Another great week!! I've been out for 5 months and time is flying by!! ): The work here finally started moving forward again and we had a lot of success with the goals we set this week! We had a lesson with Hermano Martinez this week and he prayed out loud with us for the first time!!! His wife wasn't with us, and that's why he did it. He has a lot of pride and is afraid to show his wife that he knows it is all true, but we are working on that (: Then we saw him again later this week and he told us, "You know, I was thinking. What have I got to lose by being baptized and married in the temple? They are good things and will help me become closer to God." That was his hint to his wife that he wants to be baptized, haha he is so funny. But he is progressing so much and went to a stake activity on Saturday then to church on Sunday!! They drove us to the Saturday activity and he was so worried that we wouldn't get back to the house on time and didn't want us to get in trouble so there may or may have not been one time he sped on the freeway to get around a slow car and went 90 MPH.....haha maybe I shouldn't have told Mom this (: But he is a crazy 60 year old man and I love him!!
We are also teaching another hermano whose wife is the Young Women's leader and his stepson is Jose (the one going on his mission). He came to church yesterday too!! Okay, one more awesome miracle we saw this week! There is a single mom in the ward who has been praying so hard to find people for us to teach. One night she remembered there was a less active in our area whose husband isn't a member, but she couldn't remember her name. She was praying so hard to remember her name and then went to Walgreen's and found the lady! It was amazing and she called us, crying, to tell us to go over and visit them. So a lot of miracles happened this week to help us remember to never lose faith and continue to work hard. We will have a lot of new investigators this next week and are so excited to be teaching more again! (: Prayer is so real and we can literally ask our Heavenly Father anything, and He will always answer us.My scripture theme for this week is Mosiah 28:3 "Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thought that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble." Keep being good missionaries and help the Lord find His lost sheep. They are out there and we can help them! I love you and hope you have an amazing week!! Keep smiling<3
