I'd Love to Stay and Chat, But I Moustache

Alright, suckas, this is serious business. Like all but 5 computers in the library are broken down right now for some dumb reason. That's like 15 broken computers, how does that even happen? But either way, we're being rationed a measly 30 minutes to do our emailing, so if I don't have any time to send personal ones to anyone, I am eternally sorry!

This week has been super duper good. We didn't have tons of success in terms of open doors and whatnot, but Elder Josephson and I are just working hard and prepping the way for good things to happen. We've been making tons of contact with the stake leaders in the area, and doing our best to utilize 'em. Going on lots of visits with members here to help us out, and it's been a huge blessing to see the progress that's made when they add their two cents to ours. Funny thing is, pretty much every single time we knocked on a door without a member to back us up, the appointment ended up falling through, or the investigator would just hide. So we didn't see much success there. But all is well, because...

We have the huge blessing of seeing Anamaria Jimenez get baptized this Saturday! This is a woman who's been investigating the church for about a year and a half. She had a very tough struggle with the Word of Wisdom, specifically the smoking portion, but we have been hugely blessed to be a very small part of this woman's conversion. Getting to know her and her son, Kino, has been a big pleasure, and I'm stoked to see her make this step! Kino is a little hesitant to take the step because he's not too sure he's felt the spirit very much by this point, but I know it'll happen soon!

Anyway, I gotta run already! Short short short! Hopefully the computers are all debugged or whatever next week. Then with some luck I'll be able to respond to all you peeps' emails. Love you all! Muah!
