Week 27: Six Months

No where in Puerto had internet yesterday in the afternoon so we had to write Tuesday again.

Well I've hit six months in the mission this past Friday. Things are going well here. People aren't as receptive in this area because there is literally a church on every corner. But it's a good time out here in Puerto.

There is a guy who makes stuff out of turtle shell like: rings, earrings, sunglasses. It's pretty cool, let me know if anyone wants something. I'll send some pics of one i got.

My belt no longer works. It's too big so hopefully there's a belt in the package hah? It takes about a month for packages to get here so everything for Christmas should be sent around this week or next. It's literally been pouring all week we've been in rubber boots the whole week. I feel like I'm back on the farm irrigating. I'll send a pic of one of the lakes we had to cross ha ha. It's pretty funny.

President came on Friday. We had a multi- zone meeting again. Well it was just a zone meeting with our zone in Puerto, it was good. It's always the best when we have those because we always eat something really good. I only ate half of my stuff because I haven't been real hungry this past  week. Also Hermana Poncillo came and checked our house, we passed with flying colors our house was dang near perfect!

On Sunday, it was pouring rain and we had to bring investigators to church but we were already late and the one we wanted to bring lived way the heck out there but we walked through the mud and rain and got here and got her to church. We had a feeling of the spirit strong after church so we asked our investigator who we had been teaching for a while and asked if she would like to be baptized right now and she said she would. So we were able to have a baptism on Sunday, truly a miracle of God. We had worked and worked all week and had really found no one positive but God blessed us with a little blessing to keep hope alive. It was quite amazing.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

Con Amor,
Elder Thackeray
