Lots of BAPTISMS
Woohoo! Our week was great! My district is destroying! In the past our zone has been known as the dead zone of the mission. In the past our zone didn´t ever baptize anyone. Nevermore! This week we met our district goal of baptisms. We also met the Zone goal of baptisms. It´s so wonderful to meet goals. I´m honored to be able to serve with so many dedicated Elders and Sisters.
Also, in our area this week, we found a bunch of new people that are super interested in learning more about Christ´s restored gospel. This group of people includes two couples and a few single adults who all have a great potential to follow Christ´s example by being baptized.
In the middle of the first lesson of the first couple, Elza and Ariberto, the couple randomly pulled out a copy of the Book of Mormon, and a pamphlet of the temple. A few years ago they were taught the lessons, but it looks like they didn´t progress because Ariberto was deathly sick. Now, in the lesson Ariberto told us how it was miracle that he was talking with us. His illness basically was ending his life, and so he had an emergency surgery done. Miraculously he lived, and now him and his wife want to ´pay back a debt´ that they say they owe to God. Ariberto and Elza were certainly prepared by the Lord to hear the joy of the restored gospel.
And that´s the week!
