of references!! Its so great!!  We had a bunch of ward activities in the ward contisuyo, and through it we gained some more contacts!!  Plus because we had ward conference, we had 100 people in the chapel on sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was so great!!!! haha thats 10 times more than my first day here!! haha
