Turning Point

Well hello there everybody, how art thou fairing this fine morn? Everything is just fantastic here in the wonderful mountains of San Martín.

This week was really great, we had a lot of the success we've been looking for, and just overall we felt really good. The first thing is we had another great lesson with our investigator Keila! We taught almost all of the commandments, and she accepted all of them! Although she did say she likes drinking coffee and tea, it isn't really an addiction, so that's good. Everything was perfect and so we invited her to be baptized on the 5th of March, and she said, "I think that's a little too quick." Something you never want to hear an investigator say hahaha. And so we asked her when she thought a good time would be, and she said in July! Sooooooooooooooooo yeah we'll be working on that with her, because she's already super ready and willing. But for now, her baptismal date is for the 1st of June (at least we convinced her to drop a month).

Just before that, we went and clapped on a random house based on... I don't know what (Spirit) and met this guy named Tomás. He was super awesome, and accepted everything including a baptismal date for the 12th in a matter of 15 minutes of meeting him, it was awesome! So we're gonna be working with him and his family a lot.

On Friday, President and his wife and the assistants came up to San Martín for interviews, and it was great. I had about a 4-minute interview, which I guess is a good thing because it means everything's fine. But President's great, and that night the assistants stayed in my pensh, and so we had a fun little time with them as well.

We also finally a found menos activa recién conversa that we've been looking for since we got here, and were able to go see her and visit a little with her and her daughter that's not a member and was listening to the missionaries before we got here, and so that is also very exciting!

Overall, everything is just great. This week has finally kind of like the turning point, everything's finally starting to work our way here, and it's awesome. I love you all and hope you're doing great!!!
