Pretty chill week here (haha.... that's funny because its actually SO HOT!). Trying to find some good solid investigators and we actually found a family! Fiorella is the mom and she has three kids: Margi (14) Ana Cristina (10) and Aaron (5). They had listened a long time ago to the missionaries but Fiorella just never had time. But now she's not working so much and is ready to learn with her family! So we are super excited.
Also just real quick a COOL STORY. We've been working with this inactive guy named Sergio. He's 22 and left the church when he was about 14. He's got all these tatoos and has just had a rough time. But he had a few experiences that brought him back to church and we started teaching him. But honestly, he changed his own life completely. I felt as though we were just helping him remember a few things he had forgotten and he just took them up again and applied them to his life. It was amazing to watch. Then Saturday night he called us to tell us he had an interview with the bishop and he was able to be ordained a Priest AND get a temple recomend!! He was so happy and so grateful. But the most amazing thing was that yesterday he was able to pass the sacrament for the first time in YEARS and he passed it to our row. It was amazing to see him so happy and handing us the bread and water, even with the tatoos that marked his hand. It just really hit me that Christ really can give everyone a second chance, if they come to Him with a broken heart and contrite spirit (2 Nephi 2:7). I love being a part of this work to bring His children to him!
Love you all and have a GREAT week!
