Now I will tell you what happened in that lesson. So the family is a family of 4. They are less active but the youngest son isn't baptized. He is 10. Anyway, we started to read a chapter in the Book of Mormon with them and all was well and we were explaining what was going on in the chapter. When.... The sister of the mom of this famly arrives with her family. A family of 5. They got there and so we now had two less active families with us and we were trying to think about what we were going to share. Somehow when the second family got there we got on the subject about last names and where our names come from and all that. So after that I just felt like we needed to talk about family history. I pullled out the booklets of family history and we started to explain them. Anyways, it was a very powerful and spiritual lesson. The mom of the first family I mentioned has her Catholic beliefs and a couple things happened when they were going to church which made them stop going to church for a little bit. The mom up to that point was open to listening to us but didn't really want a lot to do with the church. But after the lesson and talking about baptisms for the dead she started to say that she would really like to do the baptism for her mom. Then the mom's daughter started saying that she wants to go to the temple. And the other family, the parents are sealed but for some reasons they have stopped going to church. But last night we were able to make goals with both of the families that they could start coming back to church and one day make it into the temple. The spirit was so strong last night and was truly testifying that the families here on earth can live together forever thanks to the priesthood power that we have here on earth to seal families.
That was one lesson. Another cool lesson that we had this week was with another less active. His name is _____. We had planned to teach him about the restoration that day. We were starting everything up we said the prayer and ever since we had walked into the house I just felt like we should change it to the word of wisdom. So we changed it and we started to teach and even though we didn't know it was a problem before, we started teaching and we found that he is having a couple of problems with the word of wisdom. At the end of the lesson the spirit was also very strong and he started crying and we had another lesson with him last night and he was doing so much better!
Another cool lesson that we had this week was our first lesson with an investigator. We went into her house and it was just her, then her mom came in, then after a while, her other sister, then after a while her other sister with her husband and their child. So we were teaching the restoration and everyone there in the room were very firmly in another religion. It is amazing to see what the spirit can do. We were teaching and at first they were hard and stubborn but after we testified and kept teaching they softened up and they all started listening and asking questions. It was crazy cool! They felt the spirit and we could feel the spirit and they invited us back for another lesson and we have that this Tuesday so hopefully all goes well again. But seriously the Spirit works miracles!!
It was an awesome week and we definitely had a lot of success! This week will also be very exciting and strange. Exciting because on Sunday they are dedicating the temple of Trujillo! And Saturday there is a cultural activity from Perù that we get to see and it is so awesome. Weird because tomorrow we have a change meeting and we are getting our new President. It is crazy to think that The Borgs are ending their mission and going. They were so awesome when they were here and it will be sad to see her go but I am sure the new President and his wife will be just as great.
That is all I have for this week family, I hope you all have a great week. I love you all. I am burning a shirt this week.
