Well this week has been amazing!!! Definitely much better than last week. But that's how missions are. One week is hard, the next is amazing!! This week was all about Maria. She is progressing sooo much. We have taught her everything and we are just reviewing the things we havent taught her in a while. Earlier this week we went over to teach her the Restoration again and as we were talking to her about it, her granddaughter Roxanna was very interested and telling the other little girls to be quite so she could hear and listen. Then we watched the Restoration video and Roxanna just loved it. She was eating it up. And so we started teaching her this week! She is 8 years old! And Maria really wants her to be baptized with her. They are both getting baptized! It was be amazing and I am just so excited for them. Its been amazing to see how far Maria has come in the past 8 weeks that we have been teaching her. She is currently quitting smoking. It has been 3 or 4 days now. Her body is going through withdrawals but she is so strong and she is really trying! She has candy all over her house and we gave her a ton too :) haha she really is the funniest lady and I love her so much. She does everything she can to get herself and her granddaughters to church and to activities and devotionals. She knows this church is true and she believes in it. She answers questions and participates in church and the ward just loves her. So do we!! She is an amazing woman. I love this gospel so much and I know that it blesses lives. And blesses families. I have seen it first hand and it is so true. Share the gospel with everyone that you know. That is our responsibility as members of this church. We also got to work with some investigators, Carmen and Adela this week who are jsut waiting for an answer to get baptized. We are trying to get them to church and teach them more. They are great! And they know our church is true but they just need an answer!
So this week we also got in to see a lot of our less actives. Karla is 25 i think and a single mom. She is darling!!! We taught her this week and she really was touched and told us how she has the desires to change when we are there. We were hoping she was going to be at church but she wasnt. But we will keep trying!!! :) We visited Irais though who is the daughter of a member, 19 and going to school and hasnt been to church in a while! But she was there yesterday!! It was so great to see her there.
We were also blessed to find 4 new people this week. The Lord really does put people in our paths that are ready to hear the gospel.
I know this church is true with all my heart. My testimony has really been strengthened this week. And when we really align our will with the will of the Lord, we are blessed and more happy than ever. And I know that to be true because its been happening to me lately, especially this week. I am sorry this is so short but I hope you all have an amazing week!!! The church is true!!! Thank you for all your love and support! Love you all!
Love, Hermana Dorian
