CONGRADULATIONS!!! :) Another year down! i'm going to enjoy another year without worrying about school but then a year from now i'll be talking about it! so yeah crazy to think that i'm gonna be signing up for college classes next year! pretty exciting! but yeah oh investigators! We have found a lot of good progressing investigators and some families that we are working with. We have been getting lots of lessons with them and also we've found some inactive members that are wanting to come back to the church so we've been working with them too. Our first investigator that has a fecha is Robyn. He is 17 and is very humble. He lives with his grandma because both his parents died. He studys the Bible a lot and knows it really well! He's progressing a lot and is wanting to change his life! We have taught him the law of chastity and has hid from his girlfriend so that they wouldn't have relations. He has his baptismal date for the 9th of June and is very excited. Our next investigator is named Yesenia. She is very interested in the gospel and wants her family to start learning together and going to church. Her and her daughter are sharing with us as often as we set appointments and her husband is an Evangelical who works in the capital. We are working hard to get him there when he's there and to involve him and see how his family is changing and growing! Hopefully he will soften his heart and share with us more. We also have the family Mejia, we haven't been able to share with them this week because they've been gone for the elections but we shared with them last night and everyone is still going strong. The wife really wants her family to be together forever and teach her kids a good example to follow. The husband may be going back to the United States to work for 7 or 8 months so it's going to be an interesting situation but we're still going to be working hard. The next investigator that is really progressing is named Elizabeth. She's around 19 and lives with her sisters. She told us in the last lesson that she prayed and got an answer that this is the true church and wants to continue learning! We're working to get her to church and more members to come with us! She's progressing very good though! We've recieved a few references that we're going to start teaching as soon as all the election stuff finishes. But yeah that's it for the investigators this week! well i was hoping to have more emails this week but i understand cause no one was expecting me that's what happend! but thanks for everything everyone! You guys rock! talk to you all next week! i love you all so much! :)
