We put a baptismal goal as a zone for February and March. Rut Roh. On Friday we went out to San Jose de Gracia to search 2 referrals from the church, only to leave empty handed. But we discovered a hidden mystic lake with the famous Cristo roto there, so at least it wasn't in vain. The other bad news is that José didn't make it out to church this week so we'll have to postpone his baptism. He got a new job this week unloading chickens on all the farms here in Aguascalientes, and they call him like 5 hours before and tell him if he has to work or not, so we are hoping he can find a solution to always make it to church. But everything's going great here in Pabellon. The front room in the house of prayer is bursting, and we will soon be opening the curtains in back.
So this week I've been thinking about the importance of living a Christ centered life. Sometimes we get distracted by other nonsense like our school or our job, or some hobby, and without us even noticing, that suddenly becomes the center of our lives. I think the best solucion to avoid that is to forget ourselves in the service of our God and our fellow men, just like Christ did. Remember "lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, for where your treasure is there will your heart be also. " May Christ always be our treasure.
