Buenas Tardes!

4th of July Celebration - Subway, Rootbeer, Chips, Watermelon

 This week was a great week full of stuff! We were visited by our mission president and learned how to become more consecrated missionaries. We also saw many miracles in our week.

The Mendoza Family - Love them!
As it turns out, the father of the father of a family that just got baptized in another branch is an old investigator of ours! This father has noticed the big change in his son that comes from living the gospel and now he is down once again to listen to us! We called him up Saturday night and he showed up to church by himself Sunday morning! Crazy!

AND, we contacted a lady this week who seemed pretty cool. We set up an appointment, showed up for that appointment, and she wasn't home. We called the number she gave us and it said that the number had been changed. So, we forgot about her.

Family Home Evening Activity

Later on that day, SHE CALLED US from another number. We set up another appointment for Saturday. The problem was that that Saturday we got stuck and had to help another lady, who will be getting baptized this week, to move houses. So, we couldn't go with this lady who I'm talking about. Her name is Maria de Jesus. So, I called her afterwards and told her sorry, and she said "don't worry about it, oh, and I still want to go to church with you all tomorrow. At what time is your church?"

Bus Station

She showed up by herself the next day AND she stayed for the other classes after Sacrament Meeting. We started to talk about the blessings that we had had this last week as a class in Gospel Principles. She shared her blessing of the week and started crying, saying that she just had felt so much darkness in her life, and then 2 young men knocked on her door, and that now she was there in church feeling true peace.

The gospel is true. There is no better feeling than being an instrument in the Lord's hands.

Love you all! Have a great week!
