Holy COW! I`m finally writing you all an email! The work is hastening and it so cool seeing it happen! We`ve really been working with the members, doing service for them, gaining they`re trust, and helping them with the branch. It`s taken a little bit, but finally we are starting to help them be missionaries! Woohoo!!!!
We have a few SOLID references from the members, and they are willing to come with us to the charlas and prepare their friends to listen to us. THAT`s MISSIONARY WORK!!! Preparing your friends to listen to the missionaries by inviting them to church activities and bearing your testimony. Then, for two or three short weeks, the missionaries can work their magic, and then the missionaries pass them back to the members, ready and prepared to make covenants! OH BOY, I wish I would have understood that before the mission!
After that, Next saturday, we are planning a baptism for a 68 year old lady who is SUPER prepared to be a member of the church. She is almost exactly like Marta Lallis, super happy and ready to do anything! I love her so much! (But don`t worry marta, you`re still my grandma!) She has had a pretty rough life, but she has so much faith. Her name is Rosario, and she is going to CHANGE or little branch! I can`t wait!
There are miracles happening here in Lascano! I know that this is the Lord`s work, and that we are preparing the earth for the second coming of Jesus Christ. There are people WAITING to here the truth, and It`s our responsibility to put it in front of them so they can make the choice.
I love you all, and I hope you have a great week!Elder Carroll
