Bon Dia Rumanan!
Wow this week was full of fun and some minor bummers but overall joy haha! First off, EUCARY GOT BAPTIZED AND CONFIRMED!!! Wooohooooo!!! One of the elders who started teaching her over a year ago was able to attend and it was just really awesome! She is doing amazing and she is a great example
Update on the rest of our investigators:
Darryl no longer has a testimony of the Book of Mormon and whatever his dad said to him really didn't help. He didn't attend church last week for the first time in over a month and we have a lesson with him tomorrow but we just kind of expect it to be a last little super sad lesson. It has been really sad to see his heart harden and he has just changed a lot :( Keep him in your prayers! God loves him and so do I and we are praying that he gets baptized one day because he has already had a spiritual witness that it is true.
We have been teaching this little 12 year old nugget named Sebastian! Wow he is awesome and really really prepared. We met him because he was always at the house of one of our other investigators from a while ago who never progressed. We gave him a Book of Mormon a while ago and didn't think much of it and then we didn't go back to that house for a while and the we stopped by just to check up on our non-progressing investigator and he came out and said he'd already read through MOSIAH. We.Died. So then we started teaching him and he is doing so awesome! He came to church yesterday and is getting baptized on the 15th of this month!! He has prayed about everything and he knows it is true and he is just an incredibly prepared little child of God haha!
Then we have Marlyn who is doing so incredible, family! I love her! She is soooo awesome! She is progressing really well and even though she has the craziest life on the planet she always makes time for us and for the Lord! She is really really awesome and we are really excited for her baptism on the 22nd!
We have also been teaching this Venezuelan woman named Belquis that we contacted a little while ago and she is doing awesome as well! She isn't super educated so it has been kind of hard because we have to keep it super duper simple and we have to take it really slow but she is definitely progressing! She is awesome and really sweet and she told us she hates when we have to leave haha! So sweet! We love her! That is everyone I can think of today... But we are working really hard and we are finding some really amazing people!
Alsooooo 1 MONTH AND 2 WEEKS LEFT OF THE BOM CHALLENGE!!! Keep it up if you're doing it and start if you're not!! I promise that if you take the time out of your busy life to read that book, that the Lord WILL bless you! I know that without a shadow of a doubt! Also, when you read the Isaiah chapters READ THEM WITH THE FOOTNOTES FROM THE BIBLE AND WITH THE BOM STUDY GUIDE! trust me! I actually understand all of those chapters now haha!
I love and miss you all soooo much and I hope you all have an incredible week!
