Another great week in Lugo!

the district -(love how low the ceilings are! they all look like giants!)

Hello Family!
We had a pretty good week this week. Baptizing the two people we always met with though did put a toll on it.
But our week still turned out fine. We met with a super cool guy named Wellington. He has been doing well but it's difficult for him to come to church because he works as a DJ and doesn't get home until 6 in the morning Sunday morning. So he hasn't come to church yet but he's meeting with us and reading. He offered the prayer at the end and he was talking about feeling the spirit with us and so it was a good experience. He's one of those people that believe in God but doesn't belong to a church.
We also visited Isidro in the hospital again. He's been in there for a while. Now things are going well hopefully he's out soon. He has a Book of Mormon and has read a bit of it. He loves our visits so hopefully it will help us when he gets out and he will come to church and stuff.

We are also meeting with a guy named Luis. He is about 80 years old and Dominican. He loves to meet with us. He had met with missionaries before and was going to get baptized, got interviewed and everything but didn't show up to his baptism. They had the font filled and everything. And this font's not easy to fill up either. On Wednesday, we were talking with him about faith, repentance, and baptism and I invited him to be baptized on the 23rd of this month (Elder Gorge's b day btw) Hopefully he doesn't stand us up.
We had a cool experience with the spirit on Thursday. It was about nine at night and I felt I should call Margarita and set up a lesson. Turns out she was at home reading the scriptures and a thought came to her head thinking we weren't going to come by anymore because she's was now baptized and she was sad about it cuz she likes our visits. Right then she gets a call from me asking when we can come by. Right in the precise moment. She also gave us a member reference this week, one of her friends. We are meeting with him tomorrow.
the zone leaders got hit by a car but they are fine.
 (yeah, going to ask for more details on this one-
you can't send this and not give more details!!)
We had a really cool branch activity on Saturday. We had a bbq and it was super good it was a good thing we brought bbq sauce cuz no one did. They had no clue that you even put it on ribs which I don't understand cuz it has pictures of ribs on the bottle. Anyway, they were all amazed by it. It was funny for us Americans cuz we're so used to it. It wasn't even that good of bbq sauce.
Other than that, it's been a pretty normal week. Got sick yesterday so that slowed us down a bit. Just a sore throat and nasal congestion should be good soon.
Hope you all have a good week.
Love You!!

PS The baptisms last week were Elder Gorge's 3rd and 4th baptisms. He had 2 with his first trainer so he's pretty excited, first one he baptized though.
