What Up?.... November 12, 2012

Well.. Hey(: That was another pretty quick week. And a good week of work. I
truly am so very grateful down here to be doing this.. Even tho, I wont be
experiencing a wonderful holiday season this year or the next (bummed out
beyond measure :/ ), I know that this sacrifice will pay off. In someway or
other(: Well its a official.. Ive started to forget words in English.. But!
I also had my first dream in Spanish haha.. And the cool thing was I was
talking to dad! Haha A mind is a crazy thing! But yeah I had my first dream
in ol espanol. Sweet Bro..  And I fuss you could say its comin along good..
I just find it hard to conjugate words right haha cause there is a lot of
different ways.. I gave another talk in Sacrament this week to! About
perseverar hasta el fin or enduring to the end! It went good haha, I always
use you guys in talks! Brag about you guys a lot.. But yup it went good,
there was also the highest number of people assist ever haha. 23 people.
That's the record here in Yajalon. That's the good news!
And of course there is always some bad, that's just how it goes hahah.. at
least in this work. The baptism we had planned didn't happen this
week, Because Friday night the dude we were supposed to baptize went out
and got drunk. Haha pretty sad here! Beer a big thing of it is cheaper than
water! Therefore no joke bout half the people here are always drunk haha
its terrible and there are a lot of kids to.. Good ol Mexico haha..! Well
we had a lesson with him, the next day and he said he wants to change and
he has desire to do so.. So we set his. baptism for this next Saturday..
But last night we passed him just as he was leavin his house and was
heading back out to do it again.. He kept walkin on right past us.. Ha I
said Hermano! He said no hablemos.. Ha and there he went.. Out to do it
again! So we left a note and all we can do is pray for a miracle! I have
plenty of Faith. We will see how things turn out fo sho .. The upside is we
have two new investigators(: A mom and her daughter. They have family that
is in the church.. Very good people. And they listen and ask questions! I
know we are definitely getting somewhere with these two. We will invite
them to baptism for the 24 of Nov. Thanksgiving I believe?  Ha so I will
hopefully be performing a baptism our last two weeks here! I have a really
good feeling about those two.
