April 28 2014
This last week was so much fun because this upcoming saturday we are having our first baptism! she is so great her name is Deborah she has been going to church in bolivia for like a year and no one as asked her about why she was there or anything. And then when she moved to chile for work she found the church nearby and we met her this last sunday and have taught her all week and then on friday she asked us about baptism and when it was ok that she got baptized. That next morning the zone leaders had a baptism interview and on sunday we announced her baptism this next saturday. I am just really excited for her and really think she will be such a great benefit to the ward here. We also have 3 other fechas for baptism in the upcoming weeks but were struggling to get the 3 to commit to follow some of the steps. For instance Leslie this sweet girl who lives with a family who is active and her boyfriend was a member she is so hard and does not want to follow the law of chastity and were trying to explain to her that it is next murder one of the worst sins ugh! then we have gerrardo he is super good he has come to church every week and we have a fecha for him im not to worried about him he is following everything. Then we have tiffany she is really great but she works so much to support her two kids that she doesnt have time to meet with us very often only like 1-2 a week it is really hard. Then we have javiera who says she will do things and then blocks us out for like 4 days and then we ask if she is doing it and she acts like she never heard or learned any of it. UGH its really hard sometimes because i wish that people didnt have agency haha. Although i know the lord his allowing me to learn and grow from it each and every day and i truly love it.
This last couple days for you all sound preety great i cant believe everything that has happened i am so excited for gracie this moment ahead is going to change her whole life now and after. Also wish boston happy birthday I love that little boy so much. I still think its so awesome how big of a tourist attraction hayden is with his iron man suit and he needs to make boston one. Also mom that microsoft guy sounds really interested in our church you should be the one to tell him.
Now for my moms question about service during the week. We dont have a day set a side for it but we look for moments throughout the week to help the ward to grow and love us alot and the people we try to help out randomly who need it like on friday we stopped and changed this ladys tire we got her number and challenged to her to church and showed she showed for the sacrament but then left and we are going to check on her tommorrow but we try our best to help the people the best we can in any way we can.
I love you all so much and hope you have a good upcoming week cause i know i will serving the lord.
