the Lord's hands

This week was really really cool. We had a solid week numbers wise and I feel super excited for this transfer because I know we're going to baptize un monton!!

We were called by a less active on Wednesday to go and visit her, somebody we had never heard of. So we went to the beauty shop where she works and she hooked us up with a super cool family! It's really cool because even though she's inactive and just now wants to come back to the church, she talks with everybody about the church. So we got there and she just started like preaching to everyone in the beauty shop about how great the Mormons are and talking about all the blessings. And then a lady she works with told us that she's interested and wanted to come to church. And that she wants us to visit her and her husband and son! So I guess the biggest miracle of all that is that she came to church on Sunday with her 6 year old son! And she cried during church and just loved it. So I mean it's just amazing that the Lord will work through so many different people to help God's children hear the gospel.

Lately I've really recognized that when we say "we are tools in the Lord's hands", we truly are those tools. If we try our hardest and open our mouths and are obedient to the spirit, we can truly be the tools in His hands to bring to pass so much good in the world. They need the gospel. There's no doubt in my mind that this is the most important work in the world.

I've talked about Maria a lot lately. She was supposed to be baptized on the 9th, but she's not married. So we have to get her married. But wait, problem. The guy she's living with (Franklin) is still married to his previous wife. So the process got a ton longer. And Maria almost gave up but we must have been guided by the spirit because in that lesson we brought with us the member that was prefect for that situation. He basically went through the same thing and knows the whole process to get married here in PR. It was like an answer to her prayer. Because she is dead set on being baptized! Which is awesome. Makes us know that we've done our work. Now we just have to close the deal, but it'll take a little longer. I just hope they can get baptized this transfer!

Yassiry and her daughter are good, but Satan is really working with them. Not like tempting them or anything. But lately almost all of their family members have been in the hospital. So it's been ridiculously hard to see her, and she wasn't able to come to church so we have to change that date too. But it's all good, we're confident that all these people will hit the water soon!

I love this gospel and I know it's true with all my heart. It's the greatest thing we have.

Love you all!
