Rain Rain Rain

Fam and Friends,

Well fellas its been quite the week here in villa fuegooooo. its been raining like crazy here. raining season has hit nicaragua. floods are ridiculous here hahaha the streets are literally turned into rivers and you see just about everything running down the streets haha. 

This week has been rough and really good haha. start off with the rough part. First of all want to thank you all for your prayers. Omar and Perla who were supposed to get married will not be getting baptized or married): we heard some sad news that Omar did not get a divorce and as a result turned into some problems. Perla told us that they will be getting seperated. When we heard this obviously we were devestated because it is never our intent to seperate families, but she told us that she has received an answer to her prayers and becoming a member of the true church is what she needs in her life right now. She will be getting baptized in June if everything works out. she came to church and payed her tithing (: she is quite the person. she is so dedicated and has truly been converted. so amazing to see the gospel change peoples lives.

Also we had some pretty amazing lessons with 3 of the other investigators that were planning on getting baptized on saturday. They all had pretty amazing experiences with prayer where they received answers to their prayers. I know that god answer prayers and it was so special to listen to these three people really come to know that this is the true church and that they needed to receive a baptism. Sad news is that their parents changed their minds and no longer want them to get baptized for another month or so. 

I know that these trials that have been put in our path are to help us learn and grow. I remember beeing so happy that everything would work out just as planned but this has been such a humbling experience for me. The lord has something else planned for them and I know that the Lord will help us to find those people who are ready. 

We encountered a family this week thanks to the stake president and his wife. We had one lesson with Carlos and explained the importance of families and baptism. I have never seen someone more prepared than Carlos. He has been catholic all his life and we began to talk about baptism. This man understood and explained to us that he wanted to get batpized in the true church and he knew right then and there that the church that we represent is the true church. His wife doesnt want to get married but we have a noche de hogar tonight with them and the stake president and his wife! already beginning to see miracles. The Lord prepares his children. Have seen a ton of miracles. 

ALSO CHANGES ARE COMING UP THIS NEXT WEEK.  we will see if i will go a whole year in the same zone this saturday haha. LOVE YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT
