Week 98 Corozal, Belize-June 12, 2017

A Week Full of Surprises

This last week was wild! Okay I will just get into it. So it was announced a while back that Elder Renlund was coming to El Salvador and was gonna have a conference for all the missionaries. Unfortunately, he wasn't gonna come to Belize...but! the day before the conference we found out that they were gonna transmit the conference to us! So, last Tuesday we dropped all our plans and went to Belize City to see (or rather just hear because the video wasn't working) the conference with Elder and Sister Alonso and Elder and Sister Renlund. It was awesome! Elder Renlund shared some funny stories and talked about keeping "an eye single to the glory of God". Super good! Last week we had planned to do interchanges on Thursday in order to have Elder Gallardo do the baptismal interviews for Steve, Christina, and Britney. But! we got another call on Wednesday to inform us of emergency changes and that Elder Gallardo was actually just gonna stay with us in a trio! My second time in a trio with Elder Gallardo! He is currently on his way back to Orange Walk but we spent 4 whole days working together and it was a fun time. A little bit of bad news, Christina didnt get interviewed last week because she is a little unsure right now about baptism. Also, on Saturday morning we got informed from the kids' mom that they wanted to postpone the baptism until this coming Saturday because Steve got really sick. Now, to give you guys some hope and peace of mind, we went to visit the whole family Saturday night, gave Steve a blessing, rescheduled the baptism, and even talked with Christina. This week we are goin back to see what she says and we are still gonna go through with the baptismal service on Saturday. Pray that everything goes well! Yesterday at church we were surprised as well to see that one of our newer investigators, Yanira, came even though she said she wasn't going to be able to. And she loved it! She's super positive! Pray for her too! It was a really hectic but fun week! This next week will be awesome too! I love you all and hope you have a great week! Bye!
