New Area - Universidad
Hola Familia y Amigos,
THANK YOU everyone for sending such great letters, videos, and pictures!! Hahahaha I absolutely died watching Paigers dance. Seriously, you need to put a leash on that girl because she's got some moves in her haha
Well we sure have been seeing miracles here in our area. Still not quite comfortable with the whole area but we are still getting to know it a little more every day.
House condition: Well the good news is that the owner replaced the shower head. The bad news is that the water ran out a few days ago and we still don't know if it works. (did you know that if you dump a lot of water in the toilet at once it automatically flushes.. I learned that this week) Still searching for the flowers.
We have some really awesome investigators who love our visits which is a super tender mercy here. The only problem is getting them to come to church. Well I guess the key sometimes is just like Dr. Marvin's counsel.. baby steps.. haha baby steps to the commitments baby steps to reading the book of mormon, baby steps to the church and baby steps into the waters of baptism! ;)
Marcelo, our investigator I talked about last week is doing absolutely amazing. Like I mentioned last week, the church here in south america is reading 15 minutes in the book of mormon each day as a family and individually. Well Marcelo took the challenge. We visited him this past week and he was just sooo happy. We asked him how he was doing with is reading and he showed us the little chart they gave us at church and he is marking off each day and every chapter that he reads! He was already in 1Nephi16 and that's super good for our investigators here. He even told us how he actaully separated from his member girlfriend but he is just waiting to know if she's the right one for him. He's depending on the Lord and he is absolutley happy. He told us that many people have been asking him how he can be so happy even after he broke up with his girlfriend but he just said that he knows exactly why.
This gospel is seriously such a blessing in our lives that sometimes we take a little for granted. It's so amazing how following even the simplest commandments can bring us such peace and happiness. I know that the Book of Mormon holds the spirit of God. I know it is the most correct book on this earth just like Joseph Smith said. If you are not reading the Book of Mormon every day, I advise that you change up your routine a little bit so that you can experience the amazing blessings that the Book holds each and every day of your life.
Thank you everyone for everything!! I love you all and I hope you all have an amazing week!!
