This past week has had its ups and downs, as usual. Luckily we have a calm P Day to recuperate and start fresh tonight at six.
We have been working with a number of Investigators, all of whom are really really cool. We have three baptisms scheduled for the coming Sunday; all three of them have scheduled baptismal interviews for Wednesday and Saturday. Their names are Irais, Claudia, and Angelica. Claudia is the daughter of Angelica, and Irais is a refferral from a member in the Ward. Yep! It's really sweet to have been able to see the great improvement in this Area.
The following Sunday is the tentative date for the two young guys, Jose and Eric from the AA group. They're bothing having trouble giving up smoking, but we're doing what we can to help them.
It was pretty crazy yesterday (Sunday) because Elder Pastrana went to pickup three investigators in three different places to no avail. It was frustrated, but we were instantly blessed with having Angelica, Claudia, and the husband of the family Juan attend sacrament meeting, along with Irais. We met a man named Vicente who attended for the first time yesterday, by himself. This is RARE. haha. He told us that he has passed by the chapel a number of times, and curiosity (and we could say, the Spirit) brought him to the Church. He is really awesome, he was asking us for a Book of Mormon by the end of Priesthood meeting and told us we could baptize him whenever we wanted. It was so great haha. We told him we're going to teach him a bit and then we can baptize him. We have an appointment with him tonight in the Chapel, along with our new Ward Mission Leader.
Gotta love this work.
PS/ Mama Crump, thanks for that picture of Brady! I was dying of laughter. I'm doing to develop it today :)
Oh, and the picture attached is just one I took while we were on our way to play soccer last p day. I thought it turned out pretty sweet!
