So this week we were doing transfers for half the week, and sick for
the other half... So it was a little rough.
BUT we did teach Yessica and Mari! I don't know if I have mentioned
them, but they are the coolest. Yessica is a young 15 yr. old girl
that we kept running into a couple times and we would have these
really cool gospel conversations. Well eventually we saw her and her
sister Mari outside helping their neighbor move in to their apartment
complex so we went and helped out for a little bit. After we got their
neighbors moved in, we ended up sitting outside and having the coolest
first lesson ever! That was a couple weeks ago, but this week we had
another lesson with them and it was so good! Mari is 20 and was
baptized when she was 8 but hasn't been active her whole life. Yessica
is 15 and was never baptized. Their mother lives in Las Vegas and came
up and went to church with them on Sunday!! It was beautiful. She
cried sitting there with her family and the girls loved church.
We also got to meet with our Brazilian investigator named Carlos! We
ran into Carlos when I was on exchanges in Pioneer Park. He and
another man were cutting down a tree across the street, so we went to
see if we could help. They said we could but they wanted to pay us and
we tried to tell them no haha. That was an awesome conversation. Later
that week the Pioneer Park elders went and did service for them and
found out one of them, Carlos, actually lived in our area! In the Book
of Mormon, we read of a prophecy, that the descendants of the
Lamanites will receive the gospel, and we saw that come true last
night. He listened, he felt the spirit and committed to act. He is
going to read the Book of Mormon, and he is SO excited that there is a
modern day prophet! His son is also very perceptive to the spirit and
amazed us all with his knowledge and testimony of Jesus Christ.
Those are the craziest events of the week! We have been very sick and
very tired, but getting better! Hopefully...
Love you all!
Temple Tuesday! Not a thing... but it was this week!
This reminds me of The Best Two Years, and they are AMAZING.
