Well, another week in the books! Elder Nelson and I are working hard and getting stuff done. We now have 12 investigators with a baptism date, and we are working super hard to help them progress. One of our new families we found is a mother and her son. She is 58 and her son is 20. The mom, Feliza, used to be Catholic and worship the Saints and the Virgens and what not, until one day she was praying to the Virgen and was literally struck by lightning. So she kind of took that as a sign that God did not want her to be Catholic and she has been searching for the truth ever since. She has also had like 3 different dreams in which she has seen Jesus, and as we were teaching the 1st lesson with Joseph Smith, she told us, hey, this is exactly what Jesus told me in my dream! So she and her son have a baptism date, and they are golden haha.
President Zobrist gave a talk yesterday for District Conference, and based it on 1 Nephi 2:15 "and my father dwelt in a tent." He talked about how significant that scripture really is. We know that Lehi was a wealthy man, and that he enjoyed a life of comfort, yet as soon as he was commanded to leave Jerusulem, he did, and lived with his entire family, in a tent, in the middle of the desert, because it was God´s will. That scripture, as Pres said, is an indication that we need to be humble and live according to the will of God. It was super interesting, because I had never thought of that scripture in that way.
Thank you for your love and support, I love and appreciate you all!
