Feb. 28, 2011
Gracias familia y todos los demas por los Happy Birthdays! But ya this week was awesome here in spokane. Who would have a thought a boy from Texas would just own the snow with his driving skills. Pretty sure I am professional. but now for the more important things. Take note, there is a promise in the back of the book of mormon, that says that all who read and ask God ,in the name of His son Jesus Christ, with a sincere heart and with real intent will know the book is true by the power of the holy ghost. Knowing that God's promises will come to pass, and having acted on the promise myself multiple times, it is always my favorite thing to testify of the book of mormon with a surety that everyone will get an answer if they apply this promise. So our investigator Isabel has been applying this promise; for the past two weeks she has read the Book of Mormon every day and has prayed everyday to know for herself. So yesterday we go over and finally we were able to teach her. And she starts telling us how she knows the Book of Mormon is true. And I ask her, well what does that mean to you, that the book of mormon is true. She responded by saying...well it is the evidence of everything, it signifies that Joseph Smith was a profeta de God, that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ. Talk about an answer only received through the Holy Ghost. And so then we invite her to be baptized, and she kinda stops and thinks for a little bit and says she doesn't know. And I am thinking, well what do you mean you don't know, you obviously know the church is true. So we talk to her a little bit and try to find out what her concern is. And then my companion just asks her, well why don't you want to be baptized? And she says well i do want to be baptized, but i just cant be baptized. And to make a long story short, she is not married but the guy she lives with is married, but his wife is down in Mexico and refuses to get a divorce. And well Isabel y Margarito have been together for 4 years and are raising their daughter, so they are not getting split. But holy cow! Ya so she might not be being baptized for a while, probably, but miracles still happen. But either way, the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a profet of God and God fulfills every one of His promises. Alex is also doing so awesome, and he definately will need yalls prayers this week, because we will be teaching him the law of chasity...if yall didn't know he is living with his girlfriend, and she doesn't like us too much. But Miracles have been just flowing into this area, we found a family this week, and we will be teaching them tonight, and I know more miracles are just around to corner. I love this work so much. I love yall so much and have an awesome week!
