July 8

   Well this week was a great one we had the oppurtunity to have a baptism with our investigator J.... Habiendo Sido.... So that was a really cool moment we actually had quite the time getting him to his baptism. haha so we had an appt. with him Saturday night at 8 to make sure that all would be well for his baptism and it turned out he never showed so we called him all night but he never answered. So in the morning we went by his house at 8 in the morning to wake him up so we get him rolling and had his ride scheduled for 830. So as it turns out he went back to sleep after we left and our ride called us and let us know what was going on so we gave him a call and he told us he wasn't going to show until 11:30 because he needed to rest and I was being a bit bold with him to tell him why he needed to be there in order for his baptism and so he hung up on me and wouldn't answer after that. So we call the ride and tell them to not leave until they have him and they say they can't because Hno de la yata is on the high council and had to be on time. So we start asking every member to give us a ride and it got to the point where the opening himno started and we still have noboody. And finally a member agreed to help us out so we get over there. Get J dressed and he came with us and he apologized for wanting to sleep and the baptism turned out really really well aftrer it happened he told us his misisona is to get his neighbors baptized too. haha So we're very excited for him to get rolling.
   Next cool thing that happened this week we we're using the bathroom at a stripes (gas statino) and we were sitting on the benches for a bit planning on what we could do because some things fell and we had no where to go and as we sat there a lady came up to us and asked if we were mormans...... (Best question ever to hear as missionaries) So we get her info and ask her if she's a member and she says no but I want to be..... And me and my comp are just praying please be in our area!!! So turns out she is and she has investigated the church up farther north in Texas and told us that the day we talked to her we saved her because she has had a lot of trials in her life and they were really starting to weigh down on her. She is coming off of a divorce and has two autistic kids and she just really needed that little pick up that we gave her by being right where the lord wanted us to be. So we're very excited to have the chance to apply matt11:28-30 in her life I know she'll really need the help of christ in her life Msh 24 is are next chapter we'll be leaving her with.
   But other then that that's what happened this week. We actually got the 4th of July to work. But we could only visit members. We just shared a couple of scriptures about independance day with everyone in 1 nephi 13 and i wanna say 2 nephi 10 or 11ish and people enjoyed to see that in the book of mormon just  another little testimony of the bom it prophecys of the revoultionary war. But that's too bad about grandma falling off her bike, that's all your fault momma jk. Hope all will be well with grandma that's too bad she was bleeding all over. But hope you have a great week I love you all. nos vemos. les amo
