Querida Familia y amigos --
This week has been a finding week. We found 4 new investigators! And we are still looking for more people that the Lord has prepared. This week we have truly been guided to some wonderful people. On Tuesday we found a woman named J. She lives out in the middle of a vineyard--the pictures are near-ish her home--down a street in the middle of nowhere (somewhere in between Kerman and Biola). We were truly guided to her home because right after that we got lost in the vineyard! But we managed to found our way out. She was very welcoming and was excited to read the Book of Mormon. She is a wonderful woman who has a brother who is a member. We are excited to teach her later this week.
One of the hardest things on the mission is to see people reject the Spirit. We visited a man this week and got to know him and his family a little bit and then felt prompted to sing "Love at Home." The Spirit came flooding in! It was a wonderful feeling! However, this man quickly stood up at the end of the song and bid us good-bye. Sometimes it is hard to see people not want the blessings of the gospel in their lives.
With that being said, we had an amazing experience the next day. We were walking towards our dinner appointment and a whole bunch of little girls ran up to us asking "Do you have pictures of Jesus?" We assured them that we did and proceeded to give them all pass along cards. One of the little girls didn't really want to leave so right before we went into dinner we asked if we could go visit her mom. I love working with families! She willingly showed us where she lived and after dinner we went and knocked on her door. He mother opened the door to us with open arms and we had a wonderful lesson with her! She, like her daughter, is very sensitive to the Spirit. I am so grateful for those who are welcoming and listen to the promptings of the Spirit.
I know that it is through the Spirit that the Lord communicates with us. I know that the Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead. I know that He will help us receive answers to our prayers if we are willing to listen. I know God loves. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and that He too lives! I know They love us! Espero que tengan una semana maravillosa!
Con mucho amor,
