This has been a really successful week. We were able to find a few more people to teach and we found some great potential as well. There are a lot of great people here. We are finding a lot of success in helping them come closer to our Savior. We are working with two great families that I want to tell you about:
The Flores family that we began teaching are doing great. We taught them on Tuesday about Jesus Christ and how he is always stretching out his hand towards us (her being less active and thinks it might be too late). It not only caught her attention, but her non-member husband really liked our lesson. At the end, he asked us the following question, “How has Jesus Christ affected your life?” It gave all three of us a perfect opportunity to testify sincerely to his sincere question. The Spirit was overwhelming, so much that they committed to a church tour the next day. We took them on the tour. They really liked it. They revealed to us then that they started reading the Book of Mormon after our first lesson (without us even committing them to do so) and then they committed to come to church.After the tour, they asked us if we could bless their home. It was a really spiritual experience as well. Then on Sunday, they went to church. We will continue teaching them tomorrow night.
One more family: The Ayala family. Their cousin Jose was baptized in December. The other Elders began teaching them when they were here. We started teaching them where they left off. They are really excited to go to the open house here in a few weeks. We taught them last night about the sealing ordinance and marriage covenant, as well as the baptismal covenant. They are progressing, but don’t quite understand the apostasy quite yet. I am looking forward to them feeding us and us teaching them on Friday!
Love and miss you all!
