We are SOOOO CLOSE...
major key alert major key alert
We finally have people that...
- Read what we give them
- Pray everyday
- Come to church :)
We have been working with a special family, the Casas family. The mom has been less active for a long time and there are members of the family that have never had the opportunity to be baptized. The mom said "I love living the Mormon life because I've never felt so happy, but I don't want to return and then leave again." So, we had dinner with them and the brother and sister-in-law of brother Casas. Brother Casas' extended family is super evangelist, but we taught them all anyways. When we invited the Casas family to church, they just looked at each other kind of doubting....silence.....then the brother of brother Casas speaks up and says...
"Attend church and if you just attend once, God will help give you the desire to come back and never leave again."
Then brother Casas sister-in-law said the same! They aren't even members of our church and they are still helping us!!!! Well, they came to church. I almost cried tears of joy because they are just the sweetest! The father, Nelson Casas, is super excited along with their daughter Mia to come back and attend church again. We already know that Mia wants to be baptized and we are hoping that the father Nelson Casas chooses to do the same. So, that's the good news for the week.
Unfortunately, there is some bad news this week with the Lescano family. The dad is spiritually growing like crazy! You can just feel and see the light in his eyes. He prays with his twin sons Tomas and Matias every day and they read scriptures. Then, there is the mom, who is a member, who is less active and doesn't really want anything to do with the church right now. We did a special fast this past Sunday to ask God to soften her heart. They leave to go on vacation for a week, so we are praying that a big change will happen and they will move forward.
We are working with so many people right now! We just need to remain being obedient, work hard and it will come! We keep getting references and God just keeps putting people in our way, what a blessing.
