Yesterday we had a meeting with President in Guadalajara to check on the progress of the new missionaries. So we left Sunday after church to go on the 4 hour drive to Guadalajara from Morelia. We didn't end up getting home until Monday night at about 6:30... so we didn't have time to write home on our P-day. The meeting was really good but it was weird thinking about my first meeting that I had like that one. Elder Vargas is getting ready for his next first 6 weeks while I am preparing myself for the last 6 weeks of my mission. Its kind of weird right? It was a good meeting but we got home late.
This was one of the best weeks of my mission. We had a lot of success with some investigators and members working with us in the work.
We also had a surprise meeting with President last Saturday. We have had so many meetings lately that I honestly have been kind of fed up with them.. but this surprise meeting was different. We watched Meet the Mormons. It was a really good movie and although its not a movie helping us know how to preach the gospel... it is a way we can get people to know more about our Church. It will be streaming here in movie theaters in Morelia and Guadalajara this Friday and will be in movie theatures for about 10 days here... or something like that. It's kind of sad but only the missionaries in Guadalajara and Morelia were able to see the movie because it's not going to be played in the other cities and towns in our mission. We were lucky to see it twice because we watched it last Saturday with the missionaries in Morelia and then yesterday before our meeting with the president in Guadalajara, he showed the movie to all the missionaries in Guadalajara and since we were there we watched it with them too. It was an awesome movie but it was even cooler that all of the missionaries were there from Guadalajara. I thought I wouldn't be able to see a lot of my companions and friends from the mission before ending. It was awesome to see a lot of them.
We have a lot of great investigators that have been progressing... a lot of which you don't know who they are. We had a beautiful baptism this last week with a sister named Alondra. She is twelve and has been in the teaching for a long time but hasn't wanted to be baptized... her parents aren't married so it's been kind of hard to help them out... they can't progress until they get married and it's kind of tougher to get married here in México then in the United States... I'm not speaking from personal experience but from what I have heard ;)
We have a lot more people in teaching and have a lot that want to be baptized... and are progressing to be baptized... it's amazing what the Lord is doing in Prados Verdes and I feel honored to be a part of His work here.
