Welcome to the Jungle

What’s going on in the U S of A?!!!

Well this Saturday we will be having the baptisms of a mother and her 9 year old son.  First baptisms here in a whole year!! We are so excited and that is only the beginning.  We told the branch president that she is ready and the work is now progressing again and we are going to need their help in strengthening these new members to keep them strong and active, so the branch has to start working again. We are stoked!!! 

The miracle that I want to share from this week was with our investigator Veronica. Her husband was baptized in Bilbao about 2 months ago but they moved to Erandio (a pueblo here) and we have been teaching her for about a month. But at first they were having serious marriage problems and she said that was the thing stopping her from ultimately getting an answer about baptism. But now she is reading every day and praying and they have come to church as a family the last 2 Sundays. And she says that she feels great about everything and the best part is that their marriage is improving and I see them so much happier now. And now she is going to be baptized in just a few short weeks. I can’t wait to see this family completed!!!! They are from Argentina and in their 30’s, great family. 

Then we have a 9 year old son from a menos activo family. So many miracles!! And the family we have been working with came to church and even brought a friend, I think they are just waiting for the hija to get back from work in 2 weeks and then all 6 will be getting baptized!! And we are going to start teaching their friend. We had 11 in church again; I have never seen this in my mission. 

So life is good here, this Saturday we will find out transfers and honestly nobody is safe ha ha. We have 22 elders and 22 sisters coming in.  Yes that equals 44.  So the whole mission is going to change!! And I doubt they will keep me and my comp together with the success we are seeing, they will probably need him to train, he is such a great missionary. But who knows, only the Lord!!!
