This week was super packed!! Monday we spent all day having interviews for our baptisms! On Wednesday we had interviews with Presidente as companions. We were super pumped about our work that we had done in our area and he told us to now focus more on family history!! He said it’s so important for the members to be doing their history and helping the missionary work on both sides of the veil!
Thursday I had my last Zone conference! It was super good and I learned a lot. All of the zone leaders talked and the assistants and Pres gave a capacitation. One of my favorite capacitacions was given by Elder Adams and his comp and they talked about the doctrine of Christ! How to truly have converts, we need to KNOW by heart and mind and understand the SIMPLE doctrine. They taught about Christ and how he organized his church. It was super good!
That same night we had an interview for our investigator Mercedes with Pres Li. She ended up NOT passing quite yet and we were heartbroken. She has changed her life and continues to make changes. Pres just wants her to continue on this path to help her be completely prepared to take Christ’s name upon her and be baptized. I thought that Mercedes would be devastated but she just turned to me and smiled and said that God still had to prepare her! She has a good attitude about everything!!! And she is doing everything to change, she even dumped her looser boyfriend because he didn’t help her progress. She loves the church!!! And I just love her. Its gonna be hard leaving this area just for her I think haha. But yesterday she came to church walking in the pouring rain and she just laughed when she got there! she’s the best(:
Friday we taught a Pf couple who are really progressing!!! We are going to help them get married and baptized!!! They should be good to go by April because we still gotta teach them and help them learn(:
Saturday was our baptism(: it was soooooo stressful because we organized everything and the bishop basically just brought soda pop hahaha but in the end, it was so pretty and we had a great turn out(: and Miluzka and Janire were super happy!!
Love you guys!

And looking back in the other direction. Ahhhhh, it was so crazy stepping over all the dogs. I thought I was going to fall in and the dogs literally do not move.
