This week was another week of working hard and seeing miracles!
This week we had the baptism of Elisandro Yanes or Chando. I had the privilege of baptizing him and I will never forget when we were waiting for the bus to go back to La Noria he was talking to me and thanked me for being the one to baptize him. It was sweet and may seem cheesy, but it was some powerful words to me from the mouth of a 9 year old.
We have another miracle waiting for us with a lady we challenged for this weekend who said she wanted to be baptized and finally things are looking up and she seems to be ready for this week. This is the last week of the change and I have a sad feeling that I will be leaving this area so I hope we can finish this week baptizing in an area that I have come to love. I have seen so many miracles here and this would be a huge miralce because she has been receiving the missionaries for 1 year now! Her name is America.
We spent Pday as a district and took some pictures in our clothes from Guatemala and made T shirts with those pictures! It was a fun Pday and I love my district, we have been working super hard and we were happy to see that today in the Presidents letter to all the mission he mentioned our district for the effort we are putting forth to have a high percentage of the retention and baptize every week!
Last night we had a crazy experience, for those who remember the scorpion that was in our house, one of his friends showed up last night. I was leaving a door in our house when I hear something fall. I looked to my side and there he was, a good sized snake that dropped right next to me. But we were able to kill it with just about no problems, it was just really tramatic because it tried to fight back, but no one got hurt... besides the snake. Mom... don't freak out, this is what makes memories :)
I hope you all have a great week and know that I have a strong testimony that this is God's true church and that we can all see miracles in our lives, we just need to leave our comfort zone and do a little more, because we are more. I love you all
