Week 102

Dear Family,
Guess what? we got to go to the beach today with president, and he let us play in the water on the shore haha. We didnt get to go swimming though. It was cool we just got back from playing soccer on the sand.
This week was a little frustrating for me, because we had to make a long trip all the way to san salvador from La Union, and we lost and important day of work, but the lord made it up to us, because we were able to bring 16 people to church on sunday including 4 families!! It was amazing. This area doesnt cease to amaze me. God is really helping us out here to be able to serve and work with maximum effects. He is softening the hearts of the people to recieve the commitments that we give them.
I just kinda hit me though that I only have 3 weeks left till I get home. Wow.
You guys might want to get my bed ready haha.
Well I dont have a whole lot to say, so I guess I'll verbally introduce you guys to some of our investigators:
Familia Palomeque - They have gone to church 3 times now as a family, and have accepted to be baptised, so this week is show time tog et them to commit to marriage, find a lawyer and hopefully get the baptism lined up for this saturday. The Zoneleaders are like tripping out to get us to baptise this family lol. But they are really great. They have changed a lot, and I know that they will get baptised. We are going to have a family home evening tonight with them and some members so that should really be good.
Familia Hernandez - They almost got baptised a few years ago, but it turned out that they could never get her birth certificates taken out, so they never got married, and therefor never got baptised. They all went to church on sunday, even the rebelious youngster. We will see where it goes with them, because they have a lot of financial diffuculties ( they basically live off clams and churria (I'm not sure how to say that in English, but they are like little long clam things as well) and dont really have any stable employment.)
Familia Avrigo (Isidrio) - He has now gone to church 2 weeks with his wife, and he really likes it. He knows a lot of members in the church, and his wife and granddaughter are allready members. We are planning his baptism for the 4th of February, and I think everything will come out well, because graciously they are allready married.
Agustine - He is the grandfather of a less-active member in the branch, and he came to church this sunday. He is elderly and has some health issues, but he allready expressed to his granddaughter that he wanted to be baptised. We will work with him for the 11th of February.

So yes the work is strong here, and president let me come here to that I would finish the mission happy and satisfied.

Love you all, and see you soon.

  1. I am absolutely thrilled with what you have accomplished on your mission. You have harvested many souls from the "field all white and ready to harvest". You are finishing up with a bang! Keep taking good care of yourself and staying close to the Lord. Keep up the good work, and we'll see you soon.
