Mommy & All,
"Do you believe that one day, you are not going to live in a world that was given to you, but you are actually going to live in the world that you dream of!"
First off huge BDay shoutout to my Dad yesterday!! Hope 45 treats you good Ole Man!
This week was pretty good. One of the members in our ward, Hermano Barcos, took us a little trip to a national park that is at the literal bottom of the world, where the road runs off and ends in the ocean and that's it. So its was cool to go see that.
We also had the chance to teach Sani again. We sat down and read the Book of Mormon with him and answered questions. We read the part where they find the Liahona and Laman and Lemuel tie Nephi up on the boat the they almost die. We asked Sani why he thought the Liahona stopped working. He told us that it was because it only worked when they were good and when they did good things. He went on to talk about Laman and Lemuel and repentance. He kept saying how those guys were crazy. They saw angels, experienced miracles, and yet still kept going back and trying to stop Nephi from doing what the Lord asked of him. He told us how Laman and Lemuel never had a true repentance because they just kept going back and doing the same thing over again. And just how us in general are really slow to forget God, and really quick to do the things that he tells us not to. Just like how they tied Nephi up on the boat and it wasn't until the boat was gonna sink that they decided to untie him. This kid is 11 years old and is already giving answers like that so it was really cool.
Mikaela and Federico, the people we baptized came to church after a few weeks of not coming. Mikaela has been pretty sick with stomach problems and went to the hospital probably 9 times. Come to find out that she is pregnant with twins haha. That was cool. They also brought Kati with them to church. She is one of our investigators and it Federicos niece. It was good to have them all there and we were able to share more about the Book of Mormon with her and just be personal witnesses to that and the things we do as members of the church. So we are really trying to progress with her and help out Mikaela and Federico since they are brand new to this as well.
