Semana (Week) 50: ....Super Crazy Week....but AWESOME!

Zone Meeting in Uruapan!
So, we only worked like 3 days this whole last week, which was a bit of a bummer.  We had divisions with the Sisters that are under our direction 2 times.  First, we had to travel in the afternoon on Monday to head to the Uruapan Stake, then Tuesday, we had a Zone Meeting there.  Then we did divisions with the sisters until the next day and we didn't get back until really late on Wednesday. Thankfully Thursday, we could work, but then Friday, we had our Multi Zone Conference with the Chapala Stake and President Egginton.  After, we headed to Nueva Luneta with other sisters, and did divisions until Saturday afternoon.  Then Sunday, we had to come up with and practice really fast a Special Musical Number for Sacrament meeting with the missionaries.  Be ready to see us in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir next!

Multi Zone Conference
We have an investigator that is named Pablo (Fake Name). He is only 10 years old, and right now he is living with a family that is in the ward.  He has been living there for about 6 months.  He comes from a very very hard background.  In only his 10 years, he has been addicted to drugs and alcohol and we really don't know for how long.  He started to live with this family, and they started to help him, bring him to church and everything.  They are now planning to adopt him.  We have been teaching him for about 3 weeks.  He really is such a great kid and very smart, even though he doesn't know how to read yet.  What worried us is that he can't be baptized right now without his biological parents permission, because he isn't adopted.  Luckily, we found that his parents lived very close to this family, they know each other, and have a good relation. We first met his mom, and she accepted our lessons.  She has been so receptive, and went to church with the family and Pablo!!  And she accepted to be baptized!!! Then, just this week, we met his dad.  At first he really wasn't interested to listen, and told us that he just believes in God, not religions.  But we started to teach, and at the end of the lesson, he told us that he wants to go to church! He also was talking with someone in the street one day, and he asked randomly, "What religion are you!"  The man answered Mormon!! Then the Dad said...."Really? Me too! I want to go to your church."  We ended our lesson yesterday, and they both told us that they want to be baptized!!!!  How wonderful are these miracles that happen!  Pablo is going to be baptized this Saturday, and his real parents along with the adoptive parents are going to come. I left this lesson wanting to cry, feeling maybe how the prophets felt in the book of Mormon when they talked about their joy to see people choose the right. Wow, I just feel so happy! :)

Love you all!!!!!
