Hola mis compadres!!
Elder Solorzano and I had another great week!! The highlights this week was the baptism of Alejandra, finding a guy named Pedro, mine and Elder Solorzano´s birthdays, and a tarantula in our house!!
Alejandras baptism was so sweet. Her husband Eric, who was baptized last week, received the Aaronic Priesthood and was able to baptize his wife this week. It was such a happy day for them. We went to pick them up before the baptism with a member and there was nobody home. We started panicking and thought that Alejandra must have gotten nervous and bailed. We decided to go to the chapel and there they were waiting for us!! They said that they thought we had forgotten or something and they didnt want to be late!!
We are teaching a new guy named Pedro. He came to church last sunday with a friend who had invited him and so we went and visited him last week and he said that coming to church changed his life. He had been an alcoholic for 40 years and since last sunday he hasnt had any alcohol. He said it makes him sick just thinking about it!! He came to church with a cane last week and yesterday he came to church without it and we asked him why he doesnt use his cane anymore and he said he hasnt never felt so good in his life. He invited everyone at church to his baptism that is scheduled for december 13. He is what we call a golden investigator. He said he wants to come with us to visit some of the other people we are teaching to share his testimony. We are seeing so many miracles here.
Elder Solorzano´s birthday is today and we also had a zone activity so we made a cake and shared it with everyone. It was a hit!
Earlier last week I woke up in the middle of the night to my companion screaming! he had gotten up to use the bathroom and when he turned on the light he found a tarantula on the wall!!! We put it in a cereal box and when back to sleep and in the morning it was gone!! it could be anywhere.... haha.
We are doing great!! And we are loving the work!!
Have a great week!
