So this week was kinda short since you heard from me late Tuesday. But to start off, this week has been absolutely wonderful!!
On Wednesday, we had a final lesson with the mother and daughter (Ashley and Neisa) and it was just so amazing to see how prepared they are!! No lie they are just so ready and they definitely were. After that we took some time to study and then we went to an older lady named Suzanne and visited with her. We took one Agustin with us and we were able to find out what has been on her mind lately. She isn't sure if she meets with is because she wants to do this or if it's because of her kids. So we were able to figure that out and we have been helping her answer that question since. We then visited with some people and then had dinner. From there we had an appointment with one of our investigators and we went in talking about the Plan of Salvation. We tried our best to answer his questions, but we aren't very good teachers and some of them, we just don't know how to answer. We then contacted some names after that and had little success there.
Thursday came around and we had planned pretty much the entire day. We totally let time slip away from us and we had just planned out everything from beginning to end. We are definitely prepared for this week that's for sure. We then had dinner and tried contacting some people to no success. We then ended the night with the English Class. Really good class that night.
On Friday we were able to catch some people home and we also attended a funeral with Agustin. It was very different being in the room. You could sense who knew the plan of God and those who didn't. It was very different. We then had some good success catching people home and we were able to meet with them. We had dinner and then we tried some things that just didn't work out. We then met and finished the night with Agustin. We talked about how things went in the lesson with Suzanne and how we can improve those things.
Satuday!!! BAPTISM!!! Oh I was about in near tears just seeing the Ashley and Neisa get all dressed in white for their baptism. It was a real honor to be able to see them take this step. We had the baptism in the morning and then from there we tried seeing some people. WE had little success but we made do with what we got. We had dinner at the Little Classroom, which is the only restaurant in Declo, and then from there we tried to see some people. We then played some baseball with these two boys whom we promised we'd play with. They beat us 5-3. It was a good game. We then tied in how life is like baseball. It was pretty neat. We then ended the night with a family in the ward.
Sunday! Ashley was confirmed a member and was given the Gift of the Holy Ghost. It was really amazing!! I was near tears again. We had church and we got to go to Primary. We were asked to play a role as one of our favorite characters in the Book of Mormon and how our choices impacted our lives. It was pretty cool. We then tried seeing some people and had little success. We did get to correlate with one of our mission leaders and we discussed the area a little bit and how we can improve on it. It was great.
This week has been pretty great and we are excited for what next week will bring!! I love you all and miss you all so very much and I hope you have an amazing week!!!
