So…. It was a great week!
I would actually have to say that, numbers wise, this was the most successful week of my mission until now! We have some incredible people that we found this week, taught, put a baptismal date, and came to church!
Elias and Ivana are the parents of a tiny little family that we are now teaching. We committed a family in our ward to invite their neighbors to a Family home evening and they brought those two. They now both have testimonies that the book of mormon is the word of God, the restoration, and that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. They went to church and are progressing incredibly! They aren’t married yet but we´re working on it haha!
Fernando Marino is the cousin of one of the stud YSA´s named Jorge and is 15. Jorge taught him about the book of mormon, bore his testimony, and read the book with Fernando for like 3 hours on Friday night. We go to lunch on Saturday with Jorge, he tells us that he shared with Fernando, and that he was going to come to lunch to get to know us and teach a lesson. We were pleasantly surprised haha! He is a huge stud! We taught him the restoration and set a baptismal date that day and then he promptly went to church with us yesterday! He’s on track to get baptized the 20th!
Brisa Barrera is the little sister of a member in our ward.She’s 13 and she lived with her dad and she just recently came here and saw her sister Jóse (I know weird name for a girl right? Its basically like Josie) was super happy and everything. We met her and like 15 seconds into the conversation she just says that she wants to be baptized! We taught the restoration and gave her a BOM to read. She read about it, prayed and felt that it was true and that this is the only true church. She’s awesome!
We also have a family of 4 all with baptismal dates for the 27th that are super awesome but there isn’t time to tell you more. haha! They are the Familia Alemán!
Basically it was a good week.
I love the Book of Mormon! It can take away any doubt and answer any question and it is the greatest and most powerful tool in the conversion process!
I love you all and I love this work!
