Another week in the mission field. This change is going by way fast.
We started out the week giving service on our P-day in the morning to N and her mom Judith so that she will first give permission for N to get baptized and secondly to start receiving the lessons again. As part of our plan, we also watched "Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration" on Wednesday night in the church to help her know a little bit more of Joseph Smith, who he was, and how he lived. We challenged her that night to baptism and she said yes. We asked her what she lacks and she told us she needs to pray about it. We asked N as well and she basically said she´s already ready. We still haven´t received permission because she was gone the rest of the week, but hopefully she will give it before the next fecha bautismal in January.
We have started working a little bit more in San Francisco and will start to work in San Antonio the following week. They are municipalidades but are relatively far from the capilla so we haven´t worked as much out there. We still aren´t going to spend a whole lot of time, but at least one day in SF and another day in SA so that we can get the work going out there. We have had some successful contacting efforts in SF this past week. We have found this "golden family", but I don´t want to jinx it (the adversary always puts obstacles in the way). They are married, the husband read and understand the folleto and the necessidad of the Restoration. We challenged them to be baptized and instead of telling us "I´ve already been baptized" he instead phrased it this way mas o menos: "Yes, but I´ve already been baptized, but is it possible to be baptized again?"...we explained to him the importance of priesthood authority again showing him a fake 10 Lempiras and he then accepted to be baptized. He is super pilas, knows the bible well, and most importantly, they are married!!! We´ll see how it goes.
We have an old investigator named Ithat was pilas but for some reason we haven´t taught him in more than 6 weeks. We called him the week before but he was busy. This Tuesday at 9:35 during daily planning, he called us and we set up a cita. We challenged him to be baptized in January and he went to church on Sunday. Hopefully he can stay animated and we will see how it goes.
We went to Lago Yojoa today and ate pescado frito con tajadas. Yum. I don´t know why, but I really like pescado frito. We ate lunch at a restuarant right by the water. Fun day.
Well, that´s all I have. I can´t wait to talk to you guys this Thursday!!! Cheque leque!
