The Work Moves On!


The work moves on! This week we went looking for a name that we don`t even know where we got it from and we found a less active brother who had been praying for help to know how to get back to the church. We went looking for his brother but found him. We honestly haven`t found out from where we got the name and address, but we found him and his wife (who isn`t a member) and they were pretty much just waiting for us to show up and invite them to go to church and for her to be baptized. They are Raul and Karina. Raul has a testimony but just hasn`t been going to church for some reason and Karina is really interested in the fact that families can be together forever. They pretty much made the promise right there that she would get baptized because she loves the church and go to the temple some day. It has been a neat experience to be an instrument in God`s hands to answer the prayers of one of His children. Heavenly Father knows each one of us and He answers our prayers-- in His own time and way-- but he does answer them. 

Other than that, we have just been working with the ward to get to know them better and have a better relationship between missionaries and members. We`ve been visiting the members who the missionaries don`t normally visit because it`s 'too far' or 'too hard' to find them. We have already received 5 referrals this week by doing that. By the sweat of your brow will you earn the daily bread. It hasn`t been easy to do what is right, but it is worth it. 

Other than that, not much happened this week. I have to go because we had a few hiccups with our schedule today but I`ll write more next week! 

Love you all!
