Week 71: Good News!

Hey everyone!! This was a great and hot week here in Neiva! I’m gonna jump right in to the good news!

So Luis went to church this week for the third time.  We also taught him and passed by his house every day to see how he was doing.  And he is doing GREAT!  He is getting himself ready to get baptized this Saturday! Woo hoo! He is doing super well with his prayers, his reading, and his desire to get baptized and follow the Lord´s example.  He has been following the commandments we’ve taught him and most of all he has changed.  He was a little bit unsure about his baptism, but he told us an experience that he had the night right before church, and feels it was an answer from God.  He then didn’t doubt his baptism and he’s going to enter into the covenant this week.  What a blessing!

We are still teaching Sara and Angelo.  Juliana´s son hasn’t arrived to Neiva yet.  The whole family is super interested in the church and are still planning on their baptism! We’re excited for them!  On Saturday we taught them the plan of salvation.  After they gave us dinner! Some arroz con pollo!  It was delicious!  It’s like a rice with shredded chicken and some vegetables.  Super delish!

This week as a zone we did just as good as the last week!  In these three weeks of January, we have found 310 new investigators and have set 151 baptismal dates! Crazy!!  There’s just something about this zone that is super animated to work and find!  That makes me super happy to see them have so much success!  I love it!  Elder Centurion and I don’t even know what to say it’s just jaw dropping!  I pray we continue having this much success.  It means there are many of Heavenly Father's children ready to listen to this gospel and I know this makes the Lord happy.

We found the son of a less active member that told us he’s ready to be baptized.  We set up a baptismal date of February 4th.  Although we’re not sure if that will work, we are still working on getting him to attend the whole block of meetings.  His name is Camilo and he’s super pumped to get baptized!  What a blessing!

Thanks to everything for all that you do! Love you so much!
