2 Baptisms!

Nathan's grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on May 23. It was very hard for Nate to not come home, but he seemed to work through it and study more of the Plan of Salvation. Nate wrote his testimony to her. It was beautiful. Grandma died on June 4. We were able to talk to Nate's mission president. The President said that Nate is a wonderful missionary. Every area where he goes lots of work gets done. The President said he wishes all his missionaries were like Nate. That was a sweet tender mercy to hear at a tender time.

Hey mother, 

This week has been full of surprises. Well this week seemed to go by really slow because we had 2 baptisms this Saturday! We are really truckin along here in Sol Del Pinar! I have been recently study the Plan of Salvation a lot more in depth. With the news of Grandma and all. I have really started to understand this Plan a lot more. There was a scripture that I came across a scripture in 2 Nephi 9:6-7.
 For as death hath passed upon all men, to fulfill the merciful plan of the great Creator, there must needs be a power of resurrection, and the resurrection must needs come unto man by reason of the fall; and the fall came by reason of transgression; and because man became fallen they were cut off from the presence of the Lord.
 Wherefore, it must needs be an infinite atonement—save it should be an infinite atonement this corruption could not put on incorruption. Wherefore, the first judgment which came upon man must needs have remained to an endless duration. And if so, this flesh must have laid down to rot and to crumble to its mother earth, to rise no more.

The two people that we baptized this Saturday!
Well this week we have been working soo hard. We have had a really good time here in my area! We Baptized 2 people this Saturday. I will attach photos later. But they are soo awesome. The Lord is always blessing us in our time of need. Well I don't know if I told you all but recently I have been called to be District Leader! It has been alright. It isn't really that hard. I just have to be the example all the time in all things... not that hard right? Haha but I know that the Lord is helping me work through my faults and helping me learn even more in this calling. 

This Month of June we have another baptism! And we are going to help marry a family and then baptize the Wife! We have a lot of good things that are going for us here! The ward is helping us now. 

Well this week as a Stake we had a service project. There is a street here that is really busy and really dirty with garbage. We got
Cleaning or hardly cleaning.

together as a Stake and we did a big cleaning of this street. It took us 4 hours of cleaning but we finally completed it! 

Well just wanted to tell you a little bit about what has happened this week and what is coming up!

At first we didn't have shovels or brooms so pick up the trash. And me being a Boy Scout found a pipe and started to work.
