This week was a great week here in Chimbote. We were super busy all week which was great. We also have gotten to find a help a ton of people who are very willing to learn and change.
Our Investigator Hermana Eva got baptized this week. A lot of things happened this week, but she stayed firm and made the decision to get baptized this last Saturday. We were able to visit her every day this last week, and it was so awesome to see how willing she was to do the Lord´s will and keep his commandments. She has developed a super strong testimony of the atonement, and it has been awesome to see. After her baptism two of her kids told her that they want to get baptised now. Her example is going to make a big difference for her family.
This past week we also got to work with her husband a little bit as well. He wants to make changes in his life to be able to help his family and we are grateful for the chance we have to help him. I know that through the principles and ordinances of the gospel he can reach his goal.
We also got to know a new investigator this week, Hermano Justo. He has had a rough past, but he is very humble and willing to learn and make changes in his life as well. We taught him about the restoration and he told us ¨I will pray to know if its true, but I feel that it is true right now.¨ He came to church yesterday and had a great time. It was awesome to see.
My companion and I are teaching a young lady named Haydee. She had learned a lot before I got to this area and we are working on helping her. She is a member´s friend. We got to teach her a little bit about the commandments this week and as we were teaching her and studying these commandments we were able to understand that our obedience to these commandments is what helps us to be good examples and a light to those around us.
I am grateful for the restored gospel and for the chance to share it with those around me. I know that thanks to the atonement we can change and become strengthened.
