Dear family and friends,It`s been... a week. Just remember that in the mission, the emotions are way more extreme than in regular life. Here`s what made me happy:
The other miracle is Dujardin. We had walked by his house earlier in the week and there was a ¨vela¨ or pre-funeral gathering. Here, the tradition when somebody dies is that the whole family and many friends come to stay up all night with the body. They sit in white plastic chairs and drink coffee and eat bread. Anyway, we decided to contact the house a few days later to try teaching the plan of salvation. Dujardin met us (age 30-something, it was his mom that passed away) and we talked at his gate about how he could see his mother again. He accepted a return appointment, in which we talked about baptism and he accepted a date for August 15th, even though he used to be Baptist and has studied with the Jehovah´s Witnesses. He walked into church on Sunday on his own. That was a HUGE miracle!
