7/19/10 - Letter to the World

Hello world!

It is freezing cold here, and my fingers don´t want to cooperate with the keyboard...

This last week was another week of success!

From the baptisms last week, we found a new investigator. Her name is Macarena, and she is one of Jimena´s best friends. Macarena is 16 years old, and is truly one of God´s chosen children. She told us that she has been looking for the true church. She has gone to many, but hasn´t felt anything. (She was with the Jehova´s Witnesses for 4 years) She has also seen a lot of things in different areas that she doesn´t like.

We´ve had 2 lessons with her, and after each one she has expressed that she feels a lot more comfortable with us, than in any other place she´s gone. She is amazed by the fact that everything that we are teaching her is more or less what she´s thought, but she´s never been able to find the place that teaches it.

With the weather changing here, everybody is getting sick. It´s a lot harder to work in the cold, and the rain, but we´re pushing along here!

Yesterday we had a lesson with Guillermo Gomez. We confirmed everything, and everything is on track for his wedding on Thursday, and his baptism on Friday. We´re pretty worried about Jimena, his future wife, because she hasn´t been listening to us lately....actually, for about a month. It´s like she´s avoiding us, and with the little time that we were able to see her before, it has a big effect. Guillermo told us that she has a lot of stress with her work, and studies. I hope that we can talk with her, but sadley, i don´t think that she will be able to be baptized with Guillermo on Friday.

Last night we had a special lesson with Jimena Acuña, and her family. We watched The Testaments. It´s been a long time since i´ve seen it, and the first time in spanish, and it´s still just as good as i remember it!!! The spirit was really strong during the movie! We also left them with another movie to watch later in the week!

We weren´t able to see Rocio much this last week, she´s been really busy with work, with her Son, and then SHE got sick. She decided that it didn´t matter, and we had her baptismal interview on Saturday morning, and then she was baptized in the afternoon. She had asked me to baptize her, but last sunday her little brother, who was baptized about a month ago, got the priesthood, and is a we had him baptize her! It was GREAT!! She had lots of family come from all over, and a few friends as well!

This next week is going to be a busy for Elder Labra and I...We have conferences Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Guillermo´s wedding on Thursday, a District Meeting on Friday, and Guillermo´s baptism Friday aswell.

I love you all, and hope that you´re enjoying the sun and fun!

Love,  Elder Denton
