HOLA A TODOS!!
Well I know that it has been a while since i wrote! But it's just like the title says we have been running, running, running! Things have been going great here in good ole' Chalco ;) we have been super busy at work! I kind of forgot how hard it is to open up an area but its been so much fun! Things are going great with my companion. We also have a possible baptism! Then a few weeks ago I got the chance to go to Polanco, the nicest part of the city, to resign my visa for the last time! It was a lot of fun and other than that things are just busy, busy, busy!!
So with the running, running, running. This last week we decided that we have not been finding a ton of new people so we looked at the list of people that we have contacted in the street the last few weeks and we realized that we had a list of about 30 different people. We decided we needed to look for these people to see if they really wanted anything. It was kind of sad because we walked all day for two days and whittled the list down from 30 possible investigators to only about five that accepted to really listen. It was kind of sad but now we know where the possibilities are at and we know who to work with! So we are ready to hit the ground running and that will be exciting!
We possibly have a baptism this week! The guy had an accident a few weeks ago and shared his experience like this: He works making big ice blocks and a machine fell and crushed his foot! he told us where the machine was he should have been completely crushed but he wasn't! He said that a warm smooth feeling took hold of him and moved him out of the way and so the machine only crushed his foot, which is still bad.... but then he told us that his foot was completely under the machine and that same feeling came back and took his foot out! We were like wow that's crazy! He is convinced it was our Father in Heaven (which it was) and he is ready to put a bag over his foot and jump in the font! So we will be baptizing him with the bag over his foot this week probably! it was so cool to hear his experience and he is super ready! His wife and kids are members he is the only one that is not a member and now is ready to jump in the font!!
Polanco was cool! we got to go to a store that sells complete american food! iI was so cool! I got some Twizzlers and Gierideli chocolate! it was so much fun!
I do have to say that its crazy how we get caught up in our many activities each week and each day! This last week my companion and I were talking and we were like wow where is the time! October literally is almost gone! this is the last week of October and then we are in November again, and before we know it, it will be Christmas again! And then the new year! Something that i have learned out here is to enjoy the time because when we hit the real world again it will be a dumbed down version of the mission! We will be always be running, running, running. That is why it is super important to remember the savior in our lives! When we do the small things like daily prayer, scripture study, and weekly family home evening to the bigger stuff like weekly church attendance and monthly temple visits we will be richly blessed!
The Lord himself promised I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise. D&C 82:10 As we do what he says he will help us i can testify to that because like he said "i am bound"
I love you all and hope that you all have a good week this next week! Untill next week with all of the excitement may God bless each and every one of you!
