|This week's baptisms.|
Familia y Amigos,
Que onda? (What’s up?) I hope everything is going super well, we had a normal week here in Bluefields, besides the fact that we went to Managua for the conference. Things are going well and the weather seems to be heating up a little bit but who knows because it is always hot. Ill let you know a little bit about what happened.
So on Wednesday morning we left here in Bluefields on plane. It was super nice to finally not go in panga (boat) and on bus. The plane wasn’t sketchy at all and was a nice 45 minute nap on the way over to Managua. The reason we went is because Presidente Russell called us on Sunday Night and asked if we could help out in the office, so on Wednesday we just worked in the office. It was super boring and a lot of sitting around. It made me feel like I wasn’t doing anything and I didn’t like it at all. We got everything prepped for the next day, because all of the missionaries had to be in one of the chapels (San Juan) at 6:30 in the morning so that we could bus everyone up to the chapel in the North mission (Waspan). We did get to eat at Price Smart when I was there, which was awesome. It’s like the same thing as Costco so I got some samples and just hung out.
On Thursday we woke up early and got to San Juan to make sure that all the missionaries were there. It was really awesome seeing some people there, I got to talk to Elder Collado, Elder Hernandez, and Elder Sacalxot for a while. It was nice seeing all of my old companions and hanging out with them for a minute. I didn’t get any pictures because things were moving really fast. We got bussed up to the conference, and got to listen to Bishop Dean M. Davies. He gave a lesson about how we can find revelation in the scriptures. It was nice to be able to listen to a servant of the lord. There was a huge difference between the missionaries in our mission compared to the missionaries in the North Mission, it was interesting. Right when the conference ended, the Bluefields people got sent straight to the airport so we didn’t really get to talk to any of the missionaries or eat with the rest of the mission.
On Saturday we ended up having 2 baptisms, of Ayoleth, who got married in the morning and then baptized, and Jerey, who is the nephew of a member here in the ward. References from members really are the dopest baptisms! Ayoleth was a reference, and the majority of the baptisms we are having have been references. Working with members is key, and that is why Bluefields has a lot of baptisms, because the members work with us.
Sunday we were blessed again to bring 10 to church.
This week is going to be a week of finding people to teach. We have kind of brought the majority of our investigators to the waters of baptism so we need some new people to teach! I hope all of you have a wonderful week, and all goes well!
I love you all,
