Happy 2016! Hope you had a good new years! We had a good time here and we got to have dinner with our good friend Mary and her family.
This week we had some funny moments and some spiritual moments, so I guess you could say it was a very good week! Some funny moments were a power outage in our apartment only (turns out we actually had electricity, we just hadn't turned the light switch on...haha we are smart!) and off-roading a baby stroller for about a kilometer to return it to our investigator Laura's house (don't worry there was not a baby inside.)
We are working with a young mother Karina who is a member of the church but has been inactive for years. Well recently she decided to return to church to help her family, and we have been teaching her the lessons. It is amazing to see how, years after being baptized, she is discovering how beautiful the gospel is and really being converted. She said that she had read the Book of Mormon before, but now it is different. Now she feels and recognizes the Spirit and wants to keep reading and learning more. This happens a lot - maybe the Book of Mormon or the gospel haven't changed, but we change, and our hearts change, because of different experiences in life that prepare us to really receive and accept the gospel. There is a time for everyone, we just have to trust in the Lord's timing.
Well I love you all very much and hope you enjoy a superb week!
Un abrazo (a hug),
