Hello Family and Friends!
We had an awesome week this week! It did get a little hot down here in Coatzacoalcos but the good news is we had a lot of work to do so we did not really notice the heat. There is so many people here that want to listen to us. It has been great to see the help from the members and the investigators get excited to learn.
So we had some pretty great stories this week. One of them comes from one of the members named Edgar. We were talking to him on Sunday about his girlfriend who we are teaching. He told us that on Saturday he went over to her house to spend some time with her and after a little while he asked her if she wanted to go to the theater. She then answered him that she could not because she was going to the Stake Center. He was just a little suprised. She went to the General Womens Conference this Saturday instead of going to the theater! We are very excited for her. She has a baptismal goal for the 12 of april!
We also had something a little unfortunate turn out great with Mayra and Freddy. They went to church this Sunday and we were in the Gospel Doctrine Class. It was a very good class. We talked about baptism and why we need to be baptised. But at the end of the class, one of the Recent Converts from the ward got up and talked about how hard it was to give up coffee to be baptised but how much it helped her. We had not taught the Word of Wisdom to them yet so they noticed that. Mayra then asked if drinking coffee means that she cannot be baptised. We did not have much time to give her a response and mostly said that we would teach her this week. At the end of church she came up to us and told us that she was leaving church sad. We asked her why and she responded that she had to go home and throw away all of her coffee! What great faith from them. She only heard a little bit about the word of wisdom. She does not even know why we have the commandment and already wants to keep it!
We also recieved a refference from a dog this week. One of the members in our ward has a black lab named Nikki. The dog is way awesome and always come up to the gate so we can pet her. As we were waiting for the family to come out we were petting nikki and a lady passed by. As she passed by she commented on how the dog always barks at her but was very nice to us. And bit by bit we got her address and we are going to go visit her this week!
Thanks for all of your support!
Have a great week!
