Love this gospel!

Future chapel site
This last week was great! Our two solid investigators, Denildo and Diego are progressing well. We are finding and teaching a ton! We started out the week with only a few people to teach but ended up being blessed to find 8 new investigators and also reactivate people! The Lord is so good and loves us.

We had an amazing conversation with a man. We stopped him and told him about our purpose. We told him that the church of Jesus Christ was restored again that we have a prophet (who we get to hear in less than two weeks! Booooyah!) and apostles who lead and guide us. We asked him, "What would you be willing to do if you knew that Christ's church was back on the earth?" "I'm not sure, there are so many and I don't know if I can believe." We told him, "Sir we are sent from a prophet of God, we will not lie to you. The church and gospel have been restored." It was so amazing a light came on in his eyes and he asked for us to come by next week to teach him! 

I love being able to testify to others that we have the same gospel here on the earth. I was talking to a man yesterday from the stake, and we discussed how every person within the church immediately becomes a missionary when the make the covenant to be baptized and confirmed. We all made this covenant as stated in Mosiah 18: 7 As ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light;

 9 Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life—

 10 Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?

I'm so grateful that I'm finally seeing and the Lord is opening my eyes to see that I have been called and always will be called to preach His gospel! I love this work and the blessings of it. 

Love you all,
