El Senor es un Senor de milagros!

This week has been super good. I can say this has been one of my favorite transfers. Helping people prepare for baptism is one of the coolest things ever! 

Also Jesica, Fransisco, Desitny, and Jesse are all going to be baptized this Saturday! I ask you to keep all of them in your prayers, especially Fransisco as he is quitting smoking that he can have the strength to resist the temptation.

We have had a lot of good lessons with them this week. They are so prepared it’s crazy. Jesica is always asking questions, and the kids too love to read and ask questions. They are so great! And they feed us too!

We also had a super good zone conference this week where we learned how to be more effective and work with the members. My favorite part in it was when President talked about how it’s never too late to change. If you have maybe not been the person you should be, it’s never too late to become that person

Saturday was awesome because I got to attend the baptism of the last of the Molina’s kids. Rodrigo finally got baptized! Now in August they will go to the temple and be sealed! 

Sunday was great. I know the lessons that were prepared, were guided by the spirit, because the teachers talked about things that we were going to teach Jesica and Fransisco later that day. So it helped a lot! 

This is the Lords work; I know that for sure!

Woah, las cosas van super bien!

So this week has been super awesome! We have a total of 5 people on date, and we had another 5 investigators at church. And on top of that we had a few hard hearted less actives at church as well! It was a very fulfilling day yesterday!

Jesica and Fransisco and their kids are going well! We taught them the plan of salvation and took a member we don’t usually take, however, the member is a fireball! Even though he didn’t serve a mission, it seemed like he did! 

A miracle we had was after English class one of the students that has been coming for a while asked us, "Can I have a Book of Mormon?" I was like, "SURE, but where did you hear about the BOM?" and she was like "I’m a member, I just don’t go." So we found a less active through English class! 

On Friday I went on exchanges with Elder Blood to my old area, and it was great because we visited Wendy, and she then came to church with her husband, and her sister! 

A miracle we had yesterday was we were looking for a less active, but we didn’t have the specific apartment number. So I was just looking at the mailboxes looking for her name. There was a lady outside and I asked her if she knew the lady. She said her apartment was 105. I was like cool, how do you know her? She goes, "I’m her!" So we found her miraculously because she was the only one outside!

So I took pictures this week, but they somehow got deleted. Sorry

Wow, la obra esta adelantando!

This week was super cool! 

So on Wednesday we got back in contact with Brenda and Daniel, some investigators that we had but lost contact with. We had just a super cool lesson when everything they seemed to have been talking about as a couple that morning, we were able to answer. It was a super spiritual lesson!

Then on Thursday we had a super awesome lesson again with Jesica and Fransisco. We were able to talk to them about being baptized in March. They said they would pray about it. Then we went back on Saturday and they fed us (which surprisingly is a good sign of a solid investigator) and then we had a good plan of salvation lesson. And then we put their two kids and Jesica and Fransisco on date for March 5. Super awesome! They came to church and loved it again! 

Basically Jesica and Fransisco are awesome!

Still loving being with Elder Baird! So much fun!

Love you all!
