Semana Santa

Hola Familia!

All I have to say, is that this week Semana Santa (holy week) was sooooo strange! Instead of just celebrating Easter morning, and everyone going to church, the people had a week long celebration. They carried people tied to crosses and for some reason, they went around to people's houses asking for bread. Oh well, it was a good excuse for us to invite people to come to church!

This week we have been working hard with this really humble family. They are from a village way up in the mountains so it's hard to teach them! We found out that the best way to work with them, was to serve them. We did a lot of things for them, one including Elder Darrow getting down on his hands and knees and me standing on top of him to change a light bulb! We found out that by doing this, that we gained their confidence and showed them how much we love them.

This Sunday, the mom of the family and her oldest daughter came to church for their third time, which in our mission is a requirement to be baptized! So this Saturday they will be baptized! And we have a baptismal date with one of her sons in 2 weeks! Also, on Sunday after visiting them, we saw 4 of her other children looking at the church, so hopefully that means that they will want to come to church this next Sunday!!

Other than that, we haven't done too much. We just keep working on helping this family. Also, I am not sure when p day is next week, because on Monday Elder Clark, a seventy, will be coming to a multi-zone conference! And, If I stay in this same area for another change, I will have the opportunity to see Elder Packer come and divide the stake! So there are some cool things happening here in Guatemala! I hope you have a great week! Les Queiro y Les amo!
