We had a super cool experience this week. We have a new goal for contacting people in a week and so we were in the street contacting people and we ran into a couple that was carrying household objects in the street so we ran over and asked if we could help. At first they kind of rejected the help but then after we insisted and insisted they said ok ya, you can help. Then they said you guys are Elderes right? And we said yes and they started to tell us about how they lived in Maranga before and they were going to get baptized but they moved. So we got kind of excited and we asked how many are in their family. SIX. Seis. Wow. So we helped them moved and then we taught them a lesson and they are super happy and they have a desire to go to church and learn and they now have a baptismal date for the 21 of November! It was such a blessing! They are awesome and we were so happy that we stopped to help.
Immediately after this lesson we had an appointment with this guy who was going to be a new investigator. We walked in and he said, my family is also interested in listening! So three other people came and sat down. Turns out they had a cousin who served a mission in Mexico. They were really interested and we have another lesson with them today in the night time.
Last night we had a lesson with a part member family who went to church and they had received lessons for a long time. Anyways, we explained the plan de salvation and they really liked it. They said that it was the first time they understood anything about it. Before that, the missionaires had taught about it but they didn't understand anything. After we left, their daughter who is a convert, sent us a text saying that her parents were super happy and they were actually excited about everything.
Haha Carla, our convert got called on out of nowhere in the Sacrament meeting to give her testimony and she looked at us and said i hate you. Haha she thought that it was us that had planned it but we had no idea. But she gave a great testimony. She is doing great and her testimony is strong. We are now also teaching her cousin and her aunt.
All is well here in Zarate. Time flies by. I love you all!
