This weekend was also the 4th of July so what I was able to do for it was...nothing!! Haha what a surprise. It's obviously not celebrated down here so essentially nothing was different for me here. It really just reminded me how blessed we are to be living in such a great country and how much I miss the life and culture there. I really just wanted to have a big BBQ and grill burgers and light fireworks haha.
We were able to set baptismal dates for a whole family of three! This family was definitely prepared for the missionaries to come back and visit them again because they had already been talking about fasting and going to church on Sunday. The husband Julio lost his job last week so they wanted to have a special fast and we were right there to teach them how to do it! haha. They even went to church for the first time on Sunday and the only thing holding them back is that they need to get married but they even told us they were willing to do that before the baptismal date. So as of right now we have four people with baptismal dates scheduled! This area definitely has a lot more work than the last, so it's been nice. The only thing that's been sucky lately has been the weather. SOOOO freaking hot. We came home one day just drenched as can be from the sweat, I felt like I had just jumped into a jacuzzi and then went and sat in a sauna for hours. My shirt and pants were suuuper wet, it was nasty haha!
Well that about sums up the week I had. Enjoy yours :) Love you guys
