¿Qué mas, bien?

Basically I don´t have an idea what to call my letters now so I just put something they always say in paisalandia.

So, we´re here working, achieving goals, getting better...we´ve been having a couple good weeks. Last May when I had just gotten to the area we were teaching Jhonathan Alzate, a drug addict that was the son of a member. He had so many addictions to different things. But, he wouldn´t come to church so we told him that he´d have to start coming to church or we wouldn´t be able to spend so much time with him. But, the things that we taught stuck. He went to rehab and we´ve been visiting him this last week and he´s coming to church now and should get baptized in two weeks. Honestly, I had thought that he was almost a lost cause back then. But, God obviously doesn´t think like that. God prepared him, and at the same time me cortó la cabeza ["He cut my head off"...similar to our saying "don't bite my head off".] saying I shouldn´t do that.   [God doesn't give up on people.  We shouldn't either.]

We´re fighting for our baptisms these weeks, it doesn´t come easy. There´s always other challenges and while these people want to get baptized, they´re going to get baptized. Allí vamos.

Always Great,
Élder Hicken
