Week 11

Well, it's been another great week in Houston, Texas! This week was the last week of the transfer, meaning I'm half-way done with my training! The time has flown by! (I feel like I say that every week.. But it's true.) This is my trainer's last transfer before she heads back home to Utah. Or, in mission lingo, she's "dying" after this transfer. Or, in other mission lingo, I'm "killing" her. It took a while to figure out all the weird terms missionaries use, haha!

We spent A LOT of time this week doing the Area Book. We are in the process of transferring all the records from the paper area book into the area book app on the iPads. It's taking It was supposed to all be transferred over by the end of the transfer, but we still have 70 or so records to enter. So we'll be doing it a lot this week, too. It will be so nice to have all those records in the iPads, though!

Other than that, we have been continually working with our investigators and helping them progress towards baptism. Luis and Carlos will most likely be baptized in the upcoming weeks, so we're excited for that! One day, we were at Luis' house teaching him and his friend, Hugo. Luis lives probably 15 minutes or so from our apartment, so at 9:05ish we were trying to wrap up our lesson so that we could get home on time at 9:30. But Hugo kept talking and talking and talking. We weren't able to leave until 9:22. So on the way home we're driving as fast as Tiwi (the black box that monitors our driving and yells at us when we speed) would let us, and somehow, SOMEHOW, we hit every green/yellow light and we were pulling into the parking lot of our apartment at exactly 9:30 pm. It was a miracle. Like Nephi says, God will always give us a way to keep the commandments!

Our recent convert, Geronimo, is doing great! He was at church yesterday without us having to remind him and without us having to remind the member to go pick him up. This week he actually came with us to help teach another investigator! It was really awesome!! He was able to share how he decided to be baptized and it helped the other investigators, Noe and Araceli, realize that maybe baptism is something that they'd be interested in!

That's all the time I have this week! The gospel is true!

Hermana Baker

Last P-day we went back to the Patriarch's house and he let us go fishing in the lake off of his deck! That's one way to make an Hermana happy!!

The Lake: don't look too closely at Hna Bonar's arms. She kept moving while I was taking the picture!
