The Call

OHHHHHH MY!!!! HOW EXCITING FOR SAMMY BOY!!! Tampico like the nasty drink in elementary school.. hahaha. I’m so excited for you to speak ESPAÑOL!!!!!
(Sammuel is going to Tampico, Mexico and leaves June 30th, he received his call on Wed 17th)

What an awesome week we´ve started off with! Tons of new investigators and finding people left and right! Hermana Lopez truly knows what she is doing and when we make goals we get’er done! It has been amazing and I’m looking totally forward to this whole transfer! We´ve already had some fun times in the rain, in the streets and everywhere we are! We have three baptisms that are coming up on the 7 of March, close to your birthday Sammy boy! They are the Rodriguez familia, a father, mother and two girls one who is 11 and one who is 3. The father is really quiet but you can tell he has so much love for his kids and the mom is so bubbly and loves to pray. At first we had their date for the 28th but the dad didn’t accept it that time and we didn’t know why cause he loved the one time they came to church and loved our lessons. They were telling us as well that they were going to be gone this weekend so they would be to church once more (and for investigators to be baptized they need to come to the church 3 Sundays) so we felt like we needed to talk to them about moving their date for the baptism and ask the father how we could help him. When we got to their house the mom told us they had been up all night talking about the date for the baptism and why the dad didn’t accept. He had felt like it was too fast and wanted to be more familiar with attending church and that it was not just some event but something he was taking very seriously. So the second time we talked about it with him he felt a lot better for the 7th of March. I could see him as a future bishop and her in the young womens. Their daughter is awesome as well, she´s home all day so reads the book of mormon and bakes cakes for us! Hermana Roy and I found them a couple weeks ago when we were walking by their house! Tonight we are going to have a FHE with them at the bishop’s house!

I love the work here and the people more and more each day! The language is coming along.... I’m so happy that Hermana Lopez knows the language so well since we both are so early on into the missioN! What was the president thinking!?! haha no it has been amazing this last week. We are at the top of our area right now! Our little old lady that was baptized on the 14th received the holy ghost yesterday in sacrament meeting! She has become the cute little new member everyone loves! We’ve found a couple more families this week that we are hoping to work with as well! Love you all!
