The Adventures of Jutiapa Continue

Hello Everyone.

Dulce's baptism
Today I will be writing without emotion because the Exclamation point key on my keyboard doesn't work... but anyway I will be staying in Jutiapa this change and Elder Williams is leaving after just a change here. Something cool is that my companion's dad served here in Jutiapa 43 years ago. He was able to meet a couple of the members that were around at that time and a few remember him vaguely despite the years. 

So I will be continuing the work here with whoever is my new companion. We have a lot of miracles happening right now and many great people. I mentioned Junior last time and he is still really excited and loves going to church. Also we are teaching an older man named Gregorio whose son was going to be baptized a few years ago but was poisoned and died. Gregorio told us he had dreamed many times that his son was a missionary. He decided to go to church and already is beginning to convince himself that it's where he needs to be, though is not quite ready to be baptized on a specific date. He is convinced that it will happen, but he wants us to pass by a few more times and keep teaching him the doctrine.

Root beer floats to celebrate
Also Dulce Paredes was baptized on Saturday. She's the daughter of a member family that went inactive for a couple years and consequently missed her baptism last year when she turned 8. This year they came back in full force and haven't missed a Sunday for 2 months straight and they also have the goal to be sealed this year. We helped them out and taught their daughter what she needed to know and we had a great turnout at the baptism.

Also the members are getting excited to help thanks to the I Never Go Alone program and as a result the majority of the 13 investigators that came to church were brought by members.

Have a great week :D
