Happy Halloween! and Day of the Dead!
This week was even better than the week before! We were able to meet more members during the week and go out teaching with them. Our investigators are starting to get proper "hermanamiento". We had a great lesson with a family that we are teaching. It’s the same family that I was writing about last week. Betty is the mom and Brenda, Luis and Diana are her kids. We went with the president of young women’s this week and she was able to share her conversion story with the family. The one bad thing that happened is that they weren’t able to come to church this week...but we passed by last night and they are very committed to making this next Sunday! Luis and Brenda accepted the baptismal invitation last night as well. We were finally able to teach them the lesson of the restoration and they had a lot of great questions for us! We feel like they all have a sincere desire to learn. Betty is still excited for her baptism!
Another miracle that happened this week was finding a new investigator that lives with a lot of members! Michelle is 8 years old, but is really excited to learn more about the church. Her parents aren’t members, but they seem like they are nice people. Michelle lives with 3 young women that are members so it should help her a lot in the teaching. The 3 members took her to church yesterday!
We are still working hard to baptize and have our focus on families. We know that as we baptize families they will stay active in the church! It’s going to be a great month!
I am very grateful to be here on the mission. The church really is true! Everyday my testimony grows more and more and I feel the spirit in the lessons we teach and during our study time. Ive been reading a little about the church history and it is really amazing how much the saints were persecuted in the early years of the church. They were so strong to stand up for what they believed in. We too must have courage as they did and preach the gospel to everyone! I’ll keep sharing the gospel till I die! and then I’ll keep preaching in the spirit world! It really is a glorious work that we are a part of!
