HAPPY BIRTHDAY MA!!!!!!!! lol How was your birthday?!!! Btw I knew Glorianne was going to get the job... After praying the spirit touched me and said all would be well...I actually got better in the stomach but have had the flu all week long... I am grateful that the Lord has a way of blessing his servants with enough energy to keep going.... WE GAVE A LOT of service this week too... It was funny because we gave service for 4 days.. Of those four days 3 of them were 3 days straight. We actually had one day were we served from in the morning to at night... It turned out that that was the day I felt the most sick... We laughed it off and sweated the fever out LOL By the time we got home from the second service with Brother Martes it was 7 at night and to shower then change and walk to our appt would have us arrive after 9 so we just stayed in our dirty clothes, stopped by the house and grabbed a hammer and paint brushes and went and looked for service. We found it with a less active family clearing our bushes that had ¨Snakes¨ in them. We were grateful because the family has 7 children and if we hadn't had cleared it out it´s almost 100% positive that one of them would have gotten bit... Yesterday we had two lessons fall through at the same time. We went to on of our ¨Tougher¨ Invesitgadors houses and turns out they were moving... We moved the house on foot with them and it opened their hearts to our message... The only down side was that the rest of the day we tough with shirts nice and BROWN LOL...
A really cool experience this week was that an investigador of 3 months FINALLY showed up to church with his wife!!!! His wife wants to be baptized SO bad... (Rossi and Leo) ... We stopped a couple days later and he told us all about how AMAZING he felt in church and the peace and love in his heart... He also loved the church's organization... That same night I had a feeling we should re teach the Book of Mormon... But for some reason whenever we talked to start we would get off track and talk about eternal marriage or the Priesthood... I finally couldn't understand why I had that prompting until Leo's 19 year old son walked in... We asked him if he had any questions and he paused looked at us and said... ¨Yea actually... Tell me all about the Book of Mormon.. Who wrote it? and what is it?¨ After I grinned from ear to ear at my companion Rossi looked at me with a puzzled look as to how it was that we knew to talk about the theme. After a lesson of almost 2 hours about the Book of Mormon answering questions we explained what the Spirit was and how it feels... My companion felt prompted to tell him that it was like a fire burning in your heart.. He looked at us through watery eyes and told us ¨ Your´e not going to believe me but I have feel that feeling right now and every time you two speak. I am going to read the book from cover to cover as soon as possible and pray to know if it´s true.¨ TALK ABOUT an incredible testimony builder. Rossi ended the lesson crying again.. I can´t explain how much I love the family.. Maybe it´s because Rossi reminds me a lot of you mom and Leo of dad just because he´s so Tranquilo (calm)... lol It was a great week!
I sang a surprise solo on Sunday... I had no Idea that I was to sing until Hermano Martes called me up... Try singing with the flu sometime... BUT with the Lord´s help I hit every note!!! I had no idea what I was going to sing until the sister before me said something in her talk and the Spirit came and told me to sing ¨Come Follow me¨... ME AND GLORIANNE PROBABLY SANG AT THE SAME TIME!!!! SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
I was buying groceries but then I get a call that an elder in my District was really sick IN THE SAME STORE WHERE I WAS SHOPPING. I went over and helped the elders (The two of them are VERY new) and helped get them home... If I wasn't there he would probably be unconscious in a Dominican hospital right now... The Lord is awesome lol
