so the good news is that our investigator is going to get baptized this saturday!!!! the bad thing is that he is going to be in santiago the whole week and he comes home saturday in the morning so we are going to have to have constant contact with him the whole week so that he is ok. statan likes to work on people the week before their baptism. we are way excited for him and we know that the Lord has really blessed him.
also we have been working a lot with a family in the ward and it has been paying off. they have been to church several times and they have a 9 year old girl and she wants to get baptized. they had an interview with the branch pres. and both he and we think that we need to baptize the girl. we have taught her everything except for tithing so we are doing pretty good. we have a date planned for the 17th. it should be good. they just have to come to church this sunday and we are good. the family loves me for my b-day they gave me a beautiful gift. i couldn’t believe it. especially because they aren’t the richest family on the planet. i felt super bad taking it but they said that they had it custom made and it was already too late. it made my day.
so this week was a really good week with my new comp. i really like him. he is a humble guy that has a lot of patience. he is going to be a great zone leader when he figures out what he is doing. i feel like we are teaching more with the spirit and we work pretty well together. I just feel bad because i feel like i’m not going to have enough time to teach him everything because we still have to do a bunch of interchanges with the zone.
this week we have a 4 hour training with president harris planned. the whole conference is going to be about how we can repent on the mission and how we can teach repentance better. i talk to other people that already had the training and they said that president was amazing. i’m pretty excited to hear what he has to say. one thing about pres. harris is that he knows soooooo much doctrine.
i love you guys and i cant wait to see you soon. it is going to be a glorious day. the church is true and God loves you.
