Aldo's in.....Cali?

This week has been really great! We had Zone Conference and just normal stuff, but....
MIRACLES ARE REAL. So last Monday Night we found out Aldo was in California! He went there randomly and he didn't know when he was going to come back. He said at the latest Friday. Which is a problem when he needs to be baptized; and he still wanted to be! So on Thursday we asked him all the interview questions over the phone and then set his interview for kinda Friday night. He called us at 8:30 on Friday and said, I'm in Pasco! He still had to work in the morning, but he said he would be home by 3:30, so we set his interview for 4pmand his baptism at 7. (note planning a baptism in less then 24 hrs is hard)
Then Saturday Morning we went to Connel for a baptism of one of Hermana Wade's old investigators. We came back and had correlation andtried to get into the Family History Center, but they changed the locks. We had to go to a member's house to make the programs and print everything. Then we had a lesson with Rosa. She is kinda progressing, but not much. She's reading but doesn't really want to do much more than that. It was 3:55 so we drove to Aldo's apartment to make sure he was ready to go! BUT HE WASN'T HOME AND HIS PHONE WAS GOING STRAIGHT TO VOICE MAIL. ahhhhhhh. Hermano Gomez (WML)  showed up to give him a ride to the church, but since we couldn't get a hold of him we thought all was lost. We then went and visited a family with Hno Gomez. We kept calling Aldo, but he still wasn't answering! We said like 3 prayers and decided that we need to act in faith so that we could receive a miricle. (Because You receive a blessing after the trial of your faith!) So we got out of the car and went and knocked on one door, talked to them, and they once we started walking away, ALDO CALLED US. PRAYER WORKS MY FRIENDS ACTS OF FAITH ARE REAL. Aldo got stuck at work, but he would be home by 5. We set a interview up at 6. We rushed to the church to start filling the font. Aldo and the Elders came to church by 6:25 and then the interview started and Hermana Wade and I went to go set up the baptism. By 7:10 the room was full of members sand Aldo and Elder Thompson were still in the interview! Do you know how stressful it is to be sitting in a room waiting for a baptism and not knowing if it is actually going to happen?! Very! But then at 7:30, they came out and Elder Thompson gave us the thumbs up and I don't think I have ever been so relived. Then.....ALDO WAS BAPTIZED. A day of miracles my friends. A crazy day! But so rewarding. Then on Sunday after church, Aldo was able to talk to his family in Mexico! He told them about his baptism and he is so excited to share the gospel with them. Isn't the gospel great?!
The Church is true. Christ lives. Long week, but many blessings!:)
