This week was a success. We saw lots of way cool miracles and the Spirit worked through us in like everything we did!
Friday night we found these two girls and we were able to teach them a quick and powerful lesson about God´s love for us and the Restoration. There is nothing like testifying of something so true and just looking someone in the eyes and see them feel the Spirit.
Saturday night, we were walking to a persons house that we had talked to a couple days before. Passing the branch President´s house, I was thinking of the friend of his wife who we are teaching and that she had told me she would be coming to church the next day. I could have called her and just let her know but just kind of without thinking I said to my comp ¨I´m going to knock on the door.¨ I knocked and they let us in and just then they had visitors over. His cousin from Mendoza and her husband. They have a 6 month old baby super cute. We taught a way sick lesson with them and they were stoked to get a copy of the book of mormon. I had marked mosiah 2:41 and wrote my testimony in the front like we always prepare them, and the dope thing was that same verse is the one I felt we should share.
The lesson was sick and they came to church yesterday!! President told us yesterday that that same night the dude (Paulo) was standing there talking to him after and smoking. And then
he´s all ¨something weird is happening idk what is happening to me¨ and he chucked his cigarette. You want a more instant example of the power of the Atonement? You won´t find many. Super sick. Paulo reminds me of scotty from star trek haha.
Also a kid named Rafaiel came to church yesterday and got super excited when we gave him a book of mormon. He gave us a big hug and was super stoked. He´s 16 and we play soccer with him on tuesday nights.
All in all we are seeing the fruits of obedience and diligence. I love the scriptures and the mission and these people. Going full send if you know what I mean.
¨Do ye suppose that God will look upon you as guiltless while ye sit still and behold these things? Behold I say unto you, Nay. Now I would that ye should remember that God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansed first, and then shall the outer vessel be cleansed also.¨ Alma 60:23
