Great week over here in Curacao!!!
A couple of fun things about the area that we work in: it is by far the hardest area in all of the ABC islands, and we contact (try to introduce themselves to strangers) all day every day, which basically means that we stand out in the HOT HOT sun all day and yell into peoples houses. How we are not discouraged? I have no idea, but we have been able to have lots of amazing experiences like you all read about last week. But it has been an amazing week. biggest thing of all i think is that ALBERT FINALLY CALLED US THIS MORNING!!!! we were smiling like IDIOTS. it was so exciting. I looked at the phone and I was like, "who's Albert?" and looked at Sister Cole, and then we both realized, and Sister Cole was like, "ANSWER IT." hahahaha it was awesome. He is sooooo cool!!!!!!!!!!!! God is good, people!
Anyway so first off i just want to say a happy happy birthday to Deb V.!!! I love you!!! Thank you for being such an amazing primary teacher and an incredible member of the Woodbury clan!
So one of the coolest things that happened this week was with an investigator named Guido. I honestly haven't been too sure about him up until our last lesson with him. We pretty much implored him to pray about Joseph Smith in the last lesson that we had with him and he did it! He knows he's a prophet! But not only that, his girlfriend doesn't really love that he is meeting with us. He told us that he explained to her that he knew Joseph Smith was a prophet!!! WOWWW! so cool. She was telling him that we use a different bible but he explained to her that we use the bible, but we also use another book called the Book of Mormon. we hadn't even taught him about the Book of Mormon yet but somehow he explained to her perfectly. that was just so cool.
As well this week, Romeo fed us! It was soooooo good. He is one of the most firm recent converts I have ever met. He received the Melchizedek Priesthood yesterday and he is just soooo happy. just got called as a missionary work leader in the branch which is awesome because he is a great missionary and is really good with missionary work. he helps us SO much.
Last piece of huge news, Denitza and Rodolfo came to church!!!! wow they are awesome. they have been taught for suchhhh a long time and have only been to church once so that was a huge step for them. they are so awesome and they are progressing so much. I love them so much. I love all of these people so much!!!! other than that not too much has happened around here. we have been blessed with lots of spiritual experiences while contacting so that has been amazing. Major tender mercy from the Lord, because we do that A LOT. I hope you are all doing well and i love you all soooo much!!!! Please be a missionary this week and share your testimony like Guido did!! :)
