Do or Die Week

This week was pretty OK. We started off really strong, going into Wednesday we had 4 people with baptism dates. But by the time we hit Friday nobody wanted to listen anymore. We haven't had the chance to go back with that family, they kept putting off the appointment. So I don't really think they want to listen to us anymore. But I don't know. I'm trying really hard to keep up my faith in these people we have.  This week is do or die for us to. If we don't find people who can come to church for the next three weeks we aren't going to have any baptisms this cambiar  (I asked Mason what cambiar means this was his reply: cambiar is to change. but a cambio in the mission is a transfer. Transfers happen every six weeks so we only have three Sunday's for this transfer so if we don't find people who can come for the next three weeks we won't be able to baptize them.) And I finish my training in three weeks too! So there is a chance I can get moved to a different area or switch companion's, Which is tough but we can find someone. We did find the best person I have ever taught this last week. We actually met him like a month and a half ago. We seriously have been going back to his house a few times a week for the last month and he was never home. But we ran into him on the street. His name is Dario. He's pretty sweet. The reason why he was never home is because he goes to School in Bogota. He's only 21 and he's already graduating college. So he's really smart. It's been really fun to teach him, he understands everything. He said he already thinks what we are teaching is true. But he still needs to read the Book of Mormon and come to church. For us to baptize someone the requirements are, they have to come to 3 weeks of church for all three hours. He is going back to Bogota this week!! Why?!?! Haha, but he said he'll want to go to church with missionaries there so we're working on getting that figured out for this week. Well that's the work for this week. Got to find those who are ready for us this week! Keep having Family Home Evening and reading the scriptures for me! And Share the Gospel with everyone you can! That's missionary talk Haha! But really DO IT!
