April 21, 2014

This week went pretty well! We got 4 new investigators that are super good and......THEY CAME TO CHURCH!!!!! YAY! hahaha. But 2 of them are from part member families. Named Antonio (15) and his little sister Mari Lexi(13). They have only gone to church like 2 times. Never have gone here in Anton Lizardo. But, they went Sunday. They loved it. The only problem there is their dad. He's not a big fan of any religion and I don't think he believes in God either. So its a little tough. But they are super good and will be baptized this next week. 

The other investigators are Josefina and Suleyma. It's a mother and daughter. The mom told us that she has been living in Anton Lizardo for 15 years. She listens to all the religions and what they have to say. But she said she has never gone to any of the churches only the Catholic one and that was once every 2 months or something like that. But, she said she had felt different being with us and saying prayers and so she said I'm gonna go with you guys to church. Sure enough she arrived 10 minutes early! It was super awesome to see that. Then we finished the meeting and the 4 all left very happy and ready to come back next week. 

The members of the ward give us food every week. We eat lunch with the members everyday. So we get it at the end of church and we go noting all of them down. Normally, the usual people and then we get to Sunday and it had the name of that investigator! haha. So next Sunday we will be eating with our investigator the 4 missionaries. Now that is some pretty cool beans my friends. That was pretty much all the excitement this week. 

I just thought I'd mention about the weather here. Its super weird!!!! Its normally hot pretty much always and then the next day we have 80 MPH winds! We had a storm this last week that was about 80 mph I think is what they said. It was pretty ridiculous. Also the sun goes down SUPER late! Its 7 o'clock at night and the sun is still out just barely starting to go down. Then by 8 its a little bit dark. 

Also this week is what call the Holy Week (Semana Santa). Ya, that's a horrible name.....all they do is go and get drunk on the beach. It was sad seeing how the people are. It just shows how much more they need the gospel. 

I'm grateful to be a part of this great and marvelous work. I know that it is the work of the Lord and that it is our duty to share the gospel. Always look for the way to share and the Lord will bless thee!
