Week 14- Transfers have come and gone!

Transfers have come and gone! Elder Moore and I will be spending another 6 weeks at least together. I´m glad, because we are finally getting in the rhythm of things, and are working together in unity. I know that we´ll be an instrument in bringing to pass great things here in these six weeks.

Last P-Day we had a Family Home Evening with a member family, the Ward Mission Leader and his Wife, and a couple that we are teaching. We acted out the story of Nefi going to retrieve the Brass Plates. It was sick.

 Our investigators loved it, and they are making real progress. I don´t remember if I´ve already talked about them, but his name is Carlos, and he has been going to church every Sunday since we started teaching him. He already knows that things we teach are true. He´s felt a real answer from heavenly father, and he wants to be baptized. His girlfriend´s name is Genesis. She was baptized when she was 8, and hasn´t gone to church since the beggining of time. We are working to reactivate her, to baptize him, to get them married, to get them sealed with their daughter for time and all eternity, and to help them endure to the end. It took me a while, but I know that his is not a baptizing mission. This is a mission where we help families get to the Temple so they can make everlasting covenants with God.

This week we had exchanges again. AGAIN Elder Blanco came here, and Elder Moore went to work in Eloy Alfaro. I´m really happy that Elder Humphries and Elder Blanco are still in my zone and that we meet as a zone every week.

I´m so thankful that I will have hot water to shower in for another transfer. Elder Moore said that we have the only hot water in the zone. We went to Monecristi on Sunday so that Elder Moore could interview one of the sisters´ investigators for baptism. She is having surgery this week, and we gave her a blessing of health.

Oh, and something really funny happened this week. Elder Moore and I were walking down the street, when we passed some police vehicles in the middle of the road. As we kept walking, we noticed more a crowd of people standing on both sides of us. We continued walking, and the number of people on each side increased. After about 5 minutes of walking, we were worried about how we were going to get out of the street. We looked at the sea of people on either side of us when suddenly, we heard a drum line. We looked ahead, and beheld countless of young cheerleaders dancing heading straight toward us. We panicked! "Oh no, we can´t see this!" "Oh no, there are people here that are going to wonder what two Elders are doing watching this parade!" We both did a 180 turn, and beheld an old woman standing in the sea of people. She beckoned to us, saying, "Come this way!" We hurried to her, and a gap opened up between all of the people. We were free. A few minutes later we had dinner, and I tried salchipapas for the first time. They were too good.
