Hey family it was a pretty great week down here.
We were in Comitan for Monday and Tuesday with the zone leaders. It was pretty nice, super fun, but it was nice to get back to our area and start working again.
We went over to 3 Maravillas again to see if we could find Francisco but he wasn’t there. Luckily his wife was, so we got talking with her and it sounds like they’re all in the same boat, trying to find God but not knowing exactly how to do it. We talked about what we do as missionaries and that the message we share is exactly what she and her husband are looking for. She didn’t have a ton of time to listen to us so we couldn’t teach the restoration.
Milton’s mom, Rosa, was never at home whenever we stopped by so we couldn’t ever teach her this week. We’re going over there today so pray that she’s there!!
Our Miracle Day was Friday. We went to the bank to deposit our rent and while we were there a guy kept looking at us. He finally came up to us and talked to us. He said he’s from a city about an hour away. His whole family is baptized except his daughter and he wants us to visit them so we can baptized his daughter!!!!! It was awesome, not coincidence. We were in the right place at the right time. We then went to 3 Maravillas, Francisco wasn’t there AGAIN, but we decided to share a message with the family. They told us that Francisco had just left and wasn’t going to be home for another hour, 5 min later Francisco shows up. Why he came back I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure that the Lord had something to do with it. As we ended the lesson, he told us " thanks for being so concerned for us and trying to help us accept God in our lives" it was a great experience. Sadly, my companion was not feeling well afterward so after lunch we went home. The next morning . . . . BOOM! My companion had chingunkuya. I felt so bad for him, he was dying and there were several times I could tell the poor guy just wanted to cry. He had a super bad fever, head ache. muscle and joint pain and was throwing up. So that’s how was spent Saturday and some of the day Sunday. But he’s doing much better now so were going to see if we can work today.
Sorry for the short letter but that’s a quick summary of our week. If you guys can help us please pray that Rosa and Francisco and our other investigators can accept a baptismal date and go to church. You guys are the best and I love ya all tons!!!
P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLA!!!! LOVE AND MISS YOU TONS!
