On Saturday Eric got baptized! I´m so happy that the Lord found him and helped him make it to the pathway to Eternal Life. He was prepared for us when we met him, and excercised his faith from the first lesson forward. The ward has accepted him well and the young mens´ president especially has made a great effort to fellowship him. I´m so happy for him and for his family that is returning to activity in the Church. The baptism was on Saturday at 6 and he arrived at 4:50 ready to go! He was a little nervous, so we practiced and helped him relax. One of the young men gave a great talk about baptism in the service. It all turned out perfectly. Yesterday Eric was confirmed by the Brother Altamirano, the young mens´ president. Sunday was looking like the best day of my mission!
Yesterday we set out to work and after a couple good lessons our plans tanked and for the last hour of the day we were knocking on doors. At about 8:45 we knocked on a door and the lady that answered was not super happy to see us and said that we can´t preach at 11 at night because we scare people. We made it about 3 blocks and a police car stopped us and 3 policemen jumped out and made us approach the vehicle. They said that a neighbor saw two shady characters and thought we were trying to rob someone, haha! Luckily the policemen were good guys and they let us off with a warning :)
Another highlight was the Locro activity and the Family Home Evening in the ward. There were lots of members and investigators. It was great! We played scripture jeopardy with the men on one team and the women on the other. Things got heated! The members that are usualy calm and composed were jumping and screaming. The men won!!! It was a really great week. We also had a zone conference and I got to see Elder Beutler and Elder Hanson from Arroyo Seco! I missed those guys. The conference was amazing. This week was just packed with meetings and activities. Have a great week! Congrats to Naomi for graduating!
