We then had an appointment with a man named R. who was baptized 3 months ago. We went but he wasn’t home. So we just decided to go visit some other members. We get to a members house and knock on the door and Ruben is there! With his cousin C. who is not a member. We taught him and also committed him to be baptized on July 2 as well. He said yes! We are very happy for the success that we have been blessed with.
Elder Dominguez and I have been praying and fasting for a long time to find new people to teach and we have been rewarded. I understand the words of Alma in chapter 26:27
"Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success."

I know that the Lord is truly mindful of all of his children. My experience as a missionary is definitely not unique. There are 18-20 y/o kids doing this all around the world (including my best friend Brig who just got called to California Oakland/San Francisco Mission!!!!) This is the Lord’s work not ours!
