Hey everybody whats up?? Another week down....dang they go by so fast. But how are things going?? Things up here are pretty crazy. A lot of crazy things happend this week. Also we been seeing some amazing miracles happening throughout the whole mission. Well I have a ton to talk about so I'm gonna go right into it.
Alright so Wednesday me and my comp Elder C. went up to a meeting for all the district leaders up in San Salvador...that's where President Hintze broke us the news that we weren't gonna be comps anymore...President Hinzte wanted my comp to be a trainer and a DL in Cuscatlan. My comp was so shocked. He told president Hintze he didn't want to leave...and thats when President Hintze told him, ¨Elder, I didn't call you there, the Lord did...and you will do great. He was super nervous and scared and thats when my comp began to cry a little bit. He did not want to leave the area...he loves it. So we hurried back and packed all of his things. We said goodbye to all the people. I've never seen my comp cry this hard until we said goodbye to Mama Tuley, our cook. It was pretty sad...I felt pretty bad but I know that he has to go sometime and grow from other areas and comps. He's a good guy and he will be missed. I have a new Companion...his name is Elder C, and he's from Honduras and is super cool and funny too! We have a lot of fun because he always says funny things and is super fun with the people we teach. I'm so grateful for that. Also an elder from my district Elder R went home for health problems....super sad keep him in your prayers that he can return.
As a zone we set a new goal for baptisms. The goal is 30 for the month of June...that's never been done before in the history of the mission. President Hinzte told us..if we can do it...he will all buy us a week trip to Cancun after the mission....WOW. We need to get this goal hahaha. But last Saturday we had the opportunity to baptize our investigadore, W. It was a pure miracle how we baptized him...he told us the day before his baptism that he didn't want to be baptized this week but the next week. But me and my comp Elder C. testified that he was ready for this week. We told him, "Hey W., we have a baptismal service for you today in a hour...we feel that you are ready and the Lord will bless you in so many ways." He said, "yes!!" So we went up and BAPTIZED HIM. and I had the opportunity to baptize him...my first time since training with Arriola!! It was a really cool baptism. We also confirmed him a member yesterday....love W! He's growing so much and got a great testimony of Joseph Smith. Its fun to listen to.
Also a funny story that happened yesterday, after sacrament meeting a return missionary from the branch proposed to his girlfriend in church. She said yes really awkwardly. It was actually really weird...I've never in my life seen that before...hahaha!! But I hope it turns out good.
Well I love you guys so much and know that miracles happen everyday...sometimes it just requires a little faith on our end. I'm a firm believer that we can all accomplish great things. But only those miracles are achieved if we keep HIS commandments. There's no other way we can show our love towards our Savior when we keep the commandments. WHY?, because we are ten times happier when we do! I KNOW that He wants to bless us...but how can He if we never ask Him....or keep His commandments. I promise there are many blessings in store for all of us. But those blessings are for the firm and faithful...I love you guys and hope you guys can see the miracles i n your lives....BECAUSE THERE ARE!!!
HAZ LA JUSTO
