There's Agency for Ya
Hello family and friends. This week was pretty cool. We had zone conference and kind of reviewed what we talked about in our zone leader meeting. We have a goal as a mission that everyone in December baptizes. The whole meeting was about what little things we can do different to get that done.
I had a chance to talk to President Becerra a little bit after. I've kind of gotten myself worked up recently wondering why everything isn't going better than I think it should be. The take away from our meeting is that when we work ourselves into knots, only God can untie them. We let him untie them when we hand ourselves over and stop thinking about ourselves. It was awesome.
This week, Leticia passed her baptismal interview. If she doesn't drink this week, she'll be baptized this upcoming.
We've been teaching Oralia and Delfino. Oralia started off super solid and Delfino not so much and now it's totally switched. Delfino wants to get baptized, Oralia doesn't want to get married and doesn't want to talk to us anymore because she knows that's what we're going to bring up eventually. They can't separate because of their young kids. It's kind of a mess and we need a massive miracle. They both know what God wants them to do. They both know it's all true. It's a little frustrating, but there's agency for ya.
Random: we picked up a guy named Rolf as an investigator. No joke. We had a pretty good lesson with him, and we'll be going over there again.
Thanks for all the love, support, and prayers.
