7 new missionaries came to the mission, and 26 went home. Wow! That's a lot. I got a new companion in the process. Elder Butts from Texas. He's a great guy, he's only got 6 months in the mission, and is super humble. I appreciate that.
Veronica Choque told us the other day that she prayed, and received an answer, she wants to be baptized ASAP! This weekend will be Stake Conference, so on the 14th she'll be making that sacred covenant. God is a God of miracles. We have found quite a few new people simply by working our tails off, and doing it with faith.
Saturday I feel like I worked SO HARD, and nothing happened at all. Sunday, we did the same thing and it was just miracle after miracle every half hour! The Lord has His ways to teach us, humble us, and at the same time hasten His work.
Help Him in this grand work!
