Cumpliendo La Semana Perfecta...

This week was La Semana Perfecta and it was awesome!! We worked our little tails off and had such a good time with it! Met a bunch of newbies and a couple people we're hoping to set baptismal dates with this week!
At the end of the week we needed a baptism. We were looking and looking and looking and we found one candidate, but weren't able to teach him the Word of Wisdom in time (10 days before baptism, at least). His mom told us he drank coffee and we were reeeeally bummed at that. We went back a few days later and taught the Word of Wisdom and he told us he had only had FAKE coffee for the past week and a half! Our jaws dropped through the floor! It was fantastic! We then started making plans to teach him a super long lesson of 2 or 3 hours of all the lessons so that he could be baptized 2 days later. He wasn't quite sure about that, but we KNEW he was ready. We knew it to our very cores! Well, we went back to teach him and he wasn't there. We stopped by about 4 times that day and never found him. The next day his mom said to drop by around 3. We went by around 2 and 4. Still didn't find him. So we gave up for that weekend. We didn't have a baptism, and that's okay, but we're going to have one this weekend for sure. His mom then told us later that he was waiting for us at 3, but he was only home for about 45 minutes! GAH. That just about killed me! But we're going to visit him today or tomorrow and prep him for this weekend!
We had interviews with the mission president today and those were fantastic! I swear, give it 15 years and that man will be an apostle. He is perfect. Okay, maybe not perfect, but he's pretty close. I got SO lucky in terms of the mission! The Guatemala City Central mission is obedient, diligent, hard working and hopeful! There are miracles happening right and left and we're going to see more and more, I'm sure of it!
One of the things President Brough said to me is that he's urging missionaries to pick a gift to give to Christ for Christmas. This could be an attribute you choose to develop, a sacrifice or something that requires effort on your part to change! Mine I chose would be charity, or Christlike love. It's something I've really wanted to develop, and now I have the perfect opportunity! I invite all of you to also pick something that you want to develop and dedicate that change to Christ. Set goals and try to achieve it by Christmas! It'll be a worthwhile project, I just know it :D
That's all I have to say for now! I know that the Lord loves us. I know we just have to try our best until we just can't give any more and then we'll have done our part, and He'll give us all He has in return. I'm so happy to serve a mission and to serve the people of Guatemala!
Love you all!
