It´s a great time to be here in my area. We have a great family that we are working with, and the members are helping us quite a bit as well. It was a great week.
Last Monday we were able to visit Hermano Cristofer and his wife, Hermana Rosa. It was great to get to visit with them a little bit. They are both members of the church. Hermana Rosa got baptised just a few months ago. We had invited them to read Alma 7 a few days before the visit and we got to talk to them about it a little bit with them. It was so great to see all that they had learned and applied in their lives as they had read it. It is always so awesome to see all that people can learn and gain as they put their faith into action.
This week one of my very favorite lessons was a lesson with one of our converts, Hermana Eva and her family. We are working with her husband and her kids right now. Her husband, hermano Percy, is very nice, but he hadn´t been progressing very much yet. We had a member with us this night and he was able to share an experience from his life and he was really able to catch the attention of hermano Percy. Then we were able to read a few scriptures from the Book of Mormon with him and it was a great experience. It was awesome to see that he had opened up a little bit more, and I know that he was able to feel the spirit in the lesson. When we left their house that night we were pretty happy.
Hermana Fany our other investigator is really progressing quite well and we were able to listen to Elder Costa´s talk from the conference with her this week. That talk is so powerful. I think it helped her quite a bit too. She is diligently searching and learning more about the gospel. We are very blessed to be teaching great people.
One of my favorite experiences this last week was with Hermana Eva´s dad. He also lives in our area and we got to talk to him again this past week. He is always so greatful for our visits and always just asks for us to be patient with him as he strives to learn the gospel. He has seen how it has helped his daughter and is very willing to learn it and live it himself. I know that this is the work of the Lord and as instruments we need to always love and be patient with those people around us.
I hope you all have a great week!
