The importance of having faith and the Spirit with me

Hola Familia!

This week has been another great week! Especially due to a miracle that we experienced this week.

So we have been teaching Hermano Wilson since we've been here in Sion. He's really nice. His wife and kids were baptized about a year ago. But he still hadn't made the decision to be baptized. During the 2 months that we have been teaching him, we have invited him to be baptized like 5 or 6 times and he always said that he wanted to, but that he didn't have the desire to do it. We also invited him to church every Sunday, but he never came. But one thing that he has been doing, is reading the Book of Mormon.

Finally last Sunday, he came to church with his family. When we saw him there, we were completely shocked!! We didn't believe that it was him. This last Tuesday we visited him and asked how was church and what helped him decide to come to church. He told us that he has read to Alma 23 and that he knows that the Book of Mormon is true, and that he can't deny it. After hearing that of course we invited him to be baptized and he said yes. After that my companion asked him when, and he said as soon as possible! So we will be baptizing him on the 13th of this month!

I think the best part about the mission is seeing all the miracles. I could be the smartest missionary in the world, but If I don't have faith or the Spirit with me, then I cannot be successful. When we have those 2 things, it doesn't matter what we say, because the Lord will always do His part to touch the hearts of our investigators.

Other than that, this week I got parasites and an intestinal infection.......but overall I would have to say that it has been a really good week!
