"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nephi 31:20

Shoveling Dirt

I may have shoveled dirt every single day this last week, except for Sunday of course. Mainly because it was the biggest party Candelaria has the whole year long and no one wanted to shovel their dirt. Surprisingly no one even talked about the Super Bowl except Brando, but we took him out to visit with us so he missed the game. Sounds like he didn't miss much.
With the whole week we stayed inside we talked about our investigators and decided that they weren't really getting anywhere -- especially the ones that have killed someone, that have to get divorced to get married, and many other situations that just won't get them baptized any time soon... apart from the fact they don't seem to come to Church. So, this week when we went out to work we had nothing. Almost absolutely nothing. But, the Lord helped us out a little bit and we were able to find 4 families for the extra time we had to find them. How did we find them? That's right. Shoveling dirt.
Attached is a photo of Elder Segura's pillow when he fell asleep after he got his almost operation. If you can't notice, he drools. Blood.
And another which is pretty much what we looked like for a few days after his almost operation.
Transfers passed and I'm still here in Candelaria with Elder Segura until at least mid-March. So, I figure we'll go shovel some more dirt.
Love you all,
Elder Andrews

A pig Elders Andrews and Segura probably saw while shoveling dirt.
Elder Segura's blood-drool stained pillow--remember the wisdom teeth story?
