Miracles and Service

Hey there beautiful people, what's up? Everything is great here, I'm loving it.

This week we had the opportunity to do a lot of service for la familia Ledesma, the recent converts of the zone leaders as they're building a room/second-story to their house, so that's been really fun. They're a great family, I'm glad we have this opportunity to spend more time with them.

Our investigator Livio is doing great! He came to the baptism on Saturday and loved it. Unfortunately he didn't make it to church again though, so we'll have to postpone his baptism another week, but he's eating up everything we're teaching him. The other family that we found also had some complications this week, so we haven't been able to see them, but we're seeing them tonight so that should be awesome! They're an amazing family.

We had a super cool miracle this week. On Friday when Livio wasn't home, we decided to contact a little in that area, and we knocked on the house of a lady named Miriam. She was pretty nice, said she was Catholic, but that we could pass by the next morning. So we went with the other Elders we live with so we could get in, and she was about to leave, so we invited her to church and left. Then we thought we forgot to invite her to the baptism, and so Elder McNeil ran back before she drove away, invited her to the baptism, and long story longer, she showed up to the baptism with one of her friends and they loved it! They started crying during the closing hymn "Families Can Be Together Forever" and came to church the next day too! They just ate it up and kept saying that they've been looking for peace, and they could feel it here! They're amazing, so we're hoping for the best there! An amazing miracle to see, I hope I get to stay to see more of it.

This is the last week of the transfer, and we think that Elder Sorenson and I are going our separate ways, in one way or another. It's been a great experience to be with him, I've learned so much and he's helped me improve in a lot of things. I love my life, hope everything's great for you guys too!

Con amor,

Elder Grondel
