Mission goal (505 Baptisms in May)

This week was more fantastic than the others. We got the information of the goal that our mission is having for May, 505 baptisms. We set the personal goal of having 12 baptisms this next month.

We had the baptism of four this last Saturday.
Mishel (16)
Nohelia (11)
Ema (11)
Milagros (19)

It was a really cool experience. I know that the Lord is blessing us.

So the first of the week we were really stressed out because we did the math of the numbers the Mission President had challenged us, and figured out that after the baptisms of the people in April that we were dead. There were not sufficient investigators for May.

We planned for the next week and prayed for the spirit of revelation. My companion and I received revelation that we needed to write the possible future investigators and we needed to have a division (splits). So we planned it for Saturday. Two future missionaries that have the Melchizedek Priesthood went out with us on Saturday. We ended the week with 55 lessons!! Along with the four people that got baptized we now have 11 of 12 baptismal dates for the month of May.

I don’t know how everything worked out, but it did. I know that the Lord has so many people in our area that are prepared and ready to hear the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and make this decision in their lives.

My companion is pretty cool. We do have our differences but are having success. A lot of hard work and we have the fruits of our labors.

I love you guys. Please pray for us and also for the mission so that we can have this extra help to complete our goals that we have set. I know that the power of prayer is huge.

¿Que tal la buena vida en mi casa?

I am so excited for the month of May. I don’t know if I will be here still but that doesn’t make any kind of a difference. 12
