I say this because that seems to be the only time people are home, besides 7:30 or 8 pm. Well, they’re home later, but we can’t visit them. But OH MY was this weekend eventful! We finally picked up the young woman who’s been going to seminary as a new investigator, she should be baptized before or shortly after I simultaneously leave and return to my family. After that miracle, we went to visit a sister who we found earlier this year with Elder Garcia, had an awesome lesson, then she said don’t come back, and now we found her again, had an awesome lesson with her and her husband again, they all came to church, and then saturday she said the same thing to us, except with a different reason. BUT, this time we had the Pastor with us (a nickname given affectionately to a formerly baptist superstud in our bishopric), and he totally blew her mind with doctrine and as a result we are going to teach the lessons to her–though she was baptized 20-something years ago, she never received them and has been suffering from a lack of testimony ever since–WITH her nonmember husband, who is actually really funny although he attacks us a lot with pointed questions. All is well in East L.A., my beloved friends.
What really warmed my heart is when we went to a lesson with Byron, my recent convert brother-friend, and he bore pure, awesome testimony, helping our investigator have the faith to keep the Word of Wisdom and keep pushing for his baptismal date. That experience was so sweet I nearly cried right there in the lesson. I love seeing the gospel work miracles!! It truly changes us in such an amazing, awesome way! Make it happen in your lives!!!
