This week was the first full week of the forty day fast. Its harder than i thought! I'm doing my best, but im grateful repentance is real! Haha. But we are seeing the miracles. We found one of our investigators that had stopped answering our calls, teresa, and she came to church this week! she is wonderful. And Rita is well on her way to progressing to baptism. She came to a baptism of the other branch this weekend and was talking about where she wants to get baptized and what clothes, etc. What a blessing to work with her.
Some funny stories this week. The other sisters that live in our house have a less active lady that they are working with, who is really really old. She lets the jehovahs witnesses come in and talk to her and stuff. shes really really old. Anyway, one night this week, the JWs came over in the middle of the sisters visiting. And their less active let them in! they all sat down at a table together, and then they started to talk. Well, i wasnt there, but the sisters came home and just really freaked out and talking about going home and really scared, and i was trying to calm them down because i couldnt believe it, but it was freaking me out a little, but they were like, if you were there you would want to go home too! they literally grabbed the book of mormon and showed us things we didnt even know... etc etc. it was a little scary. and then as i was about to call the zone leaders to let president know that they were on the edge of going home...
Sister cardoso came and told me it was all a joke. How it really went down was the JWs came into that lesson and really wanted to bible bash with them, and the sisters were like, well, there is no way out, and the entire lesson was the JWs trying to find scriptures and the sisteres teaching and testifying and the JWs not having answers. Sister Prieto even said that one of them you could tell felt the spirit as she testified and accepted a card from them at the end. So basically, we won. THE CHURCH IS TRUE!!!!!!!!!!
Also, we tried to go visit this lady this week and we walk up to the house to knock on the door, and from around the corner come running dogs, and my comp hates dogs and goes running, but i didnt get away fast enough and one of them nipped at my foot and got me. it wasnt bad, but my comp was freaking, so after going to the chapel and cleaning it up, we had to go back to the house and ask the people there if the dog had all its vaccines and stuff. we spent the whole rest of the day walking between that house and the chapel and then back again. but at least it makes for a good story.
I love you all!!!
Paz, amor, casamento do templo,
the castle today!
