Hola!

    Well, this week half of our progressing investigators left our area... One for Yoro, where there are no missionaries and the other for the military with his brother-in-law.

    The bright side is that José Constantino who left for Yoro shouldn't be gone for more than a couple of weeks, and he told us that as soon as he gets back he wants to be baptized.

     Levi left for the military on Friday which was awful.  Hna. Tajiboy and I were on the verge of tears when Veronica told us. Saturday we heard that there were so many people that reported that they sent back Levi and his brother-in-law. Which is good for us because we have our investigators back, but bad for them because that leaves them jobless still. It has been hard for them, but I know that as they exercise their faith to seek God first they will be blessed with the things that they need according to the Lord's timing.

     It is a hard lesson to learn sometimes to put the Lord's will before your own. This week our district leader shared a talk about becoming a consecrated missionary. One line sticks out every time I read, or even think about the talk--''It's not about what you want, it's about what the Lord wants.'' That's really at the essence of what it means to consecrate yourself and really put the Lord first. He knows and sees so much more than we can, and will really truly guide us to just the right places for us to grow and develop. It never ceases to amaze me what Heavenly Father can do when I turn things over to HIm and seek His will!

Well, Hasta la proxima semana!
Hna. Thacker
