This past week went really well for us. Our investigator Alfonso is still struggling with the Word of Wisdom and other small things and so he couldn't be baptized but we will keep working with him. The other Elders, Elder Hanna and Elder Reyes, had a baptism. Her name is Sulaika and she is so cool. President Boucher came to the baptism so it was cool to see him. He came up to me and said he was very impressed with how hard we are working so that was pretty sick to hear from him.
Last night we were teaching a family we had just recently met and they accepted baptism when they are prepared - so that's cool. After that we got a call from a guy who is Jehovahs Witness named Julio that wanted to know more about the Mormon Church. We met up with him in the Church and he is a really cool guy. He is in college right now but I can't remember what he is studying. He was telling us he has been pretty much jumping around religions his whole life trying to find the one that he feels really confident about. He told us he never had the chance to "try the Mormon church out". I loved that because if he has been in all of these other churches, as he learns about the restored Gospel it will make so much sense and he will feel the difference when he attends church.
Here in Puerto Rico they have what is called Semana Santa. A holy week before Easter. It pretty much was tons of people using their 1 time a year Church assistance just because its holy week. When I hear other churches going off preaching it just builds my testimony stronger and its so nice to know that the whole truth has been restored and there is no confusion. If only that can get into the heads of the people here...but eventually we will find the Golden Contact.
I have got to go but I LOVE YOU ALL!! Have a good Conference Weekend! We all have the opportunity to hear from Prophets and Apostles. Prophets in our day just like Moses or Abraham. They receive revelation from God for all of us.
