Wow, I can´t believe it´s already Monday! The week has flown. Let´s start from the end and work our way backward.
Oh, but first, I want to tell Grandma and Grandpa Forsnes (one week late) FELICIDADES for their year and a half of dedicated service as missionaries in the temple in Halifax. I seriously love and admire you both ¨un montón¨ and am eternally grateful for your example and sacrifice. Senior missionary couples are the best!
Anyway, Sunday miracles:
-Belkys was dressed and ready when we passed by to remind her to go to church!
-Hna. Reina, non-member grandmother of recent converts, came to church without us reminding (or begging) her!
-Moises, an 18-year-old former investigator of the hermanas that were in this area before us miraculously showed up to church. He said, ¨I didn´t have anything else to do, so I thought, ´I guess I´ll go to church.´¨ We found his teaching record in the area book, and he apparently already has received his answer and has read a lot of the Book of Mormon. Our God is a God of miracles!
And on Saturday... we got left with a full font of water and no baptismal candidate. Cristian´s parents are going to let her aunt and uncle raise her, and they want nothing to do with the church. That hurts. It´s all part of the Lord´s plan.
Wow, I never have any time to write, I´m sorry! I´ll write some really good journal entries to share with you when I get home.
This work is so true! It is SO hard, and it stretches me in every way possible. But there are also miracles and wonderful moments. If you´re a missionary having a hard day, read some Alma 8, D&C 11, and 2 Nephi 4. The scriptures are so true. The gospel is so true. Be true! Live true and love Heavenly Father´s children!
