Hey y'all we had another super good week down here in the heart of Texas. We definitely saw the Lord's hand and were able to set 6 baptismal dates in our area for the month of August. First was with Pascual and his son Oscar. They were both really excited to accept the date of August 5th. We can definitely sense that they are changing and showing fruits of repentance. When we asked Pascual's wife what this meant for her family, she told us that she had been praying for her husband to change and a few days later we showed up knocking at their door. We are also working with 2 of their other sons, Kevin who is 18 and Francisco who is 14. They have expressed interest, it's just a matter of helping them know how to receive an answer from God.
As well we were able to set a date for August 12th with Reyna, Tatianna, Angie and Antony. We held off on officially setting one with Nelly and Horacio just because they still aren't super set on getting married. Nelly told us on Saturday that if she sees a change in Horacio, she'll marry him.

And to top it all off, on Sunday we had 8 of our investigators come to church which amounted to 13 people who came if you include the children under the age of 8. It was a really rewarding sight especially after having worked so hard during the week. I'm really enjoying the mission and know that these last 6 months are going to fly by as we continue to pound the pavement and build relationships with the members in the ward.
