Mom note: We were able to talk to Elder Potter yesterday for Mother's Day. He is doing great. His goal is to finish strong. He didn't want to talk much about coming home. He wants to stay focused and give all that he can to his Heavenly Father. Elder Potter feels his time as a missionary is precious.
Buenos dias a todos!
Buenos dias a todos!
This week was an amazing week and we honestly saw God's hand in the work this week. Going into this week in our zone we had about 6 people in our zone with baptismal dates, but now we have about 10 and were hoping that by Wednesday well have about 12 or 15ish. It is amazing what hard work, diligence, and a lot of hope and faith can do do! We've really helped our our zone get united and super pumped to reach our goal of 20 baptisms this month.
It is funny how the changes work, right when the zone gets super united, we have changes. This week there are 5 missionaries that have a change and we are going to have 2 new missionaries come into the zone. I love working with new missionaries. I love watching them progress and become good Christlike missionaries.
Elder Iglesias and I decided to do a little training with our district leaders last Friday to train them about how to do baptismal interviews and teach the Atonement and it was awesome! Hno Yoyi, the brother that washes our clothes came and prepared breakfast for us. He prepared hot dogs and we drank coca cola! It wasn't your average breakfast, but it was still awesome and I was really grateful that he came and helped us out. After the training all of the district leaders and their companions were super excited to go out and work and get their districts excited. We are definitely seeing eye to eye and have the same vision now.
The drought of Retablo also ceased this week! After 3 weeks of not having a single investigator come to church, one person came to church! Our prayers were definitely answered this week. His name is Antoni and is 19 years old. He was going to church in Ica a while ago and is now living here in Comas to study. We have an appointment with him on Tuesday. We were super grateful that he came!
Well, I think that that is about all for this week! Que tengan una excelente semana!
