Well this week was a great one! IT FLEW BY!! And well I don't have much time to explain everything, so here is the quick run-down.
-Monday we traveled to the capital (and we were able to stay with all the hermanas líderes! That was so fun!!!)
-Tuesday we had cocilio. It nwas amazing, we focused all on baptism and the Book of Mormon. We are reading as a mission 2 chapters a day so that we can finnish before Christmas. After concilio, I lost my agenda... that was fun! haha
-Wednesday: Well after we had been so focused on baptism in concilio, we prayed and felt like Carlos should get baptized Friday... so what did we do??? WE LET MIRACLES HAPPEN!!!! It was so awesome! We got on the phone and started making calls to get a baptismal font brought to our church building, got our district Leader to come and do the interview THAT DAY, and then we started calling all of the members to inform them and to get people to commit to going.
-Thursday, We had divisions with some hermanas, and it was awesome! We met tons of new investigators, and were able to do so many contacts. But not just regular contacts, they were all focused on baptism, and it was awesome! We are really getting everyone STOKED about baptism!!
-Friday WELL CARLOS got baptized!!! And it was so special. He was glowing after!!!!
-, we had the first ever return missionary of the branch come home! SO they threw a big party!!! And the boyfriend of my ex-comp showed up! (he is related to the president of the branch!) And he brought me peanut butter! It almost made me cry of happiness!!! :)
-, Carlos got the Holy Ghost, and Olga went to church! She is so great! And is making so many sacrifices to be able to get baptized!!! She is my inspiration! :)
TODAY!!! So then today we were able to go back to Los Amates as a zone for preparation day!! And I was able to see some of our converts and members that were there in the fincas (farms)! It was like a ton of tender mercies! Like everyone was passing by or going to work just a the right time that we caught them all like out on the street! It was amazing. Tender mercy.
Ponderizing: Helaman 5:7
Therefore, my sons, I would that ye should do that which is good, that it may be said of you, and also written, even as it has been said and written of them.
Well this is my motivation to just simply BE GOOD!! We all want people to say nice things about us, so let's give them some good things to say. Sometimes it is hard on the mission because everyone tries to find faults in us and our church, but if we are simply good people, it is a lot harder for them! :)
Well love you all!!!! Have a great week!
