Week 12 (12/7/2015)

Hi everyone!

This week was the last of the change so two down and 15 to go! Haha!

We had our last zone meeting on Tuesday and we took pictures and a lot of the elders wrote notes in each other's journals because we were expecting eole to leave during the change. It turns out that only two people were changed and one has already been gone for two weeks so he could be trained as a secretary. So...The zone is basically the same!

We had stake conference this weekend which was interesting. We didn't go to the Saturday part because we had an appointment. A 70 came and spoke and President Rodríguez as well. I gleaned some information from them all but Spanish talks are still pretty difficult. Haha! The last speaker spoke about the importance of the Sabbath day which was perfect for one of our investigators, Antonio, but his youngest daughter was throwing a fit so he was out in the hall for the talk...I really hope that we can help Anotonio and Lorena progress because even after the divorce and marriage if he is still working on Sundays it will be a problem. His testimony is really strong so I think we can help him realize the importance of the Sabbath day. It will just take a little while.

Another one of our investigators, Ernesto, is completely ready for baptism. He goes to church each week. He reads the Book of Mormon and he understands everything. The only thing is he says he has lots of doubts. His daughter bore testimony about how much baptism and the Holy Ghost changed her life and how his doubts will be solved through the Holy Ghost but he is still reluctant. I want to try and set a baptismal date for this Saturday and hopefully the Spirit will speak to him and help him know that he's ready.

The other investigator that is really progressing is Erika. She skipped work to come to church last week. I don't know how that works out...I think it's a good, better, best thing. Haha! Regardless, she is progressing and we're trying to set a baptismal date with her. Her 10 year old son, Miguel, is also interested. I think we'll try to baptize him on the same day as his mom. Erika's mom is also interested but she is sick right now so we can't teach her.

I realized this week that we have tortillas with every meal. For lunch on Friday we had pretty much regular American meal like I would at home with potatoes and corn and it was all prepared like my mom would have made it. The thing is that we ate it all on tortillas! Tortillas for every meal. The best thing about that is sometimes the hermanas make them themselves. Those are really good.

I wasn't looking very hard for birds this week. I'll try harder this week and see if I can find some cool ones.

Thanks for everything! I love you all!
