One of our investigators named Alfonso is progressing very well! He is very Catolico but decided to listen to us. The first few visits we talked about the Plan of Salvation and it seemed like he liked it, but he wasn’t keeping his commitments with us in reading the pamphlets we have. A couple of days ago we came back and he said he loved the plan of salvation pamphlet and now he knows why we are here. We then taught the restoration and he understood how the authority was lost and has been restored again by God through the Prophet Joseph Smith. He said he wants to read the Book of Mormon because he knows that is the key to really know that the church has been restored.
We invited him to baptism before and he said that he doesn’t need another one but when we taught the restoration this week we invited him again. He looked down at the Book of Mormon and then said "Vamos a Ver". He understands he needs to find out for himself and that we are not trying to convince him.
Read Amos 3:7 and then 1 Nephi 10:18. He is the same yesterday, today and forever and he works through Prophets. It is clear that we need modern day prophets. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet of God.
I love you all.
