Dear Family and Friends,
This week was really challenging in a good way, I learned SO much, especially about faith.
Our area here in Bulaon is growing.
When I first got here we had very few investigators, but this week we found a lot more. We are focusing on a place in our area called San Rafael that used to have a branch, but because of some things that happened every member that lives in San Rafael fell into inactivity. We are seeing progress as miracles are happening.
One miracle that we saw in San Rafael, was when we taught Sister Jessica for the first time who was a less active member. She told us: Don't worry Elders I am going to church tomorrow. True to her word we saw her there early on Sunday morning.
One thing about Sister Jessica is that she has polio and it is a struggle for her to get around. We asked her how she got to church and she told us she walked! I marveled at her great faith and diligence!
Yesterday we taught her father, and he at first was really hard headed and told us he couldn't promise us that he would go to church, but at the end of the lesson as he said the closing prayer, the spirit touched his heart and his voice started to choke. After the prayer he said, Elders we are going to church on Sunday. I am so grateful for the Holy Ghost who softens the hearts of others.
Not much time but, I just want you all to know I love you very much and pray for you.
