This week was way fun and awesome! Monday was cool and we had a really cool lesson and they seemed really interested until we tried to get a hold of them for the return appointment. Turns out wrong number. :( oh well, we had a really cool miracle. So we decided to travel to try a potential investigator and a referral in Brunswick which is about a half hour drive and a lot of miles, for missionaries, to get there. We didn't know if they would be home, but we get to the area and make a call. Wilfredo the referral happens to have time right then to meet. It was a super blessing because normally people work until late. We are able to teach him and set up a return appointment for . we taught a few door lessons, but the real miracle was to have Hno. Ventura come with us to visit Hector. It was just amazing to me to see the difference between someone who was receptive to the Spirit. One man in the room completely rejected the joy that comes from the gospel whereas Hector was willing to accept it three times over. we were ale to also visit Hector again and also Patricia in that house. Hno Ventura came again because he has really involved in trying to help her see the need of the gospel. It was awesome again to be able to give a blessing in Spanish to her because she was sick. After, we went and took Hno Nefi Barrientos with us to go visit Wilfredo. It was a super good lesson and I learned that the most important thing really is helping the families as a whole. In order to really help people accept the gospel, we have to help them in their family first. we had our mission conference which was Amazing! I am hoping they send me some videos of the presentations. we had the opportunity to experience some Mexican traditions around Christmas. Christmas, we were able to afterward go and share the Christmas program with Presidente Castillo and also the Ventura family. I realize now how blessed I was to have that as a focus in my family growing up.
I love you all! Thank you for everything! Shoutouts to Shannon for the 12 days of Christmas, Solangie for the Calendar, Nat for a taste of Christmas, and to all for your prayers!
