Bipolar week! Both in weather and in events. Hot as heck, then rainy as heck, good days bad days.
First of all... I’M NOT GETTING TRANSFERED!!!! So that’ll be another good month and a half in Comalapa!
So everything was greaton Monday. We went over to Marvin and Eva’s house and ate with them again (he fried up some slabs of meat on a broken washing machine. I wanted to take a picture but felt weird asking). We’re working hard with them but Eva has been a bit reluctant on getting married. Marvin wants to it so bad, he wants "to be good with God".
Wednesday the WHOLE ZONE came over to Comalapa for our zone meeting and then we all went out to visit some families and investigators! 2 of those investigators were Luis and Nancy (Rosa’s kids) and they were both interviewed for baptism and they both have a date for the 21st of November!!!! We’re so excited for them.
We also visited some less actives this week named Margot and her husband Hector. After talking with them for a while they talked about how much they miss church and how Hector was almost going to get baptized about 3 years ago!!!! So we invited him again and he said YES! He has all the church attendances necessary, he just needs to start coming again and we need to go over the lessons again.
We also me with a man named Giermo and wow... he’s AWEOSME! He’s an old guy that’s been listening to the Jehovah's Witnesses so he was really confused! But we taught him the restoration and he cried as he said the closing prayer. It was such a spirit filled lesson! He sadly couldn’t come to church but we’re going to work hard with him this next week and have a member drop by for him!
The really sad part about this week was that we found out that Rosa hasn’t been as faithful as we thought. She’s been making some very poor decisions and it’s been affecting her and her kids. It really broke my heart and it’s been a really rough couple of days. But please keep her in your hearts and prayers. She really needs them.
Sunday ended with a fantastic fast and testimony meeting. Everyone was crying. Marvin bore a powerful testimony as well as Gil (the man whose daughter passed away). It was just a very powerful and great Sunday. Thinking it was going to be my last in Comalapa, I too bore my testimony and kind of told everyone goodbye... ha! oops! That’s what I get for trying to read the Lords mind! We ended our Sunday by visiting Gil, Lucy and their family. They’re doing great and staying faithful and strong in the gospel.
Well family, I love and miss you all very much. You mean the world to me. I know the Church is true and that our Savior really did die for us. I know the church has been restored and we have the privilege of being a part of it. The mission is hard.... but it’s totally worth it!
