One of our new investigators is named Lizbeth. She's 16 and her and aunt and cousins are taking the lessons too. She and her cousin came to church yesterday and they loved it!! Her mom told her that if she gets baptized she can't live with her anymore so Lizbeth is living with her grandma now. She has a baptismal date for the 16 of May and she's super excited.
With so much going well we had to have something bad happen. On of the the families we're teaching named the famalia Terraza have been searching for an answer as to if the church is true. Well, they got into some anti-Mormon stuff online and now they're super confused about everything. It's just super sad how hard Satan works to stop the work.
We had a cool experience this week. We had an appointment with a new investigator named Jose Jesus and we went but we wasn't there. We decided to go to the tianguis (a giant outdoor market where you can buy tons of cool stuff). We walked for about 30 minutes and we were just about to arrive at the tianguis when Elder Sanders looked at me and said, "What if I told you that if we don't go to the tianguis and go back to Jose Jesus he'll be in his house?" I just said "Dang it" and I turned around and started walking back. We showed up to his house again and knocked and..... he wasn't there. We wrote a little note to leave on the door and started walking away and then he showed up!!! We taught him a really good lesson about the Restoration. It was just a good experience about following the spirit.
Haha, we were studying in the morning when we got a knock on the door. I opened it and there were two Jehovah Witness's. I have never seen so much fear in a man's face. He was probably like "Holy crap, a giant gringo missionary, I'm gonna die". I'm pretty sure he had to change his pants after that.
Also, my birthday was really good. We didn't do anything special for it. Actually ya we did. We spent the day visiting and talking to people about the restored church of Jesus Christ and how it can help them in their lives. I guess that's pretty special:)
I'm loving every second of my mission right now!!! Hard work truly pays off!!! I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!!!
