I wasn't able to email yesterday because we were in La Junta playing baseball all day long for a zone activity. It was super fun, but we all got really burned....like low on the neck where the sun don't shine very often. hahaha
Changes (transfers) are coming up this next weekend, and it sounds like I might be leaving the area, but nothing is official until Sunday night when we get the phone call. I've heard that the zone I've been in, is the best in the mission. I really love my area and my house....it's going to be hard for sure! In the month of May, my zone's goal was to baptize 40 people. We've ended the month with 48!! 9 of those were from my area! We baptized two more people last week, and I have photos of it all :) And, as a mission, we baptized 360!!!! That is a new mission record! We played baseball to celebrate the success!!
The woman we baptized on May 25th is Hermana Bertha. I've been working with her ever since I got to Guerrera with Elder Castro, seven months ago, and she was finally baptized this last part of May. The other baptism is of Hermano Luis Mendoza. We found him a while ago when we were going to La Junta one day and have been with him since then. He was baptized on May 28th. Pepe is progressing, but slowly. He has come to church 5 times now and is committed to keep the word of wisdom, so that's great!
This week's scripture is:
And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should comeunto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved.
