This whole experience made me think a lot about enduring to the end. Even though this family had tons of problems and drama last week, they stuck with what they knew was right. Vicki supported Oscar in being baptized and even Dora showed her support even though she was still a little angry with him. They may have had to walk blindly, not understanding how it was all going to work out, but in the end it did work out. The baptism was beautiful and they all felt the spirit and are so much happier now, as a family. Sometimes we have crazy drama in our life and we just don´t know how it will all work out, but as we hold strong to the gospel of Jesus Christ and continue in what we know is right, we can have the great faith that it will all work out. Even more, we can have the HOPE that we will have great joy in the end of it all... we can return to live with our Father in Heaven and enjoy the blessings of eternal life.
Such a wonderful week. We are also teaching a new girl named Yolanda. AH she is such a star! She is 21 and living alone, but has 8, yes EIGHT, brothers and sisters in a nearby city. When we first visited her, she seemed a little sad, didn´t smile a lot. But seriously just in this last week, she is SO much happier! You can see it! She smiles and laughs more! Yolanda gave a beautiful prayer yesterday when she thanked Heavenly Father for the opportunity to meet us because she doesn´t feel so alone anymore and she feels a lot happier. It´s incredible. AH! She is going to be baptized on the 7th of June. She came over to our house for lunch yesterday and ended up staying with our Pensionista for 6 hours! The Elders came after us to teach another investigator, then the visting teachers came, then an FHE... haha she is such a star! So happy and proud of her. So grateful that Heavenly Father sent us to find Yolanda who is truly prepared to hear this gospel.
Love you all so much! Praying for you lots and hope you´re all reading your Books of Mormon on the daily! Think of the blessings people!!
