That's enough about us, on the the good stuff! First of all we had two new ones baptized at the district convention in November! So please welcome our new brother Angel and our new sister Adriana. And a few months later we had a new publisher, Claudia. Claudia is Taby's study. She is on fire! She was found in door to door work when Chris (taby's husband) knocked on the door and asked if anyone spoke English. The lady at the door said no and Chris left. Few seconds later Claudia burst out the door and chased Chris down, saying that she spoke English and asked if he needed help. A study was started on the spot. That was about 9 months ago. She never misses a meeting and changed her job schedule so she can go out more in the ministry. She is a wonderful addition to the congregation. Also in January we had a letter read form the Mexico branch asking for each of us (publishers in Mexico) to make a new publisher before August 2013. This is exciting and hopefully we can all reach that goal!
Now I thought I would give you a little information about our territory here in Zac. Zacatecas is a Spanish colonial city in the mountains in the center of Mexico. Zacatecas is also a state, we in Zac Ingles have 1/3rd of the state as out territory. But since we only have 19 publishers we are concentrating on Zac city then will spread out eventually. Our preaching work consists of a two main components. First there is census work. basically we are going to every house in the city and asking if anyone in the house speaks English. Second is approach work, we go to public places and ask as many people as we can if they speak English. Our CO encouraged us to do this even more, as this is how many English speakers are found. During tract campaigns or invitation work, we go only to the homes where we know people speak English. Then we concentrate on approach work. So as you can tell good note taking is essential. This can prove difficult when the houses have no number or street name. (which happens a lot.) So we have learned to be creative.
