Week 77

cannot believe that it is almost christmas! how crazy! just feels like it was a week ago in the office when i was skyping you guys!!

but yea we had a pretty good week! everything went well with zone conference! (pres didnt kill anyone!) but heh gave some very interesting counsel of how we need to just baptize everyone and rush them to be baptised, even if the do inactivate afterwards. very interesting, but it makes sence for this area. 

so with jano and jasmine..... we realized that they have a son..... that was always hiding in his room, and is 8..... so yea he now also is getting baptized on the 7th! his name is alejandro, he's just super she but now we're buddies! and with that familiy we just go over every once in a while to read the BoM with them! its really fun just helping them uinderstand the story and how to apply it to the their lives! 

Irma is all good! she just had a little panic attack when she learned about diezmo because she makes like $15 monthly sellling used clothes. BUT with the spirit anything is possible! she now understand why she has to pay her tithing and she is still super excited for her baptism and wedding! her hubby is still super bitter but said he'll start going to church in january... hay vemos.

we were working with an old dude that is like 80 and who LOVES to bike. his name is miguel. and we invited him to the adult session of district conference to see the choir (he also loves to sing) and man he LOVED the conference! he kept saying stuff like 'that is so true!' so we'll see if we can get him dunked asap!

and then the 12 yo ariel almost go to church this sunday.... but his mom was asleep and he wasnt sure if he had permission...... but he did. but this sunday si o si he's going to be there! and he just has to wait three weeks to be baptized!

but guys i am so excited to see you all this sunday! it is going to be so special!!!! hope you all enjoy this christmas! and drink lots of hot chocolate! love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

peep me and irma with our hotdogs!!!!!!!!!

Week 76

so it was a pretty great week down here in parral! but man it sure is hot!

ok so this week went sosososo well and there will be two wedding in january and 3 baptisms!! all during the same week! so that'll be fun to loook forward to!

so Irma is all good to get baptized we just need to wait for the 4th to get married! and her future hubby is warming up to us! but he recently went blind for his diabetes so he's still a little bitter... but we're going to make hotdogs with them tonight! but i do thinnk he'll come to church this week!!

jano and jasmine are also getting married the 4th! (no they dont know irma) and both of them will be baptized! we're just working with them on getting the little things down now aka reading praying everyday. but they are good to go! 

and then we found a patial family! with a 12 yo that snt baptized! and they are super receptive! and the son is already agreeing with the idea of being baptized in Jan. his name is ariel!

and then we were wroking with an old investigator from the sisters from a long time ago and she is sooooo prepared! we just have to help her with some doubts she has about what are the commandments (like she thought we cant drink coke....... oh sisters....) but if all works out this week she will most likely be baptized this month!

so i need to ask you guys a favor.... so this wednesday is zone conference. and pres isnt too happy with the zone..... please pray for the zone parral during wednesday plz! the APs told me that he will be speaking storngly to us........ so uhhh hay vemos!

but really all is well with the sector and the zone is gettting better! i just hope that i can stay here for a while and dont get a weird cambio! but love you all so much! cannot wait to skype with you all!! love you all!

Week 75

so this week we were traveling sosososo much! but it was totally worth it because we got to hear a lot from elder packer (hijo). it was sick and in the end he basically said that we need to be baptizing every week..... so definitly made us think about how we need to step up the work!!
after the conference i did a mini cambio with the ap going around to sectors in the zone inviting people to be baptized. IT WAS SO AWESOME! we had a lesson with one woman and we wre in silence for like 15 minutes as the spirit was sosososososo strong! Also we got home late because we were ther in silence for so long oops. but it was awesome. the hermanas after the lesson were like WOAHHH!

but yea for our sector.... so irma is suppsedly getting the hour for her wedding right now! and she is doing soooooo well! and the RS pres bought her a skirt! so she was so happy and excited for church! so we just need ot see when she'll get married and baptized!

and for jazmine and jano we had a sweeeeet lesson last night! and today we will know if they will get married or separate! if they separate jasmine might be baptized this week! or we'll wait for the wedding. but we brought a youth to the lesson adn just told her basically if you want kids like this you will be baptized. it was awesome!

we found another antiguo that supposedly wants to get baptized really soon, who just seperated with her pareja........ so yea we'll see what happens tonight! 

but all is well here in parral! just SO HOT! and we might have problems with people washing our clothes...... atleast we have a tub! lol but hope you all are having a great week and hope you all see the christmas vid from the church! love you all!!
