WE ACHEIVED THE GOAL OF 4 BAPTISMS IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER!!! WAHOOOOOOEther 12:15-1615 Behold, it was the faith of aAmmon and his brethren which bwrought so great a miracle among the Lamanites.16 Yea, and even all they who wrought amiracles wrought them by bfaith, even those who were before Christ and also those who were after.Wow. We had no one 2 months ago when we put the goal of 4 people. Faith does Bring Miracles!WOW these members. A member told us that she wants a visit from the missionaries cause we never visit her cause she doesn't have a man in the house (he died years ago). SO she told us to come over and she would invite some people. We got there and she said her friends canceled and couldn't come. SO we said well we can't come in without a man. So she said öne sec, i'll see if the neighbors can come ̈. She came back with a family. The dad isnt member, the mom is inactive for 25 years, they never answered the door to us, but said they were about to invite us over cause there 4 year old kid was begging to invite us over. We say hi to him in the street but apparently it has taken an affect on them.We are going to have another FHE with her and her friends another time.ANOTHER PERFECT MEMBER!So we were eating lunch, and the dad was chatting with us, and we shared a message about missionary work, and then he canceled his plans and asked to accompany us. He drove us, and was with us from lunch at 1pm to 7:30 at night. He is the best.Also the Torin Pino Family from Venezuela got baptized. They called us an hour before saying that they finally found a job but would have to cancel the baptism maybe. A friend told the mom to forget the Church and get the job and she told the dude no because she was gonna make a covenant with Jesucristo. Man, what faith. They are struggling to eat right now but it doesn't matter about the job because they want to get baptised. We were praying like crazy(we sent a message to the whole zone to pray) and she was able to push her start date back and be baptized, and get the job!!!!!!They shared such strong testimony and all the members love them and want to give them food and have them in their houses.My heart goes out to the people of Venezuela. I saw a group of people walking and we talked with them and they said that they walked from Venezuela. They have nothing and lots of them go without food. Some of them get desperate and rob or do something to eat so now they kinda have a bad reputation here.KEEP THE FAITH! (for you Blake)-Elder Hallsted
