Don't worry, we got rid of the rats. But we are pretty sure that some spider laid eggs and they all hatched because one day we woke up and there were spider webs EVERYWHERE!! We didn't get bit, but we had to clean up all the webs. It was quite an adventure. :)
This week has been amazing! We have found so many new people to teach and lots of our investigators are progressing. We have been focusing alot more on part member families and how we can help their families become eternal families. We have found lots of new investigators this way.
The first one is Hermano Enrique. He is 80 years old and he is married a member of the church, Beatriz. We actually didn't know that he wasn't a member. They both come to church every week. They read the book of mormon together and pray every day. Someone mentioned that we should talk to him and once we found out he wasn't a member, we quickly set up an appointment. He has some problems with drinking, but we are working with him. He is super awesome! Another is Dominga. Her daughter is a member of the church and sealed in the temple to her husband and her 3 year old kid named Lucio. Lucio loves Superman. He is so cute. The daughter told us to stop by her mom's house and talk to her. We said we could the next day. We went home and looked in the area book, and we found out that TONS of missionaries have visited Dominga in the past. We were a little worried that she wouldn't want to talk to us, but we went anyway. She quickly let us in and told us she won't ever be baptized. We told her that was fine and we just started talking to her. She told us about her life and she started getting really emotional. We told her that Heavenly Father was just waiting her to be baptized, and she accepted! Whoo! What a miracle! We are super excited to work with her!
The final one in the Familia Cocuzza. Hermana Cocuzza got baptized 4 years ago with one of her daughters, Lilian. However....Hermana Cocuzza has 10 other children who aren't baptized! They are all grown up and have children and none of them are members of the church. Two of her children live with her in her house and we started teaching Paulino and Cristian. They are Hermana Cocuzza's grandkids. They both came to church with her yesterday. It was amazing! :)
Don't forget that there are always people to share the gospel with in your path! They are always there, and you just need to look for them. Pray to recognize who is prepared and just be nice and talk to them. Share the website christmas.mormon.org. It is super amazing and all about Jesus!! I love you all!!
