Week 60

September 2, 2014

Wow we've had a great week, which included a baptism! Wohoo! Actually, it wasn't really that exciting. Basically, someone realized that a 9 year old girl in Zaragoza that was baptized a year ago but didn't have any records in the church. She is very active, as is her family, but somehow the records had never been submitted. "We now [had] but one choice." We had to baptize her again. Yeah... kind of awkward, but it was a nice experience anyway. We taught her all the lessons super quickly and then next Sunday she was baptized. The miracles have continued this week. In a miracle truly unheard of here in Patzicia we had 12 investigators attending this last Sunday. Not sure how that happened... 

Really, this is one of my happiest times in my entire mission. I'm healthy, having success, have a great companion, am not suffering in the heat, am surrounded by incredible plants and mountains, and can look at cool corte where ever I go (except Zaragoza, since they don't use it there). I feel like it can't last for too long, because I think the Lord wants me to grow even more and as we all know that happens most often through trials. However, I'm trying to enjoy the moment while it lasts.

Hmmm, how about a cool quote: "A mission is like a grindstone. Whether you are ground down or polished up depends on what you are made of" Very true...

Love you all,

Elder Cannon
