Good Week Woohoo!
This week went pretty well! We had a lesson after writing home last Monday with some new investigators who have been previously to church. We invited them to be baptized for, which they accepted, but they didn't make it to church yesterday. It is a little hard though, because its about an hour bus ride, the chapel right now is far away, because the one we usually attend is being remodeled, but it's all good. We had 3 investigators in church yesterday.
On Tuesday, we had divisions with the assistants, and it went VERY well. Elder Marshall came with me to Pradera for 24 hours. We ate with released Temple Presidents of Tuxla Gutierrez. We ate very well, and we had a very spiritual message with them. Normally we share a scripture with the families after eating, but I had the thought to have each one of us share our testimonies. Both of theirs were very powerful, I got a couple tears in my eyes. But the divisions went super well, we felt the spirit, we contacted 50 people, worked hard and enjoyed ourselves!
The area is progressing. I'm sure we're going to baptize this change, we've got 4 more weeks, and we're going to focus a bit more on the investigators we have right now. We have one that we found the first week, Juan Manuel. He's progressing very well, and he came with us to church yesterday, all ready! And he absolutely loved it. It honestly fills my soul up with so much joy. Being able to preach the gospel to my very own brothers and sisters and see their progress is so pleasing.
I love you all and truly hope you have a wonderful week!!! EXITO!!!
