July 20, 2015

Hey everyone! 
Its been such a good week here! No super crazy experiences but so many miracles! earlier this year 2 teenagers got baptized in our area but the parents wanted nothing to do with the church.. but we have been visiting and teaching them since I got here and this week both the mom and dad accepted baptismal dates in August and they told us they want to be an eternal family!! holy it was so hard to hold back my excitement and stay calm when they told us, haha we left the house and were literally jumping up and down! Its seriously a miracle.
That same day we visited one of our inactive families and when we walked in the husband who hasn't been to church since he got baptized and pretty much dedicates his life to drinking was reading the Book of Mormon! literally I thought it was staged and I just starting laughing but he was for real and he told us that he is ready to change his life! 
We ended the day with an appointment on the top of a hill that over
looks all of Cochabamba and as we were heading home we stopped to look at over the city and there were fireworks everywhere! haha we have no idea what they were celebrating because nobody said anything about a holiday and fireworks arent even legal here hahah but it was the PERFECT ending to a perfect day, and week! 
Its so true that this really is the Lord´s work and we are really just instruments in his hands, finding the people that he has prepared for us. I couldn't be more grateful to be here learning and growing and for the opportunity to truly see the difference that the gospel makes in these peoples lives. 
I hope everyone has the best week! Thanks for all the love and support from home!
