Sept 12: I Met a Famous Person!

This week we had transfers but the good news is that my companion and I are staying together in our area!!! wahooooo We´re so excited! We have so many big plans for this area :)

This week I met this lady named ¨Selva Vega¨ (google her) she is a sculptor and she has art pieces all over the world! in Europe, America all over south America! ah and her house is a museum! We first just talked to her on the street and she invited us to come back another day and when we walked in it was FILLED with her sculptures and I about fell over. I was so excited! I don´t know if she really wants to know much about the gospel but it´s awesome to say I met her!

We also had an opportunity this week to do our ¨Capilla Abierta¨. I explained it last week. It´s basically a big open house in the chapel where anyone and everyone can come and learn about what we do and what we believe in. Not many people came but it was still a success because as long as one person comes, we´re doing our job. We´re bringing in those lost sheep :)

Francisco: Ah this guy is nuts! His friend gave him a book of Mormon 15 years ago and he´s read the whole thing! We found him because we always buy our fruits and vegetables from him (yes we are eating healthy because we eat to much bad stuff. we´re getting better .... kinda. the food here is really good) anyway -  he always has questions and understands the scriptures so well! We set a baptism date with him and he came to church! wahoooo
Carina: Ya so she is a miracle. It was like the Lord knocked on our door and gave us this investigator on a platter. This woman went online and found the phone number to missionaries in our area and called them and asked us to come to her house. WHAT? okay great :) Her dad was a bishop in Utah for a long time but recently died. Her last conversation with her father was in the front of our chapel and he talked about how much he loved the church and wanted her to feel the happiness he has felt. ya so she has a baptism date too and she assisted church and loves all of the sisters! MIRACLES ARE THE COOLEST THING EVER!

DyC 24:7-8
For thou shalt devote all thy service in Zion; and in this thou shalt have strength. Be patient in afflictions for thou shalt have many; but endure them for, lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days

with lots and lots and lots of love
