Well this week was FULL of fun and new families!
Josepha and Danillo
So we had stopped by their house a few weeks back, and the wife really loved our message. She said her husband had gotten a folleto (pamphlet) from the Elders in the street, and really liked it, but hadn´t seen them again since. They were very accepting of our message, and she is starting to work on her divorce so she can get married to Danillo. The second lesson was just with Josepha and she explained all of her problems. Basically she just has a lot of problems with Danillo, but in our third lesson with her, she said that after our lesson with them, Danillo talked to her and really liked what we taught and thinks it is time to change. She was so thankful for our visit, and really wants to work towards baptism!
Jaime and Edwardo
This family lives just down the road from Josepha and Danillo! Which is like a 40min walk from our house.. :)
BUT they are awesome! Our first lesson with them went so well! The father just ate up everything we said, and he really understood what we were teaching. They accepted baptism for the ! We do need to get them married... Jaime is a little reluctant, even though they have been together for 17 years already! We taught about the Plan of Salvation yesterday, and they loved it! We will see if that is enough to encourage them to get married! The wife was funny though, she said to her husband ¨now you understand that if you get baptized you are going to be a Mormon¨ and he goes ¨um, yes, I understand that!¨
We still go over to Rosadellias house every day to help her read. However last night the power was out so we talked about temples. She told us that her husband passed away. She really liked hearing that they could be together again, and for forever.
Vilma is getting baptized next week! And her grand kids are still working on their baptismal date.
We had interviews with the president this week! And we got fans and pans! We are living a luxurious life now! Not even joking, it is swell!
So we have figured out how to tell when it is going to rain.. The locals clued us in :) So basically when it is suuuuuper hot and you don't think you can survive, it rains! And I was thinking about it, and that is so much like life! So many times we will be right on the edge of giving up, or giving in, and all we have to do is endure just a minute longer. God is always there, and he WILL bless us, we just have to push through the hard times! He knows we can do it! He didn't put us on this Earth to fail.
Ponderizing: Jacob . This reminded me of that conference talk that said "Reach up, not across." We need all the wisdom and help that we can get from our loving father in heaven!
Love you all!!! Happy Thanksgiving!
