This week was pretty good! Sugey's baptism was really good! Her mom and her kids are members and we convinced her daughter who's 14 to say the opening prayer which was awesome! The whole baptism went really smooth but Sugey said that the water was really cold. Oops! haha
Raul continues to progress, his baptismal date is for this Saturday. The last lesson we had with him was on Saturday, and we watched the full movie of the Restoration with him and he really enjoyed it. We invited him to pray about Joseph Smith and the church again and we're really hoping that he recognizes his answer. I'm almost 100% sure that he has already received it, he just didn't recognize it, or doesn't want to accept it. He told his wife a little bit ago that if he ever gets baptized into a church, it'll be this one. He's a really great man! I actually thought that he was a member the first time we visited him. He even went to Sugey's baptism with his wife, and is looking for a job that has Sundays off. (He's not working right now).
We also have another baptismal date, Danial Lopez, for the 24th of this month. As of right now there isn't a huge difficulty with him apart from family problems. He doesn't live with his parents. He lives with his "grandparents" but they aren't blood related. He's 18 and is progressing really well.
I'm doing great! I love the area and my companion and I get along really good! I love you guys! Have a great week!
Dad: Not sure if it's the neatest, but the craziest is Semana Santa-Holy Week.
(What's the neatest cultural thing you've witnessed?)
Mom: I am now able to work a lot harder which I enjoy. We're finding a lot of good people! (Besides you speaking Spanish better, tell me some differences between when you were in this area the first time and now.)
Holly: They actually understand it really well. It's a little harder for them to understand what happens after death because they usually only believe in Heaven and Hell so it's another concept for them to learn. (How hard is it for your investigators to comprehend when you teach them about the pre-mortal life?)
Sam: No, I was and am super excited! (Was it hard to come back to the same area and if so, why?)
Dylan: It's a little spicy, but I really like it. To help us grow and progress eternally. (Tell me about Mexican candy. Why did Heavenly Father give us trials?)
