A Great Week of Missionary Work

Wow, This week was great!! I will just share one story.

On Friday we had a terrible day (returned missionaries will understand. One of those days when EVERY set appointment falls through). We were in the last 1/2 hour of work, and my companion wanted to just go to dinner and give up for the day. I told him that we should do something... even if it is just knocking on a door. So we thought, and decided to visit a Less-Active family. We visited them and shared a small message with them, and then asked them to think of somebody to invite to meet with us. We told them that we would come back the next day (Saturday), and go visit the reference with them.

On Saturday, we went back and Sister Rosa said: "Oh no Elders, I didn`t talk to anybody.... oh wait, come in. my cousin is here." We entered the house, and started talking to them. We gave her sick baby a blessing, and taught her about priesthood power. She then promised us that she would come to church the next day (Sunday) and that she would like to hear more of the message. We gave her a pamphlet of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sunday: Vilma (the cousin of Rosa) came to church!!!! We went to the house again at night, and she asked us an incredible question. she asked: "Elders, How long would I have to prepare to be able to be baptized in the church?" SHE IS SO PREPARED!!! She needs to get married, but next week we are going to talk to her husband. Hopefully we will have a wedding and some baptisms soon.

I am so thankful for the people that are prepared to receive the gospel. God really is preparing people all around us. Share the Gospel!!
