Bronson seems to be rocking it in Saltillo. Another baptism this week, this time with a young (newly) married couple. Here is an excerpt from his letter:
The couple we were teaching, finally got baptized! They have been meeting with the missionaries off and on for over a year. They were unable to get baptized because they were not married. Â She didn’t want to get married at first, but thanks to my compaÃ±ero, they got all the papers and payments needed for the casamiento (wedding). The Relief Society president (picture below) brought some mÃ³le and a cake for them after the baptism. It was really a special experience for everyone.
You know what’s annoying? When a drunk guy thinks we are Jehovah’s Witnesses and he wants us to come out into the street to do some kind of big blessing. Yesterday, it was raining a lot, and we were walking down the street to the bus stop to go to the church building. Â A guy–I’m 95% sure that he was drunk– chased us down. He knew we were missionaries (because the Jehovah’s Witnesses frequently come through and knock on every door). Â He wanted me to speak to him in English about God, so I did. It was the best contact I have ever done. Afterwards, he took the time to explain to me that he needed that and that talking to me made his day. I hope he becomes another promising investigator because we need more!
Goodbye for now,
Elder Bronson Miner
