so on on p day we went to visit jaxon harrop in the MTC, and also ran into his comp, who is from the ward of Jeff and Jen Dorious, super cool, small world! also got to see my MTC teacher, hna garcia!
then for our thursday District, Zone, Meeting, we had a development for the zone, missionaries gave topics and talked about various parts of the work, then we ate lunch together as a zone, a member from the stake catered for us, then we started a zone fast, super cool and successful activity! then I took a pic with my favorite brazillian, elder barbosa!
then we had to go do a baptismal interview on thursday night, it ended up taking a long time to get it done, and we finished at like 9:30 so instead of trying to travel back to our area that night, we slept over in the house of elder fajardo, and dias, the only problem was that they didnt have any beds, so we got the floor ;) hahaha super long and memorbale night!
then on sunday we had a baptism, her name is Grisleidy, turns out that she had been being prepared by the primary president for a long time, she talked to us one day in the street and said that she wanted to be baptized, we had met her family about a month or two ago, her grandma is less active, and her parents are seperated, she is ten years old and has been going to church all year, she told us she wanted to be baptized and we said that we could make that happen, when we asked her what she new, she told us everything, the law of chastity, the word of wisdom, the law of tithing, the sabbath day, everything, super amazing, we just had to review everything and teach a little more on the restoration and she was golden, really was a bit of a miralce baptism, i think it was becuase of the fast we had started as a zone. then after, hna Glennys, the bishops wife invited us to a little banana bread, which was super delicious, and made me super trunky, tasted just like yours mom! and smelled like it too!
great week overall, one last experience, all of the week we were confronted by interesting people, drunks, crazies, homeless, afflicted, of every kind, most of which wanted money, i normally try to kindly share the gospel and invite them to church, because we are incouraged not to give money to people on the street, but the intersting thing was that my comp, elder cuellar asked me, Why do you think that all the crazies come to us and not to the other people walking around in the street with bibles and preaching the word? he later responded to his own question, I guess because they recognize us as true representatives of Jesus Christ, and he undoubtedly was always visiting those who were sick or afflicted, home less or possesed, no wonder they always come to the mormon missionaries! way cool moment for us, im glad to be a servant of the Lord, wear his name on my chest everyday, i encourage eveyone to share the gospel in any moment possible, this is the kingdom of God.
