July 20, 2015

This week we got to see Heavenly Father answer a few of our prayers.  One day we had asked for at least 4 lessons in one day, as it is difficult to have lessons in our area.  This day we walked to one of the little towns, looking for some investigators that weren’t home.  As we finished writing a note to leave on their door and to let them know that we had been looking for them, it began to rain.  We had just decided to look for a reference before heading back to town where we live when the rain got worse and we were still in this little town about 30 minutes from home.  We both had the feeling that the Lord was going to use this rain to help us get in a door.  While getting drenched, we passed an older woman with her granddaughter waiting out the rain on a little bit of dry ground.  We stopped to ask if she knew the reference and she didn’t but after a few minutes of talking to her, she began to feel bad for us because we were soaked.  She then invited us to her house and we listened to her express her problems and concerns that she had within her family.  We received the opportunity to testify of the power of our Savior and of God’s intentions for our families.  We will be having an appointment this week and we pray that the Lord led us to her and softened her heart to let u sin because she is prepared to receive the gospel message.

This week was pretty crazy.  We had our first interviews with President and it was nice to get to know him.  He asked about what was my greatest challenge in the mission and how was I able to overcome it and how would I recommend that someone else overcome it.  He also asked for my testimony of the Savior and his atonement.  It was good, to be honest.  I still miss President Christensen but I know that President Nelson is here at this time for a reason and that although the adjustment has been  rough for him and his wife, he will do amazing things in this mission.

We’ve been working a lot with Mayra and Chay and we are really hoping that they will accept a baptismal date this coming week.  They have finally accepted that they need to be baptized but now they want to wait for a year!  We are working on them J  They are amazing, they learn so fast and are almost members seeing as how they go every week to church and participate in all of the activities and not to mention that Chay wants to fast this week!  I’m so excited to have this opportunity to watch God work again personally with His children.  It’s one of those experiences when we truly fulfill our purpose and only show up to answer questions and assure them that what they are doing is the best for their family and God does the rest.  I really want to see them baptized before I end my mission and if Heavenly Father is willing I just might!!!
