The Weeks Go By

This week was a great one here in Jd das Rosas. This week we were working really hard with the parents of Bruno. He is a recent convert of our ward who is extremely excited about the work. He is visiting people with us EVERY single day, and he is super active doing contacts in the street, bearing strong testimony. A great reminder of how we need to be. 

His parents are awesome, José had a problem with beer, but these days he made a decision to stop, and it has been 2 weeks that he stopped. He always cries, and can feel the spirit so strong. Lu is his mom, and she always liked us and just drinks coffee. She never showed a lot of interest until these days. We visited them on Saturday and we were able to have one of the most spiritual lesson in my whole mission.  We talked about the plan of salvation. And we explained everything about how we can have a family that lasts forever. And we were finishing the lesson and then we asked Bruno to tell us what this plan means to him. What a sweet spirit came into the room. He bore strong testimony of how he knows the plan is meant for us to be an eternal family, and then started to cry overwhelmed with the spirit saying how all he wants is his family to be more united and loving. And that he wants to have an eternal family. I was wordless (literally) and just said a prayer and left. 

On Sunday Jose and Lu went to church and loved it. It was testimony meeting, and 2 brothers of the church bore their testimony about how their families came to the church after their baptism and how they knew that Jose and Lu would be baptized soon :) They again felt the spirit so strong, this week we will work with them to get them ready for a eternal family through the baptism.

I know that this is Gods work.

We had our interviews with Pres. Which will be his last interviews, because he is going home at the end of June. 
I will have a new president for 19 days. :)
