pobre de Hermana Gibson is just melting out here! she's used to all the snow and wind all the time... but it's super hot and we're just getting started..! we're in for a fun ride! haha
we have been finding way to enjoy it though! there a lot of good plazas with lots of trees and we just hang out there and talk to everyone :)
We found a lady named Florencia who the Elders had visited about a
month or two ago and they left her a Book of Mormon and asked her to
pray but then we changed and we hadn't been back. she told us that she's
been reading and praying and she knows that the Book of Mormon is the
word of God! We invited her to be baptized and the Spirit touched her
and she's so sure about it. We've gotta just keep working so Satan
doesn't get in her way. We're going tonight to meet her partner with a
young couple in our ward and it's just exciting.
I've read lots of great scriptures this week and thought I'd share a few:
-And it came to pass that I spake unto my brethren, saying: Let us go up again unto Jerusalem, and let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord; for behold he is mightier than all the earth, then why not mightier (1 Nephi 4:1)
Heavenly Father has so much power and He wants us to succeed so we have nothing/no one to fear.
- But, behold, Zion hath said: The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me—but he will show that he hath not. For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee, O house of Israel. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
He takes care of us and never forgets us. His love is so great and powerful <3
well, I don't have much more. we've been struggling to find some of our investigators this week, but we have some goals to help them be baptized in November and December so keep on praying for them and that would be great :)
love you all so much
ps new district! two of the Elders are BRAND new <3 and they have such strong testimonies so this is going to be awesome.
