Four in the morning...[Aug. 17, 2015]

This week the family that we are teaching in Tepatlaxco went to church, but it was a bit of a battle. In the lesson that we had Tuesday(that took a while to remember), we told them that it was possible that we would go to church with them Sunday and we asked them if they wanted to go. They replied that they did and that started the planning of how we would get them there. It was slightly difficult, but thanks to a dedicated ward mission leader who drove us there at 5:30 in the morning, we were able to pull it off, though we had to wake up at 4am to be ready on time.

We were incredibly surprised to arrive there to find out that they were all ready to leave even though it was so early in the morning. We took a photo in the car as we were going and I put it here... it should be below. We got to the chapel about an hour early, so we decided to do a tour of everything there and we also showed them how to sing hymns and everything. The great thing about them getting there earlier than the members is that they met the majority of them as they came in.

At the end of church, they seemed really happy and wanted to come every week even though it will be a bit difficult with money problems and all. The ward got really excited in ward counsel and it seemed like everyone now wants to go to Tepatlaxco with us. I guess I can't complain about that.

Apart from that, the sisters in our ward had 2 baptisms this week that were fairly unplanned much beforehand. We were also going to have one, but we were still missing some commandments when we were going to have the interview. I was thinking that we should just continue on with the interview anyway because I felt like she was ready and everything, but my companion told me like he felt like it wasn't a good idea. I pondered on it a little bit and it just felt wrong. We decided that it would be better to put off the baptism for 2 weeks due to stake conference that we have this coming week. Probably one of the most important things we can due in missionary work is to follow the spirit to know what God wants us to do.

Well, I am out of time, so I'll talk to you next week.
