this week was an awesome one, we had another baptism, this kid is a stud, he is named stiven valdez, and he wants nothing more than to go to the temple and receive a calling in the deacons quorum, his baptism was awesome, elder call did the honors, he had to borrow my pants though haha. kinda sad though, his parents could get off work and school to come to his baptism, really just makes me appreciate the supportive and loving parents i have!
then we did an intercambio, or interchange, idk how to say it in english, but i went to the area of the zone leaders, and worked with elder carrillo for the day, he is stud, but has one less transfer than i do in the field, but he knows spanish and english, his parents are from mexico, but it was way cool. we had a sweet lesson, this 18 year old kid was listening to everything we taught, christs church, the apostacy, the restoration and all about joseph smith and he said he knew it was true, the i felt the spirit and invited him to be baptized........... he said he was already baptized in the catholic church and he is already saved but he liked our message and all...... man that hurts, next lesson elder carillo is gonna talk about the gift of the holy ghost and invite him to recieve that as well! haha
this sunday was great, had 12 investigators come to church and we taught 18 lessons with members this week which was just awesome! really working hard and loving it at the same time! we have 3 baptisms lined up for the 19th of decemeber, a father and his two sons, familia Frias, should be sweet!
spanish is still coming along, my accent is worse, but elder call is helping me with my grammar, so thats cool. he is a good guy, really knows his stuff, im learning tons from him!
all in all i couldnt be more blessed, this time of year its hard to be away from home, but i know that its for a good reason, the quest for souls of men, if anyone knows that song... if not look it up, its my favorite song right now on the mission!
I love you all and will be in touch next week! be safe and HLJ! ctr... hehe
ELDER AUGER OUT!
