February 9, 2015 - 9 months.. wow.

We finally have a baptism this weekend!!!  After more than 2 months here looking under rocks and above the trees for people who want to get baptized, we found him! His name is Jorge. 2 weeks ago we started teaching him. He had been coming to church, and then finally decided that he wanted to listen to us! :D So we taught him and this weekend he is getting baptized. 

This week, Luis and Tania also got married! So now, he just has to come to church and then he will be baptized also! 

We had a super cool experience this week. On Saturday, we had been working, but all of our appointments fell. We had no idea what to do! We were lost. But we decided to do a prayer and ask for guidance. So we did! We finished the prayer and I just felt pulled to the right, to leave the street we were on. So we went, but then we passed a house, and the feeling stopped. So I looked back, and saw this wooden door. I just knew. That was where we needed to go. So we went. And this lady opened the door. She was talking on the phone and we heard her say, I have been really down lately. And I just knew even more. So we started talking to her and it turns out that her daughter had been listening to the missionaries before, but that she had died from an illness 2 or 3 weeks ago is all. We were able to teach her the Plan of Salvation, and invited her to church, but she didn´t come :( But we are going to go visit her this week because I know that she is ready to hear this message! :)

That is all that I have time for! But keep reading the Book of Mormon! Keep praying! And always go to church so that you can always be ready to recieve the blessings. It is like a cup. The purpose of the cup is to hold water. But if it is turned upside down, it can not do it´s job. Like us! God has many many blessings for each of us! But if we are not oriented good, or if we are turned upside down, we can not recieve the blessings!

Love, Elder Parker
Luis and Tania!
