Well good week....... very good week!!!
Where should I start with yall............
Alright will first ill tell you the good news and then after ill tell yall the good news. (you know its a good week when all you got is good news)
OKay!! so this past week we found such a sweet investigator!!!!
Hes abut 26 and he built his own house because it was cheaper so he could study, we taught him the first lesson and he played guitar for us too and it was sweet.
We taught the first lesson and it went so well, he had a lot of sweet questions and we had a lot of sweet answers and then we asked him to read the book of Mormon, pray and be baptized the 28th. He said yes, yes and yes.
We called him the next day and he had read the first 5 chapters in first Nephi, he told us that if he did get an answer why would he not listen to Heavenly Father and get baptized, If we keep asking and asking in prayer we have to do what the the Lord tells. Well he is a sweet investigator and we just talked to him and we are gonna have a Noche de Hogar with him and this family from the ward tonight! Hope all goes well, I think it will, so that's sweet!
Then wanna hear something way cool as well, Our investigators Maria ines and Paulina, yeah well we had stake conference (Which was way awesome, a lot of awesome speakers.... temple president from santiago, Presidente obeso and a 70, so sweet)
Well after conference they both had their baptism interviews and passed.... they'll be getting baptized This Saturday at 8pm...... IM SO STOKED!!!!! THIS is so awesome, we found them knocking doors like 7-8 weeks ago and now they're getting baptized, how crazy is that!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED! The Lord really blesses those who do his work and do what they're suppose to! Soo stoked and happy!
Well we ate lunch with some members and The mom who is getting baptized came with us to eat cause she was already friends with these members before we even found her, well we asked who she wanted to baptize her and we were so excited and happy to hear when she said she would like the member in our ward to do the baptism, he has helped us a lot and I know it really, really, really means a lot to him and his family. We were very happy to have that happen!
Yall, no lie I am so happy, I love the mission and I love meeting people who have literally never heard abut this gospel before and when they do, they do everything they're suppose to. This gosple changes lives, it is changing these peoples lives I am just meeting and it is changing mine everyday. I have never felt so much joy, I love it. I honestly love how I can be an instrument in the hands of the Lord!
I love yall and ill talk to yall this sunday (MOTHERS DAY WOOHOOOO)
