This week was super good!
We are seeing so much progress in our area barrio Tiquipaya. We are teaching this amazing family! They are so prepared to hear the gospel. The oldest daughter, Jhazmin, knows the ward secretary and when he saw her at church he was so surprised. And he came with us to the appointment we had and she is just so prepared. She accepted to be baptized and is just so ready. Jose, the member, when we got out of the cita he said I never would have thought she would be interested in this church. They go to med school together and have been close friends, but he never mentioned the gospel to her. Sometimes we really dont know who is ready.
Also we were visiting this baptist family who were just super kind, but Lenardo, the dad, had a lot of doubts about Joseph Smith. So, in that moment we kneeled down to pray with him and ask about Joseph and we all kneeled and while he was praying I started praying too. I wanted to confirm if this was the true church and I felt the spirit so so strongly. It was such a beautiful feeling. When we got up and sat back down the room was so warm and lighter. Lenardo had tears in his eyes but he insisted that he didnt feel anything. I asked him if he had a true desire to know if the church was true and he said no. We ended up dropping him and it was sad because I know this is the best decision for his family, but I came out of that lesson more converted. I think thats my favorite part about mission work. We can be rejected so so many times, but we just come out winning each time cause we are more converted!
Theres a new hermana in the mission her name is Hermana Lopez too! and I am her sister training leader and we are in the same district.
