I hope everyone had a great fourth of July! I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN! I felt very grateful to be an American on Saturday. All of us gringos were super pumped on Saturday for the fourth of July. I wish i could have seen some fireworks, but I guess i will have to wait a little bit longer.
This week was a great week. We saw a really cool miracle.
So we have been working with this guy named Ceforino for a lot of time. He is the husband of a member and he has had problems with drinking for a very long time. He would quit then fall, then quit, then fall again and was like that for a long time. They werent married either because of the divorce of the member wasnt finished. He would tell us all the time how he wanted to change his life. So two weeks ago the divorce finally was finished and they were ready to get married. He has been clean of drinking for about a month now and is completely different. He is now a new man. He has more energy, he is happier, his family is happier, everything is better. On saturday, we got to see him get baptised. We got them married first and then had his baptism. I have never seen someone so excited to get into the waters of baptism. He had a spirit with him that I had never seen in him before. It was a very cool experience. He even came to church with a white shirt and tie on Sunday to get confirmed. There is just something about seeing people change their lives for the better. To see people humble themselves and look for the Lord. It always makes me feel so good that I can be apart of that and help people come unto Christ and just be happy. To live a happy life and be able to overcome challenges in our lives.
Also, we had changes this week. I am still in my area but I got a new companion. His name is Elder Chin and he is from Guatemala. I went to the airport to drop off Elder Choque and pick up Elder Chin. I am Elder Chin's "Puerto Dad" haha. He has got about 14 months in the mission. I am excited to be with him. He is a cool dude. Well, thats what I got for you guys this week. I love you all. Talk to you next week!!
