It was a good week overall. It started out pretty hard. Once again we are having to leave investigators who aren't progressing and we are left without people to visit. At the beginning of the week we were walking in circles but we started praying hard to find new people and to have references from members and then we got off our knees and started hitting doors. Well, we have had success. I know every day the Lord is preparing people for us to teach and that it is our responsibility to find the elect, those whose hearts have been prepared to receive the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
We had a few cool experiences this week. One of them was with Marco and Jessica. On Saturday we prepared to teach them the Word of Wisdom and in the morning we prayed and planned. We prayed that Marco would accept it. We were a little nervous cuz we knew that he drinks and that he's obsessed with his Colombian cafe hah. Well when we got to their house, we taught the lesson and the spirit was felt. To our surprise, Jessica told us about how alcohol has caused lots of problems in their home and how they've almost separated cuz of it. How recently Marco has been changing a lot and has stopped drinking, but then she laughed and said but I don't think he will stop drinking his cafe. He loves his cafe. Marco turned to us and almost a little offended he said that if he was able to stop drinking that he could stop drinking cafe. And then he told his wife to throw all the cafe away. Well after the lesson, they pulled out all the stuff they had and asked us what was good and what was bad. It showed us that this fam has the desire to serve the lord.
We taught another lesson on Sunday to a family we have recently found about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We talked about Mother's Day. He expressed to us that his mother had died, but he was super alert when we taught him and he committed to be baptized but without a date. Then he asked us if families are eternal and if it's necessary to be baptized to the enter the Kingdom of God. He asked how he could return to see his mom. Well with great joy in our hearts we were able to explain more about the plan and he loved it. There are lots of people to teach and to bring to this gospel. I love being a missionary and I love all of you. Thanks for the support.
