This place is full of it. There is love everywhere. And this week I really felt it. Hermanita Henao se fue a otro barrio and the big surprise was that Hermana Salas, who left on Monday, returned with me on Wednesday! So now we are working together, just us two, and it was weird for the first day or two. We are learning well together and we had a wonderful week.
We worked hard to have daily contact with our investigators this week and the results were miraculous. Juana and Gabriel have told us that they have no doubt that this is the truth and are excited for their baptisms this month. They came to Church and everyone welcomed them with open, loving arms. Jonathan and Angie are living la Palabra de Sabiduría and Jonathan began praying for a new job so he can keep the Sabbath Day holy. They came to Church and Jonathan told us he has a new job in a bakery, Monday-Saturday. :) Silvia, who has been meeting with missionaries off and on for months, read Alma 34 four times this week and came to Church for the first time. The hand of the Lord is undeniable in the lives of these wonderful people. We were all smiles at Church yesterday.
The Lord really prepares people to receive the truth. I love watching Him work in the hearts of people as they put it all on the line and trust in Him. The blessings that come from going to Church are incredible. I dont think I noticed the blessings from church attendance much before, but here I can see it clearly. In our District Meeting this week we talked about the blessings of church attendance and how we can help people to attend. The truth is that the Lord promises us the fulness of the earth if we sanctify this holy day, which basically means He promises us everything if we will take this time to worship Him. I love it.
I am happy. I am learning. I am seeing that we are all children of God and that He has so much more for us than we can imagine. In a world of darkness He offers us light.
Family, I love you. You are the greatest blessing in my life. Be well.
