Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalms 46:10-11

Life is Good!! 4/23/2012


 About my week :)  Lala is still moving along great :)  We taught her with the zone leaders this week and helped her out with a lot of the doubts that she had and things are moving just swimmingly for THIS Saturday for her to be baptized :)  She also came to church yesterday ALL BY HER ONESY!!!  Nobody brought her, she just said she'd come and she came :)  That made me so happy when that happened :)  So everything is going great, we've just got to get her committed to pay tithing (and teach it to her ha ha) and she'll be all set for Saturday :) 

Also, things are getting serious with Doña Tina. We're talking marriage and baptism with her almost every cita and she's looking pretty good. The biggest thing is her family, her kids don't really want anything.  She's just trying to figure out if she wants to commit or not, if she wants the responsibility of being baptized.  I feel like she knows she needs it, she just needs to decide if she WANTs it.  But she's reading and praying and talking to her "husband" and we'll see what happens this week :) 

The family Calderon.  They're doing great.  We taught them on Tuesday and Saturday of this week and they really like what we teach .  They have strong desires to follow God and to do what is right, they just don't know how.  They say that they're confused because of all the people that come to their house to pray and tell them what's right and they don't know how to know.  So we taught them about prayer, fasting, and the Holy Ghost.  How all we ask is that they ask God.  They said that they like our church better than all the rest they just don't KNOW for sure.  But we testified to them that once they receive a testimony, nobody can take it away from them.   

Last, the family Gomez, they didn't come to church yesterday but that's because they still have commitments in their other church and they don't know how to leave them and they're scared to stop attending over there.  They, however, are still super positive.  We're going this week to talk to them about their commitments and how they can try to get out of them.  They too have a lot of desires, they just need a little help :)  I think that's pretty much the news from this week, everything is good, life is a good thing and I'm happy to be living it :)  Have a great week everybody and I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
