We had a baptism yesterday that went super well! We also have dates for at least four more people this month, all of which seem pretty solid. I am wicked excited to see the work of the lord progressing and moving forward so quickly! It was a stressful day yesterday as the missionaries in this branch are always more than just missionaries, and we had to plan and execute everything without having any notice at all. It was a stressful day and I fell into a dead sleep.
I had a crazy experience the other day in which a four wheeler just stopped in the middle of the street without any reason, my companion pointed it out, and the driver seemed to be struggling with something. We ran over there and he was having a seizure! We had no choice but to pull his little daughter out of his arms so that he didn’t crush her or hurt her. All was good, and with some water and about 3 minutes of waiting, he just up and left. It was a good reminder that we need to be prepared to do anything at any moment, and always be worthy to receive the call of action when it comes. I have also seen 2 mute people for the first time in my life. One was a little boy who was trying to tell us something and we couldn’t figure out what it was, but he followed us for a few streets being our little buddy and it was pretty cute. I love the people here.
I was reading the story of Enos this week, and marked certain parts in it to make the story shorter and more simple, and I think that the story of Enos truly is amazing. We can see how powerful the atonement is in a matter of about 6-7 versus of scripture. This proves just how simple it is, even though it seems to be quite complicated. I know that the Atonement is powerful, and it does not matter where we are at in our lives, there is no point of no return, and we can always come back into the fold of God.
We had to say goodbye to hermana T. a little bit early as she is moving houses. She is the first person I met, and it is really hard to say goodbye to her. She is my mama de la mision and I don’t want to see her go. I love her and her family, and I didn’t realize how hard it would be to say goodbye already. She will visit every once in a while, but it just won’t be the same without her. 🙁
