Well first things first for sure, Mariela got baptized this last Saturday! She had a date for the 14th, but after Elder Fogg did the interview for her she was convinced to not wait but to go ahead and get baptized one week earlier. It was a really nice baptism and the spirit was there. Both of her kids were so happy that she finally made the decision. After ten years it was finally her time to be baptized, then confirmed on Sunday.
The man that we found last week, Manuel came to church also, which was really nice, however he was about 35 minutes late:) Christian also came to church for the second time, he has all of the lessons and has read all of the chapters in the Book of Mormon, so after one more Sunday he will be ready to be baptized. We just really need to make sure he wants to be baptized. He is one of the people who’s really hard to actually teach, he is usually not home or sleeping. Brandon now has a date for the 21st of this month also, we are trying to focus on visiting him a lot or at least talk with him every day or two to make sure he is doing good.
The ward here is good at supporting the new members and everything, and now it is a rule in our mission that a new convert needs a calling or assignment within the first thirty days. The internet cafe guy is Manuel. We were able to teach him a couple more times this last week and we have another visit with him Friday.
The rain has been kinda weird this year, usually we get a lot more, but this year we really have not received all that much. It still seems to rain every few days, but not as much as I thought that it would.
I think that really was a CDA bus. Way to get some Scare Boxes cranked out! I am looking forward to getting some pictures or videos when the shop is all done. The shop has been the same layout for so many years that it might take a little bit to get use to the new set up.
That is sad about Buddy, I hope he either shows up or we have a feeling of comfort that he is in Heaven now.
Things here are going good, I am settling to having a new comp. We had our comp inventory this last Monday so that was awesome! :) Just kidding, it was actually good, we now have a better plan to work better together and to make sure that we are being more effective with our time and so that we teach like we are on a team. I love being able to be a bit more of a leader! I have always kind of liked that pressure as a leader. I know that if I don’t work, we really will not get that much done. I guess the pressure is on! I feel like that past 6 months have gone by quite fast. I feel like I should still be just starting on my mission but I have already been in Las Margaritas for 5 months. I am looking forward to getting a new area in about another month. The mission is going to be getting a bunch more missionaries in the next few changes so there is a good chance that I will be training or end up as a DL somewhere. I guess we will see what happens.
“And it came to pass that they heard this voice, and beheld that it was not a voice of thunder neither was it a voice of a great tumultuous noise, but behold it was a still voice of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper, and it did pierce even to the very soul” Just a reminder of how the Holy Spirit works, and that we need to listen to this still small voice. Even though every one of our lives is full of noise, when we listen and try to follow the spirit we will have more peace and direction in this life. I love you all so much!
