Well, this week has not been a good one water wise. Tuesday morning after my companion had showered the water went out, which is sometimes typical, but it never came back! And after talking to the owner of the house she told us that the water wasnt going to come back until Friday, umm what!? That is just not okay! The good thing was that there are some really cool members here who allowed us to come over and use their shower. But it was still really gross.
And guess what!? Yesterday afternoon the water went out again! Dang! Really Guatemala, it is supposed to come back on again tomorrow, so heres to hoping! I cannot live like this! jajaja but asi es la mision!
Contactando con jovenes
This week was youth conference for the stake that I am currently serving in. And Saturday morning from 8 to 12 they were going to have an activity where the youth were going to go out and contact in the street, so naturally we had to go and help them.
It was actually a really good activity and a really good learning experience and mission prep for the youth. They were all really good at it, a little nervous but once they did it they all got really excited and wanted to talk with everyone, it was really cool to see. The future is bright!
It also made me realize that it doesnt matter how old or young we are, how much we do or dont know, we can all share the gospel in simple words, with our example. And we will be a tool in helping to bring a lot of souls to the Lord.
So, we went and visited Rene a couple of times this week, he is really cool and in less then a week had already ready all of the introduction pages in the Book of Mormon and up to 1 nephi 4. He is just soaking everything in and always thanks us for helping his understanding and knowledge. We are still working with him to be prepared to be baptized on the 12th, and I know that it is something that we can accomplish!
Well, Manuel is really progressing! He is remembering so much, actually he remembers everything! It is such a blessing and a miracle, but he is excited and continues to pray and prepare himself for his baptism next week! I am so excited for him and his family!
Walter is an investigator that we have had for awhile now. But we were finally able to set a baptismal date with him for the 26th of December, and he accepted! He understands that there should only be one true church with the authority of God in it, that there should not be so much confusion as there is right now with churches. SO I know that if he sincerily prays and asks God, that he will receive and answer, and be prepared to be baptized on this day. I am excited for his future as well.
It is weird to be putting dates for people to be baptized knowing that wont even be here, but I am happy that we are starting to find more people who are willing to be baptized and to come unto Christ. It is such a blessing to be apart of the Lords work! What a privilege! ( Is that how you spell it? I can no longer spell!)
Hope that you all had good weeks and that this one is even better! Thank you for all of your prayers, you are all always in mine!
les quiero mucho!
