Un Bautismo!!

So this week we started off really trying to complete with the goals president has for us: 20 contacts everyday 6 lessons, 3 with converts and less actives. Then wednesday we had just about one of the hardest days of my mission. One of the girls we have been preparing for baptism didn't know her date of birth, and couldn't get a hold of her parents for permission, Then as we talked to her Wednesday we felt she was lying to us and she said she was going to be going to her farm for about a month. We were SUPER bummed.

Then we went by on Thursday to talk straight with her, figure out what is really going on and if she really wants to be baptized. As we talked to her, asking questions inspired by the spirit as to why she wanted to get ba`ptized she showed us she really wanted to until she said she wanted to get baptized that Saturday!! We couldn't believe it. so we rushed to plan a baptism in 1 day. But it went throuugh!! To this day, I still can't quite believe that we had the baptism. She is 18 years old and pregnant with her second child. Very excited to start her new life! 

But then Sunday (which I am convinced is not a day of rest) we were running everywhere!! Leidy almost didn't go to her branch to get confirmed (she thoughtit would be okay if she went to the one in the afternoon). But luckily we were able to get her there in time to be confirmed at the end of the meeting. whoo! What a relief. Then after church we were about half dead, all the new families we had found during the week hid from us. It is funny because we KNOW they are there and we had that appointment to pass by. But they don't answer. I don't know why they don't just tell us that they aren't interested. I thank the people who tell us that. But the Lord blessed us to have a good attitude as people hid and gave us the wrong addresses. But we were happy to get some rest last night. I don't know if I have ever been so tired in my life!!! 

Overall it was a good week! I was able to study about obedience and learn that God really can't do anything for us if we aren't obedient. It is important!!! Up to he will put stumbling blocks in our way to help humble us and help us be more obedient. 

This week we look forward to hearing from some general authorities!! It should be good! And we will continue working hard and doing our best to follow the spirit!! Life is good,but hard here in Nicaragua!! But I love Juigalpa and love my district. Don't want to get cahnged, but we will see what happnes!!!

Have a great week!! I love you all!!! Keep reading your Libro de Mormon! and tell me what you learn!!! 

Love, your colocha!
