There is a family named Jose and Mayi, who have a son named Jose Angel, and it is just SUCH a good family. They have a baptismal date for theand we are SO EXCITED and they are SO EXCITED as well!! We talked about marriage yesterday with them and Mayi was 100 percent and Jose needed a little bit of time to think, but I am sure he will. They just have a little bit of problems with his work, but Mayi is just so happy and he loves it too. He reads more than her, but she went to church (he was working). What a miracle!
There is also a family named Henry and Gabriela, which is a partial member family. Henry is a less active member and Gabriela has gone to church a few times with her Mother in Law. They are really just hoping so much that this is all that they search for in this life, and they are doing everything possible to know. He knows its true, just needs a little help to get reactivated. Who would be better than his wife! They are willing to do what it takes to find the truth and find the happiness that they need in this life. What a miracle!
Henry's sister, Rosy, isn't a member but she lost her son 8 months ago when he drowned. He was the man of the house and she doesnt understand why God took him away. She is angry with Him, and really cannot be comforted. But we have been going and she opened up to us. I explained to her that when I passed for hard times and people told me that they understood what I was going through, I would just get frustrated. She felt that same way, but when I explained that the same Jesus Christ does understand, and that she wants to help us, and that she may not have her son for a wise reason of God, she began to understand. Now she is saying that she feels like this may be what she needs to do. What a miracle!
Also, Ignacio and Yani are progressing well. I love that family! They went to churchand their 10 year old daughter wants to be baptized! She says it ever time we see them. They are just super great, but with that whole VISA deal its hard to ge them. But they want to be part of this church. They want to participate in Christs church! What a miracle!
Jeremias is a less active who testified of the truth of this gospel and is sure that this is what he needs! He is coming back! And bringing with him a cousin who isnt a member! What a miracle!
Roberto is just as always excited, but waiting on a few papers to get married! WHAT A MIRACLE!
I love this work. I love being a missionary. Next week is transfer week and we will see how it goes, I am hoping that all goes well!
Love you all!
