Week 34

This week was great! We found a man named Rafael. We walked by the house once, but they looked really busy so we knocked the door next to his house. No one was there, so we started to walk the opposite way when I felt that we should go back to the house before. So, we went back. At first, no one answered and one of the men outside stood up and walked away, so we thought they wouldn´t answer. But, shortly after, the other man stood up and told us to come in. We met his wife and talked with them for a little while before we found out that they had a long history with the church. The wife and daughter had been baptized a long time ago, but hadn´t attended church in many years. The husband, Rafael, never was baptized. We talked a little more and invited him to be baptized. He then told us about how he had almost died twice. He was sure that God had him alive for something more, and that something he thinks is baptism! This guy is amazing! We have only had two lessons with him, but they have been two of the most spiritual lessons I´ve ever had. Times like those make it obvious to me that God is leading us by the hand in this work. We have a baptism this Saturday! His name is Pegro Betancourt. His wife and daughter are members, so this will complete there family and give their family to opportunity to have the Priesthood in their house! I know that will bless them beyond what they can possibly imagine right now. We went to a national park for Pday today. It was pretty amazing. I´ll have Micaela post some pictures from it. Have a great week, everyone! I love you, Micaela! I´d like to remind all the guys to stay away from her. Thanks!
