Week 43 (Nopal)

Hey, this week was really good. The family of seven we have are really progressing. If they were married they would be getting baptized next week. The wife who before didn’t want anything to do with us said she actually liked church.

Although it visually pained her to say it.  She loves how we focus a lot on the youth of the church and how it can help her children. Then on Tuesday we brought a family of similar age to the house and it was so great. They got along so well even the kids were best friends after. The two families started making plans to go out together sometime to go to a park or to a pool and it was great.. until the next day. 

The member that we brought was just barely reactivated and Satan is working really because of him and because he’s helping a family of 7. So Wednesday night at 12 the police went to his house and took him away with a false accusation. I can’t say more because there are rules about how I can’t talk about the details but all I can say is that the family is in a pickle with this situation because of the situation in this country. But ni modo. 

The wife came to church all by herself this week which is really great and a huge miracle. We knew her husband, who motivates the whole family, was going to be going to the other side of the country to visit family and we thought she wasn’t going to want to come, so Saturday we brought a bunch of kids from the primary and the president of the primary and some young women to visit her and invite her to church, and it worked haha, she, solo, got 5 kids under the age of 11 ready to go to church when before she wasn’t even willing to listen to us . I can already picture them in their clothes for when they will get sealed.

Also remember how we got jumped in the cemetery 2 weeks ago, well last week we found the guy who jumped us knocking on doors, and we went in and shared a message with him haha and he was really cool. He’s a little bit slower and I think maybe he thought we didn’t recognize him, we were gonna keep teaching him, but yesterday the police we surrounding his house so, well see how that goes. Everything is going good though. Hopefully we get this family married. This week we have a multi mission with Elder Rasband too so that will be good.
Hope you guys have a good week.
