Sister Avalos

Week 56

Hello family and friends!!

This week has been such a special week for me!!

So about 4 weeks ago we found Ana Beatriz. She is 20, one day she was waiting for the bus and we stopped to talk to her. We gave her a pamphlet of the restoration of the gospel and we started to teach her.

Ana Beatriz has spent her WHOLE life searching for religion but she never found what she was looking for. We started to teach her and every lesson we could just see her improving, and her testimony of the gospel grow. Ana
Beatriz is someone who i just connected with right off the bat, and every time we taught her my love grew for her even more! She told us last week that she knew she didn't have to keep looking for truth because she knew that what we were teaching her was true. I think when she told us this it was probably one of the happiest days of my life!! My companion and I, and the member we were with literally could feel the spirit so strong, we felt so much joy.

Saturday night she had her baptismal interview and Sunday she entered into the waters of baptism!! It was such a special day. I know me and my comp was sent her to find Ana Beatriz!!

This last week we taught lots about the gift of forgiveness.

Saith the Lord : though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

I was able to share this scripture lots last week. I know we can be COMPLETELY forgiven if we humble ourselves before the Lord and truly change our ways and hearts.

Oh how I love this gospel!! Thank you all for the emails, prayers and support.

ps. Cristina is going to be baptized, we just need to find a day when her son will be in town so he can be present.

Love you all!! Sister Murphy
