week 22 (9/7/2015)

Hey everyone, this week was great! 
Remember how for the past few weeks I've been super annoying talking about how visiting people makes all the difference. well... its going to happen again. 
This week we visited a family, that I'm honestly a little afraid of. They don't like  it when the missionaries visit them, so to help us we visited them with our bishop and another sister from the ward...... This Sunday they were in church!! It had absolutely nothing to do with us as missionaries, and everything to do with the love that they felt from the ward and through that visit they were also able to feel the love of God and feel once again the desire to go to church. There are so many people out there suffering who need our help. We need to help our Heavenly Father, He does so much for us, he gives us all so much and all he asks is that we keep his commandments and help others in return. I know its hard when we think about all the other things we need to do. But if we have our priorities straight a little visit to someone in need wont be all that hard, and will make all the difference for them. 
Also we have been teaching a guy named Pedro,  for about 3 months, and its been a huge battle to get him to come to church, we finally had to let him go and focus on our other investigators, last Sunday, HE WENT TO CHURCH!!!!!!!!! I actually cried that time haha. He is an amazing investigator, he reads his Book of Mormon all the time answers the questions in the back of the pamphlets we leave and everything. He lives with his girl friend who is less active and she doesn't want to go to church that's what was keeping him from coming, but finally they came!! 

We have a family of investigators that I love so much, they treat us like idk, they treat us every time we arrive at their homes like their best friends that they haven't seen in forever with huge hugs and kisses. The mom and dad are less active but they have 3 daughters who haven't been baptized. Since we started visiting them, they have been at church every Sunday <3. I love teaching them because you learn from them too and they actually want to learn they want to progress.
Haha the other day we contacted a reference from the Elders, and it was a Lady who told the Elders the only reason why shes not baptized is because nobody visited her..... that is literally the reason! our first lesson with her was the Law of Chasity haha and the next day she told her boyfriend that they are getting married!!
Thank you all for your examples to me for your love and for your support!! I hope you have a great week, be strong and of good courage. Help someone in need, after all we are all beggars. Mosiah 4:17-21. 
 Ah we are working with so many people!! I love Paraguay its amazing, the people are teaching me so many things, about life about the gospel about everything. I couldn't have asked for a better place to go. 
Have a great week!! 
With lots of Love,
