November 21st Chinandega Elder Mendez
More miracles guys,
Alright, so Mendez and I started the week with a ton of people ready to be baptized. Even though they are ready and nothing is holding them back, it is always a challenge. One family is so awesome. It was tough to get them to decide to get baptized and we want to be sure they never turn back. When I say never turn back, I mean never turn back. When Hermana Magda and Marlen finally made the decision to get baptized they were sure, but almost all of their friends rejected them. These women are friends with everyone in the city. In fact we were with them when their buddies passed by. Magda said she was going to get baptized and invited them, but all their faces turned to frowns and they started making fun of the church. Magda held strong and defended everything and so did Marlen. In the end they all left, but Magda was still a little worried. The next day we found out her friends were saying unkind things on Facebook and Whatsapp. They almost all rejected her. BUT, this did not bring her down, she told us that nothing is going to stop her and she is going to keep strong, Marlen also defended herself against many of her friends who rejected her. These people, are easily some of the best converts I have ever had. I'm so proud of them and I'm so glad that they took the leap. The other family pulled off a miracle with the help of members. They left work to help out the sister because she wasn't going to get baptized. They left and went to support her during the baptism at the last minute. Seriously guys incredible stuff her in La Roberto. I am so thankful for all the miracles that the Lord gives us, but to get these miracles we gotta work as a team, because satan's got a team too, and he always throws a wrench in things. God is way more cool, so he wins every time.
Love you guys!!!!!!
