Heyoo! (From 9/28/2015)

Hey family and friends!  Some stories and miracles for you guys this week:)  IT HAS BEEN A TIRING WEEK.  Holy cow we were trying so hard to prepare Catia for batptism as well as care for other necessities of our zone.  On Thursday night we had to go to Carregado (an area in our zone) to do a few baptismal interviews for this really cool family but the Dad didn't get home from work until like 9:10  so we were there quite a long time and by the time the interviews were over we didn't have a lot of options as far as trains and buses and transportation go.  And we don't have a car at our disposal so we had to wait until 11:10ish for a train and didn't get back until 12:30 and finally we got to bed around 1:00 That may not sound bad too you all but I will tell you if you miss a few hours of sleep as a missionary it takes quite the toll.  I was just exausted the rest of the weeked with all the rest of our tasks and duties.  So that wasThursday.  Friday we planned out a fun bold thing to do in the morning and then in the afternoon we had Catia's baptismal interview.  So after that all happened and passed we decided to exeecute our plans to do something bold like the missionaries of old.  We went to the bus station at the busiest waiting time (like 6:00 for everyone going home from work/school) We stood in front of everyone and began to sing Praise to the Man, me and Elder McColley.  Then after the hymn Elder McColley quoted with the voice of a trumpet 3 Nephi 5:13 adapting some of the words to apply to us and after that I came in shouting at the top of my lungs and holding up a picture of the first vision testifying of the truthfulness of that divine vision and inviting all to hear what we had to say.  Then us and the Sisters passed out about 100 or so cards to everyon that had heard.  No one accepted to hear our message at that time but I hope that we made an impression and planted a few seeds.  If nothing it strengthened my faith and courage.  My mouth was trully filled and I felt the hand of the Lord.  It made me think that that is how Ammon and Aaron and Alma and all them must have preached!  So it was pretty great experience.  We have a video of it so when I get home I can show it to all of you guys:)

Also Catia was baptized this last Saturday and confirmed on Sunday.  She really has a good desire to change her life and she is actually the one that started coming to church on her own.  She has a lot of difficulties but I know that she took a step of faith in the right direction for sure.  Truly another miracle before our eyes.  

Thank you for everything I love you allll!:)  Sorry got to go!
