Teaching many about Jesus Christ!
This week was an awesome week of teaching and finding new people! We were able to get 11 new investigators and we set more baptism dates. We are now up to 6 people with a baptism date! The only thing now is to get them to come to church. We were expecting about 6 or 7 people but only Orlando came again. It was very sad but we are still working hard! Another problem came up with Orlando. He was going to finally get baptizedbut his passport is expired. He is from Guatemala so that's the huge problem. The bishop in the other ward needs it to do the baptism for us but it won't work if it's expired. So we have to help him raise money these next few months to try and get a new passport. Last night we had an awesome experience! We went to go visit a guy that we taught a long time ago but haven't been able to find him in his house for a long time. Only his wife was there so we said we would come back another day. We didn't have a whole lot to eat last night but as we were leaving she said, wait! Let me give you guys some avocados. She went into her house and came back with a huge pineapple! It was awesome! We've never even met her! She was so nice and it was a huge blessing. Except for the fact that we ate so much and my lip started bleeding ahah. Today we are going bowling so that will be pretty fun! A good change up from the regular play soccer every pday haha. I love and miss you all sooooo much!
