this week has been great!!!! first, we have a date set to baptize hermano stewart on january 25th. secondly, we had a sister reunion last week. it was awesome, and we learned a lot. i got to see my daughter, and I just about cried, I was just so happy to see her. Third, we have an awesome volcano erupting here in El Salvador right now...but thank goodness it is many miles away from me and my area. But please pray for the missionaries and people there....things are not going to well in that area right now. Fourth...later this month all three missions in el salvador are getting together to listen to Elder Cook....and apostle from the quorom of the 12 apostles. WHOOOOO!!!! and another thing.....I will complete half of my mission on the 17th og january. Almost like my birthday haha except for I am way sad that half of it is over. :( That is what is up this week.
This week has been good. We are working harder as a companionship, and are working hard to set up dates for baptism for the next two months. The members are a little cold here..but we are working on building frienships with them. little by little....yes we have the faith things will continue to improve. We are happy and healthy and so pumped to work in the work of the Lord. I am trying to keep up with the weekly letters for you guys. Sorry if i cant get one out to you every week...but it is the effort that counts.
We also have changes in february...after a change of 8 weeks...we will see what will happen. I will let you know!!!!!!! hmmm what else??? oh yah!!!! so hermano carmelo, the man we just baptized not too long ago....he hasnt showed up to church to be confirmed. He has 2 more weeks to show up. and if he doesnt show up, we will have to have him be baptized again! CRAZY!!!!! ahhhhh!!!!!!!! haha
But we have about 3 postive families that we are teaching right noe. They are young families, and have a desire to change. I am amazed how the Lord puts people in your path that are ready to change and learn. I just witness miracles every day. So much that I cannot tell every single one of them. There is a saying that we have n the mission. Obedience brings you blessings. Exact obedience brings you miracles. :) I am going to work on being more obedient. Help me out, and encourage me. Be odedient at home as well. Attend church, rea your book of mormon daily and with your family. serve and love others...and you will recieve blessing like you have never seen before!!! that is my mesage for this week. short and simple. but i love ya guys!!!! have a great week!!! i willl write more next week!!
love hermana thomas
