All in God's timing
This week was absolutely crazy. We had two baptismal dates ready for Saturday the 14th and were all ready to get interviews done and everything. Then Satan dropped a huge bomb and it blew up into pieces....Edit, is not married, has not been for 30 years, and doesn´t want to be.....that doesn´t work! Then Enrique said that he didn´t want to be baptized because he didn´t feel 100% still. He’s been like that for the past 5 weeks and we were trying to explain to him that sometimes it just takes a step of faith to know it´s true, (that step being the steps down into the baptismal font). He didn´t want to though. We prayed like a ful!! ( a lot) He ended up actually choosing his own fecha (date) to work towards... 19th of Dec. I probably will not be there but we are still hoping and praying for the best!
We challenged basically everyone we talked to to baptism this week. We REALLY REALLY REALLY need to find people that are ready! We were challenged in our district meeting to do so and It´s actually pretty fun. You just start talking to people in the street, get to know them a bit, develop some sort of a relationship AND WABAM!!! Baptism!! Most people were all like, "what the??" while two crazy gringos are staring at you with cheezy grins. And some others were all like,"hmmmm....maybe if God tells me." it didn´t really work as well as we wanted to, but we shall press on!
Life is great as always! I love Chile. The language is still kicking my rear but I am still driving through with a ton of paciencia. I love all of you and if there is one thing I could say to you after this week, it´s, "Have Faith and Be Happy!"
