Ups and Downs

August 19, 2013 
During the week we contacted a family who´s grandma just passed away and shared the plan of salvation. We had a noche de hogar (FHE) with a couple we are working with. Found a new contact and taught about the restoration and answered question she asked about Jose Smith.
We had a visit on one mountain and we didn´t want to go down and back up the other so we went through the jungle of corn and weeds. I don´t know how much time we saved if any, but it was much more fun.  We met those we were looking for. the son has problems with drinking, but we will try to help him out. We committed him to 24 hours.
September 15 is the Independence Day, but in Toto they have a feria (a fair) basically a month long party, from the 9th to the 30th.Saturday we had a baptismal service three were baptized, we are extremely happy for them.
At the baptism they announced the first hymn Come Follow Me and looked around for someone to play the piano. Kept looking and I walked up to the piano without any beforehand notice and whipped it out.  That is one of the only two hymns I feel comfortable and confident playing in front of people. Then they surprised us again saying the Elders will sing a special hymn. Nearer My God to Thee. Well that is the other one, so I played it as well. I am not as good as Justin but I made do.
This week we played basketball with the Naualah Zone that was fun!  
It was good to have our investigators come to church, we hope they will be baptized in September.Changes are Tuesday, I will stay in the same companionship and maybe have a trio. Only three in our Zone have changes. They are taking all the Elders out of Chiyax and putting in four new ones. Thanks for all you do.
