Week 35- March 30, 2015
hi everyone! it was a relief to see your email this week. good to know everyone is safe :)
sounds like everyone is doing great. thanks mom and dad for your stories about tithing. no veronica didnt get baptized because she started working all day during the week and they wouldnt give us permission to visit her during studies, so we are still trying to help her progress to baptism. but she will get there :)
jorge is the other man we found and we ended up having a lesson with him and our ward mission leader (a21 year old returned missionary) and it went pretty well. he is praying and reading and wants to come to church but had to work. ive been trying to look for miracles everyday instead of getting depressed about our flaws and so here are the miracles of this week:
friday we were walking down a street and passed a woman on the side sitting down. we greeted her like normal and turned out she was an investigator we had visited last week. we asked how she was and she said mas o menos. so we asked what was wrong. she started crying and told us she had seperated from her husbandbecause they had fought. we gave her a hug and walked her back to her house and she told us all about how he comes home drunk and hits her and breaks things sometimes and we sang for her and talked about the atonement and she said she felt better. it was a miracle t o me that God had put us exactly in that path to find her in that moment and help her when she needed a hug and a couple friends, even if she doesnt know us that well..
we have been teaching two girls, connie and valentina (14 and 8 years old) and the boyfriend of connie who just reciently got interested (other miracle).they are AWESOME but hadnt come to church yet. butmorning we were in the capilla when up drives their mom and dad with valentina. they dropped her off and she assisted all 3 hours! she was always too timid to even talk in the lessons but came to church alone and loved it! that was exciting for us :)
anyway, we have been teaching alot about the Atonement recently for Easter and im so excited for conference!! love and miss you all! happy easter!
