This week went pretty fast again - we have been teaching over 40 lessons a week! THAT is A LOT so its been pretty crazy! I have GOOD NEWS. I should be getting a baptism of 3 on the 20th! This family is so cool and is so ready for baptism. I don't want to get my hopes up too high but it is looking good. Margerita and her 2 kids will be getting baptized! The mom has a testimony but the kids are just my "cuates" and I really love being with them.
We had a crazy lesson - A lady was sure convinced that we were the church of the devil and she thinks we get money to preach and that we give the money to our leaders. We kindly said " No it is for service." Then she started rambling off about how feelings change and how we really can't feel the Holy Ghost! I had a hard time sitting there listening to that so I stood up and asked, "Dont you feel good when you read the Bible?" She answered yes. Then I responded, "Why don't you feel that all of the time?" She had no answer- all she said was it was just a random feeling. I then asked "Well if it is a random feeling, make it up right now...." I tesified that the Holy Ghost bring joy, peace, happiness and comfort when we do the things of the Lord and have a heart of peace and love. When we are hard-hearted the spirit doesn't dwell in that space and does not want to fight with you. I couldn't believe what I just said! I felt so powerful - HAHA!!! She had no response and we respectfully walked out.
How Is the family? How was your trip? I bet the RZR sounds so good! I love you guys and miss you a ton! Have a safe week!
