October 6, 2014 - Another miracle family and conference

We have another miracle family now. We are still working with the other family, the only problem is that it is difficult to find them to be able to teach them. But we are still working with them. But this week we were  handed a new family as a present with a bow on top! :)

We went to visit a member family this week, a mom and her daughter, and on the way there, this couple was leaving their house in their car and stopped and told us that they wanted us to visit them! And they told us they were just going to take their car to house and then come back. So they went and came back. And it turns out they are the son and daughter in law of this women, and brother and sister in law of the daughter. So we taught them (on friday) and invited them to conference, and they came! And then we visited them last night, and the wife tolds us that she wanted to be baptized. We didn´t even ask her! She just told us, I want to be baptized. She also has had dreams that she needed to change. They were having marital problems before. But she told us that and I just wanted to sing and laugh haha. It was awesome!  The brother still wants to know a little bit more and maybe still has some doubts, but I am positive that they are going to be baptized. They really have a desire to change. 

This week was a good week. We had  a  ward family home evening night this week and it was way good. It was the first ward activity in a long time that the ward had had. The problem is that there is not a lot of support from the members here. But we are working on that and we are hoping that we can keep having these ward activities to help unite the ward. 

We are going to have a baptism this weekend! Almost 100% sure. Anabel wants to be baptized, and we are planning for this weekend! We just have to plan a baptism for her this weekend. She wasn´t able to be interviewed this weekend. So that is a little bit stressful if we will be able to get in an interview. But I am optimistic! It has been raining fairly frequently now.  But not too much. 

And conference. Wow.

"Far more important than walking WHERE Jesus walked is walking AS Jesus walked" - Thomas S. Monson

"We should, from time to time, consider if there is something better for us" - Carlos A. Godoy

I have a lot more, but they would take up too much space. But I am so grateful that we were able to listen to the prophet and the apostles this weekend. They are men called of God and have a special testimony and purpose here on the Earth, just as we all do.   
Don´t ever forget that you are a child of God and that He loves you and will be there for you. Each of you have a purpose that can only be truly fulfilled with Jesus Christ´s help. Seek his help and He will make you more than you can be. 

I love you all. Thank you for your prayers and support.
