May 12, 2014

What is up everyone? So ya yesterday was the best day every.  I LOVED
being able to see the fam and talk to you guys.  It's crazy that I've
been gone for 4 months!  Seeing everyone makes me want to work even
harder.  I have been so blessed and these people here can have that
same happiness to know that families are forever!

Not too much to talk about because I shared most of it yesterday haha
but I just want everyone to know that life is gooooooood.  We found
some more people to teach and they seem to be golden so we'll see.

So Ramón asked us to come over Saturday night.  We came over and he
just started crying.  He told us he found two jobs for sunday and he
accounted it to our prayers.  He read us a talk for an old conference
about the power of a testimony and talking to everyone.  This
missionary once talked to this little boy on the street and gave him a
Book of Mormon with his testimony inside.  The missionary didn't get
the boy's direction and never contacted him after.  Well this little
boy read the Book of Mormon and used the missionary's testimony as a
big part of his conversion.  The little boy was not allowed to be
baptized because of his parent's.  Then years later this boy was in
the military.  Times were tough and he remembered the words in the
Book of Mormon so he decided to pray.  He felt an overwhelming feeling
to be baptized so he left right then and searched for missionaries on
the street.  He finally found them at a fast food restaurant and was
baptized later that week.  He spent years trying to contact that
missionary who previously gave him the Book of Mormon when he was a
little boy and eventually he found him.  He told him it was because of
his testimony that he was converted and now he has a family of his own
in the church his kids are striving to serve missions as well.

I am so grateful for this opportunity. We have so much to offer to
this world.  Never take what we have for granted:):):)
