So to start off we had transfers and we now have 2 new missionaries in the house. One from Peru and the other from Utah. It is a good change and we seem to get along pretty well. I am happy to have that change. The house seems to be more spiritual which is good. It isn´t always easy to stay focused but we do our best!
I am working to find the good balance of having fun but being as obedient as possible. Lately that has been a little bit hard but I keep working at it.
Today we played some baseball, though I just played catch really. My comp always wants to play so I just go with the flow. Then I got a nice nap. I also got some Passion Fruit juice. That is very good and we get juice a couple times a week now. I also found some cookies and cream powder soy milk which I have fallen in love with! So good (regular milk doesn´t last here really).
So on Saturday the Branch President´s 8 year old son was baptized. I was asked to participate in the conformation which was the first time for me here in the DR (I got to participate once with Alex Cheney´s baptism I remember!)
The Pimentel Family came to church and yesterday we reviewed what it takes to be baptized so now they know what they need to focus on. They feel good in church and we are going to keep helping them and doing our best so they can feel the blessings of the Lord. Miguel a 25 yr old single adult came to church. He is reading the Book of Mormon and we see potential for him if he truly wants to change is life. We are hoping he can make Dec. 6th with his church assistance and a true conversion and testimony. The Pimentel family we are working for the 13th or 14th of December if possible.
We also have the Fam Encarnacion. The mom came to church for like 1 and a half hours which was good. That was the first time. Supposedly the dad was on the way, but he had a problem. We pray next week they can make it and he can truly feel a desire. We are planning on watching the Joseph Smith video with both families this week. Half now, half later. We are excited for that, so they can have stronger testimonies or receive them.
On Saturday we also made dinner for Marilin and Jose Luis as a service. I made my pasta with salami and onion and garlic and potatoes with sweetened condensed milk as the sauce. It looked good.
We had fast Sunday which went well. Hno Marion (dad of Pimentel Fam) said he wanted to get up to share but didn´t know if he could but he said next time he will! That would have been so cool, but next time!
Too bad RSL lost big. Tough luck. Also too bad the Utes couldn´t pull off a big upset. Sounds like they had a good chance. Well gotta keep playing hard!
I can´t believe how quick the time is passing wow. It is weird. Days like weeks, weeks like days!
I am happy to be in the same area, as we have some great investigators. It isn´t always easy but it is good. I hope to keep helping people come unto Christ!
I am close to finishing Jesus the Christ. Only 4 chapters left! Wow that is crazy!
W o the W is holgazán which means lazy (more or less)
I hope everyone is doing well, especially all of my missionary buddies and their respective families. Be safe everyone!
I believe that is all so I hope that I got to questions and such!
