This week we baptized a man who had been attending church for about 6 years. Many missionaries have asked him to get baptized and I guess he was ready for us. We talked with him about his doubts and turns out he just didn´t understand the law of tithing and he didn´t want to give talks because his eyes are bad. We sorted those problems out and now he has the Holy Ghost as a constant companion in his life. It was great because two of his younger children are already baptized. At the baptism we had about 10 investigators show up too! At church the next day we about 7 investigators. This Saturday we are going to have 2 baptisms! A girl and her younger brother (Raquel and Luis). There are brothers too but they still need to go to church and the parents need to get married. It´s very rare to find two people living together who are married here.
I´m doing well. We don´t really get breaks so I´m working pretty hard. We are working with the members more and this really speeds up the work. I don´t have too much to say this week and next week I will send pictures.
