HOLA!!! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!! (This week...)
This week has been a good one! We picked up a new investigator! Her name is Ar..., and she was attending our English Classes, and the North Elders asked if she wanted to have the lessons, and she said yes! They couldn't teach her because her husband was never home, so they passed her off to us! We had one lesson with her, and it was great! I can tell it will be slow, but that is totally okay! As long as we see progress! :)
Ya... has progressed sooooooo much this week! It seems like a complete 180! :) We got to see her 4 times this week! That has never happened! :) We taught her 2 lessons this week, we had a different lesson than usual, and shared with her a few videos about being a daughter of God, and we committed her to pray to know if God loved her. She left like He does, and that made her really happy! :) We taught her the Gospel, and the lesson went soooo well! :) Teaching her about Faith was really easy to accept and she was so surprised to know that her sins could be washed completely away through Baptism and recieving the Holy Ghost. But.... she said she would "think" about baptism until she is 15... But we have no doubt it will be sooner, she is so ready! :) She even went to Na... baptism! Which was a total surprise! Not even his family knew about it until the day of! All of the missionaries knew for the past 2 weeks, but he wanted to surprise his mom and sister (who are members). :) It was awesome!
So.... Funny story! We bought a bird! Yay! :) haha :) So on Saturday we were having Correlation with our Ward mission leader at his house. We had just finished and he was showing us his electric guitar and he looked out his window, and said, "Why are the birds out?!" (They have 3 parakeets, one white, yellow, and blue, who belong to the three kids there.) We hurried outside and grabbed the white and yellow one, but could not find the blue one anywhere! We assumed it flew away, but poor little Sa..., his niece, was in tears! So we quickly ran to the pet store and all 6 of us missionaries bought her a bird! It was fun! :)
Hope you guys have a great week! Love you all!
