So this week was really cool here in Nicaragua. The baptism for Mario Pilarte went great and the whole family came. The one that is dressed in white in the photo is Mario and the the rest is his family that are all members already. Mario has probably been my coolest investigator and baptism here in the mission. He has completely changed and everyone was surprised that he did. They still dont believe it. He and his family are all happy now and complete.
This Sunday at church we got Juan Silva there and also another family that I thought wouldn't come. I almost didn't recognize them when they walked up to me. I was kind of in shock for a little bit. The Husband has collected books from the Church for years and has read them all. Like The Book of Mormon, "Jesus the Christ", "A Marvelous Work And A Wonder", "The Articles of Faith" and others, including a stack of Liahonas. He isn't a member though but he knows that the church is true. We put the baptismal date for the 14th of May. Erica is still taking her time but is progressing.
Tell Ryan that I am up for dressing as Bat Thumb if he dresses up as Blue Jay haha.
Those pictures are awesome of the family. It sounds like Hunter and Samantha had a real good time. Hey is Hunter still playing video games a lot? If so let him know that I can get almost any game for any system here for a dollar each. I am already preparing a package to send home of a lot of games.
Well I love you guys a ton and I want to hear from you guys next week too with pictures.
