Week 31 - December 14th, 2015

This week has been kind of crazy!! The best thing that happened this week was that Gricel and Eduardo, Gricel is our investigator, are finally going to get married!!!! Im sooo happy!! They are going to the registro civil today to set a date for their marriage! And she is going to be baptized Dec 27!! Woot woot! And then also during this week we got a reference from a less active that we have been teaching and she said that this lady has been having problems with like evil forces or something so she went with us to go visit this lady. Her name is Cecilia, she was investigating the church before, but she never got baptized because she had to get married. Sooo we went with the less active, and a member from the ward. To get rid of evil spirits (exercisim:) ), its just a blessing that says leave this body evil spirits and then a blessing as the spirit directs. So thats what we did, but before he could finish the blessing, she stood up and ran to the other side of the room!! And she was like, my head hurts, my head hurts! So we were like, we need to finish the blessing or this spirit wont leave. So we finished the blessing and talked with them and set dates for baptism for everyone hahaha. It was crazy though, because when the blessing first started all the dogs started barking and freaking out. That was intense haha. BUT after that we found a old man who is very nice and we set a date for his baptism too. We have lots of fechas, but they all need to start attending church!! Please pray for these people that they will attend the church next week and that Gricel and Eduardo will set a date for their marriage!!! Sooo thats about all that happened this last week! My tooth broke again so I have got to get it fixed today, but other than that I doing good. My companion and I working a lot especially with these new investigators. My sure to remember these people when you pray!!! Thank you all for your continued support!! CHAO!!

Week 29 - November 30th, 2015

Weell this week has kind of been unproductive hahaha. This last Monday I got really sick and actually threwup on the sidewalk in La Serena. I think it was because of the combination of not drinking anything or eating at all that day and then also because it was really really hot. So we just went straight home and I just slept for the rest of the night. The next day we took it really slow, but I felt a lot better. The other thing that happened this week is that my companion, Elder Marchant finished his mission this past week so right now I have to be with the Zone leaders until I can get a new companion which will be Wednesday. So right now I am with them. We also had three BBQs this week so there was some good parts hahaha. None of our investigators are progressing right now, but Gricel did go to church, so our next lesson is going to be to set a date for marriage and baptism. Pray for her this week that she will feel good about the decision!! ANYWAYS, thats pretty much what happened. We had a really good lesson with an investigotar yesterday and he wants to get baptized, BUT they have to get married :P That is probably the hardest part of the mission hahaha. So right now everything is good! I get my new companion this week so I have a good feeling about this next Change!! CHAO!
