Ethan Scott - week 32 - El Poder de Ayunando

The power of fasting. This week I have really gained a testimony on the power of fasting. Our area here in Paita has been struggling for a long time, so as a zone we were thinking of ideas that we could do to help improve our area. One of the Hermanas in our zone suggested a zone fast for our investigators and for our area. So, as a zone we decided that we would all fast. Let me say, it was the hardest fast that I have ever done in my whole life. When you are pretty much hiking in the hot sun all day without water and an empty stomach it is super rough. I thought many times, I can't do this, I think God has seen my effort. But, right as I was about to buy water I thought of my investigators and my area and I continued forward with my fast. As I finished my fast we received a call from one of our investigators named Braneli. Braneli is a girl that has received the lessons for 5 years and couldn't be baptized due to the permission of her parents. But, she called us extremely excited and said that her parents finally gave her permission! So, we are going to have a BAPTISM! I was sooo happy.  

I know without a shadow of a doubt that it was from the power of our fast. I know that God hears and answers our prayers as we act in faith, whether that be fasting, going to church, praying, or reading the scriptures. I know he will bless us. I hope you all are doing amazing! I love you all, and please put your faith in the Lord so he can bless you in ways you cannot imagine!


Con mucho amor,

Elder Scott
