This week we were able to work a little bit more so that is exciting. We also had our baptism!! Marcelo was sooo excited and happy! It is so fun and amazing to see the Lord's hand in the work we are doing here. We really didn't teach him anything he was prepared to receive the gospel from the beginning.
We didn't get to work all week but when we did we worked hard and as a result we have 4 new investigators and had three investigators in the church on Sunday! I know that what Elder Holland said in his talk about how we get credit for trying really is true. This week is an example of that!
I was reading in Helaman this week, I finally finished Alma in the Book of Mormon and verses 18-19 really struck me. The Nephites weren't paying attention and doing what they were supposed to and as a result they didn't see the Lamanite army coming. It is the same with us. If we aren't watching out and doing the things we are supposed to like reading our scriptures and praying that is when Satan is going to sneak up and attack us. Life isn't easy and Heavenly Father gave us these tools to help make it easier, but we have to use them.
I know that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us and is aware of what we are going through. I know that the Book of Mormon is evidence of that love and we can feel his love when we read it. I know that families can be eternal all depending on how we use this time on
Earth. I love you all and pray for you everyday! Have a great week!
