So we have had a great week! Jose our inv. from Quevedo is getting baptized . It has been such a special experience to see his conversion process as he has listened to the gospel and decided to change his life.
There are so many people that we are teaching that i love so much! We have a little family a mom with her two daughters that will most likely be getting baptized the week after i leave which is so exciting and happy for them!! We have had some really special spiritual experiences with them.... especially with the Book of Mormon.
With another inv. (Rosa) she prayed to know if Joseph Smith is a prophet at the end of the lesson and the spirit was THICK. After we asked her how she felt and she said "The same as i always do when i pray.... peace." I felt the spirit guide me in that moment and i said "if it werent true do you think God would allow you to feel peace about it?" So grateful for the spirit! We left her pondering many things and we are hoping that she will progress! Her challenge is her family... they are catholic and she is worried what they will think of her if she changed religions .
Right now it is carnaval and it is CRAZY.
We learned this week that carnaval is basically a "eat drink and be merry" type of thing. We saw that this week when we passed by some old inv. that we really really love and they were all drunk in front of their 4 little kids. Sometimes i literally feel anguish for these people and understand a little of what the prophets felt when the people always rejected the gospel and chose not to repent. I feel anguish! But i am filled with joy to know that repentance is for everyone and that we have accepted the gospel and we live it!
Elder Holland is coming to our mission and our zone will be singing for it.... AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are all SO excited. I am sure you will be hearing all about it next week.
