Time seems to just go by quicker and quicker! Good week, a lot has changed, let's get right to it!
Saturday, we had four baptisms!!! We have been having A LOT of success lately, knowing that this area is known as one of the toughest in the whole mission. We baptized Bianca who is 9. Her mom is inactive and her dad is a drunk, but her gma is in charge of the family history. Our other three baptisms were something that probably rarely happens: A grandma, her son, and the son's daughter. So it was a baptism of three generations. It was awesome and definitely a bendicion de Dios. Mariana, the grandma; her son, Willy, who got baptized even though he has a broken foot; and his daughter Keyling who's 10 and actually super smart. I love watching people take the decision to get baptized and have their white ropa on.
Miracle story how I met him. He lives on a corner of a street, and I had a strong feeling for about two weeks to contact his house, but never did it. Finally contacted it. He was the only one that wanted to listen to us (although he was studying to become a Father in the Catholic Church). In fact, he read all of 1 Nephi in one day. Long story shory, he got baptized last December, but his mom, dad, and sister didn't. But about 2 months ago, Elder Mataalii, my new comp, was in Granada and teaching them. Frederick was able to baptize him mom (who used to be a Nun), dad and sister. I learned that Alma 37:6 is true. He teaches the Melchizedek Priesthood classes, has his Patriarchal Blessing, been to the temple, and gets his call in December. And the family is going to the temple to get sealed when he gets home.
I love this work.
