Well, my companions and I had a fabulous week, this week. We found soo many people ready to hear the Gospel! It was soo awesome!! The funny thing is, is that we all found them all in one day! It was like one after the other. It was BOMB!
Friday was when all the magic happened. 😀 We had a lesson with a less active member. The father and the daughter are not members. So we talked to the daughter about the lessons and invited her to baptism and she accepted! She looks the most promising out of the people we found. The next one were two guys. 21 and 23 years old. Cool and legit people. We invited both to baptism too and one accepted. He had the same questions as Joseph Smith with “why are there soo many religions?” “if there is only one God…should there be only one church?”…a lot of people have those questions. But yeah, he’s gold.
We were walking down this street close to our house and we meet this older couple. They’re from El Salvador. They want to learn English so we take down their information and everything. They’re a cute couple. So we still have some time and then I look at my planner and I see a referral and it was on the same street that we are on and so we go. We found this woman (Hispanic) telling us she’s been waiting for the missionaries to come by! She been talking to the English Elders and she was really excited that we were Spanish missionaries because her boyfriend/future husband doesn’t speak English. So we are teaching her family on tuesdays and thursdays. They are also getting married! So after the wedding they are getting baptized! She’s really soo BOMB!
I can honestly say that we are having this success because of our obedience. We realized that missionaries are set apart from the world and sometimes we can put ourselves back into the world by talking about things not really centered on Christ. So we have a thing that only Christ centered things that we talk about, listen to and hear. And we realized that we are more happier because of our obedience. I love it!
I know that Jesus is the Christ. He watches over everyone of us closely. He notices the fall of every sparrow. He’s there and He lives!
The church is true! I LOVE you all!! Stay clean,
