RICHARD GOT BAPTIZED!!!Alma 36:11 My ason, give ear to my words; for I swear unto you, that inasmuch as ye shall keep the commandments of God ye shall prosper in the land. So sometimes I understand the scriptures better in spanish so here is a quick English lesson. "Inasmuch" what does it mean? "To the degree" or "to the extent" . SO to the degree that we keep the commandments, measures the degree of blessings we will receive. Is the Sabbath DAY a Day or 2 hours in Church? To what extent do we strive to keep the commandments?An eventful week here. Wednesday we helped Richard Cachiguango and his mom work in their fields early in the morning. Then after lots of phone calls we made it possible for him to get baptized and he passed his interview that night. Lots of people came to support him and he gave an awesome testimony.We were looking at Richard's Records and realized that his Birthday was the following day (Thursday) so we woke up early and went to his house and cooked him pancakes. he woke up and was super surprised. His mom said we had to give him spankings and he replied "no, we need to keep the law of Chastity" and me and my companion died laughing.The Torín Pino family (venezuelan family) will get baptized this week hopefully. Mom, Dad, and one of the kids that is older than 8.They canceled my Districts weekly district meeting and told us to have it after the zone conference cause Pres. wanted to see it. I was freaking our kinda losing my mind but it turned out super good and he loved it.Elder Murcia and I are super happy and Excited. We are going to have 4 baptisms in the Month. I have never had that and it is kinda rare. Half of the baptisms this month from the entire Zone are from us. We put the goal of 4 about two months ago and it took a lot of faith and hard work to make it. We really had miracles to pull it off with the strikes and so we have been studying humility this week cause the Lord really is Hastening his work here. Faith, and our determination really shows the Lord how badly we want his help.-Elder Hallsted
