Hey everybody!It seems like each week that passes here brings more and more miracles! This week went by SUPER fast, but it was full of successes and miracles.
We had a district meeting of this week, and in this meeting we always report to our district leader how we´re doing in our area, how our investigators are doing, etc. At this point in time, no one in our district had investigators that were ready to get baptized during the week. At the end of the meeting, our district leader told us that there was at least one person in each of our areas that was ready to get baptized that week. We all thought he was crazy, but he told us for some reason he felt like it was true, even though he wasn´t sure why.
|My district leader. He's from Hawaii, so that's pretty cool|
Even though at first I thought he was crazy, I decided to roll through my head all of the people that we´d been teaching to see if maybe one of them would be ready to get baptized. Obivously someone can´t get baptized without going to church at least a couple times, so I thought of all of the people we´ve ever brought to church. I thought of Oscar, an old man who we´d been teaching a lot with Elder Sánchez. We taught him a ton, he´d been to church with us three times, and had wanted to be baptized. The problem was that he wasn´t legally married to his wife, and his wife´s identification papers were so messed up that it would be extremely difficult and almost impossible to get them married. I don´t know why, but I felt like he was the person in our area that needed to get baptized.
|Oscar and Maria get married|
|They can't write so we used their finger prints|

|Wedding of Azucena! She was an investigator of the hermanas that we helped teach a little bit with Elder Sánchez. She got married on Monday and baptized on Saturday!|
