Starting off the new year with some tamales, fireworks and a baptism date

Hola Familia!

This year has been a good year so far! My companion and I started off the new year by eating some more tamales, watching fireworks and by setting a baptism date with Hermano Hector for the 17th!

We have seen a great change in Hector since the first time we met him. He told us that he feels that something is missing in his life. He said that he had a dream where his house was really dirty, so he tried cleaning it with soap and it didn't clean it, then he tried with sandpaper and it wouldn't come off. He even tried with acid and he couldn't clean his house. Then he used some sort of water and the water cleaned his house! Wow, we thought that was awesome! We then testified to him and told him that his dream was an answer from God. That our bodies are temples and the only way that we can be cleansed from sin is through baptism. He then agreed that he received an answer from God and told us that he wants to be baptized!

I was a little sad thinking that I was going to have changes and that I wouldn't be able to be at the baptism. But I think the Lord might have heard me as the assistants told me that I won't be having changes! This means that I will be here one more change with my companion who will go home in February, and then another change to show my new companion the area! So that means 3 more months In San Juan Ostuncalco. Also President Smith called me yesterday and told me that he was going to put us in a trio for a couple of weeks so that we could help a missionary focus on the mission. Right now they just called and said that they are on their way to drop him off, so we have to go a little early! Love you guys!
