We have a God of miracles. A miraculous God!

Hola hola hola! Cómo les fue esta semana?!? Espero que todo esté bien! :)
[Hello Hello hello! How it fares this week? ! ? Hope all is well! :)]

This week was great!!! Ok, I´ll start with the biggest news first. Yesterday, Romina, her husband Alejandro, and their daughter Francina were baptized!!!!!!!!! It was beautiful and miraculous!!!

At the beginning of the week, we weren´t sure if Alejandro and Francina were going to be baptized. We hadn´t had much time to teach them everything and we were rather nervous. But, this isn´t the first time that I´ve had rushed baptisms so I know that they can happen. So, we left the decision up to them. Son Wednesday, we got a call from Romina and she told us that she wanted to meet with us to talk about the baptism. When we got there, she told us that Alejandro was going to wait to be baptized. We were sad, but we understood. It´s their choice. 
On Saturday, we went with the elders to do the interview of Romina (again. Just in case). She passed no problem. While we were talking for a bit, Romina´s mom came and a short while after her grandmother. We set a baptismal date with the grandmother and almost the mom, but she left. Then Alejandro came and Elder Muñoz (district leader) interviewed him. When they came out, they told us that Alejandro had decided to be baptized the next day as well. He was so happy, he couldn´t stop smiling. Then Francina came and Elder Muñoz interviewed her. After the interview, they told us that she too had decided and was prepared to be baptized. 
So yesterday, the family San Martín was baptized and confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!!! It was a beautiful baptism!! There are no words to describe how one feels seeing the people that you have taught, that you have grown to love so much, enter the waters of baptism. It is an indescribable joy!

Wow, ok, now for the rest of the week. :)
On Tuesday, we had the Sister Training Leaders with us. It was fun to get to know them a little more and to learn from them!
Sister Training Leaders--Hna Ascuña and Hna Woolley

Micaela and Hermana Ascuña

Micaela and Hermana Woolley didn't know their picture would be taken.
Juan. I don´t know what to do with Juan. He´s not coming to church. I don´t know if he´s really praying or listening to the Book of Mormon (he doesn't´t know how to read). I really think that we are going to drop him for good this week. He´s not progressing and we have done everything that we can to help him. It´s really hard and sad to have to drop investigators. 

Elva. She´s also not going to church. She´s still waiting for her answer. I would say that she´s waiting for a sign. We´re going to have a frank conversasion with her this week and decide whether or not we have to drop her as well. 

Guadalupe. Same old same old. But we are not giving up on her. If she had it her way, she would have been baptized before I even got here. We need to talk to her dad. It´s just really hard to find him.

WE NEED TO FIND MORE INVESTIGATORS!!!!!!!!! But don´t worry, we´ll do it. After all, we have God on our side. :)

Anyway, it was a great week!!!! I love it when we have baptisms! What joy!!!!!!!!!!

I hope that you all are doing well and that you have had a good week. Make it an amazing week this week!!!! Go on an adventure. Laugh. Smile. Share with a friend. Live and love God. For He is and always will be the center of everything.

Love from,
Hermana Micaela Wilson
