Close To Her Heart

Wow. This week has been crazy, but we've had some good experiences.

     Do you remember how a couple of months ago I told you about a p-day de zona that we had where we went to Santiago? I sent the picture of me in something that resembled a corn field. Out in the middle of nowhere looking for ruins and alligators that we never found... Well, there we went and ate baleadas in the house of a member that lived really high up a mountain/large hill.

      This week we found the daughter of the member that gave us baleadas three months ago in Santiago... The daughter is not a member, but her son that lives with her mother, her parents, and other family that live out in Santiago are all members. Her son actually just sent in his mission papers and is waiting for his call.

     When she understood who we are and who we represent she was so very happy. She explained that when she went to visit her mom and son she had listened to the missionaries there and liked what they were sharing, but had to come back to home. She had a testimony form what they had taught her but hadn't found the church here yet. We had a short but powerful lesson with her. She has so much potential!

     My favorite part was how she held the Book of Mormon we gave her close to her heart as we walked away. It was incredible.

     In the same day my companion was able to invite another of our investigators to be baptised and she accepted! The spirit we felt in that lesson and the joy when she accepted our invitation is unforgettable.

     Long story short, we had one of the best afternoons I have ever had in my mission.

     I really do love being a missionary!

Bueno, Hasta la próxima!
