Hola mi familia!
This week was stock full. One miracle that happened was that Jose Aguilar and Yeimi came to church today! They even did it after canceling on our church tour yesterday. We thought for sure they wouldn't come because of that. But prayer really does work. My testimony of this grows more each day. Last night one of the only things I really prayed for was that they would feel the desire to come today. Because I know that they know this is all true. They were just waiting for the perfect opportunity. So I pleaded with the lord that he would make it that opportunity. And they loved it. We texted her a few hours after and she told us that she loved it. And that they would be returning next week. I'm so grateful that I can be here working and be able to see God's children taking small steps in the path back to him. We have high hopes for this family.
So Friday was a fun day. We got to meet up with uncle Dan for lunch, which was awesome. It was really nice to see a familiar face. And it didn't even trunk me out at all! Haha. But it did make me really realize that I've almost been out a year and it really doesn't feel like it's been that long. And that I only have just over a year left. It reminded me of how short this time here really is and how I've got to make the most of it.
Everything else wasn't out of the ordinary. We spent a lot of our time finding and talking with everyone. And it's been working out really well. We have been really busy going around teaching a bunch of new investigators. Elder black asked me if we were forcing people to meet with us again, because it seemed like no one was saying no. But the majority of the people we found was actually there at the return appointment and they had actually read most of the pamphlet. It was a really cool thing to see. All the lord asks us to do is put our faith in him and go to work and he will do the rest. And he really does! I love what I'm doing and I am so glad to have the opportunity to serve the Hispanic population of Nashville.
