Happy New Year!!
It is 2018! It is crazy how fast the year flew by, I couldn't have asked for a better year and I am grateful to all of you for making it that way!
We have had a great week, lots of miracles and tender mercies.
Wednesday, I got to visit Guapilo on an exchange which was fun. I got to see lots of old friends and it turns out Sonia, the old lady we taught, feeds the missionaries lunch every day haha! We were able to visit a lot of people I had taught and it was a great intercambio!
One other miracle this week was Herlin! We were walking to an investigators house when Elder Matheson told me he saw a member family trimming their tree. So we headed back a few blocks, grabbed a machete and started helping.
We spent a good half an hour there and afterwards met Herlin, their son in law who is not a member of the church. Turns out the missionaries have never visited him but he is really interested and really open! On Saturday night he accepted a baptismal date and Sunday he attended church for the first time with his wife, who has been less active for years!!!!! It was a huge miracle and we are really excited for him.
Alan also went to church yesterday and this Saturday he will be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! Yesterday, after church, he was talking with all the young adults. They have done an awesome job friendshipping him and helping him feel welcome! Pray that he can continue to progress and be ready for Saturday!
The work is great here, possibly my last week in Lucero so we will definitely make the best of it! I love this gospel and there is nothing better than being a missionary! Have a great week and a Happy New Year!
