Also this week we've been able to find almost 15 new people to teach. It's super exciting and helps us to realize that this area has potential. Also we had a zone meeting with president so that was fun:)
We've been teaching this new investigator Rosario. She's about 35 years old. She has two kids. A twelve year old that has already been baptized and a 2 year old. They lost their house a little while ago and she doesn't have work so they're renting a super small apartment right now. She has a baptism date for April 4. I probably won't be here to see it but that's okay :)
We had a super cool lesson with here the other day. She was telling us that they haven't come to church for a while because they can't afford nice clothes so they don't feel worthy to come to church. When she said that she broke down crying. We explained to here how those don't matter to God at all and that he loves them no matter what. She came to church yesterday and is super excited for her baptism.
We also talk a less active member named Carlos. He's 50 and kinda crazy. He comes off as this really intimidating guys. He's having surgery tomorrow for a tumor. We taught him on Saturday and during the lesson he just started crying really hard. It really surprised me because he seems like such a big tough guy but he was really scared for his surgery. We shared the scripture about Jesus walking on the sea and how Peter wanted to do it to but he got scared and started to fall and Jesus saved him and we explained that Jesus will always be there to save us.
Also on the way to church yesterday a man came up and started talking to us. He told us that the mafia is out to kill him and that he has a wife and a kid and he doesn't know what to do. He was crying a lot. He then asked us what we thought we should do. What??? Ask us??? I 'm an 18 year old kid from Utah who has never had to deal with the mafia or anything like that. People see us and just expect us to know everything!! But the truth is that they have a right to. We're representatives of Jesus Christ. I didn't know what to tell him about his problem with the mafia, but we offered a pray with him in the street and after the prayer he was a lot more calm. We invited him to come to church with us but he said he had lot to do ;) But it's just so crazy how people tell us all this crazy stuff and than ask us what they should do. I've honestly had to grow up these last six months.
Well I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!!!
