|Brian and I with Hna Neighbor at the airport|
As far as attendance goes we have been really blessed. We had 11 investigators and the attendance of the branch was 115! It was the best that it has been! It was a really good Sunday.
|Whole family baptized!!|
We also found out that there has been a boy attending named D that isn't a member. He already has 3 attendances and wants to get baptized. The only problem would be his Evangelical grandma.
We also have another jovencito that wants to get baptized that we have been teaching. We were passing by his house and his parents said that he had already left to go to church on his bike so we got there and..There he was! This 10 year old kid showed up to church by himself! It was so great!
We also visited an investigator named S yesterday and challenged him to be baptized the 17th. He still has to attend 2 more times but he said that he wants to get baptized. His wife is a member so we are hoping for a lot of support from her too.
I have loved the opportunity to be Hermana Astorga's companion. She really is the best and she is going to be a great asset in New York...too bad we can't just keep her in my mission! Tomorrow we are going to the capital again to pick up the visa :(
Last Wednesday we stayed the night with Hermana Astorga's family when we had to go to the capital. They are amazing...I can't wait for you to meet them..you guys should skype :) YES WE WENT TO PRICEMART! (Guatemalan Costco) I got crangrape :) aka daddy's juice!
(We got an email from Hna Astorga’s mom telling us how excited Carolyn was when she walked in and saw all the food and things just like in Costco! I guess they bought a lot and then the Astorgas drove them back to their area with the car full of goodies.)
I am training Hermana Astorga until she leaves and then I will be getting another Hermana when she goes.
Hermana Alvarado is training a new missionary from Nicaragua.
They are making a mission in Coban, Guatemala and taking 2 areas from us to situate missions. We really don't know all that much though.
Well I love you all very very very much. Thank you for being amazing parents and an amazing brother! I LOVE YOU and I hope you have a great week. Tell grandma and grandpa I love them too and that I will write them next week.
