Dear Friends and Family,
Last night, Jordan got baptized!!! It was awesome to be a part of his conversion, but it technically didn't count for us since he lived out of the ward boundaries, however we did teach him just about every lesson. He was part of a family that is just recently coming back to church (being reactivated). Hopefully they will stay this time.
As far as Mary and the family goes, we called her and texted her and even knocked on her door before church to get the whole family to go. However, during church, we get a text from her that says "I just got home and I'm hungry." It was pretty hard not to be frustrated right then. Maybe we will have to drop them.
As far as other investigators go, we have this really sweet old lady that we've been teaching, and last night when we went over, she had this really good soup with rice and beef (called asopao) and hot chocolate and tamales. She is so sweet. She even said, well I know you are far from family, so you can just come here, and I'll make you something. People here are soo nice.
Also, one really cool thing that happened this week was that we got to deliver banana bread to all the neighbors of one of the members in the ward. It was so cool because a lot of them opened the door and actually let us say a few sentences!! Maybe I should just make cookies and pass them out to talk to people.
Another really cool miracle is that we got to help a family in the ward move out and clean up a little bit, and they gave us soooo much food!! It was such a blessing because both Sister Castro and I have barely any money left on our cards.
