Week 53 Letter March 17, 2014

Hello Everybody!

So we had transfers this week! I will be staying here in Mirador but Elder Alvarez will be headed out. Elder Struthers will be coming in his place.

Well its a little sad that Elder Alvarez is going but we now thats where he needs to be. We had a really good week this week. We were able to talk with a lot of people and help them to feel the spirit. I feel that the main reason for our success was a fast we did this week. We were studying together and talking about all the promises that come with fasting. We decided that we wanted that power to help the people here and so we did a special fast asking in particular for that special power that comes with fasting. We really felt it and I learned a lot about the purpose of fasting.

This next week we are going to have 3 baptisms. Scarlet, Alexandra, and Jesus. They are three kids from here in the Ward who have less active parents. Well they were less active. We decided to baptise the three of them together. It will be great to have another baptism here in the ward. 

We also have three other investigtors who are preparing for a baptism. Mayra and Freddy are a couple who rent from one of the members in the ward. Mayra is very excited and really wants to learn and join the church. Freddy at first was a little hesitant and listened mostly because of his wife but he is beginning to warm up and wants to know if its true. They have a Baptismal Date for the 19th of April.

We are also working hard with Anabela. She is the girlfriend of one of the members here in the Stake. We had a very spiritual lesson with her yesterday. She really felt the love that God has for us and her boyfriend Edgar helped her a lot. Her really wants her to join the church and has been a great help. 

Well we will miss Elder Alvarez but we know that he is where he needs to be. Thanks for all of your prayers and support!

Elder Lightheart
