It was great to see you all! Well, like I said yesterday we had a great week with 4 new investigators and Alex and Andrea on date for baptism. We found our new investigators by using the area book. We see why it is important to update the area book.
Alex: He comes to the lessons always with questions about the Book of Mormon. He has been reading and he has liked it. Yesterday we invited him to be baptized when he knew when the BOM is true on May 31st. He said yes and we wrote down his baptismal date with three goals to get there. It was a great lesson and the spirit was strong.
Andrea: We are going to meet with her more regularly. Like I said yesterday she wants to be a better person so she can be a good example for her baby. We commited her read the the first chapter of the BOM. We invited her to be baptized when she knew these things are true on the 31st of May. We are excited for her.
We found this awesome Dominican guy name Reyes through the area book. He said that we are always welcomed to his home to share the word of God. We presented the restoration to him and told us he like what he heard and is going to read the pamphlet. He asked when we could come back. Super cool guy.
We also found this other Dominican couple Maria and Fransisco by using the area book. They are very kind and let us in right away. We also shared the restoration with her but shared that she feels that all churches lead to God. We told that in Ephesians in the Bible that the Lord talks about one baptism, one Lord and one faith and that the only way to know if the church is true is throught the BOM. We invited them to pray about our message.
We also found a Cuban couple name Denilo and Juana. They recently migrated from Cuba and have interest to listen to our message. They are in the 70s and love painting. They liked the pictures on the pamphlets. We taught them the restoration as well in 5 minutes. We invited them read the pamphlet and we have a return appointment next week.
We have been teaching Miriam (less active) and helping her get back to church. She is from Peru. She came to the Mother's day party on Saturday with her friend, we helped them move furniture the day before. She is a non member and wants to learn more about the church! We have an appointment with her this week!
The mission is going by way too fast! I feel so blessed by the Lord. I know he loves and knows us individually. I love so much Mom, Dad, Tanner and Mckay immensely! "
"Fear not little flock for I have overcome the world." I Love this scripture.
