Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

New Investigators!! 3/12/2012

How's life? Great I hope, I hope that everything is just jolly dandy on the home front! 

I have not much to answer on because everybody went and got themselves sick last week.  How's everyone feeling? A lot better I hope :) 

Let's see, we'll start with the people you know from this week.  So, the family Estrada.  The dad is a member and we've been visiting the kids and him for a bit but we really want to be able to teach the whole family, wife included.  So we've been praying a ton to be able to meet the wife and teach her.  Well, we set a cita in which they promised us that she would be there.  So we went and she said she was too busy to meet with us but that we could talk to the husband and sons.  So we taught the restoration and she was just in the next room over and so we talked pretty loud and at the end we asked her to come out so we could meet her and among other things she said how good it was that we're meeting with her family but she was born Catholic, baptized catholic and she will die catholic BUT she also referenced some things that we had said so we know she was listening.  She also let us put a cita with her for tonight so we're going to go with a lady in our ward who used to be SUPER DUPER catholic but now she's a legit member and were going to teach the Book of Mormon so I'll let y'all know how that goes :) 

Also, with Jerson, we're going to have to at the very least postpone his fecha.  He couldn't come to church or meet us this week, I think he's really stressing over the talking to his parents about baptism thing so he's avoiding the situation a little bit which stinks but we're praying for him and prayers on his behalf would be much appreciated :) 

We also found some cool news this week.  One lady named Doña Tina, she is a widow and has like 8 kids.  They used to go to church until her son died and she felt like the comfort and answers weren't there.  She's not necessarily looking for a new church but she's open to listen to us and she said she'd come to church next week :)  Also a lady named Lala (nickname) she's a friend of the Castillo family and she seems pretty positive.  She said she's always wanted to go to the Mormon church but for some reason never has.  She doesn't go to church but after we taught her how to pray she told Heavenly Father that she knows the way to get closer to him is through the things that we'll teach her :) She seems positive, we're going to see what we do to get with her family too. 

Apart from that, normal week.  I went on divisions to San Mateo which was fun because the two sets of elders there eat lunch and dinner together so I got to chill a bit with Elder Wimmer which was fun :)  Also, how was the anniversary? I'm guessing you'll tell me :)  Anyway, that's all I've got. Hope you all have a great week and don't get sick again :) LOVE YOU ALL!!!
