Wow, we´ve had another super busy week. Almost every hour of every day we have appointments with people. We are teaching like crazy!! It is amazing!
Last week (the 23rd of October) Cristhian Figueroa was baptized, and the 24th he received the Holy Ghost. Then, on Tuesday we had an appointment with him. But something had changed... everything had changed. Both temporally and spiritually, Cristhian was a different person. Elder Rosales and I both felt it. There was a light in his countenance that didn´t exist before. We could tell that he had really ´received´ the Holy Ghost. It surprised me, because never in my mission had a seen such a dramatic and obvious effect. This work is real!! I know it, and I know that we are here to change lives. Not only to touch them, but to change them. That is what the gospel does!! I mighty change of heart...
I love it!!
I love it!!
We are also working with many other people and helping them prepare for baptism. We are working with Danny, a young man with many desires to learn and grow in the gospel. He reads every chapter we leave him in the Book of Mormon, and always has great questions. He has a baptismal date for the 20th of September. We are also working with two families, one of which is ready to be baptized. The only thing that lacks is that they be married. They almost have all of the paperwork to be married. God is helping us. We are feeling his hand in our work.
The work goes forward with strength! The Lord is Hastening his work!
