The Intersections

Hi everyone!!

Cambios are this week, and I´m getting a new companion tomorrow. But I´m staying here in Aurora! Which is really good, I feel like I´m just barely starting to figure out my way around this huge area.

So there are a lot of people that seem to make their living in intersections here. In every intersection big enough to have a stoplight, there are always people performing or selling things. Yesterday on the way to church I saw a man breathing, so that was pretty cool. My favorites though are the windshield washers. They´re amazing. They can clean the windshield of your car in about 20 seconds, and they can do 3 or 4 cars just while they´re waiting for the green light. 

So I realized that I´ve been neglecting talking about the people here, especially our investigators, so I´ll try to tell you a little more about them from now on. Today I just wanted to tell you about Hammurabi. He´s about 25 years old, and he is what we like to call "de oro." He is golden. He has so much faith! He first started investigating the church when he showed up to the Sunday worship services in another ward. The missionaries there passed on his contact information to La Aurora Ward, but the missionaries here weren´t able to contact him for about a week. But he went to church again in the other ward the following Sunday. Apparently he told the missionaries there, "No one contacted me this week, but I have feet, so I came here myself." And he always has that attitude. His mom is not all that supportive of the church, so we can´t teach him in his house, we always have to find members who are willing to host the lesson, but that has actually been really good. Now a lot of members know him and are able to fellowship him. He was scheduled to be baptized at the beginning of this month, but due to some personal issues we had to reschedule it for the second of July. But he is bien preparado. I´m so excited to finally see him get baptized, and I hope I´ll be able to tell you all about that here in a couple of weeks. 

Ok, out of time. I love and miss you all. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that he lives today. 

And remember, "No esperes el momento perfecto, toma el momento y hazlo perfecto." Don´t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect.
