Holy cow what a great week!! These are the highlights:
Matias has been progressing a ton while preparing to be confirmed and yesterday he received the Holy Ghost. It was an awesome moment.
Florencia: Florencia is Matias and Leo´s sister. She has been attending every activity and seminary class that she can and is super excited! We finally were able to formally teach her this week and she accepted a baptismal date for April 8th! She went to church yesterday and said that she loved it. We left her the assignment to read 3 Nephi 11 and she explained the whole chapter afterward. She invited a friend to listen to us as well. She´s already a missionary! The young women are doing a great job of being her friends and inviting her to activities.
Nico and Marcelo: We passed by Nico´s house to visit the other day and his father came out of the house with a huge smile. He invited us to pass by and asked if we could teach him. OF COURSE, haha. He said that he is amazed by Nico´s change ever since he got baptized, and that he wants the same change. He started to read the Book of Mormon and we set a baptismal date for the 22nd of April. We´re going to see if he makes it because he still needs to get married and we don´t know how long the paperwork will take.
Javier: Javier is an investigator that I started teaching while I was on the other side of Branch 3. The other elders are doing a fantastic job teaching him. Yesterday he attended church with his two little brothers. After the meeting he came over to me and said: I was talking with the other elders and while I was in Sacrament Meeting I felt like I should move my baptism up to April 8th. I had one of those moments from the movies when someone gets big news and sprays out whatever they were drinking. I am PUMPED! His little brothers want to get baptized too :)
So we have been very blessed this week and I know that it is only because the Lord had had mercy on us. It is He who works these miracles. I am so grateful for Him. If it weren´t for Him we couldn´t do anything in this Work. We couldn´t do a thing. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I am beginning to know Him. As Easter comes closer, think of Him. Get to know Him by following His teachings. And have a great week :) I love you!
