The weather is warming up in the 40s! This last week we went to leadership conference and we were trained by President Taggart's son how to contact effectively. He is number one at Vivint in selling alarms in the whole company and gave us so many good tips.
That same night we went out contacting using the strategy we learned by pushing back rejection and talking with confidence and enthusiasm and we set 2 return appointment for the next day! It really works!
Saturday we received a call from a member that we visited a couple days ago and said that her 10 year grandson would like to be baptized. He just arrived from the Dominican Republic. We had our first lesson with him on the restoration. Yao understood it very well for a young boy. He is excited to be baptized and have set a baptism date of April 5th! We are excited for him!
Marciela: She is a less active but on her way to full activity. One thing that helped her come back to activity is the relief society asking if she could help them for their upcoming pioneer play and show. She is really into theater and has been helping them every since. She loves it! Right now we are helping her be consistent on her scripture study.
Miriam: She is still working on Sundays but is praying and reading her scriptures. She loves us a lot and never wants us to leave her house. She makes us so much good food and is so loving. She really takes care of us and makes sure we are fed and happy. She is great!
Chavez Family: They came to church again with all her 7 kids! 2 weeks in a row! I am so proud of them! With her crazy divorce she has decided to turn to the church for help and start trusting in the Lord. We are going to visit her this week!
Mierna: She is still listening to the mormon channel and loves it. We are trying to get her to listen to the scriptures. She looks over the pamphlets and prays but is really hard to get her to church. We are going to help her on that this week.
Elder Johnson is doing great! He is improving his Spanish little by little and is a good example of diligence. Here in West New York the members feed us so much! So, I think I gain and then lose weight as I walk! The food here is so good! I love it.
I love you all dearly! I am grateful to be a representative of the Lord and know he guides us every moment. I have gained a great love for the New Testament! I love the miracles and the stories the apostles report and have felt the spirit so strongly! Love you all!
|Miriam from Peru, great faith!!|
