Another great week here in Casa Blanca! The work is finally starting to move forward, slowly. Haha. We`ve decided to focus a little less on the ancient investigators who have been listening to the missionaries for months but haven`t been progressing, and focus more on finding new people to teach.
Oh also WE HAVE A FECHA! Hallelujah! If everything works out Maria will be baptized on . A Christmas miracle. We actually found Maria at Church. She`s been attending for a while now with her cousin and everyone just assumed that she was a member, including us. Until last week when her cousin told us that she isn`t. So we called her and she said that she`s been wanting to be baptized but the missionaries have never really contacted her. So that was easy. Haha no but she`s so great. She really has a desire to change and to come unto Christ. And she wanted to be baptized before Christmas, kind of as a Christmas gift to herself and as a way to start the new year. We`re so excited and hope that she will be ready by the 20th.
As missionaries of course we do a ton of service. It`s a great way to meet new people and gain their trust. And almost always when we ask them if there`s anything we can help them with they look at me and say "You can help my son/daughter with their English". Hahaha so I do a lot of that. It`s great and helps me to learn as well. We do a lot of cleaning too and that`s a little less fun but it`s still good. A lot of people just have us come over and clean cause they know we`ll do it so that`s great. Haha. But service is great and I know that as we serve these people they can see the love that we have for them and that eventually their hearts will be softened.
Also I wasn`t sick at all this week! Which is such a blessing because we`ve been able to work all day every day and focus on the work.
I love you guys so much! Thank you for all your love and support! It means a lot. Have a great week!
