What an awesome week! Elder Peterson and I have had a ton of work and it has been a lot of fun.
Happy Independence Day, Mexico! That was one of the best parts of the week. The ward put on an activity and everyone had to bring something. So, Elder Peterson and I decided to make no-bake cookies. They turned pretty good and now everyone wants the recipe. We had to go home before the activity was over but the members had a lot of fun and there were a lot of investigators as well.
The best news is that we are going to have a baptism this week. Jonathan is super excited and even though he is only nine years old, he is a great example to his family. He came to clean the church this Saturday by himself. He was the only one there with the Bishop when we showed up. It is going to be a big help to his family that he is getting baptized.
We also have another baptism planned for the 11th of October. He is Jonathan’s cousin Luis. He just came to church for the first time this week but he is really excited as well.
This week, I also gave my first official English Class in Mexico. It was just the first week so it was a little rough but as we get more organized, we think it well become pretty successful.
We also saw some of our hard work pay off this week. We have been visiting a recent convert named Krystell a lot because she is the only member of her family. Her brother Esteban has been really closed off. The first thing she said to me was, “I don’t like your church.”
Anyway, we have visited them, helped them with homework and done services as well. Finally, they are starting to listen. Nancy and Esteban both went to the activity on Wednesday and English class. We are hoping that this week they will go to church with us.
Well, hope you are all doing great!
Love you all! Talk to you soon
