Week 94



This week was another solid week!  We had another 2 baptisms.  Hermelinda and her son Axel.  We started teaching them a few weeks back, and they were just pure gold, really fun to teach them, and they had an awesome baptism.  The boilers in the church are broken so another cold baptism, but the holy ghost always pulls through to keep them warm.
Other than that we have a new president!  Still havent met him, but this thursday we have conference with him, so thats exciting.  
Love you all!

Week 93


This week was another great week!  Lots of miracles and we have a great week coming up.

This sunday we were a little nervous because one of the people we had baptized had problems with getting sunday off for her job, so we just left it up to the lord.  We werent sure how but she was able to get out of work on sunday and she showed up with her husband!  They even brought their dad along to and he was happy to be there!  Its great to see families brought in closer.  

We also have 2 baptisms for this saturday! So Ill send pictures next week, weve been extremely blessed this change!
Love you all!

Week 92

Happpy Fathers Day to the Best Dad!

First things first just want to wish a big happy fathers day to my dad!  Hes honestly the craziest but coolest guy youll ever meet and he is always in the service of the lord and is a huge influence for me in my life!  Love you pops! Derricks the man.

This week was great!  We ended up having 5 baptisms! After having to reteach everything and get them married and interviews and lots of stress, theyre all baptized and happy!  Pretty awesome!  We have another 3 baptisms coming up in the next few weeks from the news weve found in these weeks.  Lots of work and lots of fun!

Love you all!

Week 91

Down On the Farm

This week on the farm of our neighbor, the pig, almost hung itself.  We were just about to go to bed and we just heard the pig screaming and the dogs barking, so we went out and the pig was tied up and wrapped up with a rope caught around his belly, so we went and got the owners and cut him lose.  Luckily my comp lived on a farm his whole life, and they took care of that situation.

We have the 5 baptisms set for this tuesday!  One of our couples got married this last thursday!  Honestly the weirdest couple I´ve ever seen get married, but its all good!  The other couple gets married tomorrow in the morning!  We were going to marry them last tuesday, but the wife "didnt buy a dress" and they got in a huge fight, so we had to calm them down, and reset the wedding.  But alls well.
Literally no one in this city is married.... ever.  Its honestly sad, but its just not important to them.  The real meaning of marriage and love has been lost here in tezuitlan.  And in the world.  Courting and searching has been changed for quick relationships, and sadness.  

We had a cool lesson the other day.  We accidently knocked a door looking for a member, and an older man walked out and the smell of smoke was overwhelming, but nonetheless we contacted him and put a lesson down and he said yes.  We ended up not being able to go to the lesson but a different day we passed by, and he let us in, so we taught repentance and baptism, and he accepted!  We honestly had very little hope going into the lesson, but we learned our lesson that God really does prepare people for this gospel, and we cant forget that!
Love you all!
