#44: May Goal Met :)

This last week was super, super cool and went by really fast!  So many things happened.  We were busy all week long and we saw so many miracles from the Lord in our area and our Zone.

On Monday, we had a Zone meeting in La Junta, which was super good.  We are all energized as a Zone to baptize a goal of 40 souls in the month of May.  Then, after the meeting, my companion and I were sent on some crazy divisions with the Zone Leaders!  Monday night, I went back to Guerrero with Elder Zohner, while my companion, Elder Herrera went to San Juanito with Elder Ashworth.  The plan was to work my area until Wednesday afternoon because Elder Zohner needed to go to Madera to interview people there for baptism.  While we were in Guerrero, we had an investigator
who was needing an interview, so  we went to Hermano Alfredo's house, interviewed him on Wednesday morning, then brought him to La Junta to be baptized.  He loved being baptized and it was awesome!!!  After the baptism, Elder Zohner and I headed off to Madera and my actual companion (Elder Herrera) and Elder Ashworth went back to Guerrero until we returned from Madera.  While in Madera, we were able to interview their investigators but was unable to baptize them this week.  We are hoping the following week, we will be able to bring them to baptism.

But, what was really cool, Elder Herrera and Elder Ashworth interviewed, and baptized THREE siblings from my area!!  It was super awesome!  I wasn't able to make it to their baptisms because we were coming back to Guerrero Madera that same morning.  But, I was able to see them confirmed today (Sunday) into the church!

This last week has really flown by super fast with all the events that happened!  We have been super busy running around everywhere, getting people ready for baptism and then seeing them be baptized. Elder Herrera and I had a goal to baptize 6 people from our Area in the month of May.  I never thought we would be able to meet our goal in the first week!! But we aren't going to end there, we still want to see the miracles God has for us this month.  I can't wait to see who else we can teach, baptize and bring closer to their Heavenly Father, and Savior Jesus Christ.

As for Mother's Day, I believe that this time we will go to La Junta because there isn't a computer here in my area.  What time will work best for the family, as well as Brooke and Dylan?  Will dad be coming home right after church?  Also, we got word from the assistants that this time we can Skype for an hour and a half!!!!  That's 30  minutes más!!!!I hope we can finalize the plan for Mother's day to Skype.  I can't wait to see everyone :)

This week's scripture to "Ponderize" is:

2 Nephi 25:26
And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.
