Week 81 Letter


Monday, September 10, 2012
Hello family!!!
Sorry that I am writing this letter a little later today, I had to get a haircut and we ended up teaching the barber how to play a card game afterwards and teaching him about the gospel.  He seems like a really nice down to earth guy and the haircut was only 8 bucks which is cheaper than a lot of other places here.  So, to tell you the news of the week, we had 2 baptisms on Saturday, Clara, a little 9 yr old girl whose dad we reactivated and whose mom wants to get baptized but still needs to get married legally, 


and Jhyeci, who is 17 and a great young girl who is excited to have found the truth.  She will be a strength in the young women’s program here.  It was awesome.  


Also, Fernando came to church, a single man who is in his 40s and he is excited to be baptized this next Saturday.  He has been to church a lot of times in the past but he was addicted to drinking and smoking but he has seen a miracle in his life since we found him.  He has a week without smoking, beer, or coffee.  He is amazed because he has tried to stop many times before but never could.  We will continue to teach and help him a lot this week.  He is a great guy.  Sadly, Raimundo, the dad of Isis, the 15 yr old girl that I baptized, is having to travel a lot for work now so he is going to leave this week and will not be back for another 40-45 days.  I will really miss him, but he has been thinking a lot about the church and he even said that he will think a lot about baptism while he is gone so that he can feel more ready on the return to be baptized and continue firm in the faith.  On the other hand, two of his cousins, in their 20s came to live with Isis at home here, and so we will teach them.  One is single and the other is married (but not legally dang it).  Raimundo already talked to them about the church and talked really well of it.  He said that it would be the only church worth baptizing in because of the way that you feel when you are there.  He said it is the only church that is true to itself and its teachings.  I think that he believes that it is true, because he tells that to us, but he did not really tell his cousins like that but it was awesome to see him doing missionary work.  I love doing missionary work with investigators and recent converts.  So, that is about my week.  I am doing well, I am happy, and I have excited to work this week.  It will be fun.  I love all of you and I am so proud of each of you.  Also, I am going to go and play some soccer today so that I can play with Danny when I get home.  Good work Danny!!!!  Score a goal for big brother Shane!!!  Love you all and have a great week!!!!
Love, Elder Lee
