Fernando is doing so well! He is getting baptized this Saturday and is so excited! He went to a baptism on Saturday and kept talking about how excited he is to be baptized. He is just so humble. He told us that before we taught him he had problems with the word of wisdom but when we taught him the story of Joseph Smith and showed him the scripture in James, he decided to ask Heavenly Father to help him not drink anymore. And he hasn’t wanted to drink since that day! He always talks about the general conference talk that the spanish elder gave where he talked about being baptized at like fifteen and still being faithful in the church. He says he wants to be like him.
Andrea is also doing really well. She had school all this week and so we couldn’t see her a lot. I was kind of worried, but then last night she told us how she is always talking with the members and she even went to a church party in the stake without us knowing! I’m so grateful for the ward members that have just taken her under their wing and become her real friends! She decided that she will get baptized the ninth of May, for her birthday. She`s just so great!
We also started teaching Elizabeth, the friend of a member. She is super great, she went to general conference with her friend and we found her there. Turns out she already knows the bishop and a bunch of members!
We are just seeing so many miracles in our area. I’m so grateful! I love this ward and this gospel and I know that Christ lives and truly does know us! I’m so grateful for the scriptures, they really do teach us all we need to know!
I hope you all have the very best week!
