Week 97 --- Progreso will be the death of me...

SQUAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How y’all doing? I know I didn´t write last week, and I´m sorry. I have some things to share. To start I should probably explain the title, because just reading it, it might seem like there are some problems going on, but it´s not true. I was simply referring to the fact that I will die here in Progreso which is missionary slang to say that I will be end my mission here. I got a new companion, and for those who aren’t keeping track that would be 3 companions in one area. WOW!  Sooo yeah, we had a pretty good week. We were able to teach a lot. 15 lessons this week! We also found 14 new investigators. 

So my new companion is Elder Castro, he´s from Mexico, he speaks really good English.  When we are in the apartment, we pretty much talk only English.

Sad thing, Sergio, our investigator who was supposed to be baptized, told us he isn´t ready which to me is kinda weird, because he told us that he knows the Book of Mormon is the word of God, he believes everything we have taught. He said he´s just a little scared to make such an important decision. So we are gonna see what we can do to help him.

Sorry I ran out of time, I´ll tell y’all more next week.

Week 95 --- It's been a minute

SQUAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I´m sorry that it´s been so long since I´ve written. Sooooo I thought I should probably write something. Well right now we are teaching this guy, Sergio, he´s been to church 4 times already, and if all goes well he´ll be baptized this Saturday. He at first had doubts about the Book of Mormon, so he decided to do something he had always done with the Bible when he needed some help, he opened it up to a random page and reads, and many times when he did this he opened up to a chapter that started with "My son" He always felt that was God´s way of speaking to him, and he opened up to Alma 41 and the first thing it starts off with " And now, my son," Then that chapter answered many of his questions and doubts. People the Book of Mormon is powerful. Read it, ponder it, pray about it.  It will help you.
Another dude, Manuel, he´s dope, he came to church for the second time yesterday, and he will be baptized June 9th. In our second lesson with him he said the Book of Mormon was true. I say it again the Book of Mormon is powerful.

Well that´s all I got for this week, BYE!
