May 23 Post

This week went really well! We were able to have a lot of members accompany us in this week! We found some good new investigators. Miguel and Nacho are still going well for their baptismal dates. Laura should be getting baptized this Saturday! She has been reading a lot of the Book of Mormon and is really excited to finish the book. Her little daughter Dana always reads the book with her and reminds her to read it when she forgets to. Laura told us that everyday Dana says, "Puedes leerme mi libro de Cristo?". When i heard that this little girl, that is only 2 years old, recognized that the book is about Christ it helped grow my testimony of the promise made in the Introduction of the Book of Mormon, "Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world...". My companion and i have been talking a lot about the importance the Book of Mormon. My companion said that it is like water for us now. If we don’t read it every day we just can’t do our work effectively!

Today I read in 3 Nephi 11 and felt grateful for the example Christ gave us in this chapter of ministering to everyone one by one. We too need to minister to the people around us one by one. I am going to try harder to help the members of the zone individually.

When I was on intercambios with the elders in Central we had an amazing spiritual experience. We were walking down in the streets for hours and couldn’t seem to contact or teach any people that were from their area! Most of the people lived in other places. When the day was coming to an end I kept praying to God so that we could find a new investigator that lived in their area. Sure enough, just like he always does, God answered my prayer. We were about to get to the church to do an activity there and I felt a strong impression to contact this one joven sitting down. He turned out to be really receptive! He accepted the baptismal invitation and we committed him to come to church that Sunday. Turns out his Grandparents are members of our church! His name is Ezequiel Josue and he was pretty proud of the biblical meaning behind his names. The best thing of all was that he lives a couple blocks away from the church! I am so grateful for the miracles God gives to us throughout each day.

Have a great week everyone!
