Week 25: New Companion, Ups and Downs

Familia y Amigos,

This week was really good and also a little trying. I got a great new companion, Elder Jesus, he is a recent convert of a little bit more than a year and is a really hard worker and I'm really excited for the success that we are going to see in this change. 

This week was a bit tough because we found out the the partidas, or birth certificate, wasn't found in the system for 2 couples that we were going to marry this month, one of them we were going to baptize too on the 28 of this month. But, we just gotta keep up the hard work so they can get married in Abril. I'm happy for the "fruits" that I've been able to see with these two families the Pacheco y Rivera (Paico) families. 

But I also got some really great news! This Saturday A____ is going to get baptized! We've worked really hard with him and through the Book of Mormon and a lot of prayer he has been able to change his life and come to the knowledge of what happiness really is and that it comes through obediencia a los commandments and the Book of Mormon. He's been prepared to take this first step towards his salvation and I am really happy for him and the blessings he is going to see from baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Oh yeah, the foto with a bunch of flour in my face was a from a noche de hogar, family night, that we had with a bunch of leaders from the ward the night before Elder Guerra left. We had a pile of flour with a coin on top and we had to carve away the edges of the sugar but make sure the coin was still standing, if the flour and coin collapsed we had to pick it up with our mouth...And it fell...jaja. 

Well this is about it for the week for me! Hope all of you have a great week!

Con mucho amor,

Elder Potter
