This week was great. The zone did great. We are working great. The only thing is that they are not doing too well is setting baptismal dates. My comp and I are going to do divisions to teach them and show them how to set dates.
Well my companion had changes. Elder A-- only lasted 1 month. But now I have a new companion. His name is Elder R--. He is a great elder. He's super obedient and a hard worker. He was born in Guatemala but had been living in Honduras for half of his life. He has spent the last 7 months in Quiche as zone leader. I didn't even know that he existed...hahaha. But we are doing some good work here in Xela Centro.
This week president is going to work with us. I actually invited him to come and work with him. We are working with a family that is so prepared for the gospel but the husband is being a stickler. The mom has had some unbelievable experiences telling her that this is the truth. She has been reading the Book of Mormon and she read the promise that Moroni gave at the end of the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10:4. She said that she was washing clothes one day and she was thinking about the Book of Mormon. The words of Moroni kept popping into her head "believe" "just believe" and she said that she felt someone next to her all dressed in white pointing to the Book of Mormon. WOW. She is so prepared and her daughters are going to church and the whole family goes to all the activities. This week we are going to go with president to visit them. Pray for us that we will be able to have the spirit with us. I am so thankful for the time that I have here in Guatemala preaching the gospel.
