3/2/2015 Happy Monday!

Hello hello!

Well this week went by pretty fast. I am happy to say that WE HAVE A FECHA!! On Tuesday we contacted a man who was sitting in his house. We got talking and it turns out that he is a member, but that he is inactive. We were about to leave and his granddaughter walked to the door. We visited with her and she was interested.Her name is Carmen and she is 19. We made another appointment her and taught the Restoration. We invited her to be baptized and she told us yes. We invited her to an activity and to church and she attended both. She is living with her boyfriend and told us she is willing to get married so that she can be baptized. So we get to plan a wedding and a baptism! Her baptism date is March 21st. The funny thing is that the Elders had contacted the same guy and gave him a Book of Mormon. Then we passed by 2 days later to the same house and found Hermana Carmen. It just shows that the Lord is constantly preparing people and depending on His timing we will find them. It is the best feeling to watch people change. To see them in their willingness to follow the Savior. To repent and follow Him into the waters of baptism. "Angels are preparing the hearts of the people and God is preparing the way".

Our other investigator, Angelita, is going to be baptized as well. She has a date for March 7th. She practically is a member. Always in church, always in the activities, reading the scriptures and other books by the church. She has problems with her health and lives alone so Saturday night we passed by her house to check in. All she could do was open the door then headed back to the couch. Because of her health problems she had a super bad temp and was shaking. We tried to doctor her up. (it filled the void for my time away from the CNA life). We waited with her while she slept then we called the bishop and our ward mission leader to give her a blessing. I am so thankful for the Priesthood and for the chance my companion and I had to do a little bit of what Christ would be doing if He were on the earth. 

On Saturday we had a ward activity. Un Show de Talentos. It was a mission activity and the purpose was to have each member bring a friend or family member who wasn{t a member so that we as missionaries could meet them. We had pamphlets from all the lessons, Books of Mormons, and Liahonas that the investigators could choose from. Then each organization in our ward had to perform 1 or 2 talents. It was a cool activity. Everyone had a good time, a lot of laughing.As missionaries we sang Soy un Hijo de Dios accompanied by a guitar.

We worked with one of our hermana leaders on Thursday. We had a good day together. The funny part is that we only have two chairs and two beds in our house so for studying, planning, and sleeping she was on the floor. I felt bad but at least she got to enjoy our air conditioning for a night haha.  We contacted 52 people that day. 52! 

Things are good here in El Salvador. I am so thankful for this chance I have to be serving a mission and to be surrounded by the amazing people here. I hope all is well and that you guys aren´t freezing too badly!! Happy March :)

Lots of love!
