Letter #50 5/7/12 Buenas Tardes!

Baptismal Font at the "Prayer House"

The Prayer House at Angostura
Hey! We had a pretty busy week, unfortunately we weren´t that busy with investigadors, but we had some pretty intense/spiritual meetings. First of all, i got the package from Aunt Marcie! Muchas gracias!!! And thanks for the fotos of Jackson and Slater too. Looks like jack had a blast! 5 de Mayo was hardly celebrated here. Actually of all the hollidays i´ve witnessed was the holliday with the least amount of drunk people. Like i said, this past week we didn´t have that much time, Tuesday we had our zone meeting, and wednesday we went the Mochis for the conference with Elder Tenorio. He was awesome!! I learned a ton, but we didn´t get back until late Thursday. Even with our busy schedule, we were still able to have some great lessons and bring a worthy number of people to church sunday.

We had a pretty awesome experience Friday. The day started out pretty ugly, we both woke up feeling really sick because of something we ate Thursday, i won´t lie, i felt horrible, and so did Elder Calleja. We were really tempted to call it a day and stay in bed and recover the whole day, but we new we needed to leave and work. And it´s a good thing we did because we found an Escogido!! His name is Felipe and i am 100 percent certain that we were led by the spirit to arrive to his house. He is the son of a reference from a reference that a less active member gave us. The first time we went with the reference, the lady completly rejected everything, we taught her lesson 1 and she didn´t even accept the free book of mormon we give out to everyone. We were guided by the spirit to pass by her house and ended up finding Felipe. He accepted a baptismal date and kept asking us why the missionaries hadn´t arrived to his house sooner. Sunday he even brought his friend with him.

Sunday we had a full house in church. There weren´t enough seats for all the people! A few less active members came who hadn´t come in years, and since they visited last they´ve gone the a lot of other christian churches. Over the course of time they´ve forgotten the right way to pray and be reverent. During church there were about 3 people who kept shouting "praise the Lord!!" or "Haleluja!" every 2 minutes. They also think that when one person prays, everyone should say there own personal prayer out. Other than that, the service Sunday was great.

So about the mothers day phone call, we´re going to do the calls from prayer house you guys can call at 8 PM on Sunday. The number is 6977348336. We´ll be able to talk for 1 hour. Hope you´re able to call! Also, mom should be the one i talk to according to a rule made by President. Hope youi´re able to call!!

Hope you all have an amazing week! Love you all, Elder Mecham
