Numero 72 ~ Playing the Piano and gettin' robbed

Hey fam! It was another good week here in Puerto! We saw some great miracles this week!
I guess I will start with the most recent miracle. Yesterday we were at church and we had already started the meeting and we were about to start the sacrament and then guess who walks in?! Mario. Yes, Mario. Mario came to church. We baptized him in November and he hadnt been able to come to church since then. He walked in and he was able to get confirmed. I was so suprised to see him go. We had called him earlier and reminded him but I never thought he was going to go. I couldnt believe it for a second haha I was pretty suprised. Pretty sweet miracle. 
We taught over 50 lessons to specifically recent converts and less actives this week. We went to town because we need our branch to get the attendance up. The good thing was that the attendance did go up. We had like 85 in the morning and about 50 in the afternoon. So in total about 130 people. Thats better that we have had in a long time. We found so many less actives this week. We printed out the simi of every member in the branch that is registered. There are a lot and i mean a lot. Its hard because there are a lot that just dont want anything with our church for some little thing that happened and they didnt receive us but we did find some positive ones that came to church so we will keep helping those ones and keep working to find more this week. 
We put a couple baptismal dates this week. One of them came to church too which was good. It was kind of hard to get him to go but he went. I think he liked it. He went to the Miskito meeting so I didnt really understand much but it sounded good haha. I am always on the piano during the meetings too haha.
We had a couple other investigadors go too. Kelvin went, the one that only speaks english. He is sweet. I wish you could hear him talk. Also, my recent convert Efrain spoke in church. He did a great job. We gave him a white shirt too so he was looking with a shirt and tie. 
We worked pretty hard this week. Litlle by little we are going. We dont have anyone to baptize this week but next week we got a couple possibilities. This week is really important to start finding for next month. 
Oh last thing haha this week i almost got robbed my first time in my mission. So i was texting someone in the road and some dude walks up right close to me and tries to grab the phone out of my hand but i had a good grip on it so he didnt get it so he faces me up and he pulls out a machete and puts it up to my face and his buddy pulls out a knife and they keep asking me for the phone but i kept telling them that it was broken and it didnt work and once they figured out that we didnt look scared they just put it away and walked away. It got my heart beating pretty good but nothing happened haha. I just got to be a little more careful in the street.
Well thats what I got for you guys this week. I hope you are all doing well! I miss you guys and love you guys so much!
