#29: 40 Days of Fasting

Well, the work here is going.  We are hoping to have baptism either this weekend or the following.  Hopefully they will be prepared by this weekend to make this great covenant! :)
I'm really sorry, but I don't have any pictures or a journal entry from this past week.  By the time we come home and plan for the next day, I'm exhausted and beat and just lay in bed...haha   Next week I'll try to have both pictures and a journal entry!
Later today I will begin fasting because our branch here in Guerrero is doing a 40 day fast, where for 40 days, one person fasts for one day.  We are doing this to hopefully get 50 souls in church on Sunday this month.  This past Sunday, we had 34 people, where at the beginning of the month there were only 20!!!  So, the fasting is showing improvement in the Branch!
I love and pray each day for you,
Your Elder Fowler

(This week's scripture to "Ponderize")

2 Nephi 2:11
For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.
