September 19, 2016

This week we had many miracles happen to us.

Some exciting news is that we will have a baptism this Saturday! His
name is Joseph Sanchez and it's been a long time coming. He has been
taught now for about 6 or 7 months and last week we had the lesson
that changed everything. It was the first lesson that Joseph has had
in a while and we decided to teach the restoration. He was at the home
of a member family and the setting was perfect. By the end of the
lesson we had him say a prayer to ask God is everything we just told
him is true. He did so and after we finished we gave him some time to
feel the Spirit. We all stayed quiet and many people started crying at
this point. When he was ready I asked him to describe how he felt. He
said that he felt really good and very peaceful. We told him that it
was God that gave him those feelings. I then invited him to be
baptized and he said "I finally think it's time to do it." He chose
the date of this Saturday and we're really excited for him. All of his
friends have been invited and his family is going to attend.

In other news we have been teaching a man named José for a while now
and he's gone through some pretty rough things in his life. But now
he's doing much better and actually said that he wants to be baptized
in the last lesson we had with him. We're going to stop by later today
and invite him to be baptized and give him a date to work on. We're
really excited for him as well and he'll probably be the second person
baptized after Joseph. If everyone can pray for José he really needs

The weather is finally cooling down and things are picking up in the
area. Everything is going well with Elder Rojas and I and we're
working like crazy! This will be the last week of the transfer so it
will be exciting to see where I go after this. I'm hoping that I can
stay but you never know.

Anyways here's some pictures of us with the Toro family. They're a
wonderful family and I cooked dinner for them this day.

I hope everyone has a great week!
