So, this week, we got WET. With a capital WET. It's been raining like CRAZY! Once I forgot to bring my paraguas, and it was raining goats and llamas, but we had an appointment, so I told my companion, we were going to run to the house, where I would change and then we'd go to the appointment. So, in the 5 blocks from where we were to the house, I got soaked to the bone. More the soul. Haha. First time I get so wet in a suit. It was fun, but I think I'm okay not repeating the experience. Haha. I've been more careful about keeping my umberella with me at all times and in all things and in all places. ;)
This week has been AMAZING!!! We've seen so many blessings with referrals from members and from investigators, and everyone else. :) We currently have 5 baptismal dates for the 23rd of February, and 2 or 3 more that we need to invite, but haven't had the chance. It's been amazing. Yesterday we had our first lesson with Jorge, a 16 yr old who was living with his non-member mom, but is now living with his dad, who is a member. In the first lesson, we invited him to be baptized on the 23rd (in less than 2 weeks!), and he said "Sí. De una." Which is basically like saying, "Yeah. At once." Or, right off. For sure. Something like that. Anyway, he's really prepared. He's even been going to seminary every day. :) Gloria is still on track for the 23rd, but her son, Santiago isn't sure. We've been praying a lot to find out what his concern is, or what's holding him back. We'll have to see...
We're also still working with Isabel, but we found out this past week that she isn't married, so we're hopefully going to talk about eternal families this week, and invite them to be married. She's been coming every sunday for about a month now, and is really enjoying the church, but is a little unsure about being baptized. Her sons have also enjoyed the church, but we haven't been able to teach them. We haven't met her husband either, so hopefully we'll be able to have a Noche de Hogar this week and teach them all at the same time. :)
The work is going really well. We've seen a lot of blessings. The field really is white. There are prepared people out there. We just need to find them. :)
So. Say hi to the snow and the cold for me. I'll just be down here...taking all the Vitamin C I can and inviting everyone to come unto Christ. :)
Love y'all.
Elder Cannon
