Numero 88 ~ "Why be a King when you can be a God?" - Eminem

Heyyyy fam! This week went by super fast. I didnt even feel it. It was a decent week for us here. 
We are in May now. The month of may we are calling it Miracle May because President has put a goal for the mission to baptize 306 people this month in the mission. He says for that to happen every companionship has to baptize at least 4 people. Everyone is really focused on getting this goal and doing everything possible to see a miracle this month of may. 
This week in our zone meeting the Stake President showed up and talked to us about his plans with the stake to help us complete goals. He pretty much just animated us and excited us to go out and work as hard as we could to get the goal. So the whole zone is really focused right now. The goal for the zone is to baptize 48 people. It is possible but it is going to take everything we got to do it. This is presidents last full month so he wants to see a big miracle. This mission is very capable of it. After our meeting the stake president invited us all to subway which is always a nice little cherry on top. 
I did divisions with the zls this week. I stayed in my area. We did good. We found a cool new family and put a baptismal date with them. There are 3 of them and they accepted the baptismal date for the 27th of May. We were really happy to have found them. The mom went to the church when she was little about 15 years ago and hasnt gone since but she was curious to see it now that is has grown a ton in these 15 years. This week they will be a focus with us to see if they are going to progress or not. Our plan is to work with as many members as we can to be able to meet all of their friends and family members that live around them. 
Elder Rowe shared something cool with me that I would like to share. He shared with me an Eminem quote that says "Why be a King when you can be a God?". Coming from Eminem its actually pretty wise. Sometimes we are focused on the worldly things and looking for worldly rewards when we should have our eyes set on the celestial rewards and the celestial blessings that the Lord has promised us. Our greatest desire should be try to live the way the lord wants us so that we are granted the many blessings that he has for us. 
Well i love you all very much! This week I will be chatting with you guys for the last time on Skype! Pretty crazy! Have a great week!
