Birthday week/transfers

Hello all! First of all, thank you for the birthday wishes! 21 seems a whole lot older than 20, and well, I feel like I am well on my way to adulthood. Weird, but it is what it is. Time is flying by! 

This week was transfers, and i will be here with Elder Coello another transfer in Alto Misit. I am super happy, because we are working really well together and have set ourselves up for a ton of success here in september. We had a baptism last Saturday, Erika, and she was super happy to be baptized. Unfortunately, her mom had to go to the hosptial yesterday morning and she couldnt go to church, so I guess she´ll be confirmed next Sunday. Our investigators are progressing pretty well, we have a few possible baptisms for the first week of September, and if things go well, we could have between 5 to 10 baptisms this coming month. Lelia Chac√≥n is one of investigators. She is in her 50s and her son is a member of the church. She has been investigating the church for a lot of time now, but recently has been reading the Book of Mormon and has decided to get baptized. The only problem is that she wants to wait until her son gets out of drug rehab and is worthy to baptize her. So some prayers for her would be appreciated! 

Bishop Stevenson (presiding bishop of the church) will be here on Friday to talk to us and then we´ll have a leadership conference that night and Saturday morning. Super excited for that! Other than that, not a lot to report, just happily working in the vineyard of the Lord!

Love,

Elder Matheson
