Do you remember in my setting apart blessing when President Bradford said that I will have quick, immediate success in the mission? It is happening!! I have only been here in Tucson for, what, two weeks? Three? And we have 7 investigators with baptismal dates and many more who we are teaching and working with and finding more every day! The Lord is SO aware of us, no matter who we are or where we are. There is another thing that I feel like I need to say real quick. In my setting apart blessing, he also blessed my family with the blessings of heaven because of my service and that all of you will be blessed because of me being here. I don’t know if that has already happened, but I do know that it is TRUE. Every day something in my setting apart blessing is reaffirmed to me and happens. When Heavenly Father promises us blessings, He always follows through. It is up to us as to whether we will be obedient to receive the blessings, and as I am trying my hardest here, I know you guys will be blessed! I love you all so much!!
The Lord is SO aware of each of us along this work of His!! This week has been another one full of milagros! I have a feeling that each week durtante este mision tiene la potential ser una semana de milagros, if we as missionaries are obedient and willing to do all He asks us to do. We have had so much success here in the El Rio Branch. The Lord has prepared los miembros de este barrio para recibir sus hijos. El campo esta lista y ya para la siega. This week mi companeria y yo have been working con una investagadora quien esta lista hacer una conviento con Dios. Her name is Petra and she has been meeting with us every day, preparing for her baptism on the 27 de Septiembre. Every time we go to her home, the Spirit is SO strong! I know I am not supposed to have ‘favorites’, but she is my favorite! Every time we go over there, she is so ready to hear what we have to teach her. She has prayed about the Book of Mormon and reads it every day and loves it so much. We have had members go with us and she is coming to see a baptism next Saturday. Personas such as her are why I decided to come on a mission, to be able to bring my brothers and sisters unto the same knowledge that I have received for myself, knowledge that has brought me more happiness and joy in this life than I could ever hope to obtain otherwise. We have also had two more baptismal dates with investigadors! Today, we had a lesson over the Restoration and both he and his wife (Rudy and Pricillia) committed to read the Book of Mormon and be baptised. This sunday we also had a family come to church with us, a single mother Rosenna and her five children, and she has a baptismal date and has agreed that we can teach her kids, of which her oldest two are above the age of 8. The Lord has been teaching me so much. We have also found two other families who are so excited to hear our message and we have return appointments to see. Cuando estamos obedient and constantamente buscar para those who are listos, the Lord will find them, I know this!”
