Semana 14!!!

Wow what a week! (haha) We had a baptism! Nicole got baptized this Saturday, and it was awesome! Her mom, Olga, came, and Giovanni was able to come as well! It was really amazing, and we´re seeing a lot of progress with Olga too! She didn't come to church this week because she was sick but we finally got her to pray with us this week, and she's reading in the Book of Mormon which is awesome! The only thing she needs to do before her baptism is get married... Honestly, we need a miracle. I don´t think her spouse wants to get married and we never get the chance to talk with him, but we are working on it and we still have some time! (haha) And, one thing I've learned, is that anything's possible when you rely on the Lord! I truly do believe Olga will be baptized before the end of this month!  

If there's one thing I've learned these past few months it's that the Lord has a plan! This week, we passed by the Familia Flor and taught a lesson with their son Luis (one of the two that isn't a member). He had an interesting experience this week, and had to go to the police station because he stole his friends motorbike. (haha) It was a little stressful for Hermano y Hermana Flor, but it kind of woke Luis up a little I think! We talked about baptism and repentance and he accepted a baptismal date! The problem with him is he has to stop drinking, he's 18 and likes to drink with his friends Saturday nights. But he told us he wants to stop and we are working with him a little bit! We´re planning to help him make some new friends in the church so that he can quit drinking and be baptized. Anyways, we passed by to bring him to church on Sunday and he was asleep and didn´t want to come which was really sad! (haha) But the family has a cousin named Carolina that told us she wanted to come! She came with us and I was talking to her and she told me she wants to get baptized! (haha) And then she said, "I have to come to church one more time, right? And then I can get baptized?" I was shocked and was like, "YEAH claro que si! (clearly!) We'll teach you the lessons, and you can get baptized the 13th of December!" It was so SICK! Anyways, moral of the story is, I was sad that Luis didn't come to church, but Carolina did and she wants to be baptized so we're gonna baptize her! Heavenly Father always has a plan! We're still working with Luis but we're not sure if he really has the desires or just feels pressure from his family. Pray for him PLEASE!!!!!  

The rest of the Flor family is awesome! They come to church every week and are reading in the Book of Mormon as a family! We only have to baptize the two older brothers to complete the family!!!!!! Anyways, that was this week! It was a good one... I love you all, have an awesome week!  

Love, Hermana Austin
