June 6th, 2 Marriages

So this week was really good for us. More than anything there was three big things that happened with our investigators this week.

First, Luis and Lizet are still really excited about their marriage and their baptism. They are going to be married on the June 17th and baptized June 18th. It was supposed to be this week be they didn't get money that they were waiting for so they had to do it for that date. But Lizet was so worried about it that she decided to fast so that everything would be alright. They are going to do it no matter what.

Second, is with the Almeida family. They are also trying to get married for June 18th and baptized the same day. But they don't really have the money to pay for it. They had a baby that was born a few weeks ago and have had to pay a lot for that. So they talked about it in ward council and the ward decided that we are going to do a service for them to get the money. We are going to make something that's called cuñape and sell them and all the money that we get is going to be for the marriage. So hopefully this Saturday we will have all the money we need and they will be able to get married next week and baptized.

Third, we found an investigator a few weeks ago that we have been teaching a bit and he has been reading a lot of the Book of Mormon. He read in 1 Nephi 14 about that there are only 2 churches. The church of Christ and the church of the devil. He said that he went to the catholic church because one of his family members died and he said he felt really weird and did not like being there at all. He couldn't go to church yesterday but he said that he is going to go to church next week no matter what to see how he feels there.

There's a lot of good stuff going on in our area. We have a lot of work to do.

We've been also finding a lot of nice parrots in our area. It was biting my button on my shirt and felt really weird.

Also we found a cool souvenir in Trinidad.
