Elder Pedro: Baptisms, Lessons and Geronimo Update


This was one of the most event filled weeks of my mission. First off, the Salazar family got baptized on Saturday. I had the privilege of baptizing the wife and the daughter it was so awesome. We had 60 people at the baptism which is pretty good. Their confirmations on Sunday were amazing too, Elder Broderick and I blessed their first sacrament too. I also taught a lot this week with members. We got 4 lessons with members present which is the most I've ever done in a week. There was a lot of stuff happening in my District to so I had to talk to President Toombs everyday last week and I met with him quite a bit. He even came to our District Meeting. He told me that I would be leaving the are. I told him that I really want to stay so we will see what happens. There is a new Senior Couple who will be serving in this ward next transfer and they will be doing Less Active work. There are 700 people on the rosters and 130 that come each week. We are still teaching Geronimo and he has finished 1 Nephi already which we were pretty surprised at. The Salazar's want us to teach their Mom too so we might start doing that. There is still a lot of good stuff happening in this area.
