We also have been teaching Bety`s daughter, Larisa (10 years old) these past couple of weeks and she was able to join the church too this week. Bety is the lady that we baptized last week and her family is changing alot with these decions to joing the church that they are all making. We are teaching Bety`s mom, she really likes to drink coffee but she is starting to drink less and so I think she will be able to joing the church this week as well. I cant even tell you guys how fun and neat it is to teach families because when one person sets the example, the others see the change and the hapiness that the person has and they start to want it too. The gospel is great, isnt it??
We saw more miracles sunday moring as we went to church. We were waiting for a good amount but we passed by for one and she came with us but when we got there none of our other investigators had shown up. So we called one who is named Abdiel (13 yrs old) who has a baptism date for this week and is really really cool, he is really smart and learns fast. I called him and he sounded like he had just gotten up and said that he wasnt going to make it but I told him that we were going to be waiting for him in the church. Then we called Jenifer, she is 15 years old and we found her along with her sister Diana, they are daughters of inactive members and we are hoping that the daugters can joing the church and the parents can start coming again. But she had gotten up late too and said that she had a ton of homework but I told her that if she came Heavenly Father would bless her a ton in school and that she would have time to do everything, so she said, "Alright, Ill get ready and ill be there in like 10 minutes". And then after she showed up Abdiel sent us a text and said that he was coming too, and showed up like 5 minutes later, it was great!!
We have so much work here right now and we are really being soooo blessed! The picture of my shirt is when I ripped it on a piece of barbed wire...should have torn my arm up really good but didnt pass through the sleeve of my garment :) And the other picutres are from the baptism and the wedding! Fun week!!
I love you all more than you can know and hope everything is going good!! Careful in all that crazy weather!!
