HIS will

July 15, 2013

Hey there!

Oh boy, what a week. I don't remember if I told you, but we had a FHE at the bishop's home last Monday with Paulina and Edgar. It went super well. You could tell the bishop and his wife were really following the Spirit, because they told them that Paulina couldn't progress until they got married, and the time they're using to wait is just wasted time. It was really direct, but done with love and the Spirit that it went really well. We went to visit Paulina and Edgar on Wednesday, and I gotta tell you, they're the best! We were telling them that transfers are in 2 weeks, and it's possible that we could be leaving and different missionaries will be coming. They were sad and said they hope we don't change, but then Edgar said "But if you do get transferred, you don't have to worry about us, because we're always going to remember the Hermana's that found us and brought us back to our Father in Heaven. We'll never ever forget you. You saved us." It was really Spiritual. We just feel so connected to them. They seem so much older than they really are. They're both 23, but they just act so mature. Paulina is ready to be baptized, but they aren't getting married until December because they want all their family to be that's a bummer. But we've pushed and pushed and they know what they have to do now. We're just praying for a miracle that maybe somehow it'll work out that they can get married and have her baptized before we get changed. Hermana LeFevre and I emailed President Dalton saying that if it be God's will, we'd like to stay another cambio...he said that's probably okay! :) Yay!!!

So the two baptisms we have this of them, Franco, isn't gonna happen. I don't think he realized that it's not just something the cool kids's a covenant with God. So he isn't going to be baptized this Saturday. But his friend Wilson...oh he's golden! Last night we watched the Joseph Smith movie with him, and after it ended he said "That's a really good movie. What's it called? I'm going to buy it!" It was funny because you don't just hear investigators say that about the Joseph Smith movie. But he said that since he's been taking the discussions, he's a completely different person. He's happier and wants to help his family and he just sees the difference in his life already. It's so great to see the change in him. At first he was just like any other 18 year old kid, and now, he's ready to change his life. So this Saturday is the day! I'm so excited and happy for him.

Well, that's it for this week!
