This last week was a good week, we were finally able to work in our area a little bit, however we are now starting to prepare for the multi-zone meetings that we are going to have at the end of next week.
General Conference was great! One of my favorite talks was from Elder Uchtdorf about just going on the adventure and leaving the things behind. I think it was one of my favorites because it was during the session in which we had some interested people there watching, including Liseth and Reginaldo.
Sunday evening we went and visited Liseth and Reginaldo to see how they were doing and they both started asking a couple of questions like, “how long of a process is it until somebody can be baptized?”, and “what are the requirements for somebody to be baptized?” After explaining a little bit I asked them if they had the desire to get baptized and they both said, “yes” without hesitation. We are very excited that they are progressing and that they have this desire. Now they just have to stop drinking coffee, which might be a little tough because they literally drink coffee every single day. But no worries, I know that they will do it.
Another person who is progressing is the daughter of a member who was recently activated in church. His name is Mauricio and is a member, but his daughter Carol, who is 9, is not a member. We are working with them so that they get in a solid pattern of reading the Book of Mormon. After the conference we gave one of the children’s versions of the Book of Mormon, the one with pictures, to Carol. They seem excited. Welder and his family are also doing well at getting settled into the ward so that has been a really good thing. This Sunday they will most likely get their temple recommends and also Welder’s interview for the Aaronic priesthood.
We really don’t do too much traveling around the mission, just once a week we go and participate in the district meeting of one zone. Nothing too exciting has happened. Although president told us of a missionary who accidently sent him a message that was meant for another missionary, so that was kind of funny. The message did not say anything bad but kind of embarrassing.
I also love that a third temple was announced in Guatemala in Coban! Which is great because about 22 years ago one of the Apostles promised the people of Guatemala that there would someday be three temples in Guatemala, so that is really sweet!
Well I hope that you all have a great week and that each and every one of us can find and identify moments in which we can see God’s hand.
Love you all,
