So this past week was pretty great!! We are preparing Anderson for his
baptism this friday. we met with him this past friday to figure out
the situation and what happened with his mom. well she got pretty
upset that he didn´t come home ontime. also found out that she doesn´t
really believe in anything so she wants to make sure that Anderson is
prepared well and really wants this for his life. I did get the chance
to talk to her on the phone and let her know that she doesn´t need to
be worried. we will prepare him well and make sure that he is ready
for baptism. well on friday we also remarked his baptism. he was
pretty upset becuase he wanted to be baptized this past saturday. I
was a little sad too! but we explained to him that it would be best to
wait for a bet longer. it had also been a week since we had seen him
and guess what! he had read and kept praying to know if this church is
true! We were so happy to find this out! he so wants to be baptized.
We will keep preparing him and friday will be his baptizm!
Oh remember Jeferson? we baptized him in November. well guess what! he
blessed the sacrament yesterday! oh my investigators are just growing
up! haha its great to be able to see things like this! hahah
so we are still preparing Cris and Ekesle. They are such a wonderful
family! They both are reading and praying daily. And Cris writes down
what she reads so she doesn´t forget it! then shares with us after. We
were able to see a good change in them also. Our first visit with them
they were pretty not depressed but not happy. then this past week our
vist Saturday night Cris had done her makeup and just was super happy.
Ekesle talked alot more with us and started to joke around with us. It
was so cool. I also bought one of the hats she makes and sells for
Jane. ITs pretty cute. so yeah any who. They came to church and loved
it yesterday. Cris has a sister that is a member also and they came to
church yesterday to! her sisters name is Quelen. This family has been
less active for awhile. but once we found Cris this started to change
a bit in this family. Quelen and her Family have been going to church
straight for the past three weeks. their oldest son (same age as
Ekesle) got the aronic preisthood, and tuesday night we have planned
to do a huge family night with these two families. So yeah the Lord
really is blessing us! We re-marked their baptism for feb 24th because
the youth will have their youth conference the 18th and Ekesle gets
to go! also becuase their will be a carnival this weekend. So there will
be no one here in fragata pretty much. but actually we are thinking of
moving their baptism date to this friday. they really are progressing
right along and really there is no need to hold off for two more
weeks. we will see how today and tomorrow goes and follow this spirit
about re-marking their baptism. but it could happen! Also this week
the mission is focusing on marking 8 baptisms for each companionship.
so this will be our goal! As of right now only cris, ekesle and
Anderson have baptism dates! So we are putting our trust in the Lord
that we will find these elect people this week! oh goodness wish us
luck!! I´ll let you know how all this goes. Hope you all have a
wonderful week!! Its been raining non-stop these days so I hope at
least the sun is coming out for yall!!
love you!
