Hey! So this week has been sort of a sigh of relief for us in Tierra Amarilla. We have been seeing tons of progress in all of our investigators and in the members as well. Inez and Nelson are getting really excited for their wedding. Today they are going to the town to get the day and hour for their wedding and basically claim that they will be married . The Branch is getting ready with all the decorations and food for the actual party. But this week coming up is the week of transfers, so there is a chance that I could be going this time next week. But we will have to wait and see. I have already been here for 3 transfers and up until now I have never been in an area for more than 3 transfers. I think I am staying for one more because we have some really good momentum in the branch. Yesterday in church there were 3 men who got the priesthood all in one day! That might be a record for this branch. Those 3 that got the priesthood are 2 recent converts and one that has been returning to the church. The other first is that in the church yesterday we had a class for the YSA, or for those that are over 20 years old and aren't married. It was a good class and they all planned some activities to do in the following months. There are 7 or 8 in total and it's really cool because that's not something very common to have so many in Chile. Something in this mission that is being pushed more and more is the 'spirit of urgency' as everyone is calling it. Basically what the mission president is pushing for is that if someone is legitimately ready to be baptized that they should not wait more than is necessary. So we are changing gears with the missionary work to get things done a bit quicker!!
That is all for now. I hope everyone has a great week!!
