14 And their arm shall be my arm, and I will be their ashield and their buckler; and I will gird up their loins, and they shall fight manfully for me; and their benemies shall be under their feet; and I will let cfall the dsword in their behalf, and by the efire of mine indignation will I preserve them.

15 And the apoor and the bmeek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be clooking forth for the time of my coming, for it is dnigh at hand—

Golden Investigator =)

My Golden Investigator!

Things went pretty well this week we were able to start to find a lot of new investigators to be able to really get this area to start going. We had a couple mission activities (in the ward) and we are hoping to be able to keep going good =)
On Tuesday we got a few new investigators. 2 of them are a couple that make masks for the parties that go on here. They are pretty cool. We were able to teach about the necessity of going to church and we helped them feel that we are truly God's servants, it was a great lesson and we hope that they will start to progress =) Then on Wednesday we did divisions to be able to do some baptismal interviews here. While my district leader was doing one of the interviews we were outside waiting (the sisters and I) when a young man walked by and so we started to talk to him. His name is Jon. After teaching a little bit of the first lesson we challenged him to baptism and he accepted, he has a baptismal date for July 19. Then on Thursday we taught Elujan. He's new and started saying that he wants to join the church, but said it so directly that we were shocked. Then on Friday we were able to find a new family and put baptismal dates with them and they even gave us the reference of a new family with whom we also put baptismal dates on Sunday =) And then yesterday we were in Sacrament Meeting when a random guy came and talked to me and said that he had felt the need to join the church and so he looked it up on internet, talked to a missionary on mormon.org and she told him how to get to the church. He talked to me and said that he wanted to be baptized and already had a baptismal date for July 5... =)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=)=) Golden!!!!!!!!!! He stayed in church all three hours and is ready to learn everything. He's from Colombia and is very cool =)
So we had a pretty good week... ok, a really awesome week =) And Costa Rica even won their game in the World Cup =) Yeah, everything's awesome. Love you all, see ya!
