so this week was crazy. lets see where to start.
lets start with froilan. the best investigator on earth. he is doing soooo good. he came to church and the baptism, making friends and we adore him. the ward is doing well with him too. we even started teaching his brother carlos and says he might come one of these days to church but we will see.
estuardo had his interview for his baptism on friday morning when we had hermana feliz with us for 4 hours because she was left without a comp. the zone leaders brought us the baptismal clothes and the district leader did the interview. then we all went to ice cream payed for by the zonies. they all kept telling me and another elder that goes home with me that they could see our airplane flying above. they are baggy for me. jaja
that night we had correlation with our mission leader and we happened to go look at the baptismal font at the church. we dont know why we did but im positive the spirit promted us to do so. good thing we did because it was under construction and no one knew about it. so we had to plan the baptism last minute to have in calvario in the next area over.
saturday we worked in the temple all morning and part of the afternoon. we only gave one tour but it was cool because she is practically a member just waiting for her boyfriend whos a member to get divorced so they can get married.
at lunch we saw a girl and her family from the states, she was from the guatemala south mission and her family had come to pick her up. it was weird talking to her because she was done with her mission! this week i completed 17 months. so weird.
then the baptism! everything went smoothly, just that the water had been heated and apparently too much because it was really hot so they had to add cold water and we waited a bit so that they could enter the hot tub. that has never happened. the water is usually too cold,....but everything was beautiful and estuardo was so happy.
on sunday i gave a talk about helping less actives and recent converts. im so happy i actually did 15 min. yay!!!!! estuardo got confirmed and it was great! the couple rosa and giovani came to church and we scheduled a noche de hogar with them tonight at the bishops house. this week we tried finding their house but its apparently not in our area. like barely outside and the addresses are confusing here so we never found it. but they are excited for tonight and so am i!
last night we went with a member family to do our presidents plan familia to ask for references. it was an amazing experience because they were all tired and by the end when they got to see Gods hand in their lives and the spirit helping them choose people, everyone was awake and really suprised and happy. we made plans to contact these 3 names they chose and we are excited to help them.
interesting story. we went to visit a member and his family...we were 5 minutes early, he said 7 minutes early but the point is is we were a few minutes early. he wouldnt let us in. because he likes puncuality he said. yeah that was the first. so i guess i will try not to be early in the future! jajaja thats the first
well i hope you all have a great week! love you all
