This week has been a great week! I don't even know where to start. First of all, they split our zone into 2 zones, and so now we have new zone leaders. They are awesome! I also got called to be a district leader. Because the zones are so small, I'm over 2 other companionships, but wow, my district is the best! I love serving and being positive with them. The only bad part is having to stay up so late talking with the zone leaders every night, but oh well!!
We had an amazing week in the work! After many hard weeks of searching for God's childeren who have been prepared by Him, I think we finally found some. We ended up bringing 5 investigators to church, which I have never done before. And with the positive experience that they had, I wouldn't be surprised if it doubled the next week!
This is how we did it. We got our ward mission leader, to take his truck up the mountain and we just piled everyone in. We even brought like 10 inactive members in this big pile of people in the back of the truck!
Then after church, as we were waiting for our ward mission leader to take them all back, 2 of the investigators, Roni age 13, and Walter, his brother, age 11 asked the best question I've ever heard in the mission......So Elder Corbett, when can we be baptized?!?! It was the coolest thing! I pulled out my phone and checked the calender and I was like well, you have to go to church 2 more times, so let's plan it on the 1st of March! haha! These 2 boys will really help the ward. One problem that this ward has, is that there is no one with the priesthood, not even to pass the sacrament. These 2 boys will be able to pass the sacrament!!!
One thing that i have learned in the mission, is that there are going to be good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks, even months. But if we are patient with the Lord, and if we are humble before Him, He will comfort us during these bad times, and bless us with great times and experiences on our missions. I am so greatful for the joy and knowledge I have gained about the Savior's love that He has for me and His children here in Guatemala. There's no where I could be, that is better for me, than right here serving the Lord.
I hope that everyone had a great week this week, and that you guys have a great next week! I can't believe that today is my 7 months, wow the time flies! les amo mucho!
