Aquí hay más español en mi carta en vez de
solamente "hola familia"! (Here is some more Spanish in my letter instead of just Hola Familia). HAHA, I really, really enjoyed the Skype
that we had Sunday night. Wow, it was so special to see all of you
there, hear your voices, see Grandma Janis, and meet Rebecca (i.e., Derek's girlfriend). Every
time I talk to you guys I get an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for the
blessings that the Lord is showering over every single one of you guys
at home. I can't wait for Chad and Elaine to leave on your missions! You guys have so much to
look forward to!
I thought I would let you all know about another miracle that I saw this last week! They never get old!
last Sunday, a young single adult brought her best friend to church
that really wanted to get to know the church and get baptized. We went
by every day this last week and she accepted everything that we taught.
She would then do everything that we left as invitations; to pray or to
read. She loves the Book of Mormon and got a specific answer to prayer
to be baptized this last Sunday. We also had the opportunity put her
into an interview with President's first counselor. She came out so
excited and SO ready for Sunday. When Sunday came along she had
insisted coming to church on her own. We walked into church and she
wasn't there...We tried calling and she didn't answer. We left the
church to go to her house and see what had happened when she came
running toward the church. She was so worried because she had woken up
late and came running to church. She looked so relieved as we told her
that everything was ok and that it would all work out! She got baptized
and came out of the water with a huge smile on her face!!
Well, I am looking forward to a great week with a Zone Conference
and many, many interviews and interchanges! Les amo y les agradezco por
las oraciones y amor que me evian. Voy a echar muchas ganas esta
semana! (I love you and appreciate the prayers and love you send me. I am going to work really hard this week!).
