We were going to have a baptism this past Friday. But, Satan works hard. I don't know why, but he does. We arrived at the church, soaking wet from the downpour of rain. We got to the church, and set everything up for the lady and her son that were going to be baptized. But, we noticed something... After an hour she didn't show up... So we called her, and she said that she couldn't get transportation and that it was absolutely pouring rain, so she couldn't go (which it was raining pretty hard). So, my companion and I, we went outside, looked for about 30 minutes looking for a small moto taxi that could take us to the lady's house and that could bring her to the chapel. After the half hour, we found one, and we got to the lady's house. We were drenched, but she and her son arrived nice and dry. It wasn't a super huge deal, but we were able to get transportation for the lady.

We have walked and walked and walked to go and visit our most positive people...We were walking down the street, when this guy on a motorcycle just calls out at us and stops by us...He asked us to pray for him, so, in the middle of the busy street, we offered a prayer of safety for him and his family. We finished, and he thanked us...I've prayed for him every day since.
But this is the fist birthday I've had in a little while where I've felt different. I'm not a ... teenager anymore. I'm an adult... since I've made it 20 years, I should thank God for every one of them.
But conference for us was great, mainly because we had an investigator family show up!!!!! The brother and his wife of Amaida, our awesome convert. But the talks were awesome as always. The three apostles were truly called of God, I felt the Spirit affirm their apostolic authority. We are blessed to live in a time where God still loves us, and calls servants to guide us.
"To be honest, the book of Mormon is so, so , so much better for the missionary work. ... the Book of Mormon brings reason, and even better, it brings the Spirit. but sometimes I just wish the Book of Mormon was more common..."
Elder Woods(the one with the biggest smile) and fellow missionaries in Guatemala are all smiles talking about the Book of Mormon.
Elder Woods Out in the Woods for the Lord
Can you see that tiny white speck of a house off to the right in the distance? That is where the investigators are and that is where Elder Woods and companion are headed. Doing the Lord’s work leads His missionaries onto some sketchy-looking byways. The Elders are confident, though, the Lord has their backs and will protect.
Last Saturday, we saw a satilite transmission conference with President Russell M. Nelson. He said, with his apostolic authourity, that he blessed all of the families of the missionaries that were present and watching with good health.
