Hey everyone how is everything going?
This week has been crazy. I can understand for the most part what people are saying but communicating back is a little difficult for me. But that will come. They are preparing for Christmas here with decorations but it's hard to believe because it's so warm! I imagine it's around 85 degrees today and it doesn't seem like it's going to get much colder. My companion complains that it's so cold here during these months but I can't feel it.
Teaching has been awesome! We have 3 baptisms that we are almost certain will go through on the 23rd of this month and 1 more for the 30th. I am able to teach more and my trainer sometimes to get me to teach more closes his eyes so he can't see me look at him when I don't know what to do. It makes me really nervous but it also helps me to focus on the spirit to know what to do next and oh that spirit has helped me so much this week!
I don't know if I ever mentioned the walking in this mission. I had to buy a backpack because we walk at about the pace of a sprinter, or so it feels like. I never thought it was humanly possible to walk this fast but we do every day.
We had one lesson the other day with Hermana Flor and her Son Mardoqueo where he spirit was so strong. We challenged them to baptism and they accepted and I can't explain the happiness I felt after, it is the best feeling in the world to know you have helped God's children to come back into his arms. One lesson we challenged the investigator to baptism and their only question was what time for the day we challenged. They were so ready for this and this testified to me that the Lord is preparing his children to hear the Gospel.
This has been an awesome experience and I can only imagine what this next bit will be like. I know I will see miracles because I already have with the fact that I can understand what people are saying and how the gospel has blessed so many lives.
Love you all, Elder Daybell
