December 16, 2014

Tis the Season for miracles! We had a great week and there is one experience we had that I want to share with you all! Our Miracle this week began with a lot of Stress. We had like 5 visits planned to fill 2 hours and a half and all of them fell so we were lost. We felt that we had contacted everywhere in this area and didn't know what to do. After a good 5 minutes of discussing we felt that we should knock doors down the linea even though we did that 1 week before but we followed a prompting! We didn't find anyone for the longest time and then one lady opened the door and we began to contact like usual.  She wanted to hear a lesson so like we learn we asked What church do you attend? She said The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We were in shock because we had never seen her in church. Turns out she was inactive for many years but her son is a counselor to the bishop in our ward. We taught to her needs and she has had a lot of struggles which is why she didn't go to church. The lesson was great and we invited her to church and she accepted. Sunday came and my companion and I were asked to give a talk. Mine was o menos by the way but still good. Just before i got up she walked in and by the look on her sons face i don't think he was expecting it. It was a moment that was very special when she walked in and asked where her son was and helped me to learn my purpose more. Maybe I won't baptize all of Guatemala but I am here to help people find the joy that this message brings to all and especially to the family! I know families are forever and I could see the joy between this mother and son this Sunday and like my Mission President says A smiles is the message!
We have a great week ahead of us with a baptism lined up for Hmno Alejandro! He has a great desire for the message and I am excited to see all that happens with him in his future as a member! He's a future missionary for sure! And we are also working hard to spread this message of Christmas! I hope you are all having a great week and a wonderful time this holiday season. But remember the reason we celebrate this time is for our Savior Jesus Christ and all that he has done for us! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
