Hola mi familia!
This week has been awesome! The main thing is that Mark Garcia and his family are progressing really well! Juana, his wife, actually had her baby last Tuesday, so that was awesome. It's made it hard for us to teach her, but just another week or so and she should be back coming to church. We went over and visited them in the hospital and said a quick prayer with them. The ward is really jumping on this opportunity to fellowship them. They are getting together to get different presents for the baby. They named him Aaron and mark instantly said "you know like the brother of Moses!" He's super funny. Elder Bradshaw and I both looked at each other because we thought of the son of mosiah first. But he'll get that soon.
We had an awesome lesson with mark, Michelle, age 8 almost 9, and joe, age 6. We taught them the restoration really simply and were using the pictures to explain. And when we got to the picture of Joseph smith getting the priesthood, mark made the connection on his own! He said "oh he's getting the authority to teach and baptize" and so we invited them to be baptized on the 25th of march. Mark and Michelle were super excited! Michelle was concerned she would be drowned, but we fixed that concern really fast! And joe was saying a bunch of doctrinally sound stuff about the devil and how he came to be. Mark just kept saying he didn't teach him any of that. And just told him you learn a lot in primary. That family is super awesome and super humble! I can't wait to keep helping them on this path of joy!
Other than that this week was a ton of tracting! We actually ran into an Egyptian and a guy from Iraq at two doors pretty close to each other. And both of them spoke fluent Spanish and 0 English! It was crazy because Spanish was the bridge language for both doors. It was actually really entertaining to hear an Arabic accent in Spanish. Now I know how the Hispanics feel when I speak it haha!
We also had interviews with president this week. Nothing to eventful, he just told us that the lord is blessing the providence area and that if we work hard then the miracles are going to start rolling out. Super motivating! I couldn't get him to tell me about transfers though, it was a nice try haha.
That's about it for my week! I'm loving life!
