Lost without my Agenda!!!

Monday July 14, 2014
Hola family and friends! 

This was a great weekend. Manuel got baptized!

It was a happy day for all of us. I feel super grateful that I got to be a part of his conversion. He was one of those golden, prepared people and I know that he will be a great member and future leader of the church here in Mezapa. We are starting to teach his daughters and the goal is that he will be able to have the priesthood soon and get to baptize them :) How awesome is that? Yesterday we were at his house and he told us just how grateful he was to have finally found the true church of God. He says that after being baptized he feels much more secure in his relationship with God and His understanding of the gospel :)

It has been RAINING!!! raining lots and lots. And then when it finishes the sun comes out and the whole world just steams.... haha there has also been huge lightning storms. The other night it was right above our heads and we went outside to watch (the power went out so it was pitch black and than huge flashes of light and thunder). Haven´t ever experienced lightning like that before. 

Cool story.  We have been teaching a mom and daughter that are Catholics.  The mom loves to listen but I'm not so sure she's interested.  But her eleven year old daughter read the book of Mormon and then prayed about it.  When we asked her about her experience she said that she had a dream that she was walking down a path and that all of a sudden a man dressed all in white appeared to her and though it scared her at first he told her that the book of Mormon was true. When she woke up she said that now she knows it's true! It's an experience that she'll always be able to remember.  I've found on my mission just how pure and innocent the faith is of the young.  No wonder we're told to become like little children!!

This week has been a little rough since we have´t had our missionary agendas! Oh no! We haven´t gotten our new ones for this transfer and we feel like chickens with our heads cut off. This work is a work of order and if we can´t plan very well things just feel off. We did our best with what we had... haha it´s crazy just how much one becomes accustomed to planning out every hour of every day and how lost one feels when unable to do so in the same way. I'm going to have to get myself one of this return missionary planners when i get home... haha

sure love you al and hope you have a great week!

Until next week
