So this past Saturday the church released this way cool video called "Because He Lives". It's an amazing video, and truly helps in missionary work and in getting in the spirit of Easter! I will put the links of it and last years "Because of Him" video in this email. Watch it, it truly is great!
This upcoming weekend we have the opportunity to be able to hear our living Prophet speak, Thomas S. Monson, as well as the Apostles and other General Auxiliary leaders! I am way excited!
So scary story time! Just kidding, well kind of. My companion and I were out tracting in the country and it was almost time to go home, and it was way dark. We both felt prompted to try this one house before we were to go in for the night. Because of the lack of lighting, we decided to bring a flashlight with us to be able to see. As we were walking up to the house, a HUGE sheep herding dog came and was barking at us! And then suddenly this woman came running out of her house and yelled, "Who are you? What do you want?" followed closely by "I've got a gun!" And we were scared! We yelled back "We're the missionaries!" We couldn't really see much, but she finally got her dog under control, and then invited us in. We were a little hesitant, but as we started to walk to her front door, she said, "When I heard you say you were missionaries, all fear just left me. And I just felt peace." How cool! Anyway, we went in and got to know her and her daughter! And we plan on going back again, just maybe not in the dark!
This week we were teaching our most recent convert Jose with his mom present, and she asked us if we could teach her as well because she wanted to learn more about what her son was learning. So a few days ago, we taught her, and man, the Spirit was so strong. And during our lesson she commented on mine and my companions "glow" or "light". And that since Jose started coming to the LDS church, he's been starting to glow, and even more since his baptism, and she wants it too! And we asked her if when she came to know that the Book of Mormon is true for herself if she would be baptized, and she immediately responded with "Yes!"
