It was another good week and the time really seems to be flying by. We have 6 investigators with baptismal fechas that I really think could go through. Gaby and Yoelis continue to progress very well (15 November), they're reading in 2 Nephi, coming to church each week, and they have both received answers that the church is true. They even share the gospel with their friends, which is how we found Victoria. Victoria is also reading in the Book of Mormon, coming to church each week, and praying to know if the church is true. We often have lessons with the 3 of them and Gaby and Yoelis help us teach Victoria and share their testimonies.
Our other three fechas are the children of the Familia Santana: Diana, Alberto, and Adalaida (8 November). Diana is reading the Book of Mormon, and the younger two are reading in the Book of Mormon storybook. They're such a wonderful family. We're hoping to reactive their father, Luis Jose, so that he can receive the priesthood and baptize his children.
Interesting things that happened this week:
- We had Sunday school in Creole. It was just us missionaries and 5 Haitians. Two of them are named Leonel and Yulissa. Leonel is recently reactivated and Yulissa is preparing to be baptized. First, however, they need to get visas for the DR (they're not technically legal here) and then get married. All the missionaries in our district are contributing a bit of money to help them out.
- I fell down a hill and got completely covered in mud. I had to go home and change my clothes. Then the next day I fell down another hill and scraped up my knees. I had to go home because I bleeding all over. That was embarrassing, but it's all good.
All my love,
