Oops, I thought I had forwarded Andrew’s email, but didn’t. ((Not entirely my fault this time. ;p)) Only 3 more Mondays of 2 missionary emails!!!
¿Mi Familia en los Estados Unidos (y Jeffrey)!
Yes, this past week was better. Whoo! First of all, we had two of our investigators attend church: Italo and Hna. Manola. Yay! Both of them were very close to missing the sacrament, but they both came! Italo bore his testimony in church too: It was quite simple, but very amazing! He said he knows the book of Mormon is True, because he read it one day and felt a lot of peace and joy he’d never felt before. He has a date for the 27th this month; he wants to get baptized on his 12th birthday. And Hna. Manola really loved church. She was all smiles when she went home with another member. Now the trick will be always providing a way for her to come to church (we’re going to start working with her son so that he can help her). We also had people from a rehabilitation center in Reque attend.
We found a new investigator named Omero. He had attended the catholic church and Jehovah’s Witnesses, but didn’t really like either. Then we taught him and his wife the first lesson, and he was just drinking all of it in. Basically, he’s been prepared. We gave him a Book of Mormon and he’s going to read it. He works all day, pretty much every day except Sunday afternoon, so I really hope we’ll be able to teach him! We also found an Hermana that has met the missionaries a year ago, but because of her work schedule she could’t see them. Now she doesn’t have a job, and she’s very interested in the Book of Mormon. We’re planning on teaching her later this week. So, yeah, this past week was quite a bit different that the week before. 🙂
You should go to the Open House! Yes yes yes! I went to the Draper Open house with Dad and Loved it! Being able to see the beauty of the Temple was amazing, and it made me more excited to attend the Temple. So, yes, Go to the Open house! 😀
Matthew! Thank you for your email!! That’s great that you are back in LDC! I love performing music. So great! Unfortunately, we haven’t really shared the gospel through music, other than in church. And you’re back at UVU! Fantastic place to be. 😛 And EFY! Love! Heh, I completely forgot about my blog. How’s that coming?
Josh moved to BYU?! Holy Moo, he finished high school! That’s so wierd… Then Conor is next, and then Travis. Ah! Where’s the world going?
And BYUs football games! Fun! How’s TJ doing in Jr. High? Did he get my letter? I sent it about… two or three weeks ago, I don’t remember when. 😛
Have an AMAZING week! I love you all, Dad, Mom, Matthew, Jeffrey, Robyn and TJ!
