A Miracle Story

Hello how is everybody?!

this week was nice we have a miracle story

so we called this man that is a member who doesnt come to chuch ever. He answered, we said hi and asked how he was doing, also asked if he wanted to come to church with us on sunday, he said no thanks. we asked why not. He told us that he doesn't want to and started laughing, so we laughed with him. So we asked if we can visit him and he agreed. He invited us out to lunch and we brought an awesome member with us, hermana Canales, she is so spiritual and fun. She made the lesson a whole lot better.

He opened up to us a lot, It turnes out that he has been a member of the Bishopbric and has been in the young mens presidency and has gotten sealed in the temple, so he knows alot and he knows the church is true, but he and his wife were divorced but still live together he feels that he is not ready to go to church becaue he feels unworthy and like he is not being true to the promises he had made with GOd. I can tell that he was truly humble and that he needed the lords help.We shared some scriptures with him and bore our testimonies about the saviors help and love for us. The best thing about it is hat he is feeling godly sorrow that works repentance, for he wants to reconstruct his marriage and be active again, becaue he loves the chruch. We dont know why they divorced but all i know is that he can fix it and they can be a happy family again with the saviors help.  Do any of you have any good advice for us to help him, or maybe just for him? (you can share some talks, scriptures etc..) this is a difficult challange for us. He knows what is right, but just needs a good reminder. Anyway he came to church yesterday with his whole family! It was os GREAT!

today is my birthday and i woke up to a great surprise my housemates made some cupcakes and lit them up with candles but before that they ding donged ditched the door and filled the proch with balloond and then i saw them runn away. haha it was fun, they are so sweet, we just got back from the Zoo, it was fun :) thank you for those that wrote me letters for my birthday, it made me really happy and i loved the beautiful pictures!! you know who you are!!! :)
We are teaching a lot of less active members and we are working iwht one to get him ot progress more, by getting the Priesthood and going through the temple. WE also have another young married couple we are working with , he is a returned missionary and they are semi less active, his wife Liz has doubts about everything, but slowly the other elders helped her undestand that temple work is important, even for the dead, because there is an after life. As we we were teaching her the plan of Salvation, she had a question about baptisms for 8year olds, she felt that it is too young, although that at that age they already know right from wrong, she thinks it is a great committment to put a child under.I read the scripture that says "learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God" and that as a mother it is her job to help him live up to those commandments. Well she is a slow working progress, but we love her and will love her and help her through that journey to get married in the temple.

love you all gotta go!
