This week has been a great week for us in San Juan, as the three of us are seeing miracles everyday!
The biggest miracle that we have seen this week is with our investigator Jenny. We found her one day contacting in the street. Now she is reading the Book of Mormon everyday! This week we told her that she needed to pray to find out if the church is true, and that she needed to pray and ask God if she needed to get baptized. The next day she told us that she got her answer and that she will be baptized the 31st of January.
I would ask you all of you to remember Hector in your prayers. He has been progressing and still has the desire to be baptized, but his wife and mother-in-law, who are of another faith, do not want him to get baptized. Yesterday we were in a lesson and his wife came out and told us to leave,that her husband was not getting baptized and that she would rather see him a drunk in the street than baptized in the church. Instead of fighting with her, we decided to be quiet and show respect. But can I just say that Hector bore his testimony to her, that he knew that the church is true and that it would be better that he died doing the right things of God. He said that there is not anything that will stop him from making a covenant with God. Instead of fighting, he bore his testimony to her, and it was one of the most spiritual experiences that I have seen on my mission.
Also this week I got a call from President Smith, that a group from Utah was going to come to build houses in our area, and that one of them knew my dad. I thought that was pretty cool. So today, they came and picked us up and took us to the construction site to help out. We got to meet and make appointments with the families that are going to live in the houses! It turns out that the guy doesn't actually know my dad but he does work with Uncle Jared!
This has been a great week and I hope and pray that all goes well with Hector!
