I think my memory has officially died because I really don't remember much about this week. Last Monday night we were invited to a Family Home Evening with Saturia and she taught us how to make arepas, which was super fun! This Sunday night we went to Tunja and then on Monday we went to another pueblo called Villa de Leyva. It was really cool and I got FRIED! haha. It started out super hot and then rained on us as we were walking an hour and a half back to the terminal. Long story short, we went to a Fossil museum and went to these blue ponds. A lot happened but I want to talk about the good stuff from this week so Ill end it with that.
We have 2 SUPER AWESOME investigators right now, Daniela and Osman! Daniela started the first lesson with the other Elders in Barbosa, so now we have the privilege of teaching her. In our second lesson with her, we asked if she would pray to know that what we are teaching is true and she told us that she has already received 2 answers!! We asked her more about it and it was such an awesome experience! She says she wants to be baptized but it's her family that is the obstacle because they are super Catholic and aren't supporting her at all and have said some other things that makes her scared to go through with it. However she said she wanted to fast, so we fasted with her this week for her family. Her Aunt is a member and has been explaining things to her like fasting and she was excited to fast with us. AWESOME! And then the other is Osman. He is the boyfriend of Katherin and seems a lot more interested than her. He came to church this week and in our class of Gospel Principles we had a tiny testimony meeting and he decided to share his! He said that he has had a lot of people talk about God with him but when we talk with him its different because he feels something different. He told us that someone told him that God puts people in our paths to help us and that for him, we are those people. SO AWESOME, right? The Lord is helping us so much in His work and it really is something un-describable when people actually want to learn, humble themselves, and receive the answers that God is so willing to give us! I am so grateful for this Gospel in my life. I know that our Heavenly father and Jesus Christ live and that they love us unconditionally. I know that The Book of Mormon is true and that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet today and I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church on the earth. I know these things because God has answered my prayers. I'm so grateful and excited for this weekend of General Conference to be able to listen to the words of God through the Prophet and the Apostles. I love you all and thank you for all of your love and support!
