This week went really well. We baptized Maribel and her daughter Estafania!!!! It was awesome to see them join their family as members of the Church! We are only missing one more! Her name is Abie and we are going to try our best to start teaching her but she isnt very interested in listening or committing to live the priciples of the Gospel. Its not going to be easy but thats the goal we have to complete the family!!! We are soo close!!!
The best thing that happened this week were the baptisms. We had two baptisms but the cool thing is that every area in my district baptized someone this weekend! It was the first time that we have done that so that was pretty cool!
The worst thing this week is that we had a bunch of good people that are preparing to get baptized and had a baptism date, but none of the 5 came to church on Sunday so we lost all of the baptism dates, and we are going to have to work really hard this week to be able to get them back on schedule to be baptized!
Juan Bosco went on vacation this weekend to visit his family, so he didn't come to church this week. We sent him the address to the church where he was going and we are going to go check if he went. If he went he is still on track to be baptized on July 5th but if not we are going to have to move it back a week. Its a bummer, but he is a good guy so I am not too worried!
We havent found the member that is working on my memory card this week so we arent sure if we are going to recover the pictures or not we are going to visit him tonight so we will see how it goes!
Time is going by super fast, I can't believe it has already been one year! I feel like it is going to go by even faster this year and before I know it, all of it is going to be coming to an end. My thoughts are that I dont have another second to lose and that if I can have another year like I have had, I will be happy for the rest of my life. I have learned more in these 12 months than the first 18 years of my life!
My companion still struggles but I think he is getting better. He drives me crazy sometimes because he doesn't love all of the rules, but I am doing my best to stay patient and remember how I felt when I had 3 months in the mission.
Another thing if you can keep President Whitehead and his family in your prayers. His daughters husband passed away last week, and they have 5 little kids. His wife is back in the States right now with their daughter, but if you can it would be great to keep them in your prayers.
Everything is great here mother, I love you so much! Give Braden a big hug from me for his birthday! Tell everyone I love them! Have a great week!
