|Matt and Elder Garcia in Sabancuy|
its good to be writing you again. its remarkable how fast the weeks
are flying by.
i loved the pics of powel that you sent! not gunna lie, i´m pretty
jealous, i cant believe its been almost two years since the last time
i went swimming! and the pics of powell look so great. i cant wait
to be able to go boating! -- how was the water? was it higher or
lower than last year?
glad to hear you all had fun and everyone was safe!
This week went very well. We had a baptism! woot. we visited one of
our investigators A tuesday and had a super spiritual
lesson. she´s living right now with her aunt, who is a
member and so she´s been coming to church with her aunt the last few
weeks, and we´ve been teaching her. we invited her to be baptized
this saturday and she accepted.
she was baptized sunday morning before church and it was an awesome
service. her aunt gave a talk and it was super powerful and then the
stake president confirmed her a member of the church! it was great.
and she´s super excited.
she´s going to be such a great memeber. she´s got an awesome
testimony of the restoration and sunday after her baptism and the
church meetings, - she paid her tithing! which is one of the best
indicators of someone with a testimony!
i´m really grateful that the lord let me witness a part of her
conversion. that after so much time of working here in sabancuy we
could see someone accept the message! and i´m excited because i
think her baptism is going to open the door for other members of her
family to accpet the gospel
- as for transfers, we wont know where i´m going till sunday, and i´ll
be changing areas tuesday morning of the next week! this´ll be my
last week in sabancuy
elder garcia is doing well. a bit more excited now, but still isnt
really working at 100%. hés headed home in 6
weeks! one foot in the plane one foot in the mission. its been
a bit rough keeping him active these past few weeks, but the
day of redemption is coming soon!
i´m pumped for the next transfer, to see where i´ll be going, and to
keep working. every new area is a chance to start over, and i´m
excited to be the most dedicated most effective i can be in my next
hope you all have a great week and i´ll write more next week!
ps. i havent gotten ronettes package but i´m guessing i´ll recieve it this
- as for the package you´re sending if you can send me peanut butter
and jelly it´d be great. and whatever else you send will be awesome.
i dont need anything to finish the mish supplies wise. i bought an
awesome case for my scriptures this week made of alligator skin-- so i
might take out a bit of money cuz i´m pretty much broke now haha.
also if you could send me weekly election updates that would be nice
