Wednesday we had an awesome lesson with Maria and Elsie. Maria is the one that we found last Saturday and Elsie is her 17 year old daughter. We taught them about the Book of Mormon. It was an awesome lesson cause, we taught it in the house of a family that got baptized about 8 months ago. The spirit was really strong and I felt as if it was a good lesson.
Thursday we did divisions with Carolingia! I stayed in my area with Elder Clyde. We taught some solid lessons. We taught the Caal Family in the house of the Diaz Family. It was a good lessons we talked about 1 Nephi 3 and how Nephi was always obedient to the commandments of God. We then invited Hermana Flory to Church! We have been inviting her and trying to help her for weeks. Hermana Emelia bore her testimony about how going to Church has helped her out in her life. I think it was her testimony that helped out the most. It was an awesome lesson.
Friday we did divisions again so that they could do the interview of Amy. I went to the Zone Leaders area with Elder Lopez. We had a pretty good day. We left with a member who was baptized by a missionary named Nic White about 30 years ago. Weird right?! I was baffled! We also left with a member who was the kid of my former classmate Peter West on his mission in Mexico. Cool right? What a small world.
Saturday we ended divisions and went back to the Church to fill up the baptismal font. The hose we usually use to make it fill up faster was locked in a room that we didn't have a key to. We filled up buckets and carried them to try to fill it up faster. One spilled all over my leg so that wasn't cool. The baptism was awesome.
Sunday we passed by and everyone said they couldn't go. We got there and Flory was there!!! It was awesome. I`m so grateful that Emelia's testimony helped her out and she could come to Church for the first time. During sacrament I was praying and I prayed that someone would give us a good reference that could get baptised soon. At the end of the meeting a man that isn't from our ward, but was visiting came up and introduced us to his niece. She lives right by the Church and has been reading the Book of Mormon and doing her personal progress. We have an appointment this week so hopefully it goes well. We also taught the Caal Family about the Word of Wisdom and they accepted it. The Church is true! I love you guys!
