In case you happen to not speak Spanish, I said that we were able to meet a young man named Jesus this week in which we were able to put a baptismal date for the 21st of February. He's super friendly and just an overall great person, and he and his family live in some of the most humble of circumstances. He's been to the chapel four times already, and his family has been listening to us and I think they're going to progress and start going to church next week as well. However, I'm most likely getting transferred on the 15th so I probably won't be there for his baptism, but to be honest that doesn't really matter to me. I'm super happy for him and his family and I hope they all progress and eventually enter the waters of baptism like what we already have planned for him.
That being said, we worked pretty hard but at the same time I tried to make the best of my time remaining by meeting with more of the members and eating quite a bit haha. We didn't have any baptisms on Saturday because the prepared investigator we're teaching right now had to work that day. This weekend is stake/district conference and there's a mission rule that we can't baptize those days so unfortunately we're not going to have the opportunity to baptize anyone else the remainder of our time together in Nogales. But to me I really don't care how many people I'm able to baptize, as long as I'm doing my part to help the investigators progress as much as possible so that maybe one day they'll be able to make this decision for themselves I'll be happy.
I've been feeling really good lately, it's starting to warm up again and even one of the members here told us that one of the days this week is going to be 90 degrees! For some reason though, the people here insist on wearing jeans and thick sweaters throughout the entire day while the sun is beating on them, it's ridiculous. I guess there's just some stuff I'll never understand about the people and culture here haha.
Anyways, I hope you guys had a great week! I love you guys, stay strong and don't forget to pray daily :)
