Cena de Amor y Amistad


It is still quite cold here. But not as bad as home, so I can´t complain. We had a great week. On Thursday and Friday we had two days of special training with President. As always we left super uplifted. Friday evening the jovenes hosted a Cena de Amor y Amistad to raise money for an upcoming temple trip. We went with quite a few investigators. ¡Fue genial! I really LOVE Granollers.

Heavenly Father answers his children´s prayers! This past week God answered my prayers and the prayers of a young joven. José and his sister Iveth have had several fechas in the past, but never went through with their baptisms. We eventually had to stop visiting them regularly, which was probably the hardest thing I have had to do in my mission. However last week when all of our plans fell through we decided to pass by to see how they were. We had a great lesson! Although we had not been visiting him, angels had still been preparing the heart of José. He finally opened up and told us the doubts he had about God. So we invited him to pray and ask God if he existed. On Friday José came to the ward activity. During the activity we pulled him aside for a lesson. We asked him about his prayers. And his response to our question was amazing! He told us that he had indeed prayed. He felt in his heart happiness as his answer that God does exist. And thus he wants to enter through the gate to heaven, which is baptism. We immediately invited him to be baptized and set the fecha for this upcoming Saturday. The next day his little sister expressed desires to be baptized too! I never prayed so much for another family (that is isnt my own) as I have been praying for this family. And finally they are getting baptized!

¡Hasta luego!
