Week 97

We found a new family a few weeks ago.  We first found the wife, while looking for their neighbors.  We then took advantage of the opportunity and contacted her.  We shared a small message with her while on her porch and set up a date to return when her family would be present.  We returned and taught the family about the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  The husband liked the message and wants his family to be blessed.  Although they had previously attended to other churches, their desire to find the best for their family was more important than maintaining their traditions and customs.  We visited them the next week with the second counselor from the Bishopric.  He invited them to church.  The entire family went to church. They enjoyed it a lot and expressed their desire to continue and to be baptized. We had a ward service project.  It's nice to see that this family is looking to do and follow the right.

Week 96

A new family of investigators went to church on Sunday.  They even gave us a ride home.  I went with a joven to pick up some investigators, but they decided they 'couldn't' go.  Sad. There were 6 investigators from our area in the reunión sacramental, which was awesome.

Week 95

We met with a lot of people this week.  Unfortunately, only one person accepted our invitation for another lesson.  We continue to pray to be led to those who are ready to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We know how much the gospel helps to change the lives of these sweet people.

Week 94

This week was good.  We were able to attend a wonderful baptism.  We are continuing to look for new people to teach.
