Wow! We are in August already and it has been a great start to the month! Last month we worked hard and this month we started off great with the baptism of the daughter of America. She got baptized and really made some big changes in her life to get to this point! My companion baptized her and it was a great baptismal service overall!
We have recently been working a lot with a man named Juan Carlos and he has been progressing a ton andhe is going to be baptized! He picked the date and everything so we have been preparing for this day for a long time and I am certainly excited! I have watched this guy make some huge changes and have had some great spiritual experiences right alongside him. And as President Markham tells us, the benefits of obeying with exactness in the mission will help us find eternal friends, I consider him an eternal friend along with all of the people who we have baptized.
We also have had some great mission work from some kids here in this ward as they have invited their family to church. One of my converts from this ward brought her cousin to church and he loved it and ended up taking a for the strength of youth and duty to god book from the young mens and we will now be working with him and his family! I love the miracles I have seen here through just a small invitation like that. Our mission President has always told us " People will go where they are invited, and stay where they are appreciated".
Yesterday with my companion we went and bought hammocks to relax in at night before bed and read! I will get pictures but we are seriously becoming part of this area because everyone here has a hammock! We also are looking forward to going to the Waters of Mormon thiswith our zone! I hope that you all have an amazing week!
