Ripley`s Believe It Or Not - July 18, 2016
This last week we were planning on having a baptism but we decided that it would be better to have it on Friday this week. The Sister Sandra and her daughter Wendoly will be getting baptized by their son Humberto who we baptized the last week! It will be really special. Then the next day on Saturday we will be going to the temple and Humberto will be entering to do baptisms for the dead! He is super excited and has been helping us this week with some of the lessons that we have had! He is wanting to leave on the mission when he finishes his schooling. He is amazing!
Pretty funny story, one day we were walking to a appointment that we had and a drunk guy stopped us in the street and started talking to us forever. I kept telling him that we had to leave but he wouldn't listen to us. My companion didn't know what to do. While the guy was talking to my companion I pulled out our phone and put an alarm for the next two minutes and so when it started going off I was like, ``Hey sorry but the lesson we have right now is calling us and we have to go!`` He barely let us leave and we were late to our appointment.
This Sunday we had a lot of success with getting our investigators to the church! We had 9 investigators show up! 5 of the 9 were there for the first time and they really liked it. We are hoping that more than half of them will be able to get baptized in the upcoming month! Hope everyone else had a great week!
