Phew, this week was full of plenty of hard work. We went visiting almost every single person in our area book and even had a young man from the ward who got his mission call a couple weeks ago go tracting with us twice for the whole day. Not much was that different though as far as work-wise, but we have a baptism this Saturday for an investigator of ours (Julio Jr., 11yo) and I am super excited for him. He had a really hard time learning all of the lessons but we were really persistent and now he's even studying and praying on his own! I've never seen any kid have so strong of a desire to get baptized and do what it is right, I'm so proud of him and can't wait for this weekend! Both of his parents are listening to us and going to church as well, it's just that they aren't married or otherwise they'd be hopping in the font as well haha.
I had the opportunity to go to the temple AGAIN this week for a sealing session of some members that my comp used to teach in one of his old areas and it was great! I had never been to a sealing session and to be honest I loved it. It helped remind me that that (getting sealed) is the ultimate goal I have for each of my investigators here in the mission and for me as well haha when I get home and find that special someone ;)
Well to be honest not much else really happened for the two of us out here. My feet are all blistered up from all the walking we've been doing but I guess that's just part of the work haha. I got to meet everyone in my district on Tuesday, they're all really chill and I like them a lot. Hermana Castro (from Peru), Hermana Barton (from California, she just got here from the MTC so her Spanish is really bad but I talk to her in English to give her a break haha), and the zone leaders Elder Bernhisel (from Wyoming), and Elder Pérez (from Puebla, Mexico). I'm hoping we can have a lot of success together here during our time in Hermosillo.
Well, have a great week you guys! Les amo mucho, cuídense!
Con amor, Elder Thayne
