Monday, March 28, 2016

This week was very very busy!!  In the zone we had a lot of baptismal interviews to do and a lot of things to verify.  We had a lot of success in the whole zone and in our ward.  Alexandra was able to get baptized.  It was a really good experience.  We were a little nervous because she was scared but she absolutely loved it and her mom who is not a member also loved it.  There are a lot of tips, ties, promos, prima, etc, who live in her house so we are hoping to have more success there.  But everything turned out good.  Also there was a guy that is awesome that got baptized!  He is so cool.  He was not our investigator but we found him and passed the reference to the hermanas and they helped him out a lot and he is doing way good now.  Another girl wanted to get baptized but she was really scared.  The first time her whole body didn't get all the way under so they had to do it again and she was terrified.  We were waiting for an hour and a half and she finally got baptized after that.  It was good and in the end everything turned out alright.

Also this was a good week because _____ got out of the hospital!!!  She is finally back in her house.  We thought that she was going to be very sad and down but she is the same.  We couldn't get in to teach a lesson this past week but we were able to talk to her.  We have the first return visit with her tonight so hopefully everything goes well and she is still excited to learn about the gospel.  Her and her daughter both seemed like they still are so that will be interesting to see.  

It was so awesome this past week to be able to teach people about Jesus Christ because He was resurrected and still lives.  It seriously seems like when it is a holiday the hearts of the people are softened.  There are a lot of different traditions here that people do.  They call it la semana santa.  Some of the days they will only eat fish and they have a bunch of other traditions as well that I will tell you all about later on.  But it is interesting and definitely different from the states.  Sunday was kind of sad because people didn't remember the resurrection that much.  Down here it is not something that people really focus on in the culture.  So we made sure to tell everyone about it and to watch the video that the church made with todos so that they could all feel the spirit and gain testimonies and it worked with a lot of people.  The spirit was defnitely very strong this past week.  

Also from this past week I testify that the spirit talks to us and tells us the things that we need to do.  We had an experience that was very cool and we were able to help out a less active and get him out of a situation that he should not have been in but only because we followed what we felt we needed to do.  The spirit helps us and guides us and lets us know what we need to do.   I love you all and hope you have a great week!!!
