This week was just great. We did our play, “Te Hallaré Mi Querido Amigo”/ I’ll Find You My Dear Friend. It turned out awesome! Our ward has had some struggles in the past, and they aren’t very united. So we decided to do this play. My companion was the narrator, and I was one of the actors. It came out great! A lot of the ward members went and a lot of my converts cried. A few came up to me and said “Hey! You made me cry!”
I don’t have much time today. We went to the pyramids because my companion has never gone and he is going home in two weeks. It was really fun! I’ll have to send pictures next week.
We baptized Jose Raya this week, he is just great! He told us he has been looking for the true church for a long time. He gets to church by himself every Sunday, and is really progressing. Now the challenge is with his family! We would appreciate your prayers for them!
I went to Palmar Ward yesterday to do some baptismal interviews, and there was Patricia my convert walking in right when I got there! She is so awesome! She has got to be the strongest 85 year old I have met!! She is strong in the church and always there way before sacrament!
I told you last week about Brandon. He is progressing even more! Last Monday he was leaving school and was with his friends when the police came and accused him of robbing a cell phone, they grabbed him and started beating him up with a frozen water bottle. His mom, Dulirza, told us that he came home really upset and crying because he didn’t understand. He had just been baptized and then this happened. We talked to him on Friday about the priesthood and his confirmation and we committed him to takeout his big diamond earring and to not be with those people that get him in trouble. On Sunday he came with a big smile on and without his earing! The part that made me even happier was when I heard him say he wants to go on the mission. My other convert Victor and his brother Adolfo also are ready to go on a mission! What a great blessing to see this mighty change of heart in these youth.
This is the Lord’s work! I’m so thankful to be here and to be a part of it all. He is pouring out his Spirit on this area. I love you and appreciate your prayers!
