Holy cow Dad is so skinny!! That last picture I almost don`t recognize him!
Ya that looks like my dream house 😉 Glad you guys had fun…Europe is the best.
I`m super excited for next pday because we`re making plans to go to a huge volcano right next to the pacific ocean with Flor y Marlon, the same members whose computer we borrowed to skype. and yes they are converts who were inactive for many years and reactivated a few months ago so that picture is from Marlon`s inactive bachlor days 🙂 he was embarrassed when he remembered that that picture was there haha. So if I don`t write next week it`s because we`re hiking a volcano!!!
This week was a week of miracles! First, Vanessa`s son Victor (who obstinately refused to get baptized) all of a sudden changed his mind! I don`t know what happened there but he came to us Thursday to tell us that he wants to get baptized in two weeks. He even named the date!
Next, Nelson Santamarie, Cecilia`s son, got baptized Saturday. Yesterday we went to their house to share the Joseph Smith Restoration video with him and his family. His older brother Luis, who we haven`t been able to teach because he`s always working, said after the video ended, ´´That was cool. I`m gonna get baptized.¨ Haha we were like, ´´Sweet!´´ and he said, ´´When can we go to the temple?´´. The Spirit was there the whole time. It was amazing!
Now I have to tell you about the Corleto Family. We contacted the couple on the street about three weeks ago. All I said was, ´´Did you know that Christ came to visit the ancient Americas?´´ Their response was extraordinary. ´´What?! No, we didn`t know, can we read about it?´´ So we gave them a Book of Mormon and made an appointment. This last week we went to their house and it was a different reception than we normally recieve. They were waiting for our arrival with drinks and refreshments, their two sons sitting at attention (no one was on their phones!) and everyone was attentive and asking really good questions. Last night we went again and they opened up to us that they were in an accident where they were all injured and their oldest son died, who was 5 years old at the time. We were able to testify of the plan of salvation, eternal families, and temples. The Spirit was really strong and the mom, Edith, said that she felt more peace about her son. The father, Oscar, said that since our first visit he has felt a different spirit in their home and he really likes having us over for this reason. They are going to go to church this Sunday and they`re praying about baptism. They are super Catholic but the Lord has definitely prepared them to recieve this gospel. They are such a great family and I hope and pray they have the faith enough to follow through with what they are feeling.
It was a great week. I can`t believe my 12 week training is just about over!
Love you all,
This computer is being dumb and won`t let me send more pictures. More coming.
