Blessings from O/L/A

Alrighty, how are people? Good? I hope it's good!!!

So, this week went by crazy fast, I don't know where all the time goes. Our week was pretty good, we have some really good progressing people.
So we have been working a ton with O/L/A, or Orar, Leer, y Asistir. In english P/R/A, pray, read, and attend. These three things are the key for our investigators to get an answer, grow in faith and to be ready to be baptized. So we have been focusing on that a lot and it has been working.
Today for p-day we got our haircut from the Haircut place that our convert Zulma Sanchez works at. After that we went home and didn't do much else, the time goes by even faster on p-day.
It was a pretty good week, we had a lot of lessons, and a pretty sweet experience with our investigator Carol Enciso on Sunday. She came to church on Sunday and brought her son!! She is the one that should be baptized this week, we are working really hard to pull it off. The biggest thing we are working on is that she has a little bit of a problem with smoking. However, she has already almost completely given it up and today we have an appointment to make sure she is doing good with that and that she has stopped smoking completely to be ready this week before her baptism!! On Sunday we had a really powerful lesson with her, where she was able to tell us how she felt about her baptism coming up. She has a big fear of the commitment of baptism. She is afraid that she will get baptized and make this commitment with God and then that she will be forgotten and left behind. We were able to talk to her and help her through it, especially because we had the help of two members backing us up and letting her know that she will not be left alone. It was key to have the members there to support and help her, and this week we are going to be doing everything possible to help her make this step. She is fantastic!!!
Sundays are just good days, we were able to have four investigators at church and almost all of them are progressing toward a baptism date. Good things are coming ahead!!!!
Still struggling on finding new investigators but this week we are going to try everything possible to change that.
I heard that Presidente Baquerizo said yes to the skyping with Janica!!!!!! He is the best President ever, so darny darn excited!!!!!!!!!
I love you guys, like a whole lot
