What a Great Week!!!

So pretty much this week was incredible!!! We saw so many miracles and did work this week. We now have 8 fechas, and had 9 investigators in church, and found 7 new investigators.  And when the little branch saw us come walking in with the family they were shocked and they just kept seeing new faces. We went to pick them up and we were just praying so hard that all 6 of them would come down the steps and out the door. And we even said a mini prayer after we rang the timbre, waiting for them to come out the door. All 6 of them came to church. All 6 of them stayed all three hours. All 6 of them are preparing to be baptized. This is a huge miracle. This work is being hastened all by the hand of the Lord. This family is incredible. 

Everyone kind freaked out and tried to do the heroic thing and just collapse on them, which is good and bad I guess. They were all trying their best, it just all came unexpectedly, and it was pretty funny. But tomorrow we have ward council and I am going to motivate the branch (in a good way) and get them working again. I think seeing this family and all these people in church on Sunday got them excited again for the first time in a while, since the last baptism was in September. But it is just incredible. 

The other fecha is a Spanish man who we found digging through the area book. The only hurdle was he knew a man, who doesn’t want him to do it. But I think he will take the step of faith and get baptized.  The other fecha is a woman who we contacted on a bench and reads everything we give her and is progressing so well. I really could see her as the next relief society president.  She is great!! She just has the question of whether Peter gave the priesthood to another man before he died so we obviously pounded on the restoration and told her to take this question to God. So we are seeing her on Wednesday to see how the prayers went.

We even have more fechas to set this week with more investigators; it is truly incredible what we are seeing. The Lord just blesses you when you get out the door and talk to people and try your best.  In three weeks this place should have lots of baptisms.  Do work son!!!  

So we plan to work even harder this week and keep the ball rolling. Las Arenas is making a comeback!!! I hear school is starting soon, ha ha, what a bummer. Hope the summer was good!!
