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."

Hey everyone!
So, it is amazing to see the Lord do His work here through us. We are seeing Him change hearts and convert people to His gospel. First of all, the members here are FLYING! The ward council members have started to work collectivley to find, teach, baptize, retain and reactivate. That is a miracle in and of itself- it amazing to see. As far as investigators, we are working with Sabrina, the oldest child in the Pintos Family, and she is getting baptized this Saturday! She came to church yesterday, so it´s official, she has attendence, and is SO ready to get baptized. She told us yesterday that she has been reading the book of mormon and praying to know if it´s true, and yesterday she go her answer! She KNOWS that this church is true, and she even told us that she would like to serve a mission- That would be incredible! It would change her life. Her little brother, Sebastian, is still smoking, and he has been struggling with that.  He was supposed to get baptized this saturday with Sabrina, but he didn´t come to church. We got to have a really good lesson with him, with sabrina´s help. He´s the kid in the family that always get´s picked on, and he doesn´t feel like he has support or love from anyone but us. Sabrina was able to bear a powerful testimony of how the gospel has already changed her from a girl that was always partying and drinking, to a girl that knows Heavenly Father, and that is converted to His gospel. It was really cool, and Sebastian felt all of a sudden an instant bond with his sister that I don´t think he felt before. The atonement is amazing! It has been such a privilege to see it mend this family- they are changing! Even in their countenances they have more light! It´s legit.
Well, I don´t have time to write more, but know that there are a lot of cool things happening with other investigators and the atonement. I know that it´s real!
I love you all, have a great week!
