April 24, 2012 - A pair of my shoes received an honorable discharge last week. They fought valiantly and almost made the two years.
I felt my first seismic tremor yesterday! I have been waiting almost two years to feel some sort of earth-shaking, and I was worried that my two years of California would come and go with nothing. It lasted all of 3 seconds and most people didn't notice it (not exactly a seismic Armageddon), but it was sweet!
We are still working with the man who has been an investigator for 35 years. We are hoping to baptize him on the 12th of May! We have gotten him addicted to family history (although it is somewhat difficult to do since he is from Colombia).
On Thursday we had several appointments fall through in the morning, so as we were taking home Pablo (the bishop's son, who helps us with appointments), we took a different route home from that which we usually take, and in the process ran into María, the Peruvian sister who was baptized a few weeks ago, and we were able to go to her house and teach her! She said it was a miracle that we found her because she was having a rough day. Somewhere along the way, I had forgotten that God controls even whether appointments fall through or not. Appointments falling through doesn't mean that our schedule is shot--it could mean that God has other plans for us.
