Letter from July 20, 2015
Just call me Sister Thomas Edison because this week we discovered a heck of a lot of people who did NOT want to accept the restored gospel. Haha! But it's been good. We have had to drop quite a few of the old sisters' investigators who were just too comfortable in their non-progressing state. It's been sad, but effective! We have been knocking doors and visiting members which has been... successful... for the thousands of bitter Catholics who have cursed at us and slammed their doors.
But, we found one pearl.
I mentioned this scripture a few weeks ago, but it is oh so applicable, once again! See Matthew 13: 45-46 in English AND Spanish. Her name is Perla, or Pearl in English. Heavenly Father has a sense of humor in answering a pleading missionary's prayers. :) She's 18 and we're still working on her family, but it's a start. We had a miraculous lesson one (the restoration) and were on pins and needles to teach her about the plan of salvation because she recently lost her little brother. She studies, highlights, and marks up every pamphlet we leave. She prays more sincerely than anyone I know. Seriously, it's miracle time up in La Victoria right about now. Can't wait to see what will come next.
Until next week!
