Incredible Week: Baptisms, Teaching, Finding, Broken Nose

So man do I have a lot to say about this week. It was incredible.

To start off this great long list of injuries i have obtained in my mission, I can know add a broken nose to that list. As well as a fresh black eye. Both while playing soccer. Pictures attached.

Today we had the opportunity to teach about 10 police officers about the church. It was actually very awesome. Lots of people came to listen just from to street and it was as if we were teaching a sermon. It was very spiritual. It is not an experience that will soon be forgotten.

Speaking of cops, a guy in our ward is somewhat of a sheriff, and he told us that some theives stole some of their police cars but they ended up finding them. It was really funny. He didnt think so, but it was.

We found a new investigator, his name is José. He is 76 and has Parkinsons disease. He was reluctant at first but after his first time at church he loved it. He is now asking when he can get baptized. I am so excited for him.

We also found a family of 4 and have set dates will them all. They truley have progressed so much in just 1 week. They are going to be great members of the church.
A man named Juan, has his baptismal date, also has cancer. He is termianly ill but this week he told us that he is just so thankful for everything the lord has, is, and will do in his life. It was amazing to see his testimony so strong even though its a tough life.

Yesterday night we couldnt find anybody to teach, we went to about 50 houses and we couldnt find anybody. We ended up deciding to go to one last one. Turns out we had landed perfectly at the house of an old investigator. He told us that we had gotten right on time. He had just lost his car and was losing his house and he said a prayer and we showed up. We taught him for a while and commited him to go to church and his burdens would be lightened. He accepted. I am excited to see how far the Lord is willing to take this man.

Last but not least, I had the opportunity to go back to the Cuchilla del Tesoro to perform two baptisms. It was such a spiritual experience. Seeing so many of my loved ones and converts was a great experience. Im so thankful with the Lord to have let me.

I am so happy to be in the truth. I invite you all to seek it diligently and be not slothful.
I love you all.
