Week 71

This week, we worked in Temuco, Carahue, Pitrufquén, and Freire. We saw miracles in every sector, but I want to tell you about some things that happened in Carahue. I was working with Elder Clay and Elder Tanke. They had been struggling to talk with people, so we started the day with the goal to talk to everyone! Well, we started talking with a lot of people and after a couple of hours, we talked to a lady in the street named Silvia. We asked her if we could share something and she said she was close to home, so we went in and taught her about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She said that she has a friend that is a member of the church. That friend, Elder Clay later told me, is the wife of the branch president haha. After teaching her about the gospel, we invited her to be baptized and she accepted. She is amazing and is so desirous to learn about what the Lord has planned for her. After that, we taught a couple other lessons and continued to talk with everyone. At 9:30pm, it got really cold, but we kept knocking doors. Just before we had to go home, we knocked one last door. A woman answered the door and told us to come in immediately. We went inside and she was there with her daughter. We began to share with them and, after a few minutes, we invited them to be baptized. Without thinking about it for second, they said yes. This woman had listened to the missionaries in Vilcún and loved it, but had not talked to missionaries since. We just so happened to pass by that day when she needed to hear our message. I know that as we share the gospel with the Lord´s children, He blesses us and leads us to those who need it most. He loves each and every one of us and has a perfect plan. As we trust in Him, and as we are diligent in this work, He will work miracles in our lives. I know that God lives, that Christ is our Savior, that the Plan of Salvation is real, and I know that  I can put my trust in my God and that He will deliver me and never fail me. What we teach is true. I have no doubt. I have seen and experienced too much to doubt it. A fullness of joy is only found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
