February 2, 2016

Well January went by so fast, after today my companion only has 2 weeks left! How crazy right. He is an awesome missionary and I have been able to learn a lot from him. He'll continue to do good things after this time I am so sure of it. This last week was awesome as we have been preparing people for baptism and had a miracle baptism this week. 

This guy Santiago had attended church for 2 weeks and we had never been able to find him until this last monday. We left him with the chance to read and pray and we went back on Wednesday. He had prayed and received and answer so we began to teach a little more. Then the spirit told us to challenge him to baptism on Sunday. So we followed and my companion challenged him for this Sunday, he accepted and then we realized we needed to teach him the Word of Wisdom which is almost always a problem down here because of Coffee. But he doesn't even like coffee or drink it! He was so prepared. So in the 2nd visit (Wednesday) we got him to accept baptism and then the 3rd (Friday) visit we taught him all the missionary lessons and the next day (Saturday) he was interviewed and baptized on Sunday. Talk about baptism in one week that was really awesome. We also have another baptism scheduled for this week and many other progressing investigators for the future! 

Hermana Rebekah that got baptized last week has been working hard. We had her begin reading the Book of Mormon from the beginning and we went back the next day to see how it went and she had read 5 chapters! And she also told us every little thing that goes on in those chapters as well. But I think the coolest thing that happened was in the Gospel principles class she was given an assignment, nothing too huge really just to pick up everyone's books when the class ended and put them away. As soon as she had said the final prayer she went around picking up the xtra books and almost took a guys personal book away haha. What really impacted me there was just her willingness to take that assignment and do it, it wasn't much but it shows the kind of things that she'll do in the future if she keeps that attitude up. By small and simple things are great things brought to pass. 

Yesterday we went to Antigua and were able to barter a little and get a really nice nacho lunch. It was fun to go as a zone and just have a little time to enjoy ourselves. There is a time for everything Ecclesiastes 3. All in all it was a great week and I hope you all have a great week as well. Super Bowl Sunday Go Broncos!!!
