I always think right after an amazing week it will take something crazy to have a week that could be better than the last. HA! But this past week was another amazing one! Being a missionary is fantastic!
I don’t have tons of time to write because we are washing our clothes in a laundromat next door and I took some time writing the Mission President, but I will do the best I can!!
We found another 14 people to teach this week!! Our teaching pool is gigantic, it’s almost like we should stop finding because we don’t have quality time with all of our investigators. We broke 40 lessons again this week and almost baptized one of our families, but they bailed last-minute. We will see what happens this week!
The mission is close to our baptism goal so as a mission we all fasted Tuesday and Wednesday for the baptism dates that we have and…don’t have…. so literally in the same hour that we finished fasting we found an old investigator who the previous Elders dropped because she wasn’t progressing. She was living with her boyfriend and didn’t want to get married. She is very active in the church but couldn’t be baptized until she moved out or got married. So it just so happened that when we passed by her house, after breaking our fast, that we saw her packing her car up and she changed houses! Ha! Miracles! She’s going to get baptized this Friday.
One scripture that we have been sharing this week is in the book of Alma 31-34.
31 Yea, I would that ye would come forth and harden not your hearts any longer; for behold, now is the time and the day of your salvation; and therefore, if ye will repent and harden not your hearts, immediately shall the great plan of redemption be brought about unto you.
I love this a ton! As you guys know we have a goal to baptize ten investigators this month. We have been preaching how TODAY is the day to do it. I love how it says immediately the plan of redemption will be brought about unto you. I have seen that when we choose to serve the lord and accept his gospel NOW, we receive blessings immediately.
Loving TJ! I had a soup yesterday that was called “fishhead soup.” I forgot my camera but it was just the heads of fish. Not the best but cool to tell the family on Monday. My Spanish is great, companions good…just a good time in the mission right now for Elder Woods!
Missing you guys a ton. I hope everything went well this week!!
Les Amo Mucho!!
