Well... This week has been pretty maciza and full of little adventures. Delivering gifts that the Dey family left for the children of the branch took us to the farthest reaches of our area. It was neat to see what was there. More people than I was expecting these last few days let us in to talk with them, and we finished the week with a whole bunch of new investigators.
Sunday was full of lots of little miracles and firsts.
-A recent convert who baptized his best friend the first Saturday of the month blessed the sacrament together.
-Our recent convert who got baptized the same day passed the sacrament with his brother for the first time.
-One family where the husband isn't a member came to church all together for the second time. He also participated more than just a little bit in the Gospel Principles class, and stayed all three hours.
-One investigator came to church with us, and ended up staying all three hours because she found an old friend.
-And, we were able talk through what to expect in the baptismal interview with another investigator who is planning on getting baptized Saturday. She is so excited and has expressed such a great desire to change her life around. She has her challenges, but she is a very neat lady. She has taught me a very important lesson on seeing people like Heavenly Father sees them. People have a lot more potential when you look at them that way.
I just continue learning that Heavenly Father loves every one of His children and has a specific plan and work for them to do. He knows us and knows what we are capable of. I am so grateful Heavenly Father loves me enough to help me learn that lesson and is patient as I take my own sweet time learning it.
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and that your New Year's is just as wonderful!
Hasta la proxima!
