Buenas Tardes, Mundo!

This last week has been excellent! My comp and I have been looking for new families to work with, and we´re finding them!!! I don´t know if I´ve mentioned it, but our Mission President has promised us that if we have 5 progressing families, we´ll be able to baptize at least one every month. So far we´re up to four, just one short! We have one that is más o menos, but we want to find one more that we feel has truly been prepared by the Spirit.

Our most positive family is Enrique, Delia, and their daughter, Giselle (sp). They have a baptismal goal for the 4th of June and we´re all working really hard to make it happen. We just need a wedding, a few more lessons, and a commitment or two.

Another family is in a new area that we discovered last week. They went to a conference that we had in Matagalpa and they really enjoyed it. The wife wants to get married and baptized, but the husband isn´t so sure about marriage. This week we´re going to go with a member to visit them again.

Something strange about this area is that nobody wants to get married. We´ve met several couples now that have the desire to get baptized, but will not get married. They say that they need more time to think about it....we often tell them that after 3 kids and 15 years of living together, they´ve had enough time to think about it!

Well, I´ve gotta get off to the store so I can get back to work!

Love you all!
