On the mission we are always taught to accept Gods will over our own. That is something that has been forced into my mind this past week. So we were supposed to have a baptism this past week with Jorge Mafla. He decided to go another way which makes me sad, but the Spirit has confirmed to me that he will be baptized!... I just don't know when! But that's all tranquilo! Let's take a look at the week!

I don't know when he will be baptized but I know he will!

Tuesday: Bout time I get back to those monthly trainings from President! We were taught by President and it was glorious. 

Wednesday: We were visiting with Jorge preparing him for his baptism:(

Thursday: Lomeli planned a baseball ward activity. It was pretty fun and we were able to find some new investigators from it.
Divisions: Elder Caballero(ZL) and I

Friday: I had divisions with my Zone Leader, Elder Caballero. They were 24 hour divisions so it was the second time in my whole mission where I had 24 hour divisions. It basically was just a sleepover!

Saturday: Heading over to Jorge and hearing the news....

Sunday: Found two new investigators to teach and they have baptismal dates for the 22nd of August! I go the chills this day. My body has been shivering ever since and I have a fever.

Monday: The nurse made me get a fecies sample and I proved positive with a parasite also....Ewwww

So as I was saying the Lord works in mysterious ways! At times we think that our way is the best way. That some guy should just get baptized that day, or my mom should still be having two new babies, but I testify that the Lord is in control here. He knows what He is doing! I love my Savior Jesus Christ! I love his Atonement. I know that He knows how each one of us feels through tough times. I testify that the Lord's ways are higher than our ways! I love the Plan of Salvation and know that it's sole purpose is to give eternal life to man. We should each remember why we pass difficult times. It is so that we can learn and progress in all things! This I share in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

The will of God
This video should remind us a couple things!

I love you all but especially my family!

With love, 
Elder Kimball
