--Uncharted Territory--

My loved family and friends

This week has been full of little miracles. More than usual. First of all, our investigator, Brother Hermano Montinod is getting baptized this Saturday. We are so so happy for him. His wife Lorna (recently returned to activity in the Church) told us the other night with the change he has made in his life, ever since they both started going to church, life is more peaceful and just pleasant. Hermano is 61 years old and he drives a trike motor and he has one tooth. It's been a miracle to see him change over the past month. After every meeting at church, he stands up and smiles so big and says "Yes. Very good! Very good!" 

Elder Laureano and I made a goal to find family investigators and so we had the impression that we needed to think outside the box. So we took a trike and just went far down an old dusty road and then we said "stop!" and got out and the first house we tracted, we were accepted. We met SO many people ready to hear the gospel. We had the impression that we needed to go into the jungle and find people and we found families!! we had about 12 new investigators this week. 

One of the greatest experiences we had happened in an unexpected place. We were walking by a cemetery at dusk and Elder Laureano noticed a woman and her daughter visiting her grave, so we made our way through the maze of stones and talked to her. Sweetest woman. She was visiting her son's grave who had died a couple years ago. We were so happy to share the Plan of Salvation to her. Then we sat cross legged in the middle of the graveyard sang "Families Can Be Together Forever" and they sang along with the hymn book we had. There was a special feeling there. She thanked us with tears in her eyes and then we just left. We're going tonight to find her house and visit her family!

I love the gospel culture. It couldn't be more perfect. Establish celestial traditions in your homes, make sure that anything you do is conducive to the companionship of the Holy Ghost, because where ever the Spirit is, there is liberty (2 Cor 3:17). Let us use our time wisely and seek that Spirit diligently every day (1 Nephi 10:19). I love you all.
