Semana 63

Hi everyone! I hope you´re all doing good. We´re doing great here in Asistencia Social! Today I complete 16 month in the mission. The time has passed by super fast.

The Family C asisted church yesterday and the mom was able to have an interview with the bishop and she´s doing a lot better and happy to come back to church. Her nephew M came also and he has a fecha for the 15 of Novembre. He´s really excited to be baptized and will also be participating in the primary program next week. 

After a long time of working with him, we had a less active finally come to church yesterday named R. He´s the only member in his family which makes it hard for him to do what´s right, especially to asist church. But yeterday he came and I was really happy. It´s always special seeing less actives come back to church and renewing their covenants. We are all special children of our Heavenly Father, and He wants all of us to return to His presence. I testify that God lives and Jesus Christ lives and came to this world to die for us that we may all return to live with God.

We found a large family this week named the Family C. There´s probably more than 20 in this family. So far, we´ve only taught 10 of them. They´re all really good and a few of them asisted church a long time ago. The mom felt really frustrated because she couldn´t find a church that has profets and 12 apostles like in the Bible. Then we came and she was super excited! They all have sincere desires to know if this is true. They want to asist church next week with us. They didn´t come yesterday because of Day of the Dead and almost everyone went on vacations or visit the cementaries. 

This weekend was Day of the Dead and today the streets have been dead. We went to the offices, about a 45 minute bus ride only to find it closed because of the holidays. A lot of people went on vacations for the weekend. Here the tradition for Day of the Dead is serve the colada morada which is a special drink with berries and fruits and herbs with bread called guaguas de pan which is bread shaped as babies filled with jam. It´s really good. They only serve it at this time of year. 

Well that´s all for this week. Hope you all have a great week and stay safe! Can´t wait to hear from you all next week!  Chao!!
