The temple is a type of chapel where we make more covenants (promises with God like baptism and marriage) with God. Wow, it was awesome after more than a year to be in the Temple!
In this sector, our biggest problem is finding people a second time : ) Here in Santiago, the people work... a lot!! We find tons of amazing people, but when we come back, we can’t find them in their houses. We are working really hard with this and putting goals in place to fix this problem.
One of these investigadors is Joselyn. We called her, passed by when we could, and still couldn’t find her. I had nearly given up hope, but. . . yesterday we happened to be passing by when she was entering her house : ) I was so pumped! We got to share about the Book of Mormon, and she understood really well! The best part is that she’s excited about talking to her. . . I don’t really know what its called in English. . . when they are together (with kids) but not married? Well, just to make it easer and I’ll say her husband. She is excited to talk with her husband and invite him to listen to our message too!!! Yay!
This week was all about families! We worked hard this week to talk to all the families on the street, because this Gospel blesses families! That’s why I’m here, to help families be happy : )
We also found a less active family who we have been searching for! They don’t have much money, but through their faith, they are seeing miracles! When Vicky, the mom, made lunch, she only put in half of a bag of pasta into the pot, because they didn’t have more. But when she came back to finish cooking, the pot was full. God is so very aware of us. Especially of our families! He loves our families, and I know that we can stay with them Forever!
This week my brother Austin and Ariel (my almost sister-in-law) will be getting married in the temple. We believe that when we get married in the temple we are sealed together forever. I am sooo very happy for them and for the family that they are starting!!!! Congrats!!!!!!!
I love you all!
SED DE BUEN ANIMO!
