As I have said in the past few weeks, Mixquiahuala has been exploding with baptisms lately. This week:
*insert photo of Porfirio's baptism here; darn camera*
Porfirio was baptized! Everybody was super excited for his baptism (for the increased priesthood in the ward). Porfirio went around inviting everything that moved to go, and yes, we had an incredible turnout. Lots of support from the ward.
I feel like I have so many stories from this week, but my time is short, so I'll give some brief summaries. We had leadership council and zone training which went swimmingly; we went on exchanges with the assistants which was fun; I took an hour and a half bus ride with one of the young men to do a baptismal interview which the investigator didn't pass because he drank coffee the day before, Elder Espinoza doesn't even need me anymore due to his knowledge of the area and our ability to do splits, Emanuel received a strong confirmation of his need to be baptized and is totally good to go for the 18th, and Natali (the 15-year-old girl from last week's email) is somewhat coming around. Don't worry, my guard is still up, but she sat in on our lesson with the Portillo family yesterday. She didn't say much of anything (as usual), but she was there. We'll see what happens.
I stole some pictures off the mission blog of Elder Espinoza and I. Look at those handsome devils.
And here's the zone after Zone Training
And I believe those are all the stories I have from this week. If anyone cares for more details, I may potentially have time next week to tell more.
