Hope all is going well for you this week. It´s been an interesting week for us. Friday we had the asado with Santiago. It was really good.
Sunday was a day of miracles. We had four investigators in the church (Santiago, Martin, Rodrigo, and Blanca) Rodrigo was not planned, but he wanted to come to church. Martin didn´t want to go, but arrived before we did, because we had to look for Blanca. After sacrament meeting Nelson and his sister approached Blanca and said: ¨Hola Vicina¨. We couldn´t believe that they knew each other. They aren´t direct neighbors, but they live close enough.
Rodrigo loved church and later in the day, we had an appointment with him. He loved church and felt the Spirit. We asked him if he deisred to be baptized and immediately he said yes. We put a date for the 10th of November, and he immediately said yes. We just about died with happiness. At the end of the lesson, he said: ¨Entonces, estamos preparando por 10 de Noviembre.¨ Which means, So, we´re prepared for the 10th of November. He reminded us about his baptismal date!!
Afterwards, we visited a part member family. The dad is a member since birth, but is very inactive. We are teaching his wife and soon his daughter. They are so prepared. They had a bad experience with some members and didn´t want to talk with anybody from the church for a while, but they are amazing and we are so excited to teach them.
We then did divisions and the members here are amazing. As members, I don´t believe that you realize your value. Our appointments were miracles, because of the spirit and testimonies of the members.
We are still trying to update the records and are finding a lot of members who want to return to the church but don´t know how. It´s amazing to feel God´s love for them. We pray that we will find people who are prepared to receive the Gospel through the efforts of helping the branch. References from the members mean everything to us as missionaries. The investigators are prepared through their friends and aren´t alone at church.
Transfers are this coming sunday. We don´t know how things will go, but I will probably be staying here in Rio Gallegos for one transfer more. We´ll see what happens.
I hope this week is special for all of you. I love you all so much and we pray for you each night. Keep your chin up and the Lord will guide your way.
