Life in the Field: A New Mission President

Baptism of Ana & Evlyn on August 2, 2015
It was another wonderful & busy week for Dallin! He was able to have two of his investigators be baptized and have a meeting with the new Mission President. Dallin really seems to like him and his new ideas to help the missionaries! Please, don't forget to send out letters! The information you will need is below, or on the side bar! Please, do not hesitate to ask me, Becca, via the comment section of this blog, with any questions you may have as well. 

Well, this week was swell. We had two baptisms and it was great!

On Thursday, we went to the church to get things ready for Saturday, and my convert, Apolinar, was giving a class about Carpintera (carpentry) which was cool. He showed us how to make picture frames! Apolinar is a boss! Super cool guy. He still works outside everyday on houses and makes things for fun. 

On Friday, we had our zone meeting which was great. We dropped a ton of rules which was amazing! Now whatever the white handbook says, is the rule! Life is better now. Plus, mission president told us to use our own common sense and be adults. This new president is my hero! I love this guy.

 Anyways, we have a new way of teaching too! Now we basically use the booklets that we have that talk about the Plan of Salvation and the Restoration to teach. Its super simple, but really effective. We give more of an intro, and explain the important things, and after when we leave, the investigator can read the booklet for more info. It's super simple, but we only teach whats really necessary for them to know. I really like it.

The zone leaders came to our area on Friday to do the interviews, so that night we stayed up late eating hamburgers and messing around. Elder Dance and I talked a ton and talked about everything legit. Elder Dance is the man! We call him Elder Guapo because he is a handsome man and he thinks it's pretty funny.

We had our baptism which was sweet. I baptized Evelyn who is almost 17 and my comp her mom Ana. It went really well and overall, super successful! The sister missionaries sang with us a hymn for the baptism. It went super well! Super strong and powerful.

Yesterday, we ate tamales which were super yummy. They were Northern styled so they were super spicy which was amazing! 

I got a bunch of letters Friday, which was amazing! I love them!
