This Saturday Daniel is getting baptized!! Vamos!!! We had two killer lessons with him this week and we taught him the commandments and faith and repentance and baptism. Every lesson we have had without fail we take a member with us. It has been extra good because the guy lives alone and has no family here. We have a church open house on Saturday too so it should all go really well if the members invite their friends! They love us, and if we stay here another transfer, hopefully we can work even better with them to baptize more people.
Yesterday we had a sick activity in the plaza in the afternoon. We had the stake choir come and we got all the missionaries together and had members come too and do divisions and share the light the world video. It went really well, we talked to a ton of people and the choir sang really good and this girl was playing the violin too. I took these two kids with me to hand out the little cards and ended up talking to several people for a long time. Just about killed these two deacons haha I don´t know if they´ll want to go on a mission as much anymore haha.
On Saturday we ate pollo al disco with Leo and Carla that was way good. Basically slow cooking chicken with a ton of other stuff in a big bowl over a fire.
I am really enjoying the mission and its going to be sick to be here for another Christmas. I think that during Christmas we really need to be focused on others. Its a sensitive time for those who are less fortunate, and especially for those without the hope and light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives. My faith in the Savior has grown so much and I am so grateful for what He has taught me throughout my time in the mission.
¨Faith is a gift of God bestowed as a reward for personal righteousness. It is always given when righteousness is present, and the greater the measure of obedience to God´s laws the greater will be the endowment of faith.¨ Bruce R. McConkie
