May 5, 2014 – We baptize when they are ready

Dear Mom, Dad, Lauren, and Ian,

Howdy! Happy late May 4th! Lol! It made me laugh that you're still watching Big Bang Theory. :D

I don't have a whole lot to write about today. We did something really nice for our neighbor that lives below us. She and her family aren't members, but they are really good friends with the missionaries and they are always taking good care of us. So for her birthday this past Saturday, the 4 of us bought her a cake and we had a little celebration to thank her for everything. She really appreciated it! We sang happy birthday to her with her kids and she cried, lol ^_^ She actually told us that she would like her son to be a missionary because of all the cool stuff she's seen the missionaries do!

The progress in the area is good, but at a pretty slow pace. We're trying to pick it up a little. This week we have had good citas, but I'm afraid that our only baptismal date has fallen through. The investigator said that she was not sure if she could keep a commitment that we gave her. At least she was honest and told us straightway, and that also means that she doesn't feel forced by us to be baptized. That's a good thing, because as missionaries, we invite people to do things, but we never obligate. Perhaps she just needs more time to build her own testimony and not rely on the words of our own. We'll still be around to help that investigator. ^_^

That's all I have to write about this week. It isn't terribly long. But I'll try and look for more adventure and little things to share with you next week! ^_^ Happy Cinco de Mayo! Miss you all!! Love you all :) Can't wait to talk you all on Mother's Day!
