I'm writing today because tomorrow we are going to the temple for our zone Pday. It should be a good experience. This will be the 3rd time I've gone to the temple in the field! And possibly the last depending on where I go in this next change the 29th.
Elder Gallacher and I have been working hard toward a specific goal that we set 2 weeks ago. We put the goal to baptize every week in this change and so far we have 4 weeks straight of baptisms and we also have the goal of baptizing a total of 10 people in this 6 week change. Right now we have 4 weeks of baptisms and only have 2 weeks left in the change and have 6 baptisms as of right now in our area. We have the people in order to complete this goal we just need to keep our eye on the goal and do everything to complete it.
This week we had a huge miracle. There has been this girl who has attended church with us several times in these last few months. Her boyfriend is a member of the ward and she gets along really well with the family. But she is the hardest person in the world for the missionaries to find. For this week we weren't sure if we were going to complete our goal of baptizing because we didn't have anyone. WE had prayed, fasted and even made a commitment with God to contact more people so that we could find those we needed in order to complete the goal. Then at night I had the feeling as we were walking by the house to see if she was there, she is almost never home at night. Then we went and she happened to be there. We talked with her and started the lesson, the spirit came as she told us that she had read and prayed and knew she needed to be baptized, but she didn't feel ready.we had her set for baptism on Sunday and ready for the interview on Saturday. It was pretty awesome how much the spirit has helped us to complete his goal in order to help these people as well.
I hope you all have a great week. Here is a picture from the baptism, the mom has on clothes that are pretty common to the Guatemalans from the mountains or the natives, it is super colorful and there are several members here in Prados that wear dresses like that. Love you all,
