Semana (Week) 38: There is no High nor Low, only Forward and Behind

Hola Hola Hola!!!

One of the biggest hills that we climb in our area :P
Well, this week has been a bit difficult, but we are pressing forward.  We really didn't have many lessons this weeks and there were a lot of members that couldn't accompany us to our lessons.  But really truly, I feel the spirit so strong in our lessons.  I see these people when we come, and then when we leave.  Every time, they are a little bit different.  I can see the progress in them and it is something so beautiful!  Even if the progress in our area can be really slow, it is happening.  I know that we will be able to accomplish great things in this area.

First things first, this whole week we have been teaching our investigators that we can really see that they are chosen.  And every single one accepted a baptismal date.  On Saturday, we had a total of 9 dates for baptism.  We had some really high hopes for Sunday that they would all come.  But sadly, not even one came to church.  I have to admit I was actually really sad.  We had tried to work really hard with them, helping them recognize their answers to their prayers, helping them to be excited to go to church, and not even one came.  But, this has just been a learning experience for me that things can't always happen the way that I want it to.  Now, I just need to work harder and help them so that they will have the desire to come to church.

But some good news!! Anny, one of our older investigators, called us and told us that she is ready, ready, ready to be baptized.  Before, there was some reasons why she couldn't, but now yes!!!! She will be baptized July 9th!!  Also, our investigator Guadalupe is really really ready also to be baptized.  She hasn't been able to come to church because her boss wouldn't let her leave for an hour.  But now she told us that she is going to leave this job and find another, so that she can come to church!!!!!  Also, its super awesome her sister is a member, and her nephew is on his mission right now....and in Ogden Utah!!!  Its a small world!  His name is Elder Rojas.  He has permission to Skype us and help us teach 2 of her lessons, and to see her baptism!!! 

I learned how to make home-made tortillas!! Literally, only corn and water, but soooo goood!
Love you all!!
