Como estan todos?! As for me, Im great! This week just passed right on by. Dont really remember what we did. Missionary work no más!!
First off. Its official. Jessica is getting baptized this Saturday!! Elder Cline (district leader) said that she did really well in her interview and she has a really strong testimony. So we couldnt be happier :) This week we are going to be preparing her for her baptism, making sure she knows what she needs to know. And it was really amazing, because the other day we went over to her house and for the first time, her sister joined in! She just listened and its was funny because she sat down and then we decided to sing. And while we were singing hermana bravo and I were just smiling so big (it was actually hard to sing I was smiling so big). Haha. We also had another lesson with her this week and we had members accompany us and it went so well! They are her age and they really testified of what we were teaching. The spirit was really strong. We talked about the importance of praying every day, reading the scriptures every day and listening to the words of the prophets. All of these things are ways that God communicates with us. The lesson went really well! And slowly but surely Jessica has more friends in the church. :)
Wow..... what happened this week....
Oh! We found a new investigator! Her name is Alba. She lost her son and she is taking care of her mom. Shes really religious and she listens to us. The next time we go over to her house we are going to invite her to be baptized. We taught her and her granddaughter about the restoration. Im really excited becasue she has a lot of desires to listen to us and shes really nice! I also know that God is preparing these people. Sometimes they need to have a broken heart to be willing to listen to the gospel. So we are really grateful that she was put into our path.
We also have a potential future investigator. We made a contact to a girl named Valentina. We had passed by her house a few times and she was never there. One day we left a little early from the house, went to her house and we found her!! She came outside and we asked her if she had a little time. (shes 17). She said yeah! But she asked if we could have the lesson outside. So we just started teaching her right there on the street and the spirit was actually really strong. It was amazing! We were explaining why there isnt only one church if there is only one God. So we explained the Restoration of the church and Joseph Smith. She said that she was going to pray! So we are also really excited about her too!
Thank you all for praying for us! I know God answers prayers-- even in the smallest ways.
This week was a really good week and we are going to continue working hard!! I love you all and hope you have an AMAZING week!!
Love, Hermana Jacqueline Wiscombe
