A week of miracles SERIOUSLY!
I have such a strong testimony of the power of fasting and how it can literally bring miracles into our lives! A few days ago we were fasting to find new investigators, and we were walking down our beloved street Harostegui, skipping and laughing like little school girls waving at every person that comes our way, When all of the sudden I hear "have a nice day" and I was like whattt?! and we turn and it's this little abuelita smiling at us and so we start talking and she totally knows English and then her 91 YEAR OLD mother comes walking out with her little cane smiling soo big and so were chatting with them and they tell us that theyve been wanting to to talk to us for eveer now, that we always pass their house smiling and laughing and they have had the strongest desire to talk with us:)!. So we made a cita and when we went and taught them a few days later it was AMAZING.
So the younger one is a part of a religion that doesn't believe in God, and believes in reincarnation and all of that fun stuff. BUT she is SUPER open to listening to our message. And the 91 year old is catholic. so we taught them the plan of Salvation and the spirit was SO SO STRONG. Susana (the daughter) has changed religion's several times over the course of her life, so she must be looking for something more, and was totally listening and i know she felt the spirit. but the CUTEST thing was at the end, I offered the closing prayer, and when I finished, this cute little 91 year old abuelita had tears in her eye and was smiling SO big and said "me levante me levante!!" she was telling us that she felt like she was floating during the prayer and felt soooo happy and so much peace and I just about died:)! We were able to testify that, that IS the spirit testifying to her that our message is true. She wants to get baptized and wants more than anything to be with her family forever. I LOVE ABUELITAS. and the other one, her daughter, I have a lot of faith in. she is keeping her commitments, and is reading the Book of Mormon and praying, and I know that if she truly has a sincere heart and want's to know it is true, and continues reading and prayng, she will recieve her answer. so STOKED(:
Soooo many good things happened this week and I feel so blessed to be in the service of my Heavenly Father!
love you all! besos!
