Second.... the song “What A Feeling” from Flashdance is playing in the Cyber...,God is good! =) The small blessings I get in cyber time haha.
But wow what a week I had as being the new LD and all! The weather was absolutely wonderful this past week, until Friday and Saturday when it rained yet again, drenching everything and everyone!
This week was one of the harder weeks for us, as we just could not find anyone to approach about the Gospel!!!! Like really it was a GHOST town! So the week was a tad bit difficult and nothing exciting really happened. Friday night it was raining beyond belief and I just wanted the day to end. We had been walking the whole day in that rain and I was exhausted, but I decided to push myself a little more and search for one more door to clap at. I saw this house with lots of pretty flowers painted on it and hoped that they wound be open to our cause, so we clapped and this guy opened the door and he let us in. He introduced himself as Facundo. As we visited we began to find out that he is Catholic, but like super Catholic, he teaches classes and everything. He also is juntado (living with his girlfriend) so we didn’t approach the baptismal invite just yet however we talked about baptism and it’s purpose. He told us that his faith was kind of dwindling and that he felt we were really sent from God to knock at his door that day. He agreed to read and pray and search for answers, and that if he received answers, he would continue with the lesson and eventually get baptized in the Church. We are super pumped to continue to teach him. It was a nice blessing from the Lord, after a long day of infinity walking through mud and mud and mud.
Sunday brought happiness as Carlos got the Priesthood and it was so super awesome! He was so excited and emotional at the same time but, it was just a wonderful experience! I know that he is just going to be a super firm member in the Church and will go forth with his testimony!
Well we are hoping to have the baptism of Luciano this week! Keep him in your prayers, that he doesn´t drink, he had a big problem awhile back, but now he has been good for weeks. I told him that I know that Satan be after him this week with everything he has and he would have to stay buried in his scriptures and prayer this week! So prayers there, for him as well, and keep your fingers crossed! =), never hurts right!!
I know the time is short but I have to spend more time with Mission President on email these days! Hope everything is going well back home! I love and miss ya´ll, especially as I hear that fall is rolling in there, my favorite time of year right and behind it Halloween !!!
Stay classy kids!
Love,Elder Wade Draper
