Everyone! How goes it? We have seen some of thee biggest miracles the past 2 weeks here in thee Maximo Jerez of Managua! We had people who haven't been to church in years return, healings through the faith of the members, and of course, A BAPTISM! The Lord is working grand miracles in the of the Nicaragua Managua North Mission. We are about to have over 200 baptisms in the month of April, and the rainy season is upon us. Before we get into it, congratulations to Sister Hays from the Ol' SOJO, getting her mission call to the Philippines, speaking Tag-a-log (HAHA). Prepare yourself for the time of your life! I'm one proud Elder! Also, gracias a mi madre y the beloved Nicole Curtis + Family for hooking me up FAT these past weeks with packages, loaded with things from the USA.
Monday and Tuesday we had meetings with all the new leaders and new missionaries here in Managua. It's always a great time seeing all the little babies!
Wednesday we did divisions with my boy ELDER HUGHES! We had one of the funnest days working together in the Maximo! Throwback to the week before the mish with the picture.
Thursday and Friday we also did divisions with other ZLs in the mission. I worked with my boys Elder Mendez (Step-Dad) and Elder Basham. What a time it was working and sweating like donkeys!
Saturday, we saw the miracle of a sister who, after 14 years of investigating the church, finally decided to get baptized! A few days before, she told us that she had a dream the night before that changed her life. She said that she dreamed that the Savior himself took her by the hand into a river and baptized her. She paid great attention to her dress in the dream as well, and the next day, her neighbor, who is a member of the Church, showed her the EXACT same dress that she used her in dream. They both started crying, and in that moment she knew she needed to get baptized. One of the biggest miracles I've seen in these 9 months..
God is a god of miracles, and he will work them in your lives. Come unto him, accept the invitation, 'Walk with me', and I promise that you will see his Holy Hand working those miracles you need in your life. He suffered, and through that suffering and his blood, we can clean up. He needs you guys, EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU to recommit today to be the best you can. He needs his valiant sons and daughters fighting alongside him today, tomorrow, and forever!
Until next week, my beloved ones. I love each of you! Enjoy this week, include us in your prayers! We are going to need them.
