Week 76 (3/13/2017)

Sorry I missed last week but I'm back safe and happy in Acuña! I was not able to write last week because I had to go to Saltillo for my visa. I'm glad that it went a lot more smoothly than last time. At least I wasn't illegal for two days like last time. Haha! The secretaries are doing a little better now than a year ago.

This week was really good and I'm glad that I'm still here in Acuña. Today is changes but our whole zone is staying the same. I'm even staying with Elder Reid for another six weeks! Last week the assistants told me I was about to be chosen as secretary but President chose another Elder instead. I'm glad that I get to stay here now because we had a lot of success this week. Even though being secretary would be really fun I'm glad to be here with Elder Reid.

We are going to have a baptism this Saturday and then three more next Saturday if everything works out! I'm really glad because everything just seemed to work out perfectly so we can have these baptisms. One of the investigators was in Saltillo for her cancer treatment (which went well and she is almost cured) so I was worried she wouldn't be able to meet with us. We went to her house looking for her granddaughter (also going to be baptized) and she was home! She bore her testimony to us of the BoM and said that she was finally sure that she wanted to be baptized. The girl to be baptized this week is Lucia and the three next week are Carlos, Jenifer, and Lilia. Please pray for them and that they can be baptized!

Along with our success in baptismal dates we were also able to find 20 new investigators! It was really cool and we were able to meet our goal. I think that by looking for more people we have been showing our faith and God has blessed us for it.

This week I saw a Peregrine Falcon for the first time in a looooong time. It was messing around with some swallows and they were mad so they chsed it and picked at it's tail. Little birds can be really brave. I also saw Sandhill Cranes on my bus ride to Saltillo. That was pretty cool.

That's about it for this week. Thanks for everything and I hope you have a great week! If you work with faith God will bless you no matter what!

Con mucho amor,
Elder Steiner
