and Victor finally got married this week! YIPEEEEEEE haha it was
awesome! They looked great, in their own very them way. lol I'll send the
The only down side is that with all their friends and family
staying at their house visiting and wanting to celebrate (in the non-Mormon way), they caved to pressure and drank over the weekend. So, we
had to postpone their baptism date for the next weekend, and unfortunately, now my comp won't be able to be there to see them get
baptized with Akori, who turns eight on the 20th!
We had a super good lesson with them last night on repentance, I
think it was a break through lesson because, although we'd taught it a
million times before and tried to explain it in every way we could think
of, they didn't understand the need to repent, or the "why" of
repentance. But with how the lesson went last night, and with the help of
a member accompanying us and the spirit guiding the lesson, we were able
to share experiences and explain things in a new way and judging by
their responses, I think they finally are beginning to understand. We
also explained to them that faith is required as well, and as we have
the faith to live the commandments, we begin to understand them more and
more, so they committed to repent and continue preparing and making the
changes necessary to get baptized.
This is my last week with my companion, she will be heading home
next Monday... ¡triste! [sad] I love her SO much! I can't even begin to
explain how much I have learned from her! She is an awesome missionary
and will continue being an awesome member after the mission. Sad to see
her leave! Excited to see what opportunities and changes the Lord has
in store for me and my new companion, who ever she may be! lol
Fam bam, love you lots! The gospel is true! Keep on keeping on!
Give lots of love to Quinta for me! You are always in my prayers!
