This week was great! A lot of really cool things happened so Im going to make sure to write about all of it!
So we had 2 baptisms this week! It was an awesome experience to be able to get the whole ward together. A lot of the people we have been baptizing are part member families. When only one or two people of the family are members. We work with them a lot because we usually have success. So this week we had two! The first is Nicol, she was the only member in her family who was not a member and it was just because she didnt want to go to church. The other was a miracle. His name is Braden and his Mom is inactive, but his older brother and grandma are super active members. So we have been trying to get permission from his parents to baptize him for some time now because they wanted to see a change in him before. This past week we had a super powerful lesson with his parents and they gave permission so he could be baptized! He is 10 years old. And now we are teaching his Dad so were going to see if we can get him to come to church as well!
So in our mission there are around 200 missionaries or so. And this last week on Friday I had the opportunity to go on splits with one of our APs. An AP is a position where 2 Elders serve as Assistants to President Torres. Other than Training conferences and interviews, theyre basically the only Elders that get to talk with the President everyday. And in our mission there are only 2. So I got to spend a good part of the day with the AP doing baptismal interviews and working in our Zone. It was a pretty cool experience because they usually are the best of the best in all aspects of missionary work.
Also this last Saturday I finished the Book of Mormon in Spanish! I read it in just a little over 2 months and a week. I completed the challenge from our Mission President so thats pretty cool. Now im starting a study of the New Testament so Ill keep you guys updated on that.
UPDATE: I have not gotten the package yet but I called the mission office and it is there so I should have it tomorrow in our meeting.
Love you guys!
