October 22, 2012

Well, we baptized someone!  Yes!  It all went really well. It was kind of hectic getting ready for it because we had the whole thing planned, then we found out Wednesday that she had got a job and couldn't be baptized Saturday night.  So we had to change it to the morning and we had to replan almost everything because we were going to have a joint baptism with Elder Evans and Elder Cisneros.  But it all went well.  She came, ward members came, the talks were good, the font was clean (there were cockroaches in it last sunday), and our musical number went well.  Me, Elder Heath, Elder Brighton, and Elder Evans sang I like to look for rainbows or whatever that song is called and I played guitar.  It was cool.  Also, G asked me to baptize her, so that was pretty exciting!  She's doing great.  She already has visiting teachers and they are going to give her a calling this week.  Love this ward!  

Other than that, this week was kind of rough.  I was on divisions with Elder Sosa Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and we took turns being in my area and then in his.  It kind of threw off our rhythm a little bit.  I don't have a lot of time, but basically, we had to drop everyone but I because nobody is progressing anymore.  We'll still visit the N family and M about once a week, but we've already taught them everything and they just need to act on it now.  

We did get a sweet referral this week from a member family.  His name is C and he works as the Guard to this little gated community where these members live.  He met with the missionaries about 15 years ago, but then he moved and hasn't had anything to do with the church since.  But his life has taken a turn for the worse and he's ready to change.  He came to church this week and we have a baptismal date for him for Nov. 3, Elder Heath's last full day.  Loco.  

I love you all!  Next week I'll try to send pictures of the baptism!  Be good!  I'm doing great and this is going to be a great week.  Pray for us to be able to find new people to teach.  Hasta luego!
