We met our goals and finished with one baptism!

Week #44
Hey Everyone!!

This past week was pretty awesome!! We ended the week meeting almost every single one of our goals and we finished with one baptism!!

On Saturday we had the baptism of  Carlos!! Hes a really good guy! In total there were only 7 people who showed up to his baptism which is very little but in the end i think it was more special for him and it was a good experience for him!! The bishop was able to baptize him which was really cool because Carlos looks up to the bishop! Calros will be a great member of the church!!

This week we have been visiting Luz and she is ready to be baptized and had her baptismal date for this Saturday but her sister went out of town and so we moved the date back another week which is fine! I just hope that i will be here for her baptism! Transfers are coming up the 12th of August and its likely that i will have a change even though i dont want to get changed!! Oh well what happens happens! If her sister doesnt come before i have changes i might miss her baptism but thats alright! The missionaries get changed but in a way i think it helps them to establish more friendship with the members! Its really important that they can establish friendships with the members so that when the missionaries go it doesnt hurt them that much!

We have also been visiting a youth whos name is Luis and hes really cool too! Hes really good and hes progressing really well the only thing is that he needs to attend church and so this week were going to go pick him up and so hopefully he'll come! Other than that he understands everything really well and wants to change which is the most important part! Hes also got 2 thumbs on his left hand which is a little strange but kind of cool too! Haha!

We have been finding some new investigators this week that we really think can progress because we really dont have that many people to teach right now! So were relying a lot on the members to present us to their friends wo that we can have more people to teach who are really going to progress because they have a friend that will take them to church and sit with them and explain them whats going on!

We are still visiting Gregori but he really isnt progressing very much... Hes reading the Book of Mormon and asking us questions which is really good but hes analyzing it more logically than spiritually.. Hes asisiting all the activities of the church and everything hes basically a member but he doesnt want to get baptized yet! Hopefully his time will come soon and he can gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon! Thats the key for him! Also that there is a living prophet that recieves revelation from God!

Other than that everythings going well! I know this church is true and that there is a living prophet on the earth today and that Jesus Christ guides this church today through his prophet and that when we follow the prophet we are directly following Christ! Love you all! Have a great week!
