WHOOHOO! I am so happy to be writing you and sharing a little of my mission experience. P-Day moved to Monday, I am sorry for any mix up or complications this may have caused. This last week was heavenly. Elder Bryan and I have been doing our best to do our best and we are really being blessed for it. The Lord has really touched the hearts of the members and investigators in this area. Last week I wrote about a family and a man who accepted to enter the waters of baptism. This week they decided to do it! Marcos is so special to me. He has such a sincere desire to follow the Lord and to do what is write. He said he doesn´t want to miss even one Sunday and already is gun-ho about paying tithing! His family also went to church this week and loved it as well as the baptismal service. At the end of it, the father came up to us and said, ´´We will start paying tithing and will all be in the church before you know it!´´ That is one of the best possible phrases to hear as a missionary. We stopped by their house later and marked them to be baptized in the upcoming weeks. The family that was baptized was really nervous, but excited. We had to work with them when they started hearing things bad about the church, but it all worked out. There is another teenager who lives in the same house who is really excited to learn more and will be baptized here in two weeks. Sunday was definitely one of the best days of my whole mission. Two of our investigators who attended the baptismal service and are marked to marry asked us very earnestly afterwards,´´When can we mark our baptisms?´´ We answered, ´´´Let´s go for the day after the marriage!´´ We ran into a member on the bus this week who used to live in our area and he gave the address of his uncle. We stopped by there and the family accepted baptism whole-heartedly. They were only unable to go to church this week because of a death in the family. We will teach the plan of salvation tonight to help them get through this difficult time. I have progressed leaps and bounds, but still have a long way to go. I have come to love the scriptures and how we can apply them to our lives. I know that the Book of Mormon, the Bible, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price are the word of God and teach us all the things we need to do to be saved at the last day. I love this church, this gospel, the Lord Jesus Christ, and everyone of you and wish you the best! Come on really, Elder Healy
