It was a good week for Elder Hazelgren. They had three baptisms, painted a home & climbed a mountain!
One of the baptisms was a guy named Balmore. He used to be an atheist and was part of the big gang in El Salvador called MS13. The missionaries had been working with him for about a year and each time they met, he tried to argue with him. Dallin and his companion "dropped" him, meaning they weren't going to teach him anymore if he wasn't willing to listen to what they had to say. They found him drunk about three weeks ago and he said when they "dropped" him, his life fell apart and that he was now willing to listen. He committed to baptism and his daughter Lesly also got baptized.
Another baptism was Veronica. She had been praying to see what she should do with her life. Dallin happened to knock on her gate for help looking for someone else. He said she was part of a large church there and the members of that church are hard to convert. She is now a great influence to her family, including her husband who could possibly get baptized.
July 23rd also marks Dallin's ONE YEAR! We are so proud of him and love hearing of his experiences.
