This was a great week, on Tuesday we had splits with the APs again, and I stayed here in my area with Elder Wilcock, we had a great day and it is always so fun to work with the most experienced missionaries cause we can put together our minds and always have success.
Frank and Sandy are doing well and we are going to take their papers to the lawyer on Wednesday for their wedding on the 14th! Keep praying for them, they are so enthusiastic about the gospel, and yesterday they got to fast and give offerings for the first time and they loved it.
Francisco is still doing super great. He has gone to church I think for 5 weeks straight now and he stays for all 3 hours. He wants to be baptized so bad and he tells his wife everyday, Either we get married or you leave, but I cant be in this situation anymore. She tries making excuses and saying that they are fine but he knows that they arent. The culture here is so negative when it comes to marraige but he is so faithful and yesterday was a true miracle because we were able to sit down with his "wife" finally and she listened to us for the first time. She agreed to be married to him but she doesnt really want to accept our challenge to go to church with us. We are hoping that their wedding and his baptism can be on the 21st or Elder Rochas last Saturday which would be the 28th!
We have been teaching a guy named Edgar who is from the Pentecostal church. When we first met him he thought that he was going to be able to bible bash us and prove us wrong. The second time we taught him was about a week and a half ago. When he allowed us to share the restoration with him, he was super open and willing to listen. Last Sunday he called us and told us to go visit him... he had two friends there with him... we thought they were his pastors but they ended up being too members from that church and they listened to us.
Yesterday edgar went to church with us and at about noonish he called us and had two more friends waiting to hear us and they are super cool! They want to go to church this sunday and one is already talking about serving a mission in a year! haha Edgar isnt even a member and he already understands the importance of sharing the restoration with everyone. He is preparing to be baptized as well but we havent set a date with him yet!
We are working super hard and seeing so many blessings. Hopefully I will be able to be here for these baptisms and for the many other investigators we are teaching... i have "planted the seed" way too much in my mission.... i am ready to actually baptism the people I find with my companions.. haha love you all and thank you all soo much for your prayers!
