Clark Kent (Cazador Week 19)

Clark Kent. That is what everyone says when Elder Clarke says his name. It´s pretty funny how everyone here knows who superman is.

Anyway, this week has been pretty good. We have started teaching Celeste, the girlfriend of a kid in our ward who is leaving on a mission in June (apparently no one warned him that girlfriends never wait). But she has a solid testimony of the church. She has gone to church a few times and read part of the Book of Mormon and prayed and asked God if it was true and He said yes. That is the way God works, you do your part by reading and going to church and then ask Him if it is true and He answers. It´s pretty simple. So she is getting baptized because she wants to not and because her boyfriend wants her too, which is good.

Then we have Angel, a 91 year old man. He is the grandfather of a member and has talked to missionaries lots of times but never wanted to get baptized. Then last week during church he told me to come over and said ¨me voy a bautizar. Pregunté a Dios y Él me dijo que sí.¨ Or something like that. Basically he had prayed about baptism a lot and never got an answer but when he did it again a week ago God told him that he needs to get baptized. So we are working with him and he should be baptized soon, which is awesome. God has been answering a lot of prayers here the past week; just like He normally does.

Other than that Silvia and Tatiana are still loving the church and the Book of Mormon but their husbands aren't helping them with the whole getting married problem. My companion, Elder Clarke, is really cool. He has a really happy and positive attitude all the time that just rubs off on people making everyone happy. He is a great companion.

That is all for this week. See you all next time.

Nos Vemos,
Elder Gardner
