Greetings earthlings! Well get this, my new companion is from the Great White North. So we got the change call Sunday night, and Elder Jones went to another area, I am now in Las Cabezas (also known as Oratorio 2, it is in the same branch as Oratorio 1. Las Cabezas is about 15 minutes south down the road, closer to El Salvador) and my new companion is Elder Nelson from Canada. Canadians eh! I mean we have only been comps for about 24 hours together so it is hard to really say, but let’s just say I think things are going to be good this change. The church building is still in Oratorio so it is about a 15 to 20 minute ride to church. Also, Mom, that sounds just like the town where we are. It is a long spread out town along the main road.
Oratorio 1 now has sisters, I think they will do better then elders would be able to do right now. Sisters seem to have a better way of getting people to go back to church. Also, the sisters that were sent out here are pilas! (awesome)
We had the baptism last week for Maynor! The baptism went well but was a little poorly attended because the baptism was on Friday at two in the afternoon, so a lot of people were still working. On Sunday he was confirmed a member of the church.
That is crazy about all of that ice! I forget sometimes that it is still so cold there. I remember last year having to do the same thing. Good on your guys getting up there and takin’ care of bidness! And Mom, the ground woman is just as important. Think of what would happen if planes did not have anybody on the ground doing their job. :)
Also, I forgot to tell you guys but the family of Jenny, who was the last person that we baptized in Jalapa, were baptized. The mom and dad no, because they still have problems between them and are not married, but the other three kids were baptized a couple of weeks ago! I was super excited when I found out, they are such a great family.
Investigators that are really progressing here in Las Cabezas is really just Jose for now. There are other people who might start progressing this week. Jose has a baptismal date for the 16th but we might have to push it back to the 23rd. We will see what happens during this week.
I love you all and hope that you have a great week! Keep up the good work in everything that you are all doing.
Love, your brother and son,
