D+C 123:12-13

"For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties and denominations...who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things [out] of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--these should then be attended to with great earnestness."

So, first of all, I´m sorry that I haven´t written in so long! Things have been pretty busy around here.  And some really exiting news- We have to baptisms planned for the 21st of may!!! Anderson and Gervacio Pintos. (Gervacio is Anderson´s dad.) We found Gervacio tracting, and we found Anderson while we were teaching him. They are so cool, Gervacio is this old farmer man who lives by himself, but all his kids live por la vuelta and visit him everyday. Anderson is always with his dad checking up on him, and has a lot of faith in God. He´s been looking for truth all his life, and says that in all the churches that there are, there is something missing. That they only ask for money, and put on a show. So he loved the restoration when we taught it, and knew it was true immediately. Gervacio is just a good old man that sits and listens, and he also believes easily. He can´t read, so Anderson has to read the book of mormon to him. But they accepted a baptismal date when we taught the Doctrine of Christ and invited them. We are super stoked!
Also, we are working with a lot of other investigators that are starting to show up- one of the ones that is progressing the most is Erika, who was a refferal from Macarena, a young women in the ward. We´ve been teaching her for a few weeks with Macarena, and is really starting to progress. We are excited to see  how she does!
I love the mission- I started thinking about how fast the time has gone. I don´t want to leave! But It has given me an unmistakable testimony that this is the church of Jesus Christ. We have all the saving ordinances and authority that we need to make it back to the presence of God. With the power and reality of that fact, we have a responsibilty to bring that knowledge to light, and help everyone we can have that same opportunity, to make and keep sacred covenants.
Have a great week!
