Happy 4th of July! Hope you all had a great Independence Day. Elder Struthers and I celebrated by singing some American hymns. It was pretty fun.
Well anyway, this week mission-wise was fantastic. We had a lot of super spiritual lessons and a couple of miracles to go along with it.
Yumara went to church again. She had been progressing really well and it was great to see her at church. The best part didn’t actually happen until after church. We were rushing over to another appointment we had when we got a phone call from Hermana Anita, the recently returned missionary in our ward. She called to ask if Yumara could change her baptismal date! She told us that Yumara had gotten an answer to her prayer and wants to be baptized this Friday!! We got super excited. We are going to have a baptism this week. It is great to see how the Spirit works in people and helps them to know the truth.
We were also teaching Hermana Miriam’s husband, Arturo, this week. He shows that he wants to learn, however, he feels that he doesn’t know enough. He never really has read the scriptures and even though others have come to teach him he had never read from those pamphlets either. This week, we went one night without much time. He told us that he had read. We then read the scripture in Ether 12:27 and we promised him that he can receive the knowledge he lacks if he would humble himself before God and ask. We then all knelt then together. I offered the prayer and then we all took a moment to say a personal prayer. We then asked him how he felt. He told us that he had felt the Spirit and that he felt that what we had taught was true! He now has baptismal date for the 26th of July.
It was a great week. I love it when the Spirit testifies of truth. The Spirit will help anyone who has an honest doubt to come to know the truth.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,
