I'm really sorry to hear about Karin. Stay strong, we got the plan of salvation.
This week we saw some miracles. It is really amazing to see that the Lord really cares about the little stuff.
Friday was the day of miracles. We had planning and lunch and Spanish Facebook and then hour of training/ companionship study and at 4 we had a lesson. Our lesson was with this lady named Beatriz and Hna Barrios was supposed to come too. Well, at 4:16 she called and said that she had just gotten out of work and that she had to go and pick up a prescription. So we left for our lesson. We were teaching the first half of the Plan of Salvation. We were finishing up with the Atonement. Hna Bishop wanted to show her Because of Him and right as we were in the middle of it someone starts knocking on the door and ringing the bell. We stop the video Beatriz goes to answer the door and she comes back with Hermana Barrios! It was so Awesome. #surprisememberpresent We started the video over and they were both crying at the end. We invited Beatriz to be baptized on February 21 and she said no, that she doesn't know enough. Then Hna Barrios started talking about how it's a process and how as she does the things that she should be she will learn more and all this stuff. We then invited her to be baptized again and she said that she would. It was awesome.
Last Monday for our zone activity we played "who's line is it anyways." It was super fun- who's line is it anyways was an improv show back in the 90s-2000s and Drew Cary was the host, it was pretty funny back then too. Anyways Elder Bronson- my district leader came up with the whole thing. There were just different situations and different rules and he had already chosen who was going to be in which thing...he is a creative one. We did one where there were two lines of people and one side was a missionary trying to check out at Walmart and the other side was the cashier who was refusing to price match and you could only communicate with questions. It was really funny.
After Pday we went out to work and we put two more people on date for baptism. I also realized that we are teaching a lot of young mothers. One of them is Eva Pelayo. She is the daughter of a way less Active Recent Convert. She has 3 kids, 5, 4, & 2. She just really wants to do what is right for her and for her family. When we first started to talk about baptism in our first lesson with her she was very very unsure about all of it. Something I have realized is that baptism is scary for a lot of people. But as soon as they realize that setting that goal is an act of faith, it becomes a lot easier for them to prepare for a certain day. Eva is preparing for the 14 of February.
We also saw Belen that night...another young mother. I think out of all of the people that we have that are working towards baptism, she is the most likely to be baptized on her date (7 February).
I love you so much.
