So today has been just an awesome week! Martha got confirmed yesterday and also a young an we've been visiting, Jonathan, that had the cell phone antennae on top of his house, remember? Well we thought he was a less active member, turns our he WASN'T a member! He got baptized 6 years ago but was never confirmed! So we got to confirm him yesterday too! He's been waiting a long time for the gift of the Holy Ghost! haha :)
|Martha's Confirmation Sunday|
I got to go with Elder Rodriguez to the Young Womens New Beginnings after church, and it was so amazing. Martha was up there with them and she shared a very powerful message about Responsibility and her divine nature as a daughter of God. That hit me so hard, and I was so happy to see her now knowing who she is!

We had an awesome Family home evening with our investigator Lili and her husband who is a member but hasn't been to church since his early childhood! They were crying and told us that they were having some really hard problems and then we showed up and they have expressed how the Gospel has changed their life and marriage! They have the cutest little kid named Paco that is like 9 months old. Ah.
I know this is the work of the Lord, and there is so much of it here! The time is going by so fast it's scaring me! I feel like just a week ago I was leaving home and entering the MTC, but I'm about to finish my training in 3 weeks! I hope I can stay with Elder Rodriguez another transfer, we work very well together!
