Unfortunately, I wasn´t able to write much for the email last week, so here´s what we did last week: We went to a little town not far away, called Chiu Chiu, and had a barbecue. It was lots of fun.
Now, as for this week.. We had four baptisms!!!! It´s an awesome, very humble family (Elena, Juan, Rodrigo, and Carolina) that was entirely open and receptive from the first moment we met them. They have truly been a blessing to watch, quietly and obediently progress in the work of the Lord.
This Friday, we will also be having a baptism of the primary president´s nine-year old son, Vicente. We have been working especially hard with his dad, Claudio, who is not a member, but already very commited to the gospel. He has paid tithing, come to church, wants to be baptized, and even says he is certain that one day he will get baptized. The only thing that stands in the way, is that he says he doesn´t feel ready. Sometimes, situations like these make me very aware of how Heavenly Father sees me. That I have everything I could possibly need to progress, but I don´t feel ready to take such leaps of faith. However, when we promise God to do whatever He asks of us, we will always be amazed by the outcome.... the kind of person He can help us become when we have enough faith to trust Him completely.
Hopefully, everyone enjoys thanksgiving, and has another good week! I´ll write you all again next week!
