Hey guess what! We have super neat investigators! I don´t even know where to start. So basically, this past month has been real rough with investigators, but we just decided to the one thing that was really in our control, talk to EVERYONE. A couple weeks ago we saw a couple of rebellious looking college age people, and talked to them. We were surprised to find out that one of them (Maria Jose with many piercings and tattoos) was actually very believing and VERY interested. So, she invited us to share with her AND her friends at her friends house! SWEET!
Well, turned out that all of her friend were receptive too, and we just go over there all the time to teach who ever is there! This week, we found out that the people who actually live there are Carlos and Berta, a young 21 year old couple who have been living together for three years. On Tuesday we passed by and Carlos as the only one home. Well, we had a member so we said "permiso!" and went right in and taught him! We taught him about the Book of Mormon, answered all of his questions and doubts, and invited him to read and pray. Well, when we went back on Saturday we taught both Carlos and Bertha and it just so happens that Carlos shared with Berta EVERYTHING we had shared with him the visit before, they had read together, and prayed!
They described to us that every time they talk to us or read the things we give them or pray, they just have this really good peaceful feeling. YEAH!! We were able to help them see that they can have that ALWAYS in their life by living the gospel. They wanted to go to church, but they were kind of scared because they live together and aren´t married and they were afraid that people would judge them for being there. We told them that they can´t be living together unmarried to be baptized, BUT they can go to church! SO THEY WENT!!!! WOO!!!!!!!!! They told us they LOVED it! We were super happy because all the members made them feel super welcome too.
PRAY FOR THEM!!!!!! They seriously are so great, but we are going to need a lot of help and guidance to help them take the decision to either get married or separate so they can get baptized. THEY CAN DO IT!!!!
Love you guys!
