The purpose of the Pilot Program is to strengthen the Church by baptizing more, retaining more and reactivating more. Under the Pilot we are to focus our reactivation efforts in order of priority as follows: Endowed Melchizedek Priesthood Holders, Endowed Members, Unendowed Melchizedek Priesthood Holders, Other Less Active Members.
On Thursday we did a service project in another ward, cleaning up around a yard and painting a fence. It wen´t pretty good except we started out with only two paint brushes and there were some pretty big spiders under some of the objects. I´ve never seen so many guys be so scared of spiders. I guess it´s because everyone is afraid of the famous rincón spider. But everyone made it out there alive. Because of the shoutout problems previously mentioned our neighboring ward had to go to the church building when it got dark for like 6 days. We cleaned the church and had a pretty good family home evening saturday. Sunday we sang for the women in the ward in honor of mothers day. We sang ``Love at home`` in english as the 5 gringos in the ward and my latino companion sang and played a song afterwards. And then I had the great oportunity to talk to a family that I haven´t seen in forever, but it was a little hard to tell who they were because the video quality was a little bad. JK. It was a good chat, besides the part when Joshua tried to cut it a little short. Maybe if he reads my letter this time and not just skims it he will find out that he´s in it. I love you everyone. I hope all goes good there and I´ll talk again on Christmas. I have yet to resolve the music problem because the files were too big to email, but I still really need some good wholesome spiritual music to listen to in my study time. Today we went to Santa Lucia and took some pics, and then off to the mall to eat Burger King, and buy some candy. And now I am writing probably the longest letter you have ever seen me write. Changes are next week, so I might be leaving this ward. I guess I will find out on friday night. Until next week, Elder Chandler. I love you. Chow.
