Week Eighty-Seven: June 18th, 2012

Dear Family,
Wow this week was so busy but in the end it was a good week. So the highlight of this week for our sector is that Marina finally got Baptized and confirmed. So that was awesome. We also have 3 more people who are preparing for baptism that are all progressing super good. Andrea is a friend of a recent convert and has a date for the 30th of June. She is going through a lot of trials with her friends and family but she is converted and excited to be baptized. She has been making a lot of changes in her life and they have been hurting but she knows that they are for her good in the end.
The next date we have is with Manuel who is the like a step grandpa of Francisca who just got baptized like 2 or 4 weeks ago. He is progress also by reading and going to church. He is also excited to get baptized the 30th. And we also have a baptismal date with Andrez, the son of Marina, for the 14th of July. He felt something special in the baptism of his Mom.
This past week we had interviews with President King and they went really well. President basically told me that I will probably be Elder Smith's last companion and then finish the mission here. It rained like crazy this past week but it was all the more fun. Things are going great. Elder Smith is doing really good. We have changes tomorrow we have to go to. Half our zone is getting changed out. So it'll be a lot of fun. Well I hope you guys have a great week.
