So this week went really well. We had the confirmation of M. He is really happy with everything and his wife too so we´re really proud of him that he's been able to make the decision to be baptized!
We also had a family night with “My” and his dad “Ma”. They didn´t come to church this week but “My” said that he hasn't had any alcohol this week and accepted the invitation to be baptized so we are excited about that and we´re going to keep praying hard for him! His goal is the 13th of October.
We have also been teaching the grandma of S who is a less active member. She is catholic and at first she didn´t want to receive us but since we are always teaching S to try and reactivate him she decided it would be ok if we came and visited her too. She is really great and has warmed up to us a lot so hopefully we can help her understand the gospel better and baptize her :).
We finally got to visit with an investigator that we´ve had for a long time. It´s only the second time that we could teach her because she is always out of town. She is great and she has friends who are members and she is really positive. We just need to find her in a time that she is available. She has a lot of potential. We are also going to try and teach her husband too so they can be baptized together!
We taught JJ and he still hasn´t received his answer yet he said but he´s going to keep praying. He has some difficulties with some of the commandments and he said that he knows he needs to change but he´s just having a hard time with it. But he´s really positive and he understands everything that we teach him really well.
We are still teaching J and C. They are having doubts and problems with their mom because she basically hates Mormons even though her brother is a member. We watched the restoration with them which went really well and they said they haven´t received an answer but they are going to keep praying.
The best thing about this week is that A said he wants to get baptized! He turned 18 yesterday so he´s going to get baptized Saturday! Woohoo!!!
The only thing that really had me discouraged this week is that we taught a couple of less active families and they seemed really great and sincere but when it came time to show their love for God...they didn´t come to church. I think it´s the hardest part for me here in the mission is when people that have had testimonies of the gospel, or still have testimonies, negar (for lack of the word in English) (negar =deny) the Holy Ghost and what they have felt.
The thing that surprised me the most this week was when we went to teach a evangelical lady and at the end of the lesson she said the prayer, even though we taught her right, with her hands in the air practically yelling "el sangre de Jesus tiene poder" (the blood of Jesus has power) and then she touched my head like she wanted to cast out demons.
We´re in divisions right now...I have a gringa companion for 2 days!
