Letter from September 29, 2014
Back story is that this was the last week to baptize for the month (obvio) but also for the cambio so we went lights out looking for someone to baptize Saturday and literally saw miracle after miracle. One of them being Nelly. An 80 year old woman who reminds me so much of Grandma Suzy. I think they are long lost soul sisters. Anyways, we found her Thursday and talked her in to getting baptized Sunday. ha she is a real hoot. She had tried getting baptized before buuuut couldn't do it so we tried it agin. With the same results unfortunately but man did we see miracles trying to get her to the font and giving our all to this work and to the Lord.
She is a fireball and after we celebrated with cake and kept telling her that the third time's the charm. So, we are going to try again the 25th. Hopefully, with better results then.
Sunday morning we were crazy stressed with trying to heat the font, going to her house to pick her up etc. etc. that we had no time to go and bring our investigators to church. and I was really so frustrated because we worked so hard this week! En serio! there was one day we left to proselyte at 8:30 in the morning! we are working more than 12 hours a day! and I just felt frustated that we were working so hard and nothing was coming out of it. But then, our cute family that we had found Saturday came to church! They also committed to be baptized for the first of November- We really just had soo many tender mercies of the Lord.
Ha we also commited someone on Tuesday to be baptized Saturday (he accepted) and then totally tried to avoid us! hahah so we literally stalked his house ALL day Saturday. no lie. haha We just sat out there and waited for his sister to come home, and then changed his baptisimal date because he wants to wait. But I feel like it was a good strategy.
haha Hna alonso and I have no shame and are sharing this message with everyone, and the Lord sure is blessing us as we do it!

I can't believe I ate this!...
