WEEK 34 ~ Etchojoa ~ Elder Miranda

Hey family!!

To start off, well funny story... so we had intercambios on Tuesday and I was with Elder Haveron (gringo!!) We had planned to go to Las Guaybas (little, little town) about 40 minutes to an hour bicycle ride.

So we started going and it was about 3:30pm in the heat of the day, and it was really HOT, so we found a spot where we could shade up and rest for a little bit. While we were sitting a "fly" (what we thought was a fly) started bumping into our heads, haha So we swatted it, and it left, but in like 2 minutes it returned and started doing the same, but in this moment another one
came and started attacking me! Then I realized they were bees!! So I took off running!! haha and Elder Haveron just stayed there swatting the bees (and by now there are like 10- 15 bees) haha and while I was running away the bee chased me and stung me in the face! haha But I finally ran back and told Elder Haveron, and we rode away... and let me tell
you we were in the middle of a dirt road, away from civilization but there were people just sitting watching 2 white boys running like freaks, slapping, swatting, and a little bit of screaming! haha great time now looking back at it!

This week we really thought that our investigators were progressing, they were asking questions that were awesome! Like about the Plan of Salvation, and how we believe about the people that weren't baptized before they died and how we can do the temple work for them.. Really cool experience
teaching these people new hope for their family members that didn't make the best decisions. The message we bring or teach as missionaries is amazing! We can teach the principles but the depth of the message is amazing to me. It is truly amazing to me how perfect the Plan of
Salvation is. How God puts all the ways possible to move his work forward, and to get as many souls back to him in the celestial kingdom!
But really I stand all amazed at the Plan of Salvation! It is awesome!

So our investigators... THEY JUST DON'T COME TO CHURCH!!! IT's SOO FRUSTRATING!  We explain that if they want to know the church is true or if they want to get baptized they need to come to church. But they
just don't come... But we do have one investigator that is 15 years old her name is Paola, her mom is a less active, but she wants to be baptized. She has assisted the church a lot, so we asked her if she wanted to be baptized this Sunday and she said yes, so we are going to try our best to do all we can to help her make this covenant with our Heavenly Father! She is really cool, and really wants to be baptized, and she said that she wants to be a missionary!! So she is a awesome

Love you all! thanks for all you have done for me!!  I really love you all so much!!
