This is His work and His glory and we have the privilege to be apart of it

Hola Familia!

This has been a good week! Our trio went back to just the two of us as Elder Myers had changes this week.

Things with Hector are better. His wife still doesn't want him to get baptized, but she is letting us visit him. He even likes to visit our investigators with us! He shares his testimony at the end of every lesson. We put a baptism date for this Saturday and he said that he wants to do it.

Also Jenny who we were teaching, and had a baptism date for the 31st, had to move to Guate for work. She did promise us that she will send us photos of her baptism! It's bittersweet to not be able to be at her baptism, but I feel blessed for the opportunity to plant the seed that lead to her conversion.

We were talking with a family who had recently reactivated in the church. We were telling them about how Jenny was moving and that we weren't going to have a baptism that Saturday and the dad said, why don't you guys baptize my grandson Dani? We were like isn't he already baptized, and they said no. They said that he was waiting for his uncle to get home from his mission to baptize him, and last month his uncle got home. So the 31st, we will be having a baptism!

Also we saw a cool miracle this week, as my companion and I were praying to find the Lord's elect, we felt that we should go visit an investigator named Delia who the missionaries had dropped about a year ago. The reason why they stopped visiting her is because the owner of her house was a pastor of another church and he told her that if she came to our church that he would kick her out of her house. As we arrived at her work, she told us that she had been wanting to talk to us. She said that she had recently moved and that she now wanted us to come visit her. As we got to her house to teach her and her daughter, she told us that she wanted to get baptized, but was confused about it. We immediately taught her about the restoration of the church of Jesus Christ. She told us that she would pray and read the Book of Mormon and that if she received an answer, that she and her daughter would proudly get baptized.

I'm grateful for the help from the Lord. I know that this is His work and His glory and that we have the privilege to be apart of it.
