It has been a fun and kind of crazy week. When we’re all over the place, it has been a lot of fun to get to know more of Coatzacoalcos.
We had leadership council this week which meant another trip to Villahermosa and Elder Castaneda’s first council. But he wasn’t the only one. There were a lot of new leaders. A lot of the familiar faces were either transferred or went home last transfer. It was kind of different now being on what would be considered the experienced Elders. I have really enjoyed this time in a leadership opposition. It has been an amazing learning experience. And a lot of fun to get to know the Elders.
Well, now back to Mirador. Although we were in Villa for a couple days, we were still able to have a lot of success. Arturo is going to get baptized this week! He was a little unsure during the week. He felt like he was not ready to be baptized quite yet. So we went with him and taught him the doctrine of Christ and why he has need to be baptized. At the end, we all knelt down together and he offered a prayer to know if he needed to be baptized the week that is coming. The Spirit came and testified that it was the correct decision. He has now told all of his family that he is going to get baptized.
Paul’s children came to church as well on Sunday. Jajhanna, Pamela, and Angelo all came. Paul couldn’t come still because he is still not doing so well. His kids are really excited about the church though. We have a baptismal date set for the 23rd of August.
I am extremely excited for the success here in Coatza. It brings a lot of joy to be a part of the work of salvation.
