Tengo gozo en mi alma hoy!

I´m definitely running out of ways to start my emails. my journal entries too. they all start with ¨today¨ or something like that. it looks quite communistic. (monty python:¨get on with it!!!!¨) ok.
SO, this week was well... mas o menos. it started out cool cuz we were going to baptize 3 niños but after filling up the font on wednesday they changed their minds because their dad who doesn´t even live with them anymore told them that if they got baptized it would ruin everything and said some other stuff to threaten them like that he wouldn´t come visit them anymore and stuff like that. frankly i don´t think that would be a bad thing. he sounds like quite the tool. so ya, niños have very limited capacity to understand things that don´t have dramatic effects immediately in their lives (ha, lots of adults too for that matter... especially in Oax) like eternal salvation. they don´t realize that they are ditching this opportunity to enter the gate to the path to the Celestial kingdom for a dad that abandoned them... anyway, so they didn´t get baptized, so this week we´ve just been looking for new investigators and teaching recent converts. its been pretty slow but i´ve gotten to meet some cool new people. well, my comps freaking out cuz we´re gonna be like 1 minute late for our district meeting so thats all i get to write this week. I love you all and thank you so much for your emails and support. Hasta la proxima!
