P-Day on Tuesday

Our p-day was moved to today because of the soccer game.  

This week was another good one.  We had an awesome experience with an investigator named Luana.  A couple weeks ago we found her family when we were knocking on doors after a few appointments fell through.  They accepted to read the Book of Mormon and pray and be baptized if they received an answer to their prayers.  The next day we returned to see how it went.  Luana had read and prayed and felt something really good about the book.  She went to church and some of the activities that week and then went to church the next week.  The whole time she was reading and praying and every time feeling better about the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ.  We had marked her baptismal date for this past Saturday, but the Friday afternoon before she was still super stressed and scared to be baptized the next day.  We tried everything to help her feel calm about the baptism, but it didn’t work.  That night we prayed a lot for her to feel better so that she could actually be baptized on the next day.  We passed by the next morning to see how she was doing.  She answered the door with a huge smile.  She told us that she would be baptized no matter how nervous she was because she knew that it was what she had to do. Friday night she had read the Book of Mormon and then prayed one last time about her baptism. She felt a peace and then a bright light entered into her room. Luana knew she wasn’t alone and was completely positive that she needed to be baptized.  The baptism went really well.  The whole family watched and now wants to become members of the church too!  Heavenly Father really answers prayers.

I seriously feel so blessed every day.  Sunday was really cool too.  Elder Aguiar and I talk with more than 140 people a week in the street and invite all of them to hear our message and to come to church. In more than a year on my mission no one has ever actually come to church because we just invited them. This Sunday we recognized a young man enter into the sacrament room.  We went to greet him and he said, "Yeah so you guys invited me to church...and I came..." Finally someone came!  I was excited.  His name is Clevio, and he really liked the meetings.  I think he'll be back next week too.

Happy Fourth of July!!
