This week was a normal week of missionary work, where the only things exciting happening are with your investigators... fortunately we had some really exciting things happen with our investigators this week.
First of all, we have a new set of investigators named Leda and her husband, Valter. They are an older couple, been living together for 25 years and they have been listening to our lessons! They are a very sweet couple and Leda specifically has already been very proactive in helping us out, she has referred us to her friend, passed out a Book of Mormon and hasn’t even been to our church yet, and the best part is they want to be baptized!! We taught them about the law of Chasity and Leda just comes right out and says we need to get married don’t we. So after 25 years we will be helping to get them officially married…they are golden and we are really excited.
Larielly is our other really amazing investigator. She is a friend of Meme and Maria-Paula who are some recent converts here, and she just rocks. She knows a few things about the church from Meme and Maria-Paula and was at their house one night during a family night we were having there. After we gave a short spiritual message she volunteered to give the closing prayer and said in her prayer that she knew this church was the only true church, and then finished her prayer, afterwards we were a little in shock... This is the first time we have taught this girl!! The Spirit is so strong! And the power of members is so strong in converting people. Now we are teaching her the lessons and preparing her for baptism. She is great!
We have a few other potential investigators who I will update you all on as things progress, but at this point there really isn´t much else to say.
Our district has been a blast; Elder Peralta continues to be awesome along with Deleray and my sweet comp, Lafaiete. And the new sisters are also way cool.
Until next week,
