Hey everyone,

Another week in BV. This next week is the last week of this transfer. For all I know I could be out of here. I sure hope not though. We're having baptisms this Saturday. We currently have 4 people who have enough church attendance to be able to be baptized. We're gonna try to work hard with them so the can do it. We would have two more but, they're living together and not married. It blows because no one in this country is married and they all live together and no one can afford to get married. It's a pain sometimes.

Saw something funny the other day. Everyone here likes to have stuff in English. Whether it's on their clothes, their cars or whatever. One guy had the title of Tupac's "Only God Can Judge Me" on his windshield. It would have been a lot cooler if it hadn't been spelled "Only God Can Jodge Me" haha. Not like anyone heer would even notice or even know what it meant anyway.

One of the things we've learned is that there are a lot of people out there and a lot who are ready for the gospel. The hardest part of everything, I think, is deciding who to keep teaching and who to leave behind. It sounds terrible, but we have to leave behind the people who aren't progressing and aren't keeping their commitments because it's not fair to the people who are out there waiting and are ready. The two major commitments that help us figure out who to continue visiting and who to leave behind are if they come to church and if they accept a baptismal date. Obviously if they never accept a date, they aren't going be baptized and, in this mission, you have to come to church twice before you can be baptized. So if an investigators isn't coming to church, it's a better use of your time to move on to someone who is more serious about the gospel.

Entonces vamos bien aquì. Queremos terminar bien èste cambio y vamos a hacer todo lo posible para tener bautismos èste sabado. Que estèn bien.
