Dec 9, 2013

Crazy week of running to the offices with marriage papers, running everywhere to get things done, but a great week none the less! We had the great opportunity to baptize an Awesome investigator named Elizabeth, she is about 24 and is the daughter of a member that just recently reactivated. 

She has definitely been one of those golden investigators that you always look for as a missionary. But along the way I have noticed something. Before, we would always go to the house of the Hermana to talk to her daughter, and sometimes we would show up and she wasn't there, so we would always tell her (the mom) to show us where the house is and come with us to visit her there, and she would always tell us. "NO! I'm not going she lives with here boyfriend and mother in law, and they don't like this sort of stuff and will be rude to you!" So we wouldn't go. Then one day we got the directions to where they lived and went by ourselves. We got there and she wasn't there either but her boyfriend was, we talked for a little bit and asked if he would like to talk to us he said yeah and we had a great lesson. From there we have talked with and taught his cousins mom, dad and lots from their REALLY big family, and they love it. His mother especially loves us and talking to us, you can really tell these are people that need the Gospel in  there lives. I have been really realizing in this past week that we need to share the Gospel with everyone, even if we don't think that they are going to accept it is worth a try, and if we don't try they might never have the chance to find what they don't even know they are looking for, and have this incredible light in their lives. The Holy Ghost will put into our minds who these people are and its our job to get over our fears, and doubts and do what our Father and Jesus Christ need to be done!
Thank you for all the love and prayers.
