This week was good. We had an awesome Group Night in the house of a member. The whole group night thing we started about 3 weeks ago. The 1st time, 11 people showed up and 1 investigator. The 2nd time, 14 people showed up and 3 investigators. Last Friday 19 people came with 6 investigators.
In the Group Night it was great because the investigators went and we shared the message. We talked of testimony and we shared the scripture Matthew 7 with the man who built his house upon the rock. We then used the game Jenga, and each one would walk up and say a sin or something that they could take away from our testimony and then take they would a piece out of the game. We did that until it fell and we asked why did it fall and explained how it relates to our testimonies and the importance of attending church and other things. We finished by having Alonso, our investigator read Helaman 5:12 out loud and then we listened to a testimony from Jairo, He is the recent convert that was baptized in April and we also heard from Sister Blanca, our cook, Felix, another investigator also shared his testimony of how he has felted since he started receiving the gospel. It was a real great experience! :o)
Some of our recent investigators:
Alonso is a body guard. He is the cool guy that will be baptized on the 4th of June. Felix and Gabriela are an awesome couple that we found my first week in Guapiles in April and took a while to start progressing but, have really felt the spirit and are really starting to change. After the marriage, they are set for baptism in June as well. Octavio is a nice guy from the Dominican Republic that is about 61yrs old. He was living in Guana Caste but just moved here. Real nice guy and interested in the gospel and likes church. Patricia is a cool investigator with a great testimony. We had a powerful lesson yesterday with them. We are just waiting on the marriage and then the baptism in July. We have some others that are coming to church but are on the slower side of progressing but also awesome people.
We went to the Guatemala embassy last week for stuff with my companion. Things are good here. We heard there are some changes to some rules now in the dress and groom section on LDS.org for missionaries. It affects the sisters and those serving in mosquito infested areas during the rainy season. It also shows examples of sunglasses we can use----who knows? Anyways have a great week!
