18 down, 6 to go...

A. LA. VIDA. only 6 more months in guatemala...how sad:( i literally thought i was going to have a panic attack this last weekend when i realized that its the middle of march, and that in a short 6 months i will be on a plane heading back to Utah...what in the world is hapenning. but its all good! i still have a little time to eat more tortillas and frijoles and just love this country! this last week was pretty good! we saw some miralces at church on sunday which was awesome, and we ended up baptizing a little girl! now her and her mom are converts! her mom got baptized back in november, but then the little girl got really really sick and was in the hospital for like 3 months, doctors said she wasnt going to live because of this, that, and the other, but shes doing really good and was so excited to get baptized on sunday! we had a great baptismal service, and then they invited us over for lunch, so it worked out pretty good! Then last night elder schafer and i had a sweet family home evening with one of our converts and her distant family that she invited over. it was a second visit, and we shared about the restoration and then watched a short version of the Joseph Smith movie, and it slammed them with the spirit, which was just what we needed! we are seeing a lot of progress in our area, which is good! we are really excited for the next few weeks, and hopefully we will be able to swing a few baptisms as well! hope everyone is doing great and having a great year! before you know it summer will be here! have a great week and happy birthday to all! love you guys!
Elder Slaymaker
