So this week was really good, and really bad at the same time.
The reason it was really good is that AUDEL GOT BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!!!
The reason it was really bad is that Rosa didn’t get baptized :(
So apparently like 2 weeks ago Rosa met this guy, who she really started to like. And then kinda went head over heels for him. But he told her that he would only stay with her if she didn’t get baptized. SO after church on Sunday was the last time we talked to her. Her phone was disconnected on Monday, so we weren’t able to contact her at all. We were super bummed about it. Her member friend talked to her yesterday on Facebook, and she said she is really sorry that she couldn’t go to the baptism, but that her bf wouldn’t let her go. So we aren’t so sure if she thought she was still getting baptized or not, but there was no way to talk to her. We still have high hopes that she will come back when she gets back to her senses. But I have seen it over and over that, "the biggest reason for unhappiness in life is giving up what you want most for what you want in the moment." I have a testimony of putting the important things first, and then the rest will follow.
Audel’s baptism was really good :) Wendy was able to give a short talk on baptism and it was super sweet :) He was so happy and said that he feels super good :) I am so grateful for the opportunity I have had to come back to this area and take part in the progressing of Wendy and Audel :) Now we just have to get Wendy’s sisters baptized, we are just waiting on the fathers permission. He seems to be coming along, but a lot slower than we would like.
This week has been really fun because we are working with a lot of people in the branch trying to get them to go to the temple on the 28th of May. So we have started a lot of Family History. I love family history and I love helping people find their ancestors so they can take them to the temple :)
This week we have put a special emphasis on finding as a companionship because we realized that our investigator pool was getting low. We were able to find some cool families, a family from Guatemala, and then another Family from Honduras and Nicaragua :)
