What another great week! Earlier this week it got so hot a transformer blew up here in Downey and so the power was out in a lot of places for the whole day.. Poor people with no A/C... But it was good for us cause everyone was outside of their houses.. Hehe
|Plan of Salvation-game versions|
We are working with this awesome recent convert family! This is Phoenix, Isaac, Mateo and Leamsi! Phoenix was baptized almost two years ago in Long Beach and the boys have all been baptized within the last three months and they are our favorite! This week we went over and decided to make our own Plan of Salvations while reviewing the original. Lets just say they love their video games and we had a lot of "leveling up" in our plans. :) #Beanie?itsHotOutside
We have been working with this guy, Santiago for a little bit and he wants to be baptized, but we have trouble meeting with him. We hadnt seen him in almost a week and a half and then one day we were knocking a potentials door and we see him across the street. So we half doorbell ditched this house and ran over and talked with Santiago. We made a plan to see him almost everyday and he has been doing good! Thenrolled around, we go over to make sure everythings all good and he is nowhere to be found. Sick. :) ahhh.. We will see. #wheredoeshego?
MIRACLE TIME. Elder Kuyoth and I drive by these apartment buildings everyday, they are kinda tucked away, no potentials over there, etc. So about 2 weeks ago, E Kuyoth says, "Hey, we should just go knock those apartments one of these days, I feel like we should." Sowe decided to go do it! We started out, Spanish. Spanish. Spanish. Great referral time, but no potentials for our area. Kinda disappointed initially, but we decided to keep going! 20 or so doors/people later we knock this door and someone inside goes, "Its the missionaries." Ohh man.. Turns out we ran into a part-member family! Mom, Dad and their 3 kids, two of which havent been but can be baptized! We start talking, they ask, "Where is your church?" Turns out they have been looking for a church for the last little bit because they want to start coming back to church! We told them, found them a ride and BOOM they cam ! Wooo! They clicked with the ward instantly and loved it! Even their kids, who never really liked church before said they loved it and want to go back next week! We are super excited to start working with the Sailor family! Heavenly Father is looking out for His children! :)
We have been working with the Fortun family for a little (Kimberly, Gisella and Fernando) and Fernando is leaving to visit Peru for a month.. :( we are sad. But we are super excited to continue working Kimberly and her mom Gisella! Who knows, maybe Fernando will come home to come recent converts? ;)
Well, its been a year. Please enjoy us doing the cliché "Burn-a-shirt" year mark event. #Flamethrower
Im thankful for the Book of Mormon and for continuous revelation. I know God loves us and has given us tools and things to aid us in our success and happiness. The simple things like prayer and the scriptures enable us to know God's will and prepare us to be taught by the Holy Ghost. We are blessed to be born in a time where continuous revelation is present and we have the fulness of the Gospel. Such simple truths such as the nature of God and Jesus Christ and the Doctrine of Christ are clarified and supported with the Restoration of the Gospel and the Book of Mormon. Im grateful to be a missionary. I love the mission! :)
