Well...we were going to have 4 baptisms this week, and they all fell through. Nidia Portillo and her 2 kids were going to be baptized, but on Thursday, the husband/dad decided that he wasn’t going to give permission. We have a lesson tonight with all of them, including the dad tonight...I hope it all goes well!
The other person that was going to be baptized is Nicolas Albornoz. He had his interview and everything...and then he didn’t come to church on Sunday (it would be his 3rd assistance, and he was going to be baptized Sunday after church).
I don’t have a lot of time, so I’m going to give a quick update on just a few.
Sara - Her nephew, Brian, left the province, and moved back to where he was - Entre Rios. Sara is progressing well. She’s 55 yrs old, and wants to be baptized! She has a baptismal date for the 27th!
The other family that is progressing well is the Amorin family - Monica, and her 2 kids - Damian and Patricia. Washing is the husband, but he isn’t interested in learning anything. The kids have a HUGE appetite to learn. They both have their copies of the book of Mormon, and they ask a ton of questions. They love going to mutual, and they even started seminary today (at 6am!)
Things are going great, and I hope that you’re all doing well!
Note: In his letter to me today, Elder Denton indicated that other missions have gone to having two zone leaders (a companionship) rather than just a zone leader and a companion. Pres. Argyle called him yesterday during transfers to extend the calling of zone leader. Elder Martinez and Elder Denton are responsible for 2 districts, plus the assistants to the president are in their zone too. George.
