Week 59 - Helping with English & The Book of Mormon Brings Peace!

September 26, 2016

Oye Familia!!!

This week was crazy! To say the least! Our baptism that was set for this Saturday got canceled because out of nowhere, he moved. But great ending to the story is that S. informed his son, who is a member, that he is going to be baptized and his son is flying him to Lima so he can baptize him there! I'm just so happy he is getting baptized because he is so converted!

We were walking down the street after our appointments fell through yesterday and I felt impressed to knock on a door. A young 18 year-old girl opened, and after talking, she invited us in to visit with her. She had been passing through so much, just from the look on her face. We shared a message of our divine nature and how we lived with God before this earth. We gave her a Book of Mormon, taught her how to pray, and when we left, there was literally a new light in her eyes! I love what the Gospel can do if we are willing to do God's will. 

The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints during General Conference.
M., one of our fechas (investigators) came to the General Women's conference! She absolutely loved it and I remembered a little of my family as I helped distracted a 6 year-old coloring the whole time :)  We told her to be early to church on starts at 9, and she came at 8:15!  She can't read very well and we are taking it slow with her, but she wants to change and has already seen the changes in her life! 

Also, last night we went to contact a reference from our primary president. The woman was a little stand offish and said she had to help her son study for his English we offered to help with his English! She opened up to us so much as I practiced saying snake, and rabbit and fish. Missionary work is more than just teaching lessons, its about serving and loving people. 

There are a million things I could write, but there's a little sip of it :) I was reading in Alma 37:8-10 this morning about how through the scriptures thousands of people were converted. I invite all of you to read The Book of Mormon every day! Just a little bit and I promise you your lives will change. You WILL feel of the peace that comes through our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Love you all to the moon and back! Keep smiling!
