Conference Is Upon Us!

Hello family and friends!!!

So this week was alright, we had a ton of people fire on us.  We still taught 20 lessons and found new investigators, but all the people we found over the last 2 weeks kept canceling on us!!! In the last 3 days of the weeks we had like over 20 visits cancel but we kept fighting the war and working hard then the Lord blessed with a huge miracle on Sunday. Well two.  

We were sitting there praying and sweating for all of our investigators to come 5 minutes before sacrament meeting as always. (Can’t wait to actually sit and enjoy a meeting without worrying about our people coming ha ha) We were a little sad to only have two, because we were expecting like eight or nine, but one man named Eduardo walked in. He is an older investigator and to be honest, I had already put him on the ¨back burner¨ so to speak because he was always working and never had time to meet with us or to read or progress. But he walked in and told us he only works weekends now, but he can still come to church. And he can meet with us anytime during the week. And we were talking with him in church and he said he is super motivated right now with reading the Bible and praying and knowing which church is true. He knows he needs to be baptized, he just doesn’t know if this is the truth, or the evangelical church is true because his mom is a faithful member there. But it was a huge miracle!! He is a very humble man and wants to find out the truth and be baptized. We have big plans for him to be baptized on the 12th. And then I want to baptize his mother from the evangelical church of course.

And then the other miracle was this menos activo lady who came in to church. We contacted her in the street like over two months ago and she said she was a member but had moved here from Bolivia and ¨didn’t know where the church was.” I’ve heard that one too many times! So we told her where it was and tried to visit her and call her to pick her up for church but nothing, so we moved on. Then 2twomonths later she just showed up yesterday! Pretty good stuff. 

Ariel our other huge miracle from stake conference will be getting baptized on the 12th as well, hopefully with Eduardo.  And general conference is going to be great!!! I will be watching it in Spanish again, and we have this new sister missionary here who has only been in the field for four weeks so I will probably have to translate for her....I am going to try and find a member with a laptop ha ha.

But life is good in LA; it has actually been hot this last week. I think I have an infection on my toe next to my toenail, going to the doc this week. Here is a picture of it :) go Cougars this week, gotta beat them Aggies. Love you all!!
