Crazy Week... AKA Normal Week

I wish I could tell you guys all about my week I had, Im sure you noticed that i didnt write you guys on Saturday like i normally do! haha

We had a couple baptisms this week and it was amazing. On tuesday the DL came to our area to do the interviews and it was crazy because do to office things and missing buses, we got back to the area super late and had 3 interviews to do, along with a super important appointment. Thank you for miracles, because some how, random members fell into our path and gave us rides and helped us make it to everything on time.

Friday I ripped my pants.

Saturday was pday and so we went with the APs and other Secretaries to a museum and ate at IHOP. The baptismal service was set at 4pm but do to relatives of the converts wanting to go it got pushed back to 6 pm, (welcome to Guate). So we we busy with the baptism service from 3 to 730ish and that is why we ran out of time and couldnt write home.

Yesterday was a true miracle. My comp and I were going around inviting everyone to church, and the big group we had gathered.. well, we all missed the bus. Church starts at nine.. and with missed the 830 bus. We just waited around with the two converts that needed to be confirmed in Sacrement meeting and it was super stressful... I prayed super hard and was just hoping we would make it on time. Well, The Lord immensely blessed us and we showed up at 920 and they called their names to be confirmed exactly when we walked in.
It was super important to make it on time because Maritza (17) was off to visit her mom who is sick in PETEN! super far away and if she wasnt confirmed yesterday, it wouldve caused a huge problem.

Well it was a great week. Maritza and Allan we baptized and confirmed.
Maritza is the young lady who doesnt speak much spanish, and we taught her with a member who translates to the language of Kekchi.
Lets talk about having lessons with descendants of the lamanites, TOO spiritual.

Love you all and thank you for all your prayers. Your faith is what allowed us to break through Satans barriers and allow the spirit to guide us this week.

Love, Elder Nathan Russell Walton
