Hey everyone, 

Just to let you all know about changes real quick they really caught us off guard. Elder Kendall left and went to another area and I am still here in Solola as a zone leader. My new companion is Elder Osuna from Mexico. He was in my zone in Villa Hermosa and I am super excited to be working with him. 

Well the story I wanted to tell you all and our huge miracle. 

Julio Estrada. He is 20 years old and just a good guy. The first time I visited him was with Elder Vega and I thought he was super positive, we had the lesson in the house of a member and we placed a second visit. We lost contact with him and the 2nd visit fell through. We didn't visit him for like 1 month and then one day while knocking doors we found his house. Some would think it was a coincidence but we know it wasn't, it was the spirit that led us there. So we began visiting him and having lessons and he even came to church a few times. But it was always hard to find him. Then last Thursday as Elder Kendall and I sat in our weekly planning session we were feeling a little sad because we had had a whole change and had not baptized anyone, and we didn't think we were going to be able to have a baptism. Then we both thought, we need to visit Julio today. So we went and talked about faith and baptism. We challenged him and he said yes to baptism for that Sunday. We doubted a little because we hadn't taught him much and we didn't think he would pass the interview. Well we were wrong and he was totally ready. He passed his interview Saturday and although there were a few other obstacles he was baptized on Sunday! This was a huge miracle and if it wouldn't have been for the spirit we would have never baptized him. 

I know that the spirit can guide us in anything if we look for its direction. We need to put our trust in the Lord at all times. I hope you all have an amazing week! I love you, 
Elder Daybell
