Hello wonderful people that read these letters.
Happy late Mothers day to all the mothers out there.
The subject line of this email is derived from the fact that our english investigator, Chris, called us brothers, they bye initiating us into the hood. We had a really good lesson with him this week, and Elder Vance was teaching with power and authority the whole lesson. We were teaching the plan of Salvation, and Chris had some doubts about his own faith and whatnot. The whole time, Elder Vance was being bold, and even shared a scripture that when Chris heard it, he said "ah, so you ganna put me in my place." He wasn't offended, but the Spirit definitely hit him and helped him get over his doubts and made him more committed to read the Book of Mormon.
We've also taught a lot this week Griselda and Delia, a mom and daughter, who agreed to be baptized. Its been great to see all the progression they've made as they're learning about the gospel. They're soaking it all up, and are keeping their commitments. Griselda always asks good questions showing that she really wants to understand. Everything has just been falling right into place with them. She got a new job where she doesn't have to work on Sundays and has time in the evening that we can come over and teach. The Lord works miracles. :)
Another exciting thing that happened is I became an uncle! That also means my parents are now grandparents.....
Anyways, thanks everybody
Enjoy your week!
