February 13, 2012 John 4

Well the good news is that we had a baptism this last week. A woman named Noelia showed up to church on her own a two weeks ago and said she wanted to be a part of the church, and she had no problems to stop her progression and was doing everything necessary to develope her faith to get baptized, so she was baptized on Sunday. Now we are teaching her mom and her younger sister and her sister is so cool that before I even finished explaining how to do a prayer she started praying, so I just stopped midsentance and listened. Another miracle is that a member from another stake in Capital showed up today, because she used to live here, and brought her brother and sister in law who were married recently to church and they want to learn more about the Gospel. We also had the highest sacrament meeting attendance this past week since I´ve been here which was cool. When I got here we only had around 70 but this past week it got up to 105.

Something that the mission president just shared with me today was John 4. It is when Jesus is talking with the Samaritan at the well and it´s interesting to note that when his disciples had gone to town, eleven of these spiritual studs, they only come back with food and Christ teaches them pointedly that they needed to be focused on finding another type of food. Then John continues to teach us the importance of finding investigators through the members as he shows how the people in town came to listen to Christ because of the woman at the well sharing her experience with them, and then they believed in Christ´s words and were converted. He was doing missionary work through his recent convert! Que tal.

Con amor,
