Teaching English Too

Alright so this week has been kinda crazy. From Wednesday to Sunday it was normal, looking for people, teaching lessons,and doing all the other things that missionaries do.  But on Sunday things changed a little.  Elder Exilus, one of the other Elders in our apartment has had a nerve problem for the last little while, and he hasn't been able to get it resolved, so he’s been planning to go home and fix it then come back out.  We had all been hoping that he'd be able to finish the cycle here, and then when transfers happened, that he would go home and things could change.  But that’s not what went down.  On Sunday we got a call saying that he was flying home on Tuesday morning, and that Elder Wendel was going to be leaving for a different area too.  Soo it's now just Elder Fotu and I in the biggest area in the mission for only two elders and we have to start teaching both English and Spanish people, which kinda sucks.  (I'm afraid of English people; they're so much meaner than the Spanish people.)  So yeah, that’s the biggest difference between last week and this.
 Aside from that things are going really well here.  We’re just waiting for one of our investigators to complete the lessons and then he's ready for baptism.  Another one has a date for May 1st and Nube I'm planning on giving a date to as well for the 1st of May.  We have an appointment with her after we finish our letter writing.  Our last meeting we had with her on Friday went really well, we decided to read 3 Nephi 11 with her because she hadn't read from the Book of Mormon yet so I figured that it'd help her and we could kinda explain it as we read.  So we got to the part about baptism and got into a little discussion about how everyone needs to be baptized in order to be reunited with their heavenly father after this life.  Then she started talking about her family a little and about how they are all Catholic, herself included and that they had all been baptized Catholic.  She understood that she had to be baptized correctly, by someone who has the authority.  So her question to us was "Can I be Baptized?" To which we very happily responded yes.  But I kinda dropped the ball a little and didn't extend a baptismal invitation there, but it'll be OK, cause that’s what my biggest goal is for her today.  
 But yeah, everything is going good here.  My Spanish continues to improve with the help of Heavenly Father and all the blessings he's given me.  I love you and miss you all.
